Two Gaffes: Two Days

16 07 2008

I offer this to you without comment from CNN.

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.

“And I regret some of the recent behavior Russia that has exhibited, and I’ll be glad to talk about that later on including reduction in oil supplies to Czechoslovakia after they agreed with us on a missile defense system, etcetera,” said the presumptive Republican nominee at a New Mexico town hall Tuesday.

More than fifteen years ago, Czechoslovakia officially split into two nations – the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

It is a reason for legitimate concern though. The Austro-Hungarian Empire is weakening from within, the situation in Bohemia could deteriorate even further. Someone may even get defenestrated!
