Oh, my! What a hilarious comedy of errors Santorum aide Alice Stewart treated us to this afternoon. I might be mistaken here, but wasn't something very similar to this a plot line on one of the latter-day Three's Company episodes?
A spokeswoman for former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum said Monday that she "misspoke" when she said the candidate had been describing President Obama's "radical Islamic policies."
[O]n Monday, Santorum aide Alice Stewart told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, while elaborating on what the candidate sees as a dangerous environmental agenda, Stewart said Santorum was speaking of the "radical Islamic policies the president has."
"I was talking about radical environmental policies and I misspoke," Stewart told The Fix. "I regret it."
Totally understandable and relatable mistake! Could have happened to anybody. In fact, it happened to mejust the other day.
My wife and I were having dinner with some friends we hadn't seen in a while, and I meant to comment on how creamy the mashed potatoes were, but I accidentally accused my friend of trying to impose Sharia Law upon the whole of humanity. Oops!
