Alert reader PN catches Paul Krugman in what appears to be a grievous error.
Krugman: "When [Fred Thompson] ran for the Senate, however, his campaign reinvented him as a good old boy: it leased a used red pickup truck for him to drive, dressed up in jeans and a work shirt, with a can of Red Man chewing tobacco on the front seat." (emphasis mine)
Red Man comes in pouches.
Doesn't change Krugman's point about authenticity narratives and candidates (nothing new, actually), but funny nonetheless.
