Joe Biden Gaffe

If you perform a Google search for the word “gaffe,” the only related search that appears is “biden gaffe,” a testament to how this word has risen in prominence in this hotly-contested election. Obama’s running mate is said to be the biggest culprit of the so-called gaffe, also largely considered to be his biggest downside. Clicking on that “biden gaffe” leads to headlines like “Biden living up to his gaffe-prone reputation,” “Biden: The Gift of Gaffe,” and “Joe Biden’s just a barrel of gaffes.” But when did a gaffe, which the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary describes as being “a social or diplomatic blunder,” start being the premiere word of this election (although one can make a case for “earmarks”)?
