Sarah Palin 'did not know Africa was a continent

    Sarah Palin spent "tens of thousands" more than the quoted $150,000 on clothes for the Republican campaign, met McCain aides in her hotel room dressed in nothing but a towel, and did not know Africa was a continent, according to new reports.

    Fox news has reported that Mrs Palin did not understand that Africa was a continent, not a country, and did not know what countries were in the North American Free Trade Agreement.

    In separate claims made in the latest issue of Newsweek magazine, the Republican vice presidential nominee was reported to have been told to buy three suits for the Republican convention, and to hire a stylist. Instead, she went on a spending spree in upmarket stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.

    Quoting unnamed sources within the McCain camp, the magazine alleges that most of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who "was shocked when he got the bill."

    An angry aide described the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast", and predicted that the truth would eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

    The magazine also claimed that Mrs Palin used low ranking staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards, and that up to $40,000 was spent on clothes for her husband Todd.

    A number of articles of clothing have been lost, the magazine states.

    The disclosures are made in "How He Did It, 2008", in Newsweek's Special Election Project, a behind-the-scenes account of the presidential election produced the day after the polls closed.

    The magazine also claims that at the GOP convention in St. Paul, when aides Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter went to her hotel room to brief her, Ms Palin walked into the room wearing only a towel, with another on her wet hair. She told them to chat to Todd, adding: "I'll be just a minute."

    Other election revelations include that on the night Hillary Clinton officially lost the Democratic nomination, she enjoyed a long and friendly phone conversation with McCain.

    "Clinton was actually on better terms with McCain than she was with Obama," reports the magazine. "Clinton and McCain had downed shots together on Senate junkets; they regarded each other as grizzled veterans of the political wars and shared a certain disdain for Obama as flashy and callow

    MY TAKE: Huyu mama Gov Palin hakuwa fit for the job.

    Nimeiona hiyo CNN nikabaki mdomo wazi. Yaani huyu McOld pamoja na kuwa sikutaka ashinde lakini kuna wanawake wengi ambao ni Republicans ambao wana knowledge kubwa ya Geography na foreign affairs, huyu mama alikuwa mtupu kabisa sijui McOld aliona nini hata kutaka kumpa nafasi kubwa kiasi hicho ambayo imemzidi kimo.

    I saw that Newsweek piece, kuna report pia kwammba ali schedule call na "Sarkozy" (the Canadian prankster radio DJs) bila kumtaarifu McCain.

    It is simply shocking that she was that close to being the second in command in an administration of a candidate so prone to dropping down like McCain.

    Lakini wanasema hata McCain hakuongea naye na kumjua sana, kwa kweli ingekuwa noma na jinsi mambo yalivyo ovyo in the US now!.

    Hata Bush aliambiwa hivyo hivyo lakini ametoa msaada mkubwa kwa Afrika kuliko hata Clinton ambaye alikuwa anaijua Afrika zaidi.

    Afrika inahitaji msaada wa vitendo siyo msaada wa maneno wakati watu wanaendelea kufa kwa njaa, malaria, ukimwi na udikteta uliotopea

    Ni kweli wamarekani wengi hawana knowledge ya mambo ya kawaida sana duniani. Kama wapiga kura wengi wa Marekani wangejua dunia isingekuwa ilivyo sasa. MImi nimekutana na wamarekani wengi wanaofikiri kuwa Spain ni jimbo la Mexico, waliowahi kuniambia Tanzania ni Tazmania na kama Sarah Palin wanaoujua kuwa Afrika ni nchi, na rais wa Afrika ni Nelson Mandela. Lakini kusema McCain ameshindwa kwa sababu ya poor knowledge ya Sarah Palin si kweli, kuna factors nyingi za kushindwa kwa McCain. Palin ni factor ndogo sana.

    Afrika inahitaji kujisaidia yenyewe...!!! Huu upuuzi wa kusema tusubiri tusaidiwe na nchi tajiri ndio unatudumaza.
