You bet it was ...

A Freudian slip from Liberal blogger Scott Ross, who was commenting on Michael Ignatieff's advice to Liberal supporters ""If you're not going to say anything to help us win, shut up!" and offered this unintentionally amusing statement:
Following Ignatieff's statement the awkwardness was palatable ...
Palatable - can't argue with that.

You're sure this was the Iggomaniac? According to the left wing nutters only Harper muzzles his members.

I"m pretty dumb obviously, could you explain the freudian slip?

I'm pretty sure you meant to say "the awkwardness was palpable" meaning "so intense as to be almost able to be felt physically" rather than "palatable" which means " agreeable or acceptable to the mind". I'm just suggesting that your awkwardness was agreeable to those of us on the right side of the aisle who aren't big fans of Mr. Ignatieff.

You are correct. I did make that mistake. I will correct it. Thank you.
