Mitch McConnell gaffes again

Make that two verbal gaffes for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) this week.

After almost accidentally casting the Kentucky delegation's votes Tuesday night for "Mitch" Romney, he referred to "Mitt Ryan" at the start of his speech Wednesday night.

This, after making a notable appearance in the video tribute to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). At the end of the video, McConnell said: "Whether people want to admit it or not, Ron Paul changed the conversation."
