AP gets it wrong

The Associated Press has misrepresented the "stuck in Iraq" comment in an article on a mocking banner created by some troops as a response:

MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 2) - A group of Minnesota National Guard soldiers in Iraq has made a comically misspelled sign mocking Sen. John Kerry's recent comments about the education level of troops, and their handiwork is getting plenty of attention.

Kerry's comments were never about our troops or their educational level. The fact that the AP has made this statement suggests that they have been taking their cues from Karl Rove.

Intentional deception or simple mischaracterization, their statement is false.

Time for the AP to issue a retraction and apology.
