Talk about cheap: The Democratic National Committee seemed more like King Miser than a kingmaker when it issued a news release during the weekend touting how much it had given to 11 state parties to divvy up among themselves for last-minute expenses on the eve of the most momentous midterm elections in years. The penny-pinching tally: $2.67. Only King Midas could turn that brick into a bar of gold.

Democratic National Committee, donation, tyop, Los Angeles TimesBut it was just a pricey typo, points out Los Angeles Times Top of the Ticket political blogger Andrew Malcolm, who provides some levity amid all the intense politicking with his observation that, if the release were accurate, two states would have to pool their resources even to buy a stamp.

But the figure “really should have been $2.67 billion,” Malcolm notes, before adding: “No, just kidding. But with all the money flying around from both sides this campaign, you believed it for a second, didn't you? The DNC meant to announce the amount distributed was $2.67 million. Billions, millions, what's the difference? One letter.”

And, of course, more zeros.

Besides, the really big numbers are yet to come, Malcolm suggests, advising: “Mark your calendars for Dec. 1, when the president's deficit commission is scheduled to report.”
