    Dare I say that the Canaanites, the Mongol hordes and the Holy Roman Empire should be on that list too...

    Which of the 57 states of the U.S. is it the most threat to?

    I'm assuming you're being facetious?

    Not at all. I would just be very surprised if you actually thought Bachmann opining the Soviet Union is a threat is comparable to a verbal slip by Obama when he said 57 instead of 47.

    I don't think Bachmann's error during a radio interview means very much. You do. I rate your OP much the same as TheBloop's efforts.

    Edit: Oops, not your OP, sorry. I think adam warlock's bum ta tish tish sums it up. U.S. political tittle tattle. Worth a snigger. Like Obama's and Biden's and Quayle's and GW's slips.

    Combined with the absurdity of the notion that Russia is still a threat to the USA, you don't think it's significant that she didn't know the Soviet Union is no longer the Soviet Union?

    No, not really. I wouldn't support Bachmann if I were an American. And this doesn't make a jot of difference. I think people can disagree about how much of a threat Russia is or might be to U.S. strategic interests now and/or in the future. You can call it absurd by all means. I wouldn't. So, she said Soviet Union in a live radio show. So what? She'll say she was referring to Russia. Presumably she was. What does it really matter?
