Interesting article…but one wonders who the real speech writer was and whether she/he is looking for a new job after this controversy surfaces??? Or will they never notice because they do not read blogs???
Just another silly observation. John Mccain if anyone would know the differences between the country”Georgia” and the state “Georgia”. Maybe the writer for wikipedia is the one who didn’t have knowledge that there is a country ” Georgia” and a state of the USA “Georgia”
