Geography and work-life balance

As Republicans get their knickers in a twist once more over Barack Obama and his family returning to his roots for a winter break, I think I can finally offer some carbon dating as how far out of touch Obama's detractors actually are:

1959.

Yep, they have no clue that Hawaii is actually a state and has been for more than 50 years.

So why haven't we had the same uproar over Sarah Palin, whose home state celebrates its 51st birthday on Sunday? After all, each state has been the setting for a TV series (Hawaii 5-0 and Northern Exposure), a sure sign of American roots.

And while we're at it, has anyone seen her birth certificate? After all, are we sure she is from this planet?

Happy New Year!
