And so the race card is played, and not, we imagine, for the last time. Rensselaer County elections officials on both sides of the aisle are throwing up their hands in horror, calling the slip a simple typo, though the Albany Times-Union notes that "s" and "b" are "not exactly keyboard neighbors." One voter who was one of 300 to receive the poorly spelled ballot told the newspaper: ''It's a little suspicious and at least grossly incompetent. If I crossed out the name and wrote in the right spelling, my ballot would be invalid." No word yet on what the real Osama thinks of being on the ballot.
