See, it is possible to post about something other than Leesburg today...
(with a tip-o-the-hat to OpenLeft.)
[update] Okay, this was supposed to have been a humorous post, but I couldn't help myself. John McCain mischaracterized Iran, al Qaeda, Sunni and Shi'a again today. That makes five times he has done that.
Today, as he was questioning Gen. David Petraeus, he again confused the difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
At least five times as a candidate John McCain has stated that Iran (a Shiite nation) is supporting Al-Qaeda (a Sunni group) in Iraq. This is not some minor mistake, but a significant gaffe. He clearly does not understand the sensitive political dynamics in that region of the world.
What's worse is that he's done it at important times when you'd expect him to be at his best -- he did it today in the Senate while questioning the commander of American forces in Iraq, and he did it on a recent trip to the Middle East.
If John McCain can't remember such a simple fact at crucial times, how will he be able to do it as President? - Howard Dean
