The Daily Gaffe - Iraq/Pakistan Border

McCain, chiding Obama for his misjudgment, issues a gaffe that would have been a 48-hour story had Obama made it:

McCain: We have a lot of work to do, and I'm afraid it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq-Pakistan border. And I would not announce that I'm going to attack Pakistan, as Senator Obama when he was did ... during his campaign.
As you know, Iraq's eastern border is Iran. Iran's eastern border is Iraq. The particular amusement in this quote for me is McCain's lecturing, faux-polite dig there at the end. It's a tasty scoop of irony for an old man who gets confused about where the fronts of our wars are.
