Someone at MSNBC is having a tough time learning the states … again. Monday night it was “The Last Word” mixing up Virginia and North Carolina.

    North Carolina/Virginia
    Same/same
    What difference does it make? :/

    • GaryTheBrave

      Its all flyover country anyway. If it ain’t NYC it ain’t worth knowing. /sarc

      • DG

        And California. You forgot California.

      • http://www.freedomreconnection.com/ FreedomRecon

        Until it’s a Presidential election year…then they know EXACTLY where that swing state is.

        • GaryTheBrave

          They may not be able to spell it (Obama and “Oiho”) but, yeah,they know where it is located.

        “Its all flyover country anyway. If it ain’t NYC it ain’t worth knowing. /sarc”

        Apparently you have seen the map they use as reference for locations other than NYC

          It is interesting to see how much (or little) the New Yorker cost in the year of the Bicentennial. I remember how everyone was seriously concerned about the economy and how prices rose at double-digit rates. I recall seeing economists stating that the U.S. was going to have to scrap the Dollar for a new currency because the value of the Dollar had been reduced significantly.

          Today it is much worse than they could have imagined then.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            Yup. The good old days.

    • mdtljt

      Ahem…gianormous difference!! Yes, NC has RTP & its bedroom community Cary – Containment Area for Relocated Yankees – but that doesn’t hold a candle to NOVA…or even Charlottesville…trust me…

  • DG

    There are 57 states, people! It’s hard to keep track of them all!

        Is that near Maryware?

          Yep! We’re going right through it, next to Pennsyltucky.

  • DG

    MSNBC thinks all states look alike. Racists!

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Find the outline of Virginia on the internet?
    Done, by me, in well under 30 seconds.
    Yes MSNBC, there IS a Virginia.

    • DG

      Most progs today believe Virginia is the name of a Christian woman saving herself for marriage.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        For that, we can thank Billy Joel, “Only the Good Die Young”.

        I’m not sure that progs understand what virginity or marriage actually are.

          Virginity is before age 10 for liberals.

      You shouldn’t say that — they can find their asses fine. Where do you think they stick their heads??

  • DG

    Someone really needs to check up on the interns from time to time. Seriously.

      I thought they were both gulf states.

    If you stand on your head, North Carolina’s outline does look a lot like Virginia. Which may also explain why MSNBC show hosts and staff think the way they do….

  • Utopia Can Never be Achieved

    I suspect MSNBC was discussing the resignation of a Democrat state senator in Virginia who resigned on Monday. He has a daughter who is a judge in Virginia and there’s a law that a judge can’t be related to an elected official in the state. He chose to resign so his daughter could get the judgeship for a 6-year term instead of just a temporary time period – which had been applied due to the ethics conflict.

    Virginia still doesn’t have a signed budget from this last legislative session and will shut down at the end of June if one is not signed into place. The VA governor insists on expanding Medicaid in the state by 400,000 to the roles. He has tied this provision to the budget and is refusing to budge. Meanwhile, the state delegates have a GOP majority. With the resignation of the Democrat senator, the GOP has 20 members, and the Democrats have 19 members. This essentially ties the governor’s hands on the Medicaid expansion. There will be a special election to fill that senate seat and it’s likely to go to the GOP because the region where the seat is happens to be conservative as a majority.

    I hope this happens. The U.S. and Virginia have been slapped in the face with Liberal politics. This minor victory – of kicking the Medicaid expansion to the curb, would give me some faith that the U.S. hasn’t gone full-Lib at this point in time.

      Game Show Government, Vote for me, I’ll give you cash and prizes, is losing in Virginia, glad to hear it, tks for good news.

  • Charles Hargrave

    If this doesn’t wake Comcast up to the fact that MSNBC is full of idiots and lyers then nothing will,nobody watches that network because of the constant lies,so Obama should move out of the Whitehouse and live at the MSNBC studios where he can spew his brand of hatrid for America 24 hours a day.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Next they’ll talk about Indiana while showing a graphic of Kentucky, & while talking about Florida show the island of cuba.

    • Blake Waymire

      Florida, Cuba, at this point, what difference does it make?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Or the Asian island of Hawaii.

  • Chris Mears

    I didn’t realize that many people watch MSNBC

  • EllisWyatt

    They probably had Jay Bennish as their geography teacher.

  • HerodiousPeaskinner

    Give ’em a break. At least the two places are close and that’s good enough for MSNBC.

  • bullet2354

    hahahahahahahaha-

    As good as the MSNBC George Washington Battle Ground ‘Obama poll’ put up earlier this year =

    Unfavorable: 47%
    Unfavorable: 49%

    HAHAHA

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      Heh… 4% were changing the bong water and unavailable for an unfavorable opinion.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    WRONG!!! That is, in fact, South Virginia, one of Obama’s 7 extra states

    • unknown

      Given how northern Virginia seems to control the rest of the state, perhaps it should split in two.

    • bullet2354

      I have been to South Virginia – nice – warm – the people were nice too. 😉

  • arttie

    They did get south of the Mason-Dixon and in the South-east quadrant of the US. Close only counts in atom bombs, horseshoes and now msnbc graphics.

    • Dan13

      If they moved just one state south of NC they would be on the Gulf of Mexico.

  • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

    Come one guys, you know that all red states look alike.

  • bicentennialguy

    This is not the first time they’ve done this. How can anyone trust anything they say when they can’t even get maps correct? Meanwhile, I’m sure all the iPhone equipped 12-year-olds behind the scenes are looking at porn when they ought to be looking at maps.

  • Robert Smith

    I am so proud of my 6th grader! She saw this error before I did! (she is home schooled)

  • mommyoffive

    Not to be the one to point out the obvious, but I did get a chuckle out of one of the tweets pointing out the error.
    “Craig Peters @[email protected] – Virginia / Medicaid expansion – please correct your graphic showing a stethoscope draped over map of … North Carolina”

    That’s not a stethoscope, either. It’s a caduceus. If we’re going to point out the ineptness of someone, we should really be sure that we aren’t just as inept.

    • aint bee

      ineptitude (sorry)

      • mommyoffive

        LOL! Point taken! I don’t usually do this, because as noted by you, I am not perfect. Thank you!

    Wow! All six viewers caught the mistake…!

      Oh please! They only have 5 viewers😊

    north carolina, virginia, what difference does it make

  • Yeah Buddy

    It’s Caroginia, the 58th state!

  • rambler

    Well …. it might look more like Virginia turned upside down and backwards…..

    Wayne Clark tweeted:
    “Talking about healthcare in Virginia … but with a map of North Carolina. Teach your interns some geography.”

    On second thought, don’t bother. We can use the comic relief.

    All them redneck rubes south of the Mason-Dixon AND their states all look alike to enlightened MSNBC reporters….
