John McCain keeps forgetting that Czechoslovakia is not a country. John McCain maybe planning to visit Narnia in the near future. In case you think this is being picky....remember President George W. Bush said this was an issue when McCain made this same mistake in 2000. Eight years later McCain continues to believe that Czechoslovakia exists.
According to Steve Clements:
Second, before Republicans condemn Dems for being picky on this, let's not forget that in the 2000 campaign, when McCain also screwed up Czechoslovakia, it was none other than George W. Bush who said it deserved to be a campaign issue: "A guy gets up and quizzes me [on world leaders] ... but John McCain says something about the 'ambassador to Czechoslovakia.' Well, I know there is no Czechoslovakia [there's a Czech Republic and a Slovakia], but yet it didn't make the nightly national news." Huffington Post' Looks like John McCain is like an old dog who can't learn new tricks....these old dogs just "stay the course."
