Sarah Palin: Africa Is A Continent, Rumors I Don't Know That Are 'Lies' - It Is Antarctica She Doesn't Know Is A Continent

You know Antarctica?  That place Sarah Palin can also see from Alaska.  Ooops, she didn't mean to say she can see the Country Antartica from Alaska, she meant that Antartica is that other cold place opposite the North Pole.

Oh, you mean that is a Continent too?

No Sarah Palin didn't say anything (to my knowledge) about Antartica.  But there is a lot of debate about what she said about Africa.

On the heels of Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) loss to President Barack Obama in the 2008 race, intriguing details about the internal operations of the pair's campaign began to trickle out. HuffPost's Nick Graham reported at the time:

According to Fox News Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron, there was great concern within the McCain campaign that Palin lacked "a degree of knowledgeability necessary to be a running mate, a vice president, a heartbeat away from the presidency," in part because she didn't know which countries were in NAFTA, and she "didn't understand that Africa was a continent, rather than a series, a country just in itself."
At last one thing upon which I can agree with Republican strategist - Sarah Palin lacks a degree of knowledgeability necessary to be a running mate, a vice president, a heartbeat away from the presidency, much less the President.

Truth be told, many Americans probably can't name all of the Continents (showing just how poorly we are doing at educating our children), but those people are not asking to run our Country.

  1. I doubt Sarah is ever going to run for office again. Even Fox news people are starting to give her a hard time.
