Faithless elector in MN

Looks like somebody did a little something funky, and gave an electoral vote for president to John Edwards when the other nine went to John Kerry. I love how this article specifies that the way they vote is to handwrite the candidate's name on an 8.5x11-inch sheet of paper (no checkboxes, hanging chads or touchscreens here, folks), and then speculates that it was an honest mistake. But one would think, if it was a mix-up "between the Johns on the ticket" as the writer says, wouldn't Kerry have gotten a vote for VP? Makes me want to just bust out laughing, actually.
