Can we have a Fifth Grader please?

Time was, back in the day, when we all studied geography in elementary school. Remember those classes? We studied the states and their products and so forth. We had to memorize all 50 states and their capitols. Including tests.
So I was extremely surprised at then candidate Obama referring to 57 states. What’s that- you don’t remember that? Let me refresh your memory.

Well today I find another gaffetastic geography error- brought to us by the Obama 2012 campaign.
OOPS! White House Fails Basic Geography

Looks like someone in the White House press office needs to brush up on his or her U.S. geography.

Included in the press credentials packages were maps. Maps with a problem.

Wyoming is highlighted, not Colorado. To be fair, both states are rectangular, nearly identical in size, and stacked next to each other. But we doubt our third grade teachers would buy that!

The reporter says third grade- I will be generous and say fifth grade.

Here is a study guide for the White House- shall I send them the link?
