Are you qualified for a copyediting job at the Washington Post? Thanks to National Review Online's "The Corner" for pointing out this little faux pas from the Post.
U.S. District Judge Dennis W. Shedd, 49, has the support of the White House and both senators from his home state as well as other prominent members of the bar there. Shedd spent 10 years on Capitol Hill as a top aide to Sen. Strom Thurmond (R), who nominated Shedd to the appeals court last May.
You'd think that copyeditors there would realize, even if the reporter does not, that the president nominates federal judges, not senators.
