You are aware, probably, that Barack Obama lost his bearings recently and
said that he was going to campaign in all 57 states.
You heard this? And everybody chalked it up to, 'Well, he's tired.'
You know, this is a Dan Quayle moment. I mean, Dan Quayle goes out there
and misspells 'potato,' and we still hear jokes about it.
Barack Obama says he's gonna go out and campaign in 57 states, he was just
tired, you know, it's been such a long campaign, he's been so many
places,he probably thinks there are 57 states.
Well, I have here a printout from a web site called the International
Humanist and Ethical Union.
And here is how the second paragraph of an article on that website begins.
'Every year from 1999 to 2005 the organization of the Islamic conference
representing the 57 Islamic states presented a resolution to the United
Nations Commission on human rights called commbating.'
Obama said he's going to campaign in 57 states, and it turns out that there
are 57 Islamic states. There are 57 Islamic states.
So did Obama just lose his bearings, or was this a more telling slip,
ladies and gentlemen?
