Condi's Heels are Too Big for Hillary to Fill? Clinton Misses EU Leaders' Names; Claims US Democracy is "Older Than Europe's"

On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, continued her attempts to restore the world's confidence in America and, once again, failed in a spectacular array of idiocy. She's discovering that Condoleezza Rice's heels are too big to fill.

Reuters reports that Hillary commented on the United States' two-party system saying:

"I have never understood multiparty democracy. It is hard enough with
two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because
I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer
than European democracy."

Since, by most accounts, Democracy has its roots in Ancient Greece (ancient being the operative word) it's unlikely that our 233 years of democracy outdate the 2,500 years since Europe first proposed the idea. But if Obama can claim America invented the car, why not throw in democracy too?

She went on to miss EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana's name calling him "High Representative Solano."

And she referred to European Commission External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner as "Benito."

The media is calling it a "gaffe" which is a code-word for when a Democrat says something stupid. When a Republican says something stupid, they call it incompetence.

Here's a little tip for Hillary: Just because they are not American's doesn't mean you just add an "O" to everything.

Or is this just the new marketing strategy for the Obama campaign?

This week Hillary also attempted to patch things over with our good friends, the Russians, with a cheap plastic button designed to "reset" our relations with the once-superpower, but she mistranslated the button into Russian, so now our relations can be "overcharged."

Obama greeted the Prime Minister of our country's best friend in the world, the United Kingdom, with some cheap plastic DVD's and a couple of cheap plastic helicopters.

So much for restoring our place in the world. We've gone from super-power to super-joke in the course of six weeks.

Wait, no. All of these happened within the past six days.
