John McCain: Clueless

Does he ever stop?  Now, look.  I understand that most presidential candidates put together teams of big thinkers who essentially tutor the hopeful so that he or she can be at least moderately well versed in any particular area of expertise.

For John, he may have fooled himself into believing that he’s so knowledgeable about foreign policy in general, and Iraq specifically, that he either doesn’t listen to his advisers, or he simply just doesn’t have any.

A bit of advice to McCain’s advisers.  Duct tape him in a chair, and put some damn knowledge in his head; this is embarrassing.

It’s as though he is desperate to prove he knows nothing about the country we’ve been occupying for the better part of this decade now, and just when you would think that someone on Team McCain would get him to clam up for two seconds, he goes off and contradicts himself regarding Muqtada al Sadr.

First, Sadr’s really not that big of a deal, his influence is on the downturn, now he’s as powerful as ever.  As Think Progress further points out, back in 2007, McCain had said that Sadr was not directing his forces against American forces at about the time when… um… (sheesh, this is kinda sad) Sadr was directing his forces against American forces.

See, this is what we’re talking about when we discuss the difference between experience, which McCain has plenty of, and actual judgement, or in this case, the ability to even comprehend the most basic facts on the ground, which seemingly continues to elude McCain at every step.

I’m quickly getting to the point where I can’t even say McCain would be a smarter Bush.  Just a more disastrous one.

    Few voters pay enough attention to Iraq to know the difference. Otherwise Lieberman wouldn’t have been re-elected.
