Third time was the charm:

    I just read a story about a Rethuglican politician named Doug Collins who’s running for Congress in Georgia. He beat out a Tea Party-endorsed candidate, so I checked his website to see if he was even more of a whack-job. While doing so, I read some of his policy positions, and almost every paragraph had a spelling error or confusing punctuation.
