Going on cable news always is a risk anyway, but MSNBC outdid themselves last Monday, when they posted a graphic using the most egregious misspelling of the black Republican consultant's name.

Innis, who was being interviewed about the Enron case, was refreshingly unwilling to grandstand over what obviously was a highly embarrassing error. "It's not the first time it's happened, but, hopefully, it's the last," he said.

MSNBC quickly offered both on-air and written apologies.

Loud-mouthed, self-serving politicians and wannabes could take a lesson in class from this guy.
