Missing the point.
Dan Quayle went to an elementary school for a photo op. They were having a spelling bee.
The teacher handed Quayle a card. The card said "P-O-T-A-T-O-E".
Quayle asked a student to spell "potato" and then noted that the student's answer of "P-O-T-A-T-O" was incorrect.
And that's how the world came to understand that Dan Quayle was a freakin' idiot.
See? This is now the media operates. Obama? A Jew-hater? Naaaaaaaaawwwww. He just misspoke.
Quayle? An idiot? Why, of course!
No, I get the point. I just disagree. I think examining every phoneme the man utters is idiotic. Doing things like this when it’s so obvious what happened makes us look petty and small and only serves to provide ammunition to the left to use against us. There are bigger fish to fry.
I never heard that before. Thx.
You can even see in the video that he asks the teacher a question before doing so -- his initial instinct was that "potatoe" was not correct.
