Orrin’t you sorry you said Vietnam?
Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, flubbed Monday and referred to Iraq as Vietnam while commenting on Fox News against an immediate troop withdrawal.
“The Democratic Party seems to be taken over by the Michael Moore contingent in their attitude toward Vietnam, and they continually call for a withdrawal of troops at a time when we haven’t finished the job,” Hatch said on the network’s morning show. Hatch’s spokesman acknowledged the error, which was first reported on the American Prospect Web log.
It was Sam Rosenfeld who picked up Hatch’s slip for Tapped.
