Much Ado About Nothing

Seems a lot of folks are getting their knickers in a twist over this AFP news photo and headline that seems to incorrectly label Eliot Spitzer as a Republican.

Well, here's another AFP photo that says he's a Libertarian.

And, this one has him labeled as a Communist.

Hey, wait a minute!

Why, it's almost as if those letters stand for something other than party affiliation - like right, left, and center, maybe?

That said, if he's the one in the center in that third picture, who's in the podium? Dude, there's a time and place for everything. This might not be one of those times or places.

UPDATE: Ummm...

Seems a reader over at NewsBusters wrote the AFP to bring this non-error to their attention, and got a reply acknowledging, and vowing to correct, said non-error.
