Sarah Palin:

The Hits Just Keep Comin'

11/8/2008 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin is still sore from pulling the knife out of her back from fellow Republicans.

The Governor, now back in Alaska, is responding to recent allegations that she didn't know Africa was a continent, and can't name the countries in NAFTA -- calling the people who said them "cruel, mean-spirited, immature, jerks." Palin claims the rumors aren't true, calling them ridiculous.

Tell that to John McCain.

#9, you claim it is coming from the Repub's and so does the media; however, nobody has been able to give a name. Why is that? Just more media bashing.

And congrats on getting the coke sniffer into office, maybe he will legalize drugs for the sick now right? LOL!

Where the hell did you go to school? SPAIN is NOT involved in NAFTA...it's part of Europe! Jeez, people, it's not that difficult..look at a map of the continent itself and you will see only 3 large countries. This is pathetic that so many people are so ignorant to something that's so simple. Sad, sad, sad.

This reminds me of that video that was circulating a few years ago. A news team from some foreign country was going around showing Americans a map of the world without country names, and they were asking them to locate Iraq. Everyone on the video blew it. Similar questions were also asked, and there were quite a few people who couldn't even find the U.S. on the map.

Another story: a woman I know is a college student here in the U.S., and she was involved in a special Honors program that involved study at the University of Salamanca in Spain during the winter quarter. She told me that a number of her fellow college students only packed light clothes and swimsuits, because they thought that Spain was in some tropical or semi-tropical area of Latin America.

And these were college students! ... and _above_ _average_ college students!

It's sad how much the American educational system has deterioriated during the past several decades. We now have one or two generations of near-illiterates in this country.

PS: you are using the word "continent", but many of the people you are addressing here don't even know what that word means. They couldn't tell you the difference between a "continent" and a "commonwealth" and a "country" and a "county" and a "cow".

Well, I'm exaggerating about the last one, of course. Still, this is indeed sad, sad, sad.

Regarding the trashing of Sarah Palin for being ignorant...if the NEIMAN MARCUS shoe fits...

Palin is a poor example of a mother...she chose to have five children. She has a special needs child who needs HIS MOTHER everyday for his daily developmental therapy. You do not put a Downs Syndrome child in the corner and throw a blanket over his head. He will need to be taken to therapy - often! It's almost a career in and of itself and you cannot abandon it to anyone other than HIS MOTHER. She has a 17 year old daughter who is going to be an UNWED mother...I am not hearing the wedding bells ring!, and thus she'll have a newborn grandchild she will have to support and help raise.

I have no regard for this woman - a religious zealot who spews hate out of both sides of her hypocritical mouth, who connives to cover her political misdoings, and is vindictive and devisive. Yes, she's just about what you'd expect from a Republican politician. Great choice, RNC and John McCain. Keep up the GREAT work.

I'm glad Barack won. If something had happened to McCain, she would have been the next president. She doesn't know enough about this country to run this country. Also, she sounded dumb. You would expect her to at least know her countries from her continents if she is going to run this country! She blamed losing on Bush. It wasn't all of Bush's fault.

All the idiots that call Sarah Palin stupid, they are the idiots. Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska. She couldn't be that stupid. She has to balance a budget, make major decisions about her state, and take care of her family. She can multi-task.
Evidently the people of Alaska think she's great,and smart. She has an 85% approval rating. More than the democrats in Congress.The jerks that criticize her the most, are the jerks that voted for Obama. This country will be flushed down the toilet. Sarah Palin had more experience than Obama. He ran for President for two years, and sat on his duff in the Senate for two years, doing nothing. He accomplished nothing.
