Sigh. So only 3 of the 10 worst gaffes came from Republicans and 2 of the 10 worst gaffes came from eventual presidents.

Oh, and Al Gore invented the internet.

Look if you're feeling this lazy just call in sick. Don't subject us to levels of bs this toxic.

YodaBlues: The really farked up part of the Dukakis thing was that he actually served in the Army in Korea, which I think was the intent of the photo op: play up his military service. Of course, no one bothered to tell his staff he looked like a 4 year old, but still, he shouldn't of gotten as much flack as he did.

Actually, after Kerry's ordeal, people with military experience are seen as a liability in politics. Too much has been recorded, too maybe people for the opposition to go interview. I seriously can't wait for the elections 20 years from now, when everyone running will have teenage facebooks to worry about.

Palin was more of a canard, on a grand scale.

"And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

It's a great quote. Like it or not, it probably earned him more votes than it lost him. It speaks directly to the liberal generation X, and only "lost" him support from those who wouldn't vote for him anyway. Thanks to the media, especially Fox News, for giving him that news cycle.

Not to mention prescient of the tired wedge issues that would be leveled against him.

that is, without a doubt, the WORST formatted website I have ever attempted to view on my phone... and I like sites

Between the full screen ads and the yahoo c2005 shotgun layout, i could not see the actual content past #10... and when i tried to go to #9 i got another page of ads. Lame.
