Obama 1, Kristol 0

William Kristol's column for the New York Times is now headed by the following disclaimer:

In this column, I cite a report that Sen. Obama had attended services at Trinity Church on July 22, 2007. The Obama camapaign has provided information showing that Senator Obama did not attend Trinity that day. I regret the error.
It must be embarrassing to have to admit that one piece of evidence you provide to make the case that the subject of your column is a dishonest individual turns out itself to have been a fabrication by a dishonest individual. Not to worry, though. I'm sure Kristol will take it in stride.

In closing, I do think it's worth noting that while Kristol apologized for his error, he did not think it necessary to apologize for calling Obama a liar. Curious, that...
