I laughed so hard I almost did a spit take on my morning newspaper when I saw this story about a mistake in a candidate’s name on Chicago voting machines:
It’s the typo to end all typos: Illinois gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney’s name is misspelled as “Rich Whitey” on some electronic-voting machines in Chicago, and officials say the problem can’t be fixed before election day.
Maybe he should have stuck with “Richard,” or chosen “Dick” or “Rick” as a nickname. (I’m not blaming the victim–I’m just sayin’.)
