You can't get there from here

Mr Burns: "I'd like to send this letter to the Prussian consulate in Siam by aeromail. Am I too late for the 4:30 autogyro?"

For the third time in a year, John McCain has mentioned the no longer existent country of Czechoslovakia when discussing foreign policy. That's not an uncommon mistake for Americans of his age (or any other age), but McCain is using his purported foreign policy expertise as one of the main arguments as to why he should be president. Voters need to be assured that he isn't going to declare war on the Byzantine Empire as soon as he gets into office.

Update: He did it again today.
