Americans and Geography don't go well together

And remember the Miss Teen USA 2007?  

During the final question, Miss South Carolina was asked why she thought 1/5 of Americans are unable to locate the United States on a world map. Her response was:
"I personally believe that, U.S. Americans are unable to do so, because some… people out there in our nation that don’t have maps, and I believe that our education, like such as in South Africa and the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should… our education over here in the U.S., should help the U.S., er, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future.., for our children... "
Here's the clip.. old but funny :)

Belated Happy Thanksgiving to the Americans!
