Quote of the Week
"I worry about accusing politicians of making gaffes when they've uttered remarks that would be regarded as plain common sense if anyone else had said them.
We in the media risk forcing them to tame all their opinions until they are so bland as to be dishonest."
That quote comes from Mark Mardell on the BBC Website after the so-called "Romneyshambles."
And whether or not you think it applies in that instance the point is certainly valid in general.
