Did Santorum Really Say a Forbidden Word?

Mike Opelka has live video of Rick Santorum sputtering and stuttering. He certainly said something that wasn't what he meant. Was it the forbidden N-word? Was it "nuclear," which fits the context? (The garbled word comes after "anti" in a list.) Was it just a tangled tongue? Listen and vote here:

Remember, as vice-president, George H.W. Bush once blurted out a remark about his and President Reagan having "had sex...uh, setbacks." Whole (short) books of the malapropisms of Dan Quayle, the mangled sentences of George W. Bush, and the "Hillarious" remarks ascribed to Hillary Rodham Clinton have been published. And if we really paid attention to everything a politician says, is there, or has there ever been, one who hasn't blurted out something that sounded incredibly stupid?
