10,000 Died!! By Steve Verdon

Well actually it was 12, but don’t tell Barack Obama that!

“In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died–an entire town destroyed,” the Democratic presidential candidate said in a speech to 500 people packed into a sweltering Richmond art studio for a fundraiser.

Yeah, guess I missed it.

As the Illinois senator concluded his remarks a few minutes later, he appeared to realize his gaffe.

“There are going to be times when I get tired,” he said. “There are going to be times when I get weary. There are going to be times when I make mistakes.”

Okay, but please, don’t make a mistake with that red button that launches the nukes. That isn’t the emergency call button the White House Pastry Department.
