McCain and Palin fail geography ...

First it was John McCain, seemingly not understanding that Spain was in Europe ...
In an interview with a Florida affiliate of Spain's Union Radio, McCain was asked, if elected president, would he invite Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero to the White House.
"I would be willing to meet with those leaders who are friends and want to work with us in a cooperative fashion," McCain said. He then mentioned Mexican President Calderon, who he said "is fighting a very tough fight against the drug cartels."
Then it was Sarah Palin, seeming not knowing where SHE was.
Palin introduced herself to more than 4,000 at a rally in Cedar Rapids (Iowa) by saying, "It's so good to be here in Grand Rapids." (which of course, is in Michigan)
So for the record, the GOP's presidential candidate is unfamiliar with a world map ... and their Veep candidate is unfamiliar with a US map. This is so re-assuring.
