There were a few other weird blunders like that I can't quite recall, but generally I'm just amazed by some of the poor dialogue and lack of basic elocution. I don't want to start anything by naming names as the political points are another thing entirely, but some of these dudes just sound like complete idiots.
"Substantive" is one word in particular however, that reminds me of so many bullshit arguments like this in law school.
