"George Mc — excuse me, John McCain, will give us – Freudian slip!" Joseph P. Biden, August 27, 2008.
This is stupid because at a Democratic convention it brings to mind George McGovern rather than George Bush, conjuring up memories of Democratic weakness on national security issues. It is also stupid because bringing up George McGovern raises visions of crushing Democratic electoral defeat, a bad thing to remember at a Democratic convention. Finally, it is stupid because John McCain's politics are nothing like those of George McGovern. McCain is a warrior politician, while McGovern wished to end a war.
Therefore Joseph P. Biden is stupid.
