Sarah Palin, Africa and America.

Sarah Palin, Africa and America.

I guess most of you heard the news today that Sarah Palin is so stupid she thinks Africa is a Country. Well then, now, there? What can be said for the entire world that thinks this country is called America? And the flag below is the American flag?

I think you are being sarcastic? I don't believe for a minute that Palin though Africa is a country. There's some McCain staffer who got theirs shorts in a knot and apparently did not like Palin. This un-named staffer didn't have the balls to be identified and go on the record. Utter non-sense.

Either did Deep Throat, but he was telling the truth. She may or may not know Africa is a continent, the larger point is maybe she is unaware of what happened outside of the state of Alaska and was ill prepared to be a VP. Doesn't matter, they lost and it is no longer of any importance. The press has always used unnamed sources, but they usually have to verify through other sources for it to be considered accurate. The change is the papers now will quote an unnamed source, credit the unnamed source, but not have corroborating evidence to back it up and still state it as fact. The way we were taught to report was use those sources, but get at least another solid source, either named or unnamed, to confirm the facts, then find another softer source or evidence strongly supporting the statement and then you could go with it. That was only 20 years ago at a pretty lousy newspaper, the Houston Post.

And Obama thought we had 57 states and he is president. I guess he got his ketchup and his geography mixed up.

Never heard Obama didn't know how many states there were, especially since he campaigned in nearly every one and counted every electoral vote rm each. Is this a Rushism or something factual?

I don't know what Palin knows. As far as Obama he was talking about the 57 primaries which is an accurate number. Primaries are held in the American territories like Puerto Rico. What surprised me was that his campaign didn't respond to those accusations. In 2000 McCain was accused of having a black child right before the South Carolina primary. It wasn't true but it, and other bald faced lies cost him the primary.

All of this lying through unnamed sources turns me off to politicians.

Yes sarcastic.
I believe the un-named staffer/staffers are really the same persons who trashed her during the campaign. You know, incest, really the daughters baby etc. Sarah Palin is a threat to the Democrats and Moderate Republicans alike.

On the other hand calling our flag The American Flag is a pet peeve of mine.

As far as Obama saying he campaigned in 57 States? Here is another site on that matter.

I don't remember him campaigning in Guam, American Samoa, Swains Island or US Virgin Islands. But I do remember him campaigning in the Middle East, Germany and France.

American Somoa, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, District of Columbia, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, the 50 states and Democrats abroad. While the democrats abroad is not a country it held it’s own primary from Feb 5 to 12. There are approximately 6 million Americans abroad that participated. They had 11 democratic convention votes with 22 delegates each getting a half vote. 57 democratic primaries!!!!

I heard Obama is a Manchurian candidate. Once he is inaugurated Bin Laden is going to rub his magic lantern and Obama is going to let loose the American nuclear arsenal on the world. That dam muslim terrorist.

Geesh, you guys need to get a hobby.
