Another One for the "Words Mean Things" File
Apparently words mean quite a lot to the American Family Association, so much that they have computers that scrub their way through AP stories before posting them swapping out the word Democratic Party and renaming it the Democrat Party. Interestingly, yesterday, a different scrubber went awry, changing an athlete competing for the Olympics' name from Tyson Gay to Tyson Homosexual. Hmm... that's interesting. Seems Mr. Homosexual "eased into" this year's Olympics, so perhaps we'll hear more about his exploits in the weeks to come. Meanwhile, coverage and a screen capture of the erroneous and bizarre event was posted at hte Salon.com war room here.
