Who cares? Wires and blogs and commentators are atwitter at what the AP called President Bush’s, “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day at the Sydney Opera House.
The problem? Verbal gaffes – saying OPEC instead of APEC and Austria instead of Australia. Oh, and going out the wrong door.
Yeah, that all stinks. But who cares. Can we please, please, please stop focusing on the trivial and start focusing on what matters? These gaffes are so trivial and say nothing about anything. Let’s all count how many times today we say, “Oops, I meant to say….” I’m already up to three and I haven’t talked to anyone yet.
Substance por favor.
