What It Is To Misspeak In America

Megyn Kelly, the new star on Broadway on Fox has come under fire just now for making comments about the ethnicity of Santa Claus. I believe that the media and various and sundry advocacy groups should leave Ms. Kelly alone but not for the reasons that you may think. Firstly, Megyn Kelly must be under a tremendous amount of pressure. She has been promoted on Fox to a Cadillac time slot and a few days ago appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Maybe she misspoke. It is obvious at least to me that it was not a good subject to bring up in these troubling times. Perhaps her producers did not foresee the backlash or thinking out loud it could have been an extemporaneous hole digging. Whatever the case she seems like a good person and did not mean any harm. After all, look at all the misspeaks and sex scandals we allow our politicians to get away with and they still go back to their desks shortly. What Megyn said should have been exited from any media script but served as chump change compared to what else we have experienced lately.
