An error in the Tennessean? What else is new ...?

The Tennessean has a long history of glaring misstatements of fact, so I guess I shouldn't have been so surprised when I read this in the morning paper:

"U.S. Rep. Lincoln Davis [D-Pall Mall] ... is considering a Senate run in 2010."

Tennesseans will not be casting votes for U.S. Senate in 2010. Sen. Lamar Alexander is running for re-election this year, and Sen. Bob Corker will not face re-election until 2012. Seems like a reporter for a major metropolitan daily would know such things. And if she didn't, her editor should've. Right?

That said, Lincoln Davis might just find his way onto Tennesseee's statewide ballot in 2010 ... as a gubernatorial candidate. But he ain't gonna win. I said as much a couple of months ago.
