16 hours without a correction -- must mean something

I first saw it on Cesca's blog, who picked it up from Talking Points Memo, who found it on the original AP story. It's quite telling that it was published 16 hours ago and hasn't yet been corrected. The paragraph in question (emphasis mine):

His top contenders are said to include Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Less traditional choices mentioned include former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, an abortion-rights supporter, and Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential prick in 2000 who now is an independent.
Cesca's great line was, "The typo isn't 'prick' of course -- the typo is 'in 2000.' As we all know, Senator Lieberman is a prick all the time."
