You didn’t seriously think this was a real typo, did you?

From Charles Blow’s column in the New York Times, Rand Paul Goes to Howard, listing all the various grievances African-Americans have with the modern Republican Party (a list, I would venture, closer to incomplete than not):

They lost it in 2011 when a Republican presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, who was the front-runner for a while, falsely and preposterously claimed that: “Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works. So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day. They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash’ unless it’s illegal.”

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

Correction: April 11, 2013

An earlier version of this column misspelled the surname of a former Speaker of the House. It is Newt Gingrich, not Gingrinch.

Trust me: this was no accident.
