Obama thinks there are 57 states in the US

Obama recently told people:

From Rush Limbaugh:
You are aware, probably, that Barack Obama lost his bearings recently and said that he was going to campaign in all 57 states. You heard this? And everybody chalked it up to, "Well, he's tired." You know, this is a Dan Quayle moment. I mean, Dan Quayle goes out there and misspells potato, and we still get jokes about it. Barack Obama says he's gonna go out and campaign in 57 states, he was just tired, you know, it's been such a long campaign, he's been so many places, he probably thinks there are 57 states. Well, I have here a printout from a website called the International Humanist and Ethical Union. And here is how the second paragraph of an article on that website begins. "Every year from 1999 to 2005 the organization of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states presented a resolution to the United Nations commission on human rights called combating --" yes, H.R., get ready for the phone calls up there.

Now you can tell from this... he's thinking... he might've mixed up the 7 with the 7 remaining primaries.... but Limbaugh is right. Dan Quayle "mispells" potato and he's ridiculed for the rest of his life, but Obama will definitely get a pass.

I really don't understand how people can vote for this man - or for Hilary. Each one has dealbreakers which a sane person would see and say... "Whoa." But, that goes for McCain as well! None of the three presidential candidates is worthy of the post, and whoever gets it is going to be a disaster... but I think Obama will be worst of the lot.
