2nd Czechoslovakia Error

For the 2nd time in as many days, presidential candidate and current affairs guru John McCain has referenced “Czechoslovakia” in a contemporary context. That country hasn’t existed by that name for 15 years. Here are some of our predictions for how this historical place will keep popping up in his everyday speech.

“I am aware of Czechoslovakia.”

“I can’t wait to be President of Czechoslovakia.”

“The Sunnis are in Czechoslovakia. The Shiites are in Persia. Where is the Internet?”

“My favorite thing about Czechoslovakia is that it exists and I want to bomb it.”

“Time Machine?! Time Machine?! I just want to go to Czechoslovakia!”

“I am 18 years younger than Czechoslovakia. Who knew?”

Czechoslovakia is a cunt
