The Nation is the political left's answer to National Review...only a lot more stupid. In today's "Best of the Web Today" column, James Taranto points out an egregious mistake in the first sentence of an article trying to connect Bush to the Enron bankruptcy.
When George W. Bush co-owned the Houston Astros and construction began on a new stadium, Kenneth Lay agreed to spend $100 million over thirty years for rights to name the park after Enron.
Of course, Bush used to co-own the Texas Rangers, not the Houston Astros. How can you mix-up an AL and an NL team?
Anyway, if you go to the article now, they've fixed it -- kinda.
When George W. Bush co-owned the Texas Rangers and construction began on a new stadium, Kenneth Lay agreed to spend $100 million over thirty years for rights to name the park after Enron.
Like I said, they kinda fixed it. Enron field is the home of the Astros, not the Rangers. The Rangers play at the Ballpark at Arlington, which curiously, is one of the very few new ballparks in this country that has no corporate sponsor.
The Nation needs to cut the entire first sentence and start over again.
