Politicians’ Gaffes

  • China is a big country, inhabited by many Chinese.  President Charles de Gaulle
  • This is a great day for France!  President Richard Nixon, while attending Charles De Gaulle’s funeral
  • Things are more like they are now than they have ever been.  President Gerald Ford
  • Capital punishment is our society’s recognition of the sanctity of human life. Orrin Hatch, Senator from Utah, explaining his support of the death penalty
  • My fellow astronauts…  Vice-President Dan Quayle, beginning a speech at an Apollo 11 anniversary celebration
  • Outside of the killings, Washington D.C. has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.  Mayor Marion Barry, Washington D.C.
  • We found the term ‘killing’ too broad.  State Department spokesperson on why the word ‘killing’ was replaced with ‘unlawful or arbitrary deprivation of life’ in its human rights reports for 1984-5
  • The exports include thumbscrews and cattle prods, just routine items for the police.  U.S. Commerce Department spokesman on a regulation allowing the export of various products abroad

    You notice these were all “official” US political statements? You see what we have to put up with over here? It’s truly amazing.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
