Dem. Sen. Mary Landrieu: South Dakota borders Canada
Apparently, you don’t need to know much about geography to be a U.S. Senator.
On Thursday, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., declared that South Dakota borders Canada during a discussion on a border fence.
“A smart fence which is what Senator McCain and I want to build – since he’s from Arizona, I think he knows more about this than the Senator from South Dakota, who only has a border with Canada that is quite different,” she said.
As you can clearly see, South Dakota does not border Canada — unless we’ve given North Dakota to our northern neighbor, and with this administration, anything’s possible.
The New York Daily News reported:
She was trying to express her opposition to Thune’s proposal about constructing a 350-mile double layered fence along the Mexico border, saying that she places more trust in the opinion of Arizona Sen. John McCain — because McCain’s state borders Mexico.
Here’s the really scary part – she chairs the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee.
No wonder we’re in the shape we’re in.
