Barack Obama campaigning last Friday:
It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.
Video here; lapel pin here.

If John McCain had said it, Democrats and the media would be trumpeting the slip as evidence of senility.

Oh, my. How to select from alst the quips which come to mind:

Yes, but in Democrats, that's an improvement.


Didn't George Bush get skewered for visiting only 53 states?


57? Well, you've heard of 'Ebonics'? This would be your first lesson in 'Algebro'*


Yes, but in Democrats, that's a major leap towards sanity and rationality.


*(hat tip to my cousin for the 'Algebro' quip)

Surprising that Obama was able to listen to and hear and obey his staff, but unable to listen to, hear and understand the message of his Reverend Wright even after so very many years of attentive devotion to Wright. Obama remains a total chicken when it comes to debating Hillary Clinton and that is perfectly understandable considering his emptiness.
