Speaking of Ignorance About History

| | Comments (0)
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was on The Colbert Report last week. She recently released a new book, and she said that before she started research for it, she thought President Bush's use of religious language was unique in U.S. history.



How could our former Secretary of State think that? I would hope that she would know a lot more about U.S. history than I do. Apparently not.

I mean, sure, points for learning and admitting you were wrong, but ... just wow.
