Women in politics and the media: embarassing. OR read a book Cokie.

Exceptional post on American Exceptionalism and the current state of a union that is to stupid to know a gaffe from its asshole.
By way of contrast with the above "misspeech," Joe Biden said...
Look what we did in Bosnia. We took Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks, being told by everyone, I was told by everyone that this would mean that they had been killing each other for a thousand years, it would never work.
Here's that towering genius, Cokie Roberts, calling Biden on his "gaffe" (click image for video)...

The fact of the matter is that Bosniaks is the correct term for Bosnian Muslims. Sounds as if -- like Sarah Palin -- Cokie should maybe sometime read a book.
