The Obama campaign is pointing out McCain's recent flip-flops and confusions in a new memo:
"The self-professed candidate of 'straight talk' and 'experience' spent today changing his position on gay adoption, adopting Senator Obama’s position that we need more troops in Afghanistan after having resisted taking that position, flip flopping on whether he’d send U.S. or NATO troops (he actually offered three different explanations on where those additional troops would come from), and referring to a country that hasn’t existed since 1992 for the second time in two days."
That country would be Czechoslovakia. According to Think Progress, "This is at least the fourth time in the last year that McCain has harkened back to the old days when the Iron Curtain divided Europe."
And an old joke McCain once made about rape surfaced yesterday:
"Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, ‘Where is that marvelous ape?’"
