For the record: we all say goofy things. So I’m not going to mock Axelrod for this unfortunate statement:
“You know, you can see in the speech that [Obama’s] delivering that he, you know, that he, this is coming from his loins,” Axelrod said.
But the response is still funny:
The reporters gathered around Axelrod tittered, and he was visibly thrown off balance for a moment. He tried to recover quickly by joking about the comment.
“And uh — I just wanted to say loins. I wanted to see if I could get loins in the story,” he said.
Poor David. This has not been a good election for the man; reporters never dared laugh at him before. Such a shame…
