THIS is the smartest woman in the world?

It turns out that Hillary!, in addition to not knowing anyone who can translate "reset" into Russian, or that Russian is written in a Cyrillic alphabet, also is profoundly ignorant of Mexican culture:

"During her recent visit to Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unexpected stop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and left a bouquet of white flowers “on behalf of the American people,” after asking who painted the famous image.

"The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was miraculously imprinted by Mary on the tilma, or cloak, of St. Juan Diego in 1531. The image has numerous unexplainable phenomena, such as the appearance on Mary’s eyes of those present in the room when the tilma was opened and the image’s lack of decay."

When she got into the limo to go to Guadalupe, did she ask, or did anyone bother to tell her WHY the photo op was considered a good idea?

Thank heavens the smart people are in charge now...
