Senator Brownback from Kansas, presidential primary candidate and aspirant to Ronald Reagan’s shoes, fumbled a football analogy today while speaking in Wisconsin. Maybe he just got mixed up and thought he was in Indianapolis? Who knows. One thing you don’t do when running for office is call any quarterback “the greatest” since you are bound to offend someone. Instead you say “One of the greatest quarterbacks, Brett Favre…” or “the great quarterback, Peyton Manning…” … but you still don’t talk Peyton in front of the Cheeseheads, that’s a major gaffe when trying to come off as a populist to Green Bay fans.
Thanks and a hat tip to Dogreader, full story at CNN. Previous Brownback articles.
