    The Cornfield OOPs! File - 4th of July Edition


    Sometimes  we all say or do things we wish we could take back or do over. But  life, especially in these days of Twitter, smartphones, 24-hour news,  the blog-o-sphere and social media, captures almost any and all flubs,  slips of the tongue, mis-steps, hijinks and bad behavior. That is why I  have instituted the The Cornfield OOPs! File.

    The inaugural run was in around 3 in the morning today. That 1st file can be read here:

    The Cornfield OOPs! File - July 4th

    Today  we have 2 more to add to the file: 1 from controversial Tea Party  favorite Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh and 1 from New York City Mayor  Mike Bloomberg.

    Oh No You Didn't!:  If you didn't catch it replaying on your favorite news channel,  Bloomberg was making some remarks just before the famous Nathan's Hot  Dogs eating contest at Coney Island, a 4th of July tradition. As the  Mayor ran through the script using pun after pun, the Mayor turned and  quipped, "Who wrote this sh*t?"

    It  was priceless. Honest and funny all at the same time...and a real OOPs!  moment, but I am sure we will all let this 1 pass and enjoy a good  laugh.

    Diarrhea of the Mouth:  Congressman Joe Walsh is in a tight fight for re-election against Iraqi  war veteran Tammy Duckworth, who is proud of her time and service.  Walsh seems to have issue with Duckworth talking about her military  career. Duckworth was left a double-amputee following her tour of duty  in Iraq.

    However,  when confronted by Wolf Blitzer today on The Situation Room, Walsh backed down a bit and said that he does believe and appreciate that Duckworth  is a hero and her military service commendable. But that was after he  had this to say:

    "Now  I'm running against a woman who, my God, that's all she talks about.  Our true heroes, it's the last thing in the world they talk about."

    --  Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), speaking at a town hall meeting, criticizing  opponent Tammy Duckworth (D) for talking about the military service that  left her a double-amputee.


    Walsh is known for speaking when he should just shut-up.

    This is one of those times.

    From  the Cornfield, may the gaffes, the flubs, the misspeak and stupid  actions roll on...otherwise I will have nothing to write about.
