Quote of the Day: Gordon Brown

From British prime minister Gordon Brown, forgetting to turn off his mike after chatting with constituent Gillian Duffy:

She was just a sort of bigoted woman. She said she used be Labour. I mean it's just ridiculous.

Poor Gordon. I mean, at some point you almost have to feel sorry for a guy so badly suited to politics. Nick Clegg must practically be cackling. You can watch the whole debacle on the right. The insults come at around the 4:30 mark.
