Yesterday, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley gave his State of the State speech. Things were going well... until the governor paid accidental tribute to Anchorman and read the subhead "conclusion" from the teleprompter.
O'Malley handles the fuck-up well enough, cracking a small, embarassed smile before moving on. His office didn't handle it quite as well, though; in fact, they tried to act like the whole thing was intentional.
"The governor is a huge Anchorman fan, but this was not a Ron Burgundy moment. It's just sometimes how he signals he's ending a speech," one of his aides told the National Journal.
