The Plain English Campaign's "Foot in Mouth" award threw up some classics this year. Personally, I prefer Arnold Schwarzenegger's quote to the eventual winner. "The idea that "gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman" appealed tremendously. I also liked Chris Patten's comment that the Conservative Party "was living to regret having committed political suicide." Shades of the undead there I think. Nevertheless Rumsfield's quote about there being "unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know" beautifully summed up the Bush Administration's Iraq policy.
