McCain Doesn't Know Condoms Block HIV

This article starts my file on McCain's gaffes, screw-ups, panders and other general idiocy coming from him and his camp.

McCain was asked a recent news conference:

Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?

His answer?
(Long pause) "You've stumped me."

Seriously? Seriously!? What solar system has this guy been living in?

It would be one thing if he said "Yes, but I believe abstinence is the better option [blah, blah, blah]. " But, he basically said he didn't know. Who the heck, especially among politicians, doesn't know this?

Is this the realm in which his age becomes a decisive negative for him? As in "Well, I don't really know about this new-fangled information that was discovered in the last 30 years?"
