McCain Confuses Iraq and Afghanistan

I'm not saying these are the biggest things in the world, but they certainly have been adding up, haven't they?

And it was McCain who owns the first big gaffe of the trip -- appearing to confuse Iraq and Afghanistan.

Asked by ABC's Diane Sawyer Monday morning whether the "the situation in Afghanistan in precarious and urgent," McCain responded:

"I think it's serious. . . . It's a serious situation, but there's a lot of things we need to do. We have a lot of work to do and I'm afraid it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq/Pakistan border," said McCain, R-Ariz., said on "Good Morning America."

Imagine if Obama made even one of these mistakes. He can't even get away with a "gaffe" like this if it's an obvious joke, like the 57 states fiasco.
