I was watching a C-Span show, "Book TV", tonite and they were featuring a guy who'd just written, "Aristotle and an aardvark went to Washington." It's about malapropisms from politicians. The author featured this story:

 

In the '60's, a local politician at a public meeting gets asked a question about "solar power."

 

The dude has NO CLUE (it was the '60's, after all).

 

He pauses, and pauses, and pauses, and finally says,

 

"Well, it won't happen overnight."

 

Think about it.
