Noted Foreign Policy Genius, With 36 Years of Expertise, Thinks We Kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, Despite the Fact They Periodically Hold the Government Hostage and Take Over Opposition TV Stations

Unbelievably awful gaffe. Not ticky-tack. Not "arguably wrong."

Flat out, ludicrously wrong, with no way on earth to rescue it by postulating "Oh, I meant x."

But remember: Sarah Palin was "loose with the facts" and showed only "a superficial talking-point understanding of national issues."

Because this error is so deadly, the media will utterly refuse to report it. If they can't spin it -- and they can't spin this -- they simply embargo it.

And he lied about coal.

Oh? And that jaw-dropping claim (which he repeated for emphasis) that we spent more in three weeks in Iraq than in seven years in Afghanistan? Was this anything a rational human being could possibly believe was even plausibly close to accurate?

And he lied, and lied, and lied, and erred, and erred, and erred, and gaffed, and gaffed, and gaffed.

I am dumfounded at that Iraq/Afghanistan one. It is so obviously crank -- laughable on its face. How on earth could he have asserted this as true, and then repeated it -- "Let me say that again so it sinks in"? How on earth could anyone with a brain possibly believe this?

Consider how borderline retarded you'd have to be to even consider this to be true.

Think about it.

This guy is not "a blowhard." He is a fucking moron.

Ready to step in and be president? Only so long as the most taxing question a president faces during the day is "What color are oranges?"
