Democrat Senator Thinks South Dakota is a Border State

Sen. Mary Landrieu doesn't know much about geography. In a rant in the Senate today, she ripped Sen. John Thune of South Dakota for wanting to complete the border fence.

“We need to build a smart fence,” she continued. “And a fence is not just a physical structure which could be built out of a variety of different materials with or without barbed wire on the top. A smart fence which is what Sen. 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 doesn’t have a border with Mexico, but only Canada and that is quite different.

If South Dakota bordered Canada, that would be "quite different" -- for North Dakota.


Note for Sen. Landrieu: Map is not exact to scale, and Alaska and Hawaii aren't really located next to each other in space southwest of Texas.
