From President Obama’s recent speech in Cairo:
“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition.”
During the Spanish Inquisition Cordoba and Andalusia were under Spanish Catholic rule! What on earth is this guy blabbing about??!!
Imagine Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Olberman, etc. etc. etc. etc. if –say–Rush Limbaugh had uttered such a howler.
Not that any of the above “comedians” would have known any different….But one of their writers would have surely pounced on it.
