AP Got It Wrong

Surprise, surprise.

Over the weekend, an AP story was widely circulated on the web and blogs that stated, "Bush has electoral college lead".

First off, the general election is still months away. As of 7/26/04, Bush and Kerry remain tied in the electoral college, 0 - 0.

Secondly, as Stephen Crockett and Al Lawrence point out, the AP story is flat out wrong (by either sloppy writing / editing or intentional bias). Of course, AP will issue a correction? Right? Heh.

(It's also curious how the AP has changed the headline over the past day or two. Do a google or yahoo news search.)
