The US have got themselves a reputation as being not the most intelligent lot on earth for some reason. I did ean earlier post mentioning the way a Democratic Senator (Joe Biden) completely ripped off a Kinnock speech many moons ago thinking no-one would notice and comes comes this news: a Republican Prseidential would-be has been quoting poisonous passages in a tape of Osama Bin Laden (Al Quaeda) and attributing them to liberal fave Barak Obama (Democrat). Apparently this was a slip of the tongue. Blue-tongue disease more like.

Let’s face it all nations have individuals capable of making gaffes – whole books are published of UK ones – but if this bloke wants to lead the western world he’ll have to do his research quite dramatically better than this.
