Someone Who Beats Biden At Historical Ignorance

From September 5, 2012 The Hill:
Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) appeared to botch American and Brooklyn political history during an appearance on "The Colbert Report" that aired Tuesday night, saying that slavery in the United States persisted under the Dutch as late as 1898.
This makes Biden's explanation of FDR going on television to reassure Americans after Black Tuesday look downright knowledgeable.  Remember when Democrats used to make fun of George W. Bush's ignorance?

In my best Adolf Eichmann voice, “But he’s Bush!” (i.e. he deserves it).
This goes back to the argument that for the Dems, Bush is their International Jew, or to put a more literary picture on it, Emmanuel Goldstein from 1984.
