No Gaffe, Just Totally Out of It?

I was working on a longer post about John McCain this afternoon, which I’m hoping to post tomorrow. But I just noticed that this goof where McCain got confused about whether Iran was training al Qaeda operatives or not didn’t just happen once. McCain apparently said the same thing several times, in a couple different venues – not just in the press conference, where Joe Lieberman of all people finally had to correct him, but earlier on the Hugh Hewitt show.

(I’m assuming that no one noticed on Hewitt’s show. They said Saddam had nukes and bio weapons but left them in a safe deposit box in Damascus. So by those standards thinking the Iranians run al Qaeda isn’t that big a stretch.)
