What’s The Difference Between a VA Hospital and a Middle School?

September 6th, 2008 | by Tom Harper |

Seriously, this isn’t a riddle. John McCain wants to know.

During McCain’s speech last Thursday, part of the backdrop was a giant image of Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, CA. WTF???

This nationwide TV image came as a shock to the school’s staff. Principal Donna Tobin said: “Permission to use the front of our school for the Republican National Convention was not given by our school nor is the use of our school’s picture an endorsement of any political party or view.”

Going waaay out on a limb here — I’m gonna guess that McCain’s handlers wanted to use Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC as a photo op during McCain’s speech, but they somehow got it mixed up with Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood.


And these people want to be trusted with the Presidency of the United States?????

Somebody should come up with a David Letterman style top ten ways to tell whether you’re in a middle school or a veterans’ hospital.

Or maybe McCain could visit Walter Reed Middle School and take a refresher course. He could relearn some of his old geography lessons, like: where is the Iraq-Pakistan border? (Pssssssttt! There ISN’T one).

The McCain campaign has not been available for comment.

    I was totally not getting why they were flashing images behind McSame during his speech. They didn’t synch up well, nor did they make any sense.

    Now this revelation? It’s clear that we should not trust this batch with important decisions, particularly if they can’t get the small details correct.

    good thing Walter Reed wasn’t a bombing target!!!

    And before any goes off half cocked with “it was a campaign staffer, not McCain who chose the picture” let me remind you that A) McCain is ultimately responsible for his campaign just like a CEO is responsible for their company’s actions. B) these same staffers that oversee such decisions in the campaign go on to fill staff and cabinet positions if McCain wins.

    McCain/WTF08′ They both know how to change diapers
