Someone else noticed this little jewel as well? I'm a total conservative... but even I smacked my head when I heard him say it. Where else could he be? Well... possibly international waters in a boat???
*sigh* one to add to the list of stupidest things ever said...
Head in the clouds... yet feet planted firmly on the ground.

Scotty, I heard that too. Rumsfeld even had a big sarcastic grin on his face when he said it and some still were clueless enough to not get it. (no offense to anyone in here that also thought he was serious)

Donald Rumsfeld is not only the best man for the job, you gotta admit he is pretty funny. Don't need to watch Comedy Network-- just flip to C-SPAN when the SecDef is giving a press conference at the Pentagon.

I don't like his politics, but Rumsfeld is known for having a dry sense of humour, whether deploying it against a bunch of press muppets is a good idea is another question.
Cannot see the Washington press corps being receptive to irony somehow.
