Whoa ... The Hill reports,

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell (R) is likely to regret his interview on Friday with WTOP radio, in which he accidentally drops the F-bomb while discussing transportation policy.

"So no tax will be raised during your four-year term?," host Mark Plotkin asks the candidate.

"I'm going to find other ways to be able to fund transportation. I've outlined 12 f--king funding mechanisms that are creative, that are entrepreneurial," McDonnell answers.

Guess this sort of changes the subject from the Regent University thesis stuff ...

Update: A couple of folks on Twitter point out that he was probably trying to say "funding."  Also, it is understandable that candidates are under intense pressure, and always must be "on," yada, yada, yada.
