Oops! Dumb politician of the day


He does have a he-man handshake, though

A Republican congressional candidate says he’s learned to double check his campaign schedule after he mistakenly spoke at a Democratic convention in Iowa.

Dan Dolan told the Quad-City Times he arrived early Saturday at the county courthouse in Albia for a Republican convention. He says his staffer asked the crowd if he could speak, and when he finished, “a guy raises his hand and says, ‘I think you want to talk to the Republicans.'”

Turns out, Democrats were meeting in the same place two hours before the Republican event was to start.

Dolan, of Muscatine, Iowa, says everyone was nice about the mix-up, but he now asks “Is this the Republican convention?” before he starts talking.

Dolan is running for the GOP nomination for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District seat.

Har!

I really like the part where the Dems let him spend the time practicing his speech and waited till the question-period to point out his mistake. 🙂
