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"
