A MCCAIN-OBAMA TRIP TO IRAQ? Well, that would show renewed interest. But don’t count on it.

UPDATE: Reader Matthew Conlan notices something:

Within the link you provided on a McCain-Obama Trip to Iraq, there seemed to be an explanation for Obama’s “I See Dead People” comments yesterday. Perhaps he and his campaign honestly don’t know the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day. The quote from the article:

Obama spokesman Bill Burton replied: “Senator Obama thinks Memorial Day is a day to honor our nation’s veterans, not a day for political posturing.”

Shouldn’t this Elementary School-knowledge be a pre-requisite for the position of Commander In Chief?

Or at least for spokesmen. To be fair to Obama, he spent those elementary school years in Indonesia, where that distinction probably wasn’t emphasized.
