The Iraq And The Maps

I know I'm late to the party, a week of vacation will do that to you, but did you catch the brilliance bestowed upon us by Miss Teen South Carolina? During the Q&A at the Miss Teen USA pageant, she was asked about why many people can't locate their own country on a world map. The quote is below, but here’s a link to the video.

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

This, friends, was brutal. Not even AC Slater could save her.

People don't have maps. I guess that makes sense. But how South Africa figures into the equation, I'm still unsure. And I'm not sure the Asian countries need our help, but I will go to the grave advocating our need to help the Iraq.
