For domestic policy, he'll no doubt be watching "Dora the Explorer"

Who cares if Sen. Obama isn't the most experienced person when it comes to foreign policy.  At least he has good foreign policy advisors, right?  Right?  Wrong

Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”

He spelt out how American troops, spies and anti-terrorist officials could learn key lessons by understanding the desire of terrorists to emulate superheroes like Luke Skywalker, and the lust for violence of violent football fans.

Wow.  You'll note that this is the same Richard Danzig that the Telegraph seems to think is on the short list of military advisors Obama may tap for the vice presidency.  One can dream. 

I know this is obvious, but can you even imagine if, in 1999-2000, Condi Rice had said something this retarded?  Even in a pre-9/11 society, I can't imagine that something like this would have gone over well. 

Head over to the Moron-in-Chief's for some snark and a photoshop.
