More cluelessness.

Here's Karen Hughes smugly relating how she outsmarted some punk Egyptian:

I had one person at one lunch raise the issue of the President mentioning God in his speeches. And I asked whether he was aware that previous American presidents have also cited God, and that our Constitution cites "one nation under God." He said "well, never mind" and went on to something else. So he sort of was trying to equate that with the terrorists’ (inaudible). So I explained that I didn’t really think that was something you could equate. And he sort of dropped it and moved on. He was one of the opposition leaders in Egypt.

Which is all well and good, except for the minor detail that the Constitution, of course, doesn't contain the phrase "one nation under God."

Can we put the grown-ups back in charge, please?
