Oh, for Pete's sake

Senator Harry Reid, (D-emagoguer), is adding a little epilogue to the paperback release of his book "The Good Fight":

"Reid, D-Nev., writes: 'That speech was phenomenal, Barack,' I told him. And I will never forget his response. Without the barest hint of braggadocio or conceit, and with what I would describe as deep humility, he said quietly: 'I have a gift, Harry.'"

More like a "gift" for reading off his ever-present teleprompter, a skill that failed the Messiah today when the words on it weren't scrolling fast enough for him, and he subsequently got a little confused as to exactly whom he was supposed to be thanking at a speech.

Why is it the numerous (admittedly minor) gaffes committed by His Anointedness such as this one never quite seem to end up in the mainstream news, when by comparison every little public mishap by Bush (like the pretzel story or his trying to open the wrong door in China) seemed to dominate the headlines for days?.

is supposed to be a shining example of someone with no conceit or ego, Mr. Reid?
