McCain Is Confused by The Modern World. Again.

HuffPo: McCain Defends Czechoslovakia, A Non-Existent Country -- Again

At a press availability today [actually, yesterday], John McCain expressed concern about relations between Russia and a country that hasn't existed for quite some time. According to a rough pool report transcript, he said:

"I was concerned about a couple of steps that the Russian government took in the last several days. One was reducing the energy supplies to Czechoslovakia. Apparently that is in reaction to the Czech's agreement with us concerning missile defense, and again some of the Russian now announcement they are now retargeting new targets, something they abandoned at the end of the Cold War, is also a concern."

Czechoslovakia, of course, split into two separate countries in 1993.

Two countries now. The Czech Republic and Slovakia.

I've already gotten used to calling Tampa Bay the Rays instead of the Devil Rays. Took me about 3 months. In 15 years McLame hasn't sorted out the two countries that once made up Czechoslovakia.

But he crashed some planes and was a prisoner, so he's qualified to be President, according to your in-the-tank corporate media. BBQ and sprinkles, anyone?
