Open mouth, insert foot, chew

I was recently on a tour of Latin America, and the only regret I have was that I didn't study Latin harder in school so I could converse with those people. --- Dan Quayle

(source)

But, apparently, that's just a joke that was taken out of context. Here you can see allegedly actual Quayle quotes, such as:

I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix.

For NASA, space is still a priority.

The future will be better tomorrow.

It's very funny, but Dan Quayle has denied ever making such a statement, saying that his staff told him that the quotation started as a joke on the Tonight Show.

Maybe he was kidding?
