"What nonsense I have just come out with," Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar admitted after delivering a 25-minute speech -- unaware that his microphone was still turned on. Oops.

Teehee...but I prefered Dubya's "major lague asshole" gaffe.

I am eagerly awaiting the day (maybe during the upcoming general elections here?) when an Irish politician lets slip with something silly.

Heh. Sounds like those Southwest Airlines commercials where someone does something embarrasing, and the narrator says, "Wanna get away?"

Hehe. That's cool, but he has a long way to go to beat John Prescott, Britain's Deputy Prime Minister, who started punching the electorate in the head during the last election here. It was manifesto launch day I think too.

Funny that this is just a few days before this is used as the plot device in The West Wing.

I believe his comment was made press safe - what he actually said was "What a fucking boring speech"

What he said was "Vaya coƱazo que he soltado" - so "What fucking nonsense I've come out with", more or less.
