And this isn't exactly a flub but I found it amusing.  The other 
night, I was flipping back and forth between CNN and MSNBC watching 
the Wisconsin election results.  On CNN, Obama was giving a speach 
when suddenly I heard crosstalk.  My husband paused it and played it 
back and I understood it immediately-- it was two guys in the CNN 
newsroom chatting, not realising their mike was open:  "Did you hear 
about John King?"  "Yeah, he's becoming Jewish."  True-- their 
Washington correspondent John King is marrying fellow correspondent 
Dana Bash and King is converting, but hey, I certainly doubt he'd 
wanna be the topic of conversation during an Obama speech!  Rule 
number one-- any mike could be a live mike!
