Be the change

This ad from Americans United for Change asks viewers to call Minnesota Governor Tim Tom Pawlenty about the Al Franken vs. Norm Coleman race for the U.S. Senate, which is still undecided.

They may be united for change, but unfortunately, their spelling of governor is not the kind of change MRP can believe in.
Hat tip to Z, who spotted this tidbit here.


Bonus MRP moment: for those of you who have missed John McIntyre in his old spot at The Baltimore Sun, you can now find him at his new blogging home.



  1. Speaking of typos, the governor’s name is Tim, not Tom.

  2. Shoot, thanks. Well, folks, here’s a good example of McKean’s Law (“Any correction of the speech or writing of others will contain at least one grammatical, spelling, or typographical error”)!
