CBS scrubs a second McCain flub from interview broadcast / David Edwards and Nick Juliano
25-Jul-2008 (one comment)

Keeping up with John McCain's foreign policy gaffes is becoming a cottage industry these days, and a progressive radio host has caught another slip-up from the Republican presidential nominee talking about the war on terror. And keeping those flubs away from viewers is occupying plenty of network news editors' time. Young Turks host Cenk Uygur noticed that his confusion about the timeline of the "surge" in Iraq wasn't McCain's only gaffe in his interview with CBS news this week. McCain seemed to forget the war in Afghanistan preceded the invasion of Iraq; either that or he didn't think it was a major conflict.

I recall George w. did not even know the names of the presidents of the hot spots in the world like Pakistan and Taiwan,so I think Mccain make a perfect president,since he does not even know that Pakistan and Iraq are not neighbors.
