What's The Difference Between a VA Hospital and a Middle School?
Seriously, this isn't a riddle. John McCain wants to know.
During McCain’s speech last Thursday, part of the backdrop was a giant image of Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, CA. WTF???
This nationwide TV image came as a shock to the school’s staff. Principal Donna Tobin said: “Permission to use the front of our school for the Republican National Convention was not given by our school nor is the use of our school’s picture an endorsement of any political party or view.”
Going waaay out on a limb here — I'm gonna guess that McCain’s handlers wanted to use Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC as a photo op during McCain’s speech, but they somehow got it mixed up with Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood.
And these people want to be trusted with the Presidency of the United States?????
Somebody should come up with a David Letterman style top ten ways to tell whether you're in a middle school or a veterans’ hospital.
Or maybe McCain could visit Walter Reed Middle School and take a refresher course. He could relearn some of his old geography lessons, like: where is the Iraq-Pakistan border? (Pssssssttt! There ISN'T one).
The McCain campaign has not been available for comment.
