Best Slip of the Tongue by a Colorado Politician Denver 2005 - Pete Coors

Back when he was running for U.S. Senate rather than running a brewing company, Pete Coors debated Ken Salazar on Meet the Press. When it came to weapons of mass destruction, the Republican hopeful pronounced, Iraq was less of a concern than "Iran and North Dakota" -- a declaration that came as disturbing news to the folks in Fargo. Yeah, Coors corrected that to "North Korea" a few seconds later, without prompting, but his remark still stands as the most entertaining faux pas of the entire election season.
