Unless I misheard, Obama made two verbal slips in the debate. The last
one was when he said "country" when he meant "world." I don't recall
the first one but I believe it was something similar--everyone knew
what he meant.
Bob says it about as I see it. These guys have been making so many
talks and memorizing so much stuff that sometimes their mouth muscle
memory goes on autopilot. I remember when I was flying around doing TV
shows, radio shows and book signings, I sometimes forgot what city I
was in. Multiply my twenty or so cities by a few hundred for these guys.
I do wonder why someone has not cured McCain of "My friends, . . ."
preceding every other sentence. Makes him sound more senile than I
think he is.
