Obama Says He's Visited 57 States

May 9th, 2008 9:26 PM

Amazingly, Barack Obama claims to have visited 57 states!  I'm going to be generous and chalk this gaffe up to exhaustion, because it is difficult for me to fathom that someone who wants to be the President of the United States could actually be this stupid.  Watch the video.

I will give Obama the benefit of the doubt on this, and you can bet the media will give it a complete pass.  Marc Ambinder reminds us that the media wouldn't do the same if this had been McCain.

But if John McCain did this — if he mistakenly said he’d visited 57 states — the media would be all up in his grill, accusing him of a senior moment. Just saying….

Of course the leftwing media would have a field day with this if it had been McCain, however since it is Obama expect to hear crickets.
