Historic Glitches

Now that we’ve been told by the DNCMedia, never once deviating from their OFA flash cards, that OgabeCare is suffering from a few “glitches”, here is another famous historical glitch:

In spite of a few initial glitches, transatlantic flight will become faster, more available and cheaper soon! The Hindenburg: It's More Than Just a Blimp!

Ladies and Gentleman, I can report with complete confidence that our operations on the Western Plains are in fine order. It is correct that General Custer has encountered a minor glitch at the Little Big Horn but we’re confident he will have everything worked out shortly.

Hmmm….Seems that there was a little ‘glitch’ loading some fertilizer down there in TX a ways back 1947 To be precise.
