Palin and Africa

Now that the lid is off, the rumor-mongering elitists at Fox News report that McCain aides are claiming Sarah Palin thought Africa is a single country rather than a continent.

In my spirit of post-election good feelings, I simply refuse to believe it. Well, okay, I could believe Sarah Palin’s ignorance of the world beyond Alaska was so profound. But I can’t believe McCain and his people were prepared to have such a person a heartbeat away from the most powerful job in the world. Surely they would never have selected someone with such a lack of the most basic understanding of the world. Would they?
