Icing on the Cake

According to an article in Forbes

Bush said he would talk with Musharraf about Pakistan's "vital cooperation in the war on terror and our efforts to foster economic and political development so we can reduce the appeal of radical Islam."

In a farewell speech in New Delhi, Bush ran into trouble when he praised Pakistan as "a force for freedom and moderation in the Arab world." The White House hastened to correct Bush's reference to Pakistan as an Arab nation, and said he meant to say Muslim.

How can a leader be so dumb, that when visiting a trusted ally he can't even rememebr wether the country is Asian or Arab.

We all know he's dumb. The Americans know it... everyone else knows it. Plus, it is a pretty common misperception among a lot of americans that muslim = arab = muslim. Frankly speaking, this kind of thing has stopped surprising me now!

"All hail the President!"
