    I would think the US has bigger things to worry about than what VP Harris says about North Korea, or Biden forgetting that some backbench rep no one would've otherwise heard of died last month, but I guess that's just me. And any complaints about gaffes coming from a Republican operative can be dismissed like a common housefly after 4 years of POTUS Tub O' Lard drooling his way through speeches and offending allies left and right.
    Here's the way to evaluate a gaffe:
    - Does the speaker immediately correct themself (or have it corrected by a staffer afterwards since they might not have noticed one misspoken word during a long speech), or do they double down that they totally meant to say it that way and their followers believe it's some sort of secret code?
    - Is the rest of the speech a coherent argument of a particular set of points, or is it top-of-mind rambling with run-on sentences that go nowhere?

    If the answer to both questions is the former, then, well, people slip up occasionally, in a perfect world that wouldn't happen, but such is life, so move on. If the answer to both questions is the latter, then that's the kind of crap you mock.

      They are insincere and unserious and have no seat at the adult table.

                    • Unsure just which thread this neatly fits in:

                      A Johns Hopkins doctor and her spouse — a doctor & major in the US Army — were federally indicted for attempting to provide medical information about members of the military to the Russian government.

                      https://www.thebaltimorebanner.com/c...IH7M6D4GKMHZ4/

                      Anna Gabrielian and Jamie Lee Henry, who had a secret security clearance as a doctor at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, communicated and met with an undercover FBI agent who they believed was from the Russian embassy, offering sensitive medical information on military members and their family, the indictment alleges.
                      “My point of view is until the United States actually declares war against Russia, I’m able to help as much as I want,” Henry told the undercover agent, according to the indictment. “At that point, I’ll have some ethical issues I’ll have to work through.”
                      “Gabrielian highlighted to the [undercover agent] a medical issue reflected in the records of [the military member’s spouse] that Russia could exploit.,” the indictment says.

                      During the same meeting, Henry also provided medical information related to five patients at Fort Bragg, including a retired Army officer, a current Department of Defense employee, and spouses of active and deceased Army veterans.

                      Were they able to "declassify" this information with their minds as well, or is that only a presidential feature?
