Bush Says He Stands for Anti-Semitism . . . Oops!

From Reuters

With a slip of the tongue, George Bush today made it sound as though he favors anti-Semitism.

"I hope I stand for anti-bigotry, anti-Semitism and anti-racism. That's what drives me. That's one thing I feel strongly about," the vice president said at a campaign stop.

Bush's presidential campaign has suffered from controversy involving alleged anti-Semitism among some of its supporters, and the candidate clearly meant to say he was opposed to all bigotry, including anti-Semitism.

But he said the opposite and did not appear to notice his mistake.
