Via The Carpetbagger Report, we learn that McCain confused Somalia with Sudan in a discussion with reporters several days ago. This was probably him misspeaking, but he’s been doing that a lot lately and it isn’t an encouraging sign.
This report got me thinking, though: how well do I know African countries? A quick Google search on ‘africa countries quiz‘ brought me immediately to this interactive applet which quizzes you on the names of various African countries.
I didn’t do very well. The first time through, I got a 65 out of 165. The second time, i got 84. Only a few more times through and I’ll know them all, I’m sure!
I was able to distinguish between Somalia and Sudan, though.
