What's in a Terrorist's Name?

Should we take Marc Ambinder's critique of the Barack Obama/William Ayers story seriously, when he knows so little about it that he can't even spell the terrorist's name properly?

Typos happen. Goodness knows I make enough of them. In this case... the names would be pronounced the same, wouldn't they?

Maybe he's just trying to imitate our continental betters: theater v theatre and check v cheque. More sophisticated, you know.

The Kool Aid drinkers over at the Atlantic are an utter joke, to say the least.

Could you imagine if McCain had been involved with some Militia type who had put a bomb in a federal building and till this day feels proud about it??????????

They would all be singing a different tune, just like they tried to pin Timothy McVeigh on talk radio...

I read Marc Ambinder every now and then however I know that he's prone to misspelling alot on his site. Does that mean he's illiterate like McCain on using the internet? Of course not. It's just stupid typos so I don't know if you really had to make an article on a typo.

You can not be serious...

Funny thing: I signed up to get a text message from O'Reilly's show, and it had the exact same misspelling since tonight's episode was about Obama's radical friend. Weird.
