Face it:  what politicians’  handlers call a “gaffe” is simply the candidate getting caught saying something with content, rather than the 100% ambiguous statements prepared for them.  By their measure, everything in my blog is a gaffe.    I suppose this will lead to disaster, rather like the old joke where you work.  You know, the one where you slave away to earn a few “attaboys,” but a single “awshit” wipes the slate clean.    So be it.  I’m going to continue to state exactly what my position is, and do my best to convince you with stuff that’s unheard-of in presidential campaigns: reality and facts, and , more important,  statistics that are appropriate to the situation, rather than contrived malarkey.
