Egypt and the Panama Canal

It was refreshing to hear MSNBC television show host Chris Matthews comment on the current uprising in the streets of Cairo and explain this significance of Egypt and "of course, the Panama Canal". I wish more television hosts were as astute and knowledgeable as Chris Matthews is about geography. Why, in my life I have even heard some morons who think that the Panama Canal is located in the country of Panama. These idiots think that Panama is located in some part of the world called Central America; how stupid can you get? I'm glad Chris Matthews set these "dumb dumbs" straight on the correct location of the Northern African canal, "the Panama Canal."

We need television hosts to set us straight along with liberal politicians such as President Barak Obama and New York Senator Charles (Chuck U) Schumer as so many people these days ARE so uninformed about even the seemingly most basic facts about modern life. For example,when running of President, candidate Barak Obama said that he had visited "57 states". Some ignorant Americans don't even know that there are 57 states in the United States of America. Senator Schumer recently commented about the three branches of government when he cited "the Senate, the House of Representatives, and the Presidency". There again some people don't even know this! We are fortunate as a nation to have such smart and wise political leadership who takes the time to educate the "unwashed masses" to these basic facts.

Yes, we as a country are blessed that "the best and the brightest" seem to gravitate towards political office and television so that they can inform and enlighten us with their superior intellect and knowledge.
