53. "Misspoke" is a word that just does not work. No matter who says it, I always think
that it is not sincere when it is said. It sounds like a minor error, or slip of the tongue as one would make in a conversation and saying the wrong word. But using "misspoke" to defend something like the sniper fire incident or "Clinton having tea parties" is not sincere. I always think of republicans when I hear "misspoke", e.g. Huckabee (I am not calling Clinton a republican). Your sentence "Clinton made a mistake and said something distasteful....." is more accurate.
