image for McCain confuses Sunnis, Shi'ites and Shriners

Presidential hopeful John McCain seemed once again confused about who the enemy is in Iraq. At a speech before the National Association of Really Old People (NAROP) in Cleveland, McCain made the claim that the surge had put the Shriners on the run.

"Make no mistake," said McCain, "our brave men and women in uniform are defeating the insurgent Shriners sponsored by El Boom Shacka Lacka. Even with extensive support from Iran, those moped-driving maniacs are being rounded up and disarmed. I'll tell you quite honestly, ladies and gentlemen, I always suspected this group was a front for something more ominous, with their fez's and Imperial Potentates. Now, they're going to need those precious hospitals of theirs for the wounded."

In the question and answer period following the talk, McCain was asked by a self-proclaimed Shriner what proof he had that Shriners were involved in military actions in Iraq.

"Go back to your temple and sit on your fez," shouted an emotional McCain. "Oh you talk a good game, but you're just another Iraqi sect trying to tear down a fledgling democracy and create chaos. Parades every day, that's what you want. And you want everyone to wear crazy clothes. Well we're not going to stand for it. You've failed and we've won."

McCain then attempted to run after the questioner before being bogged down in a sea of wheelchairs.
