    And here I thought you’d photoshopped it as part of a smear campaign to keep Alito off the bench.

    Thanks for sharing. I am laughing so hard that I may have to change my clothes! Sometimes, when people goof, they don’t believe in half-measures.

    Newspaper error, yes.

    Somehow I suspect the person responsible did it on purpose and managed to slip it past the editors. Dissent can take on many sneaky forms.

    How cool would it be if it wasn’t a typo? If it was, in fact, true? As long as we’re living in bizarro world, why not go all the way?

    The flow of it is just great.

    Apologies. Now I see it. Purdue student newspaper, The Exponent.

    Two wire stories got merged, either an new one covering previously used space, or two new ones together. Notice that there’s no space btwn the period of the right sentence and the beginning of the wrong sentence.

    It happens, and if copy editors miss it, page editors should catch them. It probably happened near deadline. That’s when our daily used to add its wire stories to fill space.

    Ouch. Ouch plus, with the retraction.

    The article was printed side by side with the article on the building of the Popemobile.

    You can see the front page here.

    Reposted by me from Pandagon:

    Have fun….add your own.

    Q. “Judge Alito, did you shoot the pope?”

    A1: I can’t remember.
    A2: Yes, but the computer made me do it.
    A3: No, but I did have him strip-searched.
    A4: The Pope can read anybody’s mail he wants, it’s the doctrine of Unitary Papacy…what was the question again?
    A5: I won’t answer directly but I will say I tried myself and found myself innocent and I really don’t think I should have recused myself.
