Well, this was surely awkward. Tea Party Freshman Rep. Curt Clawson (R-Flori-duh) is the latest cringe-worthy inductee into the Sunshine State’s face-palm Hall of Fame after he repeatedly mistook two high ranking U.S. government officials for representatives of the government of India at a congressional hearing.

To their credit, these senior employees of the U.S. government handled the situation flawlessly.

We’re sure Rep. Clawson would prefer that people didn’t see this video, but we hope you’ll share it far and wide!

Sweden and Finland, for many years, stayed out of NATO; in 2022, they applied for membership. And U.S. President Joe Biden, in contrast to former President Donald Trump’s anti-NATO views, has welcomed NATO’s expansion.
