I stood in Ames, Iowa, in the fall of 1975 as a student at Iowa State University, among a crowd eagerly awaiting a visit from Gerald Ford who was stumping in Iowa.
He arrived with the usual fanfare, took to the podium, and began speaking — “I’m very glad to be here at Ohio State today….”..
Many boos and ohhhs and he instantly realized his error.
“Pardon, me…Iowa State. We Michiganders have the Buckeyes on our minds a lot during the football season.”
From the crowd’s reaction, it appeared that he was generally forgiven by most and continued on with his speech.
Kerry’s response, on the other hand, wasn’t so much an honest explanation to a misspoken word, but rather a shallow statement tantamount to saying, “Well, while I’m here, I’m all for you, but when I’m there, I’m all for them.”p>What a two-faced human being. br> — Jeffrey A. Ehler

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
