Sarah Palin didn’t know that Africa was a continent?

Geez, it’s getting ugly. When FOX News reports this about Palin, you know she was bad:

Of course, it’s possible, even likely, that McCain campaign staffers are trying to make Palin the scapegoat for the failure of their candidate and them, but there’s abundant other evidence that Palin was pretty ignorant about a great many things–far too ignorant to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Regardless of whether this report is true or not, that makes it easy for the knives to come out, now that the election’s been lost.
