Hmmm...because I'm still riding high from the power, effectiveness and raw emotion of the speeches on the first night of the Democratic convention, I'm just going to give Politico the benefit of the doubt that this was just a careless error in the rush to get content up fast.

We in the blogosphere get that. I've mistakenly labeled members of the House of Representatives as senators in posts. I've misspelled names occasionally. It happens. Things move fast and some times, you have to race to get the scoop.

Because I really, really would hate to think that the outfit that Rachel Maddow astutely called "effectively the Romney campaign newsletter" had a hard time distinguishing between Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Newark Mayor Cory Booker for some other reason.

Can you help us out?
