More Dean Theology

I seem to remember seeing the following quote in the now-infamous God-wouldn't-make-sinners interview, something like this:

Dean said that he also preferred the original New Testament version of Jonah, which says that Jonah lit a fire inside the whale to force it to spit him out on the shore. He said he found it "a powerful statement about man's ability to affect his own future."

That quote is no longer in the Washington Post story, nor on Lexis-Nexis. The reporter in question has no WaPo email address. Is it possible that this was humorous filler, never intended for publication? There's no correction, nothing. I know I saw this online. Any explanation, anyone?

UPDATE: I haven't been able to find any other reference to this quote. At this point, the only thing I can conclude is that it was either a reporter's error or an editing error. Too bad.
