Rather hard to do when nothing but stupid is running, but lets give it a try.

To be fair, if I were to keep a camera on you every day, all day, do you think maybe I might catch you saying something stupid now and then? Sure I would. Every one of us blurts out the occasional gaff. But we don't have hundreds of media organizations and the internet sharing those gaffs over and over.

We can also be a bit more fair if we admit that, when the pressure is really on, people say even more dumb things. Yet, we are trying to elect folks that can handle the pressure, so they need to be better when the chips are down than we are.
