The gift that keeps giving

I swear that they shouldn't let this guy out in public without handlers and a script. He's a walking gaffe-fest. First it was "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb Iran." Then it was "100 years" in Iraq. Then he says "It's not important" when we bring our troops home from Iraq. All of these were foolish, careless things for a candidate on the stump to say. But now he's gone too far, he's made the unforgivable gaffe, he's crossed the line of no return:

He's going to veto beer.

No, really! I didn't even know that was in the executive's authority, but apparently that's his plan:



Seriously, I don't think these "gaffes" are terribly important. Sometimes a gaffe is, as they say, the unintentional speaking of a political truth. The "100 years" comment would qualify there. Sometimes a gaffe is just something which sounds bad, especially out of context; the "not important" line would qualify there. But he is careless with his words, isn't he? I can't wait to see what he says next. Seriously, I think I'm really going to enjoy this campaign.

  1. Too funny! Move to Canada, our beer is better and not subject to potential veto!

  2. I wonder if you thought Obama's speech in which he claimed that asthmatics should never have to go to the ER and that they used breathalyzers was just as hilarious.

    Probably not.
