And there are plenty of sites with Gore-isms. Anyone who speaks a lot in public is bound to make mistakes.

Hee hee...
But here's what our (Dutch) prime minister did a few years back: he was asked to perform a little "opening ceremony" for some web service (I forget what it was). This was a festive occasion, it was on tv and everything. He was supposed to open this site, obviously by clicking on something. So what does he do? He picks up the mouse like it's a remote control and points it at the screen.

good post, Bodie. i was trying to find that, but you beat me to it. Bush is not an idiot as some might have you believe... he is not good at public speaking. hell, if i had to get on television and talk to the free-world every week, i would certainly make a lot more mistakes than he has.

the mayor of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a dope. we were one of the leading bids for the olympics, and on a trip to Kenya for olympic stuff, he made a comment that he didn't want to go because:
a) his wife is afraid of snakes. (ok fine, yeah there's snakes there, not too bad eh?)
b)he was afraid that the locals would boil him in a big stew pot!! (what the heck???)
lol, needless to say, we lost the bid to China
