Listen carefully to this video of John McCain's comments about the Russia-Georgia conflict delivered during an interview on CNN:
Nations don't invade other nations in the 21st century? That certainly explains a lot about why tens of thousands of American troops are in Iraq right now! We didn't invade Iraq and remove its previous government in 2003. What we did was send our military men and women over there for a long vacation. They were just having a nice picnic when Saddam Hussein and the Baath Party fell and the damnable MSM whipped up a bunch of nonsense that we had something to do with the situation. Barack Obama wants to end our forces' holiday and make them come home, but John McCain knows how hard they work and wants to keep the happy fun party going for as long as possible! There ain't no party like a Baghdad party 'cause a Baghdad party don't stop.
Nations don't invade other nations in the 21st century?
What happened to the requirement that a US president actually be born a citizen of the US? Clearly, McCain isn't from the same planet as the rest of us, let alone the same country. Or maybe he's just figuring that since Dubya got elected to a second term after demonstrating that he had the IQ of a half-eaten Pop Tart he ought to get a jump on the game and prove to the public that he's stupid enough to be president. There must be some cunning strategy involved here. Or maybe he's just demonstrating to us once again that he's a yoga master capable of going into his famous "goat swallows his hoof" stance at any moment.
Still, I'm inclined toward the most parsimonious explanation of this latest air biscuit issuing from the mouth of McCain. That is, he's simply an idiot.
