WaPo: Let's Do the Timewarp Again

The lead paragraph for this Washington Post political piece, a preemptive strike aimed at suppressing GOP votes and campaign contributions, seems innocuous enough:
More than a third of the top fundraisers who helped elect George W. Bush president remain on the sidelines in 2008, contributing to a gaping financial disparity between the GOP candidates and their Democratic counterparts.
The only problem is the date beneath the byline: October 17, 2007. Now, we all know that campaign seasons have been starting earlier and earlier, but sheesh, are MSM political operatives really allowed to just delete a few months from the year?

Perhaps they're referring to Fiscal 2008?
