Dumbest comment of the year award

posted by Rob at 4:43 PM

Even though we still have just over a month left in 2005, the competition is over. Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has reportedly made the most asinine comment to ever come from someone of her experience and rank. As expected, it comes from her efforts to publicly slurp her former boss.

From the Austin-American Stateman is this report from an Albright appearence at St. Edward's University:
Albright criticized the Bush administration for "a deliberate way of not learning the lessons" of Clinton's efforts to make peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. She said Clinton had so impressed the Arabs that he "could be elected president of any country" in the Middle East.

Why is this comment so offensive in its ignorance? Take it away, Best of the Web:
How many countries in the Middle East even had free elections when Bill Clinton was president? If you limit it to Arab countries, you can count them on the fingers of one foot.
