Flak to a Flake

Senator Obama (D-Il) is getting some bad press for his attempt to put John McCain (R-AZ) down for his statements about how safe it was to walk in certain parts of Baghdad. McCain points out that Obama misspelled flak (Obama added a 'c' before the k). Flak is a mid 20th Century shortening/acronym for a German description of anti-aircraft weapons--Flugzeugabwehrkanone or Fleigerabwehrkanone. Just so you know.


The extra "c" of course makes those Bghdad neighborhoods safe to work in.
I have to salute you for your intense affinity for the non-sequitur. I never cared for them much.
