And this guy wants to be president?!
And on top of that - or, actually, in pursuit of that - he claims to have great foreign policy expertise?! I'm talking, of course, about John McCain's mega-gaffe in Amman yesterday. It's truly embarrassing to watch the video. McCain's entitled to some jet-lag-induced fuzzyheadedness, but to stand there and publicly insist (and re-insist) that Iran was bringing in al-Qaeda terrorists and training them, and then sending them back into Iraq, was a truly boneheaded mistake, and one that his opponents - as well as media critics - must not let him get away with. (for what it's worth MSNBC's Keith Olbermann even bestowed on McCain his awarded-daily "worst person in the world" honor.)
