Thanks to George W. Bush, McCain has had 5 years exactly, to bone up on Al-Qaeda in Iraq, not Iran, their sworn enemies (thanks, Joe). Foreign policy, specifically making sense of the war on terror, was supposed to be McCain's strong suit. "Let me give you some straight talk, friends" admits he knows little about economic policy. McCain's buffoonery, doesn't exactly inspire the Middle East and the world, that he would be a safe pair of hands as President.
This time, thankfully McCain had Joe Lieberman by his side, to straighten him out. Fortunately, it wasn't a 3:00 a.m. moment. And then there is the possibility that McCain could get sharper when he is 80 years old, and in his second term at the White House? Hey, that's something to look forward to. "I'm sorry".
