Knowing Our Nation

So, I have low blood pressure, so occasionally I tune into The Daily Show to raise it.

But something's been really bugging me. I was never too much of a fan of Sarah Palin, but I would've loved her as V.P. as long as McCain was president. But come on, messing up the story of Paul Revere? Why not just hand your gun over to the Liberals?! I mean, they would drop it like it was a Bible, but still.

And like most people I didn't know much about Herman Cain before he started running, but he did a horrible gaff. He was talking about how Liberals need to re-read the Constitution, then he quoted the Declaration! Again, just give the Liberals all the ammo they need. Here's a link to a youtube video with a Liberal bitching about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrGyymtped8

Gaffs like that about American History and the Constitution should be illegal. Every American should get a copy of the Constitution when they graduate high school. Here's your diploma, and you're gonna need this too.

What are your thoughts on this? Obviously there's a lot of gaffs on the other side, but it makes me face-palm when our own people mess up on things I've known since middle school.

Illegal to make gaffs? Oh crappyda! What next? Parting your hair on the wrong side?
  

Our Bill of Rights constitutes a cluster of little foxholes of liberty ground into the hard cold face of history by helpless men for a shield against the lash of tyrants. They are the result of distrust of power and distrust of men in power. They are a recognition of Lord Acton's statement of a truth eternal--"power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."R.

I meant that metaphorically. Obviously we shouldn't throw people in jail, but it really should be watched out for. What do you think about all the gaffs though?

Mountains and Molehills. I've been known to make a few in my life, no one threw me in jail.

The human psyche, being what it is, is going to make gaffs, and make unkind, stupid, bigoted, and racist remarks.

Why, I have even said a few 'aw shucks' in my life.

Admittedly I'm not a Big Wig, don't really think I'm a Little Wig, but life goes on.

Well, it all depends on how you look at it.  Undecided

Of course we will hear far more when a conservative makes a gaff.  The MSM will trumpet the fact over and over.  Did the same thing happen when our current CinC noted during his campaign that he had visited all 57 states? 

The point is, during the hectic campaign schedule, folks are going to make errors.  If we only pay attention to the gaffs made instead of the message they are trying to convey, we end up with an automaton who only spews the same message time after time.  Contrary to popular opinion, our elected officials and those running for office are human and subject to brain cramps as all of us are.
