It was during my campaign for Nevada State Assembly last year (2010.) I went onto a radio show to be interviewed about my campaign, knowing that the host had endorsed one of my opponents (I had two), and I thought I was prepared. But I was thrown off when the host compared me to Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin, because I had taken a Russian language course at a university in the Soviet Union. I stumbled and just went totally robotic. The very next thing he asked me about was Asatru, as I am an "out" heathen and the author of a book on the subject. And I was still in so much shock I completely missed an opportunity to promote my book. I didn't even think of it until the next day.
