100-Year McCain Has a Sadr Moment (As Does Joe Lieberman)
St. McCain is quickly becoming the Lauren Caitlin Upton of the GOP with yet still another Iraq gaffe:
In an interview with CNN earlier today, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) claimed that he has long understood the influence of Iraqi Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr:
I said he was still major player and his influence is going to have to be reduced and gradually eliminated.But in a report on The Situation Room today, the network noted that just two weeks ago McCain -- trying to paint a rosy picture of Iraq -- described Sadr very differently while speaking to CNN's John King in Baghdad:
His [Sadr's] influence has been on the wane for a long time.Yikes.
Meanwhile, Joe Lieberman, pimping his BFF on Fixed News, seems to be equally confused.
