Defecating the Candidate's Qualities (While Dancing)

From a story on the WMAZ-TV website today, re Georgia senatorial candidate Rand Knight:

"Knight supporter, Beth Perera says "I think it is important for people to have a face to face encounter with the candidates otherwise it is just a list of names on a ballet and people can't defecate any special qualities about a candidate unless they actually meet them, talk to them, ask them questions."

The quote I just copied from the website says: Knight supporter, Beth Perera says "I think it is important for people to have a face to face encounter with the candidates otherwise it is just a list of names on a ballot and people can't differentiate any special qualities about a candidate unless they actually meet them, talk to them, ask them questions."

Then the site was updated after numerous howls yesterday. The original said "defecate" and a half dozen other misspellings, etc. I'm looking at the original posting in email.

I heard a reporter the other day talk about a politician visiting a "non-dimensional" church. Don't you love tivo.

Well, it must have been a mistake by whoever posted the story, because in the video of the woman making the statement, she says "differentiate".

Agreed. Let us hope that the stations uses a computerized voice-recognition program to generate its transcripts, plus some careless proofreading by a human.

The Onion got there first. They told us that this election would be decided by bullshit.
