The Obamunist lamestream media eagerly helped its Leftist masters ridicule Sarah Palin for pointing out a fact of geography when she correctly mentioned that the borders of Alaska and Russia are only a few miles apart.
But the same sycophantic media is quick to cover up whenever Obama demonstrates that he's not the brightest tube in the fixture, as ESPN did recently:
The genius-in-chief who thinks that Americans invented the automobile, that Austrian is a language and that he had been in 57 states (with one to go!) can't spell the name of Syracuse University. His excuse must be that most Syracuse athletic teams compete in the Big East conference, not the Ivy League, with which he is allegedly more familiar. We would bet the ranch that Sarah Palin, even with her humble degree from Idaho, knows how to spell "Syracuse."
