Sarah Palin doesn't have maps

Remember Miss South Carolina? Back in 2007, she was asked during the Miss Teen USA Pageant why one-fifth of Americans can't find the United States on a map. Her response:

"I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some . . . people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over HERE in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children"

Today, during her bus trip to nowhere, Sarah Palin was asked about Paul Revere's ride. Her response:

“He who warned, uh, the, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringin’ those bells and, um, makin’ sure as he’s ridin’ his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that, uh, we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free and we were gonna be armed.”

The difference between the two? Miss South Carolina was publicly humiliated and went on The Amazing Race, Sarah Palin, however, is one of the most influential figures in our politics and media and is treated like a legitimate candidate for the presidency. And she's complete moron. We'd probably be better off with Miss South Carolina, at least she's traveled outside of the United States before.
