I've never seen this, and it's wholly unprofessional, but it's funny.

Well, the Hermanator was the single funniest thing in the entire campaign (and recent political history), but in my book the best moment has to  be 'Oops'.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

In a normal campaign, this would be. But we had 'oops'.

If you've ever listed to the Political Junkie segment on NPR Wednesday afternoons, you know from the intro montage that "Oops." is the defining phrase of the 2012 primary season and probably the whole election.  Indeed, if it hadn't been for his Oops moments, Perry probably would be the GOP nominee right now.

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

Iowa Caucus 2012:

Rick Santorum   29,839   24.54%
Mitt Romney      29,805   24.51%
Ron Paul      26,036   21.41%
Newt Gingrich   16,163   13.29%
Rick Perry             12,557   10.33%
Michele Bachmann   6,046   4.97%
Jon Huntsman, Jr.          739    0.61%
Other (+)                   405           0.33%

All things considered, Michele Bachmann's campaign was full of hilarity. I'll never forget the first time I laid eyes on this:



Or the Piers Morgan interview where she refused to defend her anti-gay politics. "I'm not judgemental!" - Classic.

I still think nothing can top Rick Perry's oops.

Romney had a few good moments too, mostly in that SC debate when he was like a deer in the headlights.

There were many priceless gaffes this primary.
I think "Oops" is what we'll remember a few years from now.
