Doh! Typo Shorts DNC Donations to States by Millions

Monday, 01 Nov 2010 11:16 AM

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.

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.”
