"politically lunkheaded"

I'm going to remember this one:

"politically lunkheaded"

as in....

"Details of Obama's speech got buried in the wake of General Wesley Clark's politically lunkheaded comment about John McCain that, "I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president." But over the Fourth of July weekend, it might be appropriate and enlightening to take a few minutes to read or watch the whole thing."

Amazing what convoluted thinking passes for reality in the political world, and what truths are not able to be said. At least now I have a phrase to distinguish between things that are true but shouldn't be said, and those that are true but need to be said.


I'm going to go listen to Barack's speech.
