Gaffe Cult

The BBC has decided, in honor of the ongoing crisis caused by the unfortunate remarks of the Hungarian PM ("We screwed up. Not a little, a lot," Gyurcsany was heard saying. "No European country has done something as boneheaded as we have.") to post an article on other famous political gaffes. I think this takes the cake.

In Britain the Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth's husband, is notorious for making jokes that might offend the recipient and make bystanders cringe - many of them based on old-fashioned racial stereotypes.
His comments have included: "It looks as if it was put in by an Indian," when being shown an old-fashioned fuse box; "Still throwing spears?" to an Australian Aborigine; and, to a Scottish driving instructor, "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?"

today's YouTube clip is two songs from Cloud Cult, an awesome band that the pundit saw in Madison on 9-15, check them out at their website.
