Palin- Afganistan, ‘Our Neighboring Country…’October 6, 2008
In an amazing performance on neo-con geography, Sarah Palin said “They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan.” Now, I’m not the best at geography, and certainly never would be confused with a cartographer, however, I am quite sure that I could place where Afghanistan is in relation to the US. For those of you that are unsure whether Sarah Palin is right, or I am, let’s review our neighboring countries.
List of Countries that Border the US (For Review by Governor Palin)
I know, I know, you could include Bermuda and Cuba, but I prefer the above list.
So if Sarah Palin is right, and Canada is our hat, and Mexico is our pants, then what would Afghanistan be? Maybe it’s our shirt, the dirty one we left on the couch…on the other side of the world!
