The perils of predictive text?

While journalists should always strive for accuracy in reporting, I think we can let Dave Weigel off for this particular infringement.
 
In a Sept. 15 "Politics," David Weigel misspelled the names of former Colorado gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis, former Illinois gubernatorial candidate Adam Andrzejewski, Michigan congressional candidate Dan Benishek, and New York congressional candidate Nan Hayworth.
 
Reminds me of the (antique) story about the Pole going to the opticians for an eye-test.
 
“Can you read me the bottom line of the chart please sir?”
“Read it?  He’s my best friend!”
