    Damn, I wish he'd do this more often! This is a gaffe worth making.

    who says that is "forgot" to turn on his mike. I would not be surprised if he left it on on purpose just so he could be heard is candidate though with the cover of not meaning to say it publicly.
    I have to say he should of said that in his speech that is the kind of stuff I wish our politains would really say. Speak to the people like people. Not these buzz word crap that we get currently.

    This gives me hope that Obama will turn into Jed Bartlet...

    He gets an F for his use of the bully pulpit to date. The open mike gets a B+.

    Even Dubba did this when he let loose not knowing the mic was on. I wish they would all get away from their speeches and correctness and just speak their minds for all to hear.

    It took a long time for me to realize that emoticon represented a heart and not a pair of testicles.

    Even now that I know better, I still see the dangly bits.

    You see what you wish to see, "not that there is anything wrong with that"!

    Sex is not love, nor the other way around. Never has been. ;)

    Although, they tend to be highly correlated.

    Although this is unclaimed, I seem to recall someone saying that it was attributed to Ann Landers.

    Ann Landers often gives trite oversimplifications for human nature.

    I think the part about Ryan's past of supporting unpaid for legislation is something he should put into all his speeches. In fact, I don't know why he doesn't talk like this more. One of the reasons Republicans have such a dedicated voting base is that they're not afraid to speak to them candidly.

    No, it was that blustering nincompoop and dilettante stephen fry who said that, and then had a hissy fit when the media talked about it.

    Maybe.

    I don't really have a problem with what he said. It was political, but firm, understandable and hardly any kind of scandal.

    Even when the President is very mad, it is rare that he ever curses like Mr Biden.

    I'm sorry but I do not think this is a gaffe. He knew his mic was on and knew what to say. I am glad he finally speaks his mind but it was no mistake.

    That seems ever so unlikely. Why would Stephen Fry be expounding on relationships between men and women? It makes no sense.
