Fact: If I was ever in a position to wear a “mic” on a regular basis and make speaches I would DEFINITELY be caught saying something I should not on mic.
Heck, I worry when I am talking to a reporter and trying to stick strictly to my notes. So, I have a little sympathy for people like Jesse Jackson and Dick Cheney when they are caught saying something they shouldn’t. I think as long as it is not a lie and not meant to slander someone, then we shouldn’t hold it against them. At least I won’t because I know it could easily be me!
