If it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press and politicians saying something they’ll regret later is starting to become a trend. First, Vice President Joe Biden forces President Obama out of the closet on same-sex marriage support, then a few weeks later campaign surrogate Newark Mayor Cory Booker blasts Team Obama’s plan to use Republican rival Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital against him. The gaffe may soon blow over, but if Booker is as smart as the political chattering class thought he was before Sunday’s misstep, this is a week he’ll never forget. Until then, it’s the only thing everybody’s talking about. – Joyce Jones
