Yes, accidents happen. But we'd be hearing for ever how insensitive a Republican president would be if he blew the name of a community devastated by a tornado. But gaffes such as these are never a big deal when they spring from the mouths of liberals.The mainstream media world view is that liberals are brilliant and conservatives are morons. No evidence to the contrary will ever sway them. 57 states? He was tired. "Corpse-man?" Who cares? "Monroe?" big deal.
Were this W, I guarantee, this would be a very, very big deal.
