Looks like Gordon Brown is dead and buried in this UK general election following a simple microphone gaffe in Rochdale. He called an old lady a bigot.
I ask it every time a politician gets caught saying something he shouldn't on a microphone. Before getting in the car - why not look down and automatically check your freaking shirt?
You'd think it would be the first thing they teach you in your campaign training. After TV interview, press conference, photo op - Check the mic, check the mic, check the mic!
