Not really. The IRS said it was "not appropriate". That indicates more than a clerical error. They also said it was an error in judgment and "insensitive". Clerical errors wouldn't normally be considered poor judgement. They'd be considered errors.
There's nothing misleading about the title, really.
Jay Carney said it was "inappropriate". If anyone is presenting it as something it's not it's you. You're making it look like they just entered keystrokes incorrectly.
