CBS’S CHARLIE ROSE PRETENDS TO BE SHOCKED WHEN LINDSEY GRAHAM COMPARES OBAMA TO NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN OVER IRAN DEAL: I’m not sure which is more “shocking:” that Rose needs a fainting couch after hearing Graham’s comparison. Or, that on the eve of the 2008 election, Rose was pretending “I don’t know what Barack Obama’s worldview is.”  Or that such a comparison is actually insulting to Chamberlain. Yes, “The British Prime Minister got the biggest issue of the day wrong. But no one ever doubted that he loved his country,” as Mark Steyn wrote earlier this year:

So please don’t insult Neville Chamberlain by comparing him to Obama. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, because conspiracies are generally a comforting illusion: the real problem with Obama is that the citizens of the global superpower twice elected him to office. Yet one way to look at the current “leader of the free world” is this: If he were working for the other side, what exactly would he be doing differently?

Over to you, Charlie.

RELATED: And speaking of Graham, Donald Trump gave out his cell phone number on live TV. As Allahpundit quips, Must be a new tactic he’s trying out. If he was intent on doxxing every famous person who’s called him a jackass, as Graham did last night on CNN, he would have started selling maps to Jon Stewart’s house years ago.”

And as Bill Hobbs adds on Twitter:

Arguably, that wasn’t Trump’s worst gaffe today.
