A Democrat sends over this clip from John McCain's economic forum just now, in which McCain, talking about energy policy, stresses the importance of "ensuring that America is secure, and not dependent on oil from people like Hugo Chavez or other parts of the Middle East. which is, we know, could be destabilized under certain sets of circumstances."
Adviser: "Pssst! John! John! Hugo Chavez isn't from the Middle East!"
McCain: "Ummmm...he's kind of dark and he has oil."
Adviser: "Venezuela, John, Venezuela."
