I like much about John McCain, but the guy has GOT to get his Sunnis n’ Shiites n’ Kurds straight. Flash cards. Practice. Practice. Otherwise, he’s gonna get murdered, as we see in this mailer I just got from Dem Central. And, in whacking McCain for his gaffes, they not-so-subtly raise the Age Question once again.
John McCain is so wrong on Iraq, he can’t even get the basic facts about the situation on the ground correct.
Today, as he was questioning Gen. David Petraeus, he again confused the difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
At least five times as a candidate John McCain has stated that Iran (a Shiite nation) is supporting Al-Qaeda (a Sunni group) in Iraq. This is not some minor mistake, but a significant gaffe. He clearly does not understand the sensitive political dynamics in that region of the world.
What’s worse is that he’s done it at important times when you’d expect him to be at his best — he did it today in the Senate while questioning the commander of American forces in Iraq, and he did it on a recent trip to the Middle East.
If John McCain can’t remember such a simple fact at crucial times, how will he be able to do it as President?
We have to stop John McCain from taking control of the White House, and stop him from taking over George Bush’s war in Iraq. Can you write a letter to the editor of your local paper letting voters in your area know just how confused John McCain is?
