McCain's Gaffe

Apparently his Sunni/Shiite slip-up just proves how much foreign policy experience he has. That's how it works in media bizarro world:
BRZEZINSKI: Lieberman was there.

TODD: The thing is -- yeah, exactly. The thing is, this is the second time that he's done it. You know --


TODD: -- this was not a one-time slip and so, you know, this just shows you how much bank -- how much of the foreign policy experience stuff he's got in the bank, because had Clinton or Obama done something like this, this would have been played on a loop, over and over, and would have absolutely hurt them politically.

Todd is, of course, correct that if Obama or Clinton had made this mix-up that it would be all over the media. But it sure doesn't indicate how great McCain is on foreign policy. It indicates that in our modern American media, Everything is Good for Republicans.
