“Gentlemans”

Last portion of a sentence spoken by Senator Ted Cruz, (R) Texas:

“… is the only thing these gentlemans have laid out.”

The video capturing this error shows Cruz at a Congressional hearing and was aired on the MSNBC talkathon The Last Word on October 2, 2013. Granted, the senator’s use of gentlemans over of gentlemen could have been a slip of the tongue. But if reports that this Princeton graduate had his nose so high in the air at Harvard Law he refused to study with students from “lesser Ivies” such as Dartmouth and Brown are true, I (a lowly University of Texas-Austin graduate) will gladly point out any lapse by a junior senator who brings new meaning to the term “right-wing extremism.”  So there!
