eye rack

2 November 2008

Maybe it’s just a pet peeve, but when I hear high level politicians like that wacky Alaskan mispronouncing other country names, it makes my skin crawl.  It’s just plain rude.  Seriously, in 2008, it seems pretty clear to me that if you insist on calling a country “Eye Rack” instead of Iraq, you’re thumbing your nose at a whole nation of people.  Way to get those people behavin’ like you want em to.  I think politicians of that ilk will never gain credibility outside their own borders unless unless they act like mature, courteous citizens of the world. 

Here’s hoping that particular politician won’t be talking about Iraq or Eye Rack on a national stage after she is sent packing back to where she can keep an eye on Russia from her kitchen window.
