Barack Obama delivered a Memorial Day speech in New Mexico.

After opening greetings to the local Democratic Party poobahs, he began:

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes – and I see many of them in the audience here today – our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

Does Obama know that “fallen” refers to a soldier who was killed in the line of duty?  Maybe not.  He seems to have had little or no contact with military matters in his sheltered life.

    Obama’s not the sharpest tool in the shed.

    When Dan Quail or George Bush make a gaffe its proof positive they are “stupid.” If McCain does it its proof he’s “old.”

    But when Obama claims he’s been in 57 states, or that his grandfather must have been in the Soviet Army to march into Aushwitz………..the “journalists” in the mainstream media tell us he’s tired. Can you say “in the tank” for a candidate?
