It certainly does happen in real life.

Ask George W. Bush, who made almost exactly the same blunder on the campaign trail in 2000.

Or Ronald Reagan

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.

Of course, the British classic for this type of comment was John Major who referred to a large section of his cabinet as 'bastards' live on TV. [lol]

In Brazil, at 1994 elections, then Minister Rubens Ricupero told a TV anchor that, considering presidential candidate Fernando Henrique Cardoso's campaign "we (the government) show what is good, and hide what is bad. We have no scruples". Neither him nor the anchor were aware that they were on line...

If you think what Bono said was bad, you should have heard The Edge's comment. [Smile]

There is a school of thought that sometimes those "inadvertent" comments are actually quite deliberate. I've read that Reagan's joke scared the hell out of the Russians, and W. pointedly refused to apologize to Adam Clymer for calling him a "major league casserole" (or whatever word it was that he used.) [Smile]

This plotline was used in an episode of "The West Wing" a couple seasons back, and the punchline at the end was that Bartlet's "gaffe" (he made a joke about his opponent's intelligence) was a ploy to get the press talking about the issue.\
