The Clueless Candidate

Whoops, he did it again.

Fresh off his declaration that there are 57 States in the Union, that nice young Senator from Cook County asserts that we need more Arabic translators in Afghanistan, but laments that they are all tied up in Iraq. [here]

Arabic translators would be useless in Afghanistan where the population speaks Pashto and Persian, but since Iraqis are Arabs, the translators are located where they can do some good.

The gaffes just keep piling up and as they do at least some of the fine young Senator's fans must start to realize that their candidate is entirely clueless about the nation and the world.

No word yet on his plans for invading Pakistan.
