For those of you who are sad that John McCain/Sarah Palin lost the election, perhaps this report will make you feel a little better about the way things turned out.
It appears that Sarah Palin never knew Africa was a continent.
She thought it was a country, and that when people refer to “South Africa”, they were merely referring to the southern portion of the country of Africa…
… Not realizing that South Africa is a country itself.
Unbelievable, I know.
Now before you start hoppin’ up and down, yelling about the liberal mainstream media, let me first explain that the source of this information is none other than Fox News.
In fact, it was Fox News’ own chief political correspondent, Carl Cameron, that gave us this delightful morsel of information to begin with.
She didn’t understand, McCain aides told me, that Africa was a continent and not a country and actually asked them if South Africa wasn’t just part of the country as opposed to a country in the continent…
To think that this woman is actually taken seriously by anyone at all chills me to my core.
Realizing that there is, as we speak, a political machine that is gearing up for this woman’s 2012 presidential bid is even worse.
