Not a Gaffe: A Fundamental Misunderstanding of Iraq


Ilan Goldenberg: John McCain made a mistake Tuesday evening, which as far as I'm concerned, disqualifies him from being president. It is so appalling and factually wrong that I'm actually sitting here wondering who McCain's advisers are. It's a real misunderstanding of what has happened in Iraq over the past year. If we are going to have an Iraq-centric war on terror policy, he should at least understand what he is talking about. Click here to read more.

1. McCain's answer to Couric's question was just bull shit
The man has no grasp on what's happening there. Where do people get this shit that he's better on National Defense? - from singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb...?"
What a light weight!!!

2. They honestly think that we are not paying attention and their propaganda
will continue to dazzle the masses. We've grown but they haven't. All they can do is keep going to the same whole well, hoping the 'water' will numb us/dumb us one more time. They are losing and it's really starting to show.

3. Last time I saw somebody with that facial expression
It was on the TV show "Dead like me" when the protagonist spotted the re-entering Soyuz toilet seat that was about to blow her to bits. It's well beyond "deer in headlights".

5. Problem is *ush, with the media's help, has set the intelligence
bar so low. If this blows up on McCain then what does that say about all the times the media didn't make an issue out of the unbelievably, idiotic things *ush said?
