Out of touch

There has been much talk about no child being left behind.  Perhaps we need to institute a program where politicians need to pass a test before they are able to run for office.  If they fail, they have to attend one year of school before the are eligible again.

Perhaps then we would not have to endure the embarassment of having a presidential candidate who does not know where Spain is.  Or who is head of state in Spain.  Or whether Spain is an enemy of the United States of America or not.

Knowing these things tends to matter when you are responsible for tens of thousands of nuclear warheads and the largest stockpile of biological and chemical weapons in the world.

Can we risk a US president who does not know whether to nuke or to embrace Spain?
