Bosniaks

The fact that Joe Biden knew that “Bosniaks” is the proper term when I thought he was mispeaking proves that he knows a hell of a lot more about the Balkans than I do. However, Cokie Roberts equally did not know that but she thinks she’s correct. Will Cokie apologize for her counter-gaffe? One doubts. Looks like Cokie has tipped her hand a little too far here.

    Interesting. When I heard Biden say Bosniaks I thought “whoa, bit of a blunder there Joe”. Not quite as bad a G W Bush calling people from Pakistan “Paki’s” but I did think it was unfortunate. Well it’s good to know that he was correct. Good information, thanks.
