Sarah Palin Didn’t Know Africa Was A Continent

November 6th, 2008 // 10 Comments

You might want to watch the video above if you voted for John McCain. It’s sort of disturbing. Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron recites for Bill O’Reilly exactly how much the scantily clad Sarah Palin reportedly didn’t know when it came to politics, and global affairs. Some of them are matters that maybe a homegrown politician like Palin might had to have had been schooled on eventually. But one revelation is particularly frightening. She reportedly didn’t know Africa was a continent.

Now, you might have been raised in the backwoods, thirty days of night tundra, girl, but you should know all of your continents. Wasn’t there some sort of test along the way? Perhaps some of that $150,000 you spent on clothes should have went to a copy of Geography for Dummies. Cuz, damn.

    I read she didn’t get a passport till 2006 and has left the US once to visit Kuwait in 2007.

    My mind boggles at that lack of interest in what goes on overseas. There is a huge interesting world out there beyond the US.

    Oh that’s a shocker. She is an idiot what did anyone expect.

    Yeah, real qualified to be a VP, T-Bone.

  3. Palin the Wassislibilly and her Paloonie cult

    What would you expect from a wassabilly who thinks that proximity to a country gives her foreign policy experience. Again, another arrogant, entitled, asshole who feels she has the right to tell others how to live. Bitch needs to become the meal of a moose.

  4. Sarah (NOT Palin)

    This is an excerpt from a much longer email.
    I think this pretty much sums it up. I’ve had more college than she has & I KNOW I’m NOT qualified for V.P. of the USA

    Educational Background:

    Barack Obama:
    Columbia University – B.A. Political Science with a Specialization
    in International Relations.
    Harvard – Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

    Joseph Biden:
    University of Delaware – B.A. in History and B.A. in Political
    Science.
    Syracuse University College of Law – Juris Doctor (J.D.)

    vs.

    John McCain:
    United States Naval Academy – Class rank: 894 of 899

    Sarah Palin:
    Hawaii Pacific University – 1 semester
    North Idaho College – 2 semesters – general study
    University of Idaho – 2 semesters – journalism
    Matanuska-Susitna College – 1 semester
    University of Idaho – 3 semesters – B.A. in Journalism

    Education isn’t everything, but this is about the two highest offices in the land as well as
    our standing in the world.

    I love that O’Reilly called the commentary on Palin’s wardrobe “nit-picky”. Oh, really? If Michelle Obama had spent that kind of money on her own wardrobe he would be screaming to anyone who would listen that it shows she’s some sort of elitist snob misusing campaign money. What a tool.

    I also love how they managed to diss her and still come out sounding like they support all things Palin/McCain. AGH!

  6. Tony

    OMG..thats terrible BUT..

    You’d think someone who claims to be a constitutional lawyer would know there are 50 states not 57

  7. say what?

    Tony, you know as well as I do that Obama mis-spoke when he said that.

    he meant that he had visited 47 states.

    I can forgive if someone mis-speaks, but not if they’re ignorant of the facts.

    not knowing that Africa is a continent? or what countries are in NAFTA? that’s ignorance, not mis-speaking.

    what REALLY cracks me up is that some factions of the GOP think she’s their ticket for 2012. That alone tells us what state of disarray that party is in.

  8. Xicana

    Wow, the Republican party is imploding.

    And I agree with green cardigan. This is a HUGE planet, go out and learn about! It’s ridiculous how little American’s know about other countries (and continents)!

  9. Obama is a Fascist

    come on… this is obviously a lie. you people are so eager to hate you cannot see how absurd this smear is. exercise a little critical thinking please. being skeptical is not a bad thing, especially when an anonymous source is being quoted as the source of a smear like this.

    by the way, did you know Obama thinks there are 57 states? i can show you the YouTube video where he says so! of course it was a slip of the tongue, so you don’t see his detractors running around claiming how dumb he is.

  10. UNNAMEDSOURCESARELIARSandTROUBLEMAKERS

    This is total bullshit and anyone who continues to believe this crap is a total loser.
    Hooray, Obama won. That’s great but what has amazed me is the supposedly intelligent group of liberals that supported him believe every LIE that this UNNAMED SOURCE says. Let’s give her a chance you dumb asses and quit making yourself look stupid. Carl is quoting this from an “UN NAMED SOUCE” – and it’s a total lie. Liberals sure do like to kick people when they’re down.
    Watch Greta on Monday and you will see the real Sarah Palin. At least I hope so because she does appear to be one hell of a woman and GOD BLESS HER.
