    I like Harry Reid's most recent gaffe about smelly tourists...but it doesn't make a top 10.

    John Kerry's "Global Test" comment was definitely a big one too.

    I liked Bush's "hardest part of my job is connecting Iraq to 9/11" comment.

    I liked a lot of things about Bush but he was really embarrassing when he said things like that.
