We’ve all made errors.* But this one is just too ironic to ignore. In a press release announcing Vice President Joe Biden’s schedule for the week, the name of the great state of Rhode Island was misspelled to note the gaffe-prone VP would be campaigning in “Road Island” on Thursday.
“On Thursday, the Vice President will travel to Boston, Massachusetts, Manchester, New Hampshire and Providence, Road Island to attend campaign events,” the memo sent out to journalists said. WPRI-TV was able to track down a copy:
WPRO-RADIO reports Biden is headed to the Ocean State to campaign for U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. It also says the error has been corrected.
But the Biden camp isn’t the only one that has had a hard time spelling campaign stops lately. Rick Santorum’s group did it too when it announced it was headed to “Bimidji, Minnesota.” It’s spelled “Bemidji.”
And if you find any errors in this post, they’re just meant for ireny. (Gotcha!)
*Heck, an earlier headline even spelled the mistake as “rode.” But is that just part of the “ireny?”
