Don’t blame the reporter. Blame that $%#&!@* “send” button.

In an email to readers on Tuesday, WaPo The Fix’s Chris Cillizza wrote a story about why President Obama shouldn’t run any more positive ads. But instead of positive he wrote “negative.”As you can see, he realized the error of his ways in one minute, which probably deserves some kind of award.

“Stupid ‘send’ button,” he wrote with a smiley faced emoticon.
