Missteps [an update]

The commentators continue to watch for the first goof by Obama on his world tour, sounding a little frustrated as the faultless choreography has suggested an abrupt resuscitation of Martha Graham. As noted here before, however, almost no one but Jon Stewart lingers on the fact that McCain can’t get straight the borders of the countries he plans to dictate to. Although it would be convenient politically for the Bush if Pakistan and Iraq were neighbors, not even his poodle General Musharraf could arrange that. Nonetheless, somehow McCain gets a pass for failing 11th grade geography while the pundit class waits breathlessly for some sign that Barack hasn’t learned his brief.

And yet the McCain campaign complains that the media "love" Obama.
