So Much For Presidential, Lieberman Corrects McCain Gaffe

Seems that McGrandpa McCain either through an onset of senility, or just plain ignorance made a serious Gaffe today while speaking in Jordan in his I Am Presidential World Tour.

The significant misstep occurred during a news conference in Jordan earlier Tuesday, when the presumptive Republican presidential nominee McCain repeatedly said Iran was supplying al Qaeda. Iran is predominately a Shiite country would not be aiding the Sunni dominated Al-Qaeda. OOPS!

McCain corrected himself after Sen. Joe Lieberman whispered in his ear.

"I'm sorry, the Iranians are training extremists, not al Qaeda. I am sorry, I am sorry," the Arizona senator said.

Rumor has it, that exiting the stage he whispered to Lieberman, "Shite, Sunni, what's the difference, they're all terrorists to me? Question is, did Lieberman's quick thinking move him one step closer, or one step further away from McCain?

You know it's bad when Lieberman is your babysitter.
