I don't mean to sound like a broken record here, but, REALLY? This guy is considered smart? He got into Harvard? Holy affirmative action, Batman.
Here he is at Thursday's National Prayer Breakfast, reading (again) from his teleprompter. He comes across the word "corpsman," which is pronounced core-man (as anyone who ever watched a war movie knows). Instead, boy genius pronounces it "corpse-man." And just to prove that (in his mind) it wasn't a mistake, he does it again a few seconds later.
If it's final Jeopardy and the players are this guy and Dan Quayle, my money's on Quayle every time.
Imagine that: The commander-in-chief of the mightiest army in the world doesn't know what a corpsman is, or even how to pronounce it, even though there are corpsmen stationed in the White House itself. Yeah, that helps me sleep better.
