This is absolutely PRICELESS. Here is Chris Matthews poking fun and aiming ridicule towards Governor Palin, for her "alleged" lapse in Geographical Knowledge, yet he ends up actually perpetrating the very mistake which he so intends to blame on Palin.
Also, he failed in Properly Identifying the Nations of Africa. He claims that Africa has "57 Nations", when in Reality there are 53 African Nations.
I wonder, does he learn his Geography from the same book as Obama? Remember, it was Obama who claimed that the United States was composed of 57 States.

The show is called Hard Ball. No doubt they were looking for a man of his disposition
I think Bill O'Reilly is just as prone to head explosions! I still can't get over the video of his 'freak out'

Africa has 53 nations, now. But you realize that Africa is not stable. With generals overthrowing governments and warring nations and so forth it could be a toss up. Probably why he said "57 or so" since next week it could be 57, or 47.
