Do we really want another clueless president?
Posted by Jill | 6:52 AM
While Joe Scarborough is looking increasingly hysterical this morning as he continues to pound the drum of How Dare Rev. Wright Say Those Mean Things About America and extolling the virtues of yesterday's 200-plus point drop in the Dow because it means people are taking PROFITS (!!!!!), he's conveniently ignoring the fact that John McCain, the man painting himself as the most qualified candidate to handle Middle East policy, doesn't seem to have a clue as to just who is whom in the Islamic world.

Good thing Keith Olbermann recognizes that not knowing the difference between Sunni and Shia is not just something we've seen before, but a serious problem. Watch this segment from last night's Countdown, especially when Jonathan Alter talks about McCain not being "a detail guy." Haven't we had a president like this already? And isn't this why we're in this mess?

So someone please tell me the difference between John McCain and the clueless man who is unable to admit a mistake in this segment from last night's show:

As the New York Times says this morning, "It was clear long ago that Mr. Bush had no plan for victory, only a plan for handing this mess to his successor. Americans need to choose a president with the vision to end this war as cleanly as possible."

It's equally clear that John McCain is not that individual.
