That makes 59 States – Bush Would Be Proud

This very much reminds me of the “Mandela is dead” comments that Bush made – except that Obama was clearly making a mistake in this instance*.

Hands up who thinks this real error will be raised as often as Bush’s were, or even McCain’s. Actually, I think the criteria for a McCain scandal has been set at the “someone thought he was in danger of making the mistake” level.

*I’m quite happy to concede that he may have been meaning “states and territories”, but the point here is that left wing politicians get the benefit of the doubt, the right never seems to.

Update: they’ve already designed a pin for Obama to refuse to wear.
