Pot. News Watch

Could someone please, PLEASE!, tell the Pot. News, that national elections are held in even years, not odd ones. Senator George Allen's re-election race is in 2006, not 2007.

In its lead editorial today (sorry, no link; they're slow over there), the Pot. News starts out by noting that:
Gov. Mark Warner confirmed this week what many political pundits had predicted. He will not challenge U.S. Sen. George Allen in 2007.
(emphasis added). Later, it makes the same mistake:
By not challenging Allen in 2007, Warner has taken the path of least resistance toward a challenge for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.

(emphasis added).

Once might be a typo. Twice seems careless.

UPDATE: OK, the link is here. And apparently, my old friends at the Pot. News don't come here. The mistake remains.
