As Senator John McCain stepped to the lectern yesterday in his surprise visit to Libya, his aides were worried. Dressed in full battle gear, McCain had refused to wear his glasses to read his opening remarks.
A stunned media and an angry crowd heard him say:
"I am so pleased to be here in your beautiful Labia! You have become the new herpes of the world!"
Of course he was supposed to say, "I am so pleased to be in your beautiful Libya. You have become the new heroes of the world!"
A shocked media ran for their cell phones and the crowd grew angry and started to yell epithets. McCain's aides quickly removed the puzzled Senator from the area.
Word of his mistakes echoed around the world and particularly in the right wing media and blogoshere. He was being hailed as a hero in the Tea Party movement. As his plane quickly left Libya, McCain hearing of his reception by the conservatives in the GOP issued a statement saying he had made the mistakes on purpose.
A noticeably upset White House issued a statement saying they had no comment.
The entire Muslim world has issued a Jihad against McCain and the United States of America.
"The Americans have made an affront to all Muslims and particularly our Muslim women. We will not rest until McCain, his inflammatory talk, and his ilk are rotting in hell!"
In related news, the people of Libya have joined together in their anger and have made peace between the warring factions. The parties have agreed to partition the country. From now on, Tripoli will be known as Labia Major and the rest of the country is to be named Labia Minor.
