Gordon Brown on 'Obama Beach'

Gordon Brown's latest gaffe--"Obama Beach" instead of Omaha Beach--is causing a mini-uproar, and with Brown's ministership (?) on the brink due to parliament's expenses scandal, he certainly can't afford any more PR disasters.

But...seriously? Isn't this pretty harmless? It would be one thing if he referred to "Osama Beach" or something, but this seems like a pretty harmless foot-in-mouth incident. Obama was sitting directly behind Brown at the time, so it's understandable that the President's presence was percolating in Brown's sub-conscious.
