O Którym Kraju On Mówi?

While speaking in Munich last weekend, Vice President Biden credited "Greece, Ireland, Poland, Spain and Italy" with taking steps to improve their economies.  Only one problem.  Poland hasn't had any recent serious trouble their economy.  Instead, it was Portugal, not Poland, which has had economic problems similar to those of Greece, Italy, Spain and Ireland.  Well, you can't blame him too much, he got the first two letters right, didn't he?  Kind of like mixing up Austria and Australia, for which we can truly blame Bush.  Or maybe like the Maldives and the Malvinas (the Argentinian name for the Falklands).  In any event, I'd say that Joe has come up with a worthy sequel to his boss's "Polish death camps" gaffe.

Read more at the Washington Examiner and the Telegraph.

To finish, I'd better translate the post title.  It's Polish (not Portuguese) for "Which country is he talking about?"
