I’m popping through Sirius talk stations and catch Bill Bennett saying that the focus on foreign policy has had the effect of showing how callow and inexperienced Barack Obama is. Bill Bennett is a tool.
As Crooks and Liars pointed out earlier this week, while Obama – a while back – got pummeled for slipping and referencing the “president of Canada,” McCain’s multiple references to policy concerning Czechoslovakia, a country that has not existed for 15 years, have largely gone unnoticed.
This mindset is part of the pass McCain is enjoying in the media: despite repeated and multiple mistakes and contradictions and flip-flops, everyone’s just sitting back with a shit grin on their face saying “s’all good.”
To be clear: John McCain does not qualify for POTUS because he is a veteran, is not experienced at foreign policy because he got off his ass in DC once in a while and visited foreign countries, and does not garner my respect simply because he is my elder; he’s pretty much everyone’s elder, and respect must be earned.
