Okay, so why is it that when a Democratic politician says something like: "In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed," in reference to the terrible tornado that trashed Greensburg, KS, killing at least 12 and leaving the town in shreds, no-one says a thing? And yet, if that had popped out of the mouth of a Republican, I can guarantee you that he would have been raked over the coals for such a gaffe.
To be honest I could care less. Frankly, a slip of the tongue (which Obama claims it was) is a slip of the tongue. But what I take issue with is the double standards applied to Republicans and Democrats.
Democrats are forgiven for that kind of mistake (oh, he was just tired) and Republicans are not (oh he's just stupid).
Liberal hypocrisy at its finest, folks.
