Mental note... never diss Brent Favre when you are in Cheesehead country pandering for votes. Doh! Brownback's response at the podium to the gaffe could be the new symbol for the GOP come to think of it. Of course, there's also Tommy Thompson's "I had to go to the bathroom, my hearing aid was dead, I had the flu, and the dog ate my homework" excuse for saying that he though employers should be able to fire gay people for being, well -- gay. Ah well... as Obama has shown, foot-in-mouth disease knows no political boundaries. Too funny.
