The Ada County Lincoln Day Association’s registration form for its March 17 banquet has left at least one Republican scratching her head over a document riddled with typos. The anonymous writer sent me a copy with this exclamation: “What an embarrassment!”
Having made plenty of mistakes over the years, I report this without scolding. But the errors are so numerous I thought them worth noting. Gov. Butch Otter, First Lady Lori Otter and Idaho’s four GOP members of Congress are among the headliners.
The price for advance purchase is alternatively listed as $49 and $50 for the dinner at the Boise Centre, which is called the Boise Center on the invitation.
Other misspellings include “opiinion,” “sponsorhip and “opportuntiies.”

The keynote speaker is David Keene, opinion editor of the Washington Times. Keene is a former president and current board member of the National Rifle Association and a former chairman of the American Conservative Union.
Reservations are available online.
I emailed the two contacts listed on the form, Michele Jarvis and Steve Cory, on Thursday asking who authored and proofed the invitation and how ticket sales are going. Neither has replied. My emails were not returned, so I expect their addresses were correct.
