The Reality-Based Community is Still in Danger

John McCain's campaign for President is based on support for the Iraq occupation, which he claims represents the mature judgment of a senator with decades of foreign-policy experience -- and which makes it especially embarrassing when he makes elementary gaffes regarding foreign policy.

But it goes beyond either a display of ignorance or a slip of the tongue when, having been corrected about who is training whom in Iran, he continues to repeat the same false information for the rest of the day, as reported by HuffPo.

Apparently, his strategy is to combine Bush's bellicosity with Bush's contempt for the facts.  How delightful.
