How many more of these will it take before we finally dispense with the idea that John McCain is some sort of foreign policy genius who is uniquely qualified to be commander-in-chief? Today on "Good Morning America," John McCain was asked whether he agreed with Barack Obama when he says the situation in Afghanistan is "precarious and urgent." In predictable fashion, McCain downplays the significance of the deteriorating security situation there. In perhaps less predictable fashion, he magically redraws the borders of two Middle Eastern countries.

We have a lot of work to do. It's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq-Pakistan border.

I doubt anyone here really needs me to do this, but here we go:

As you can clearly see, there is no common border between Iraq and Pakistan. Just another gaffe to add to the pile.

Can you help us out?
