Definitely not going to help him in Pennsylvania, but after years of Bushisms, I doubt that mangling a single word a single time is going to hurt him either.  Now if he had repeatedly referred to the "Nittaly" Lions, there might be a problem, but that's not the case.

(I'm actually not one, but it probably is a few thousand votes to McCain)

Do people really make that much of ado about little things?

Dave

Yes.  Not because if the gaffe itself, but because it creates the impression that the candidate was pandering for votes by making a reference to something he didn't really know or care about.  However, a one-off verbal miscue that can be attributed to a slip of the tongue ain't going to make that much of an ado,  It would need to be a more extensive or blatant gaffe to create that impression.
