The “one-man gaffe machine” strikes again. According to Obama, his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz. This would have been a very difficult thing for his uncle to have done, unless of course he was enlisted in the Soviet Army.
Now I’m not one to defend Bush on this matter because I see how people find it embarrassing that their President would routinely mangle his words and facts. That said, after eight years of being derided as “Moron-in-Chief” and lovingly categorizing and compiling his malapropisms and mistakes into books to facilitate mocking him, it’s only fair that Obama be given the same treatment, right? At the very least, I’m looking forward to the long wildly speculative Vanity Fair feature about what undiagnosed disorder is causing Obama to make such obvious mistakes. The American people have a right to know.
UPDATE: Jim has more thoughts about this over at Campaign Spot.
