It's not the repetition that annoys him, it's the misinterpretation.  The
same thing happened with Gore.  They're speaking figuratively, and Pete
sounded like he was joking, too.  So people take what they're
saying literally and attack them because it's not 100 percent accurate.  Do
you think Roger and Pete sabotaged Dame Bassey's helicopter, too?  Where was
The Times on that?
