As the blogger who first examined the contents of Jim Hagedorn's "Mr. Conservative" blog in 2009, we were surprised to read this in Corey Mitchell's story at the Star Tribune, Jim Hagedorn faces an uphill battle against Tim Walz:
Walz declined to comment on the blog post in which Hagedorn assailed women, American Indians, gays and national political figures that have recently resurfaced and are dogging his campaign.
There's an "s" missing on the phrase "blog post," since Hagedorn assailed women, American Indians and LGBT people in a number of posts during the years when he blogged.
Quite unintentionally, the Strib's typo might make it seem as if the reaction is to one ill-considered blog entry, rather than Hagedorn's steady stream of blither and spleen.
Bluestem hopes that the paper corrects its copy.
