"McCain Again Refers To Czechoslovakia, A Non-Existent Country"

"McCain Again Refers To Czechoslovakia, A Non-Existent Country"

Shares

McCain's still having trouble memorizing what he's told to say, keeps making the same kinds of mistakes, caught by TPM here:

At his press avail today, John McCain referenced current relations between Russia and, um, a non-existent country.

From a transcript…

"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, hasn't existed in over 15 years. Not the hugest deal, of course, but McCain keeps making this mistake.

Around three months ago, McCain told Don Imus that he would "work closely with Czechoslovakia and Poland and other countries"

somehow the republicans will cheat their way into office again this November and theres nothing we can do about it. but this time i hope obama stands up for himself instead of conceding like a little biitch that kerry was.

Another mistake is in fact that Russian side reduce the energy supplies to Czech Republic. This was just technical problem of company who transfer oil from Russia to Czech Rep. and it was not big deal. We do not depend on Russian oil only.

UPDATE: I've recommended to Troy that he read my post before commenting, always a good idea. /craig
If a non-critical grammatical mistake is the best you've got against McCain, then the country will continue to be safe from the Socialist on the left for 4 more years.

Is anybody at all concerned that John McCain still thinks Czechoslovakia exists?
News quote:
"For the second time in two days, John McCain has referred to current events in “Czechoslovakia” – a country that officially ceased to exist in January of 1993."
