The New York Times misidentified the man Sen. John McCain called an “agent of intolerance”:

Because of an editing error, an article last Sunday about Mitt Romney’s commencement speech at Liberty University misstated, in some editions, the year of his last presidential run. It was 2008, not 2004. Also because of an editing error, the article misstated, in some editions, the surname of the evangelical leader whom Senator John McCain called an ”agent of intolerance.” It is Pat Robertson, not Pat Roberts.

    Craig, Could I suggest that you “dig deeper”?

    Pat Robertson Says Oral Sex Is Fine If You’re Married (VIDEO)…/pat-robertson-oral-sex-is-ok_n_134751…15 Mar 2012 – But while Kristi Watts was overwhelmed by the inquiry concerning oral sex in the context of marriage, Pat Robertson took it in stride.

    Oral Roberts. Oral Robertson. Pat gets with the future.

    There is always a reason for everything. 

    Error often has such a paraphonic source. 

    If it leads to everyone having a good time, I can’t see anything wrong with it.
