The Huffington Post article initially referred to the “island country” of Hawaii. Insert your choice of birther joke here.

  • adnnews1

    Hmmm. I am not a birther, but….

  • Chuck Finley Cracka®

    Sounds like no one noticed. Does that mean no one reads that HuffPro crap?

  • Laurie Davis

    Must have gone to the same school as prez…where ther are 58’states in the country.

    • WhoMeToo

      59… if you take zer0’s word for it. ~_^

      • Clete Torres

        57, wasn’t it?

        • http://xirtamatrix.com yourmamatoo

          With one more to go. 😳

        • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

          60, he’d already been to 57 except they wouldn’t let him in Alaska or Hawaii, and he had one more to go.

            Well, as long as they made an effort………where’s that box of trophies at?…….

  • World B. Free

    And they think Sarah Palin is stupid….

    • alanstorm

      Yep. If you pay attention, you’ll notice that while they CLAIM to be smarter than those Neanderthal conservatives, everything they say and do proclaims the opposite.

      • porkchop6209

        Don’t you dare interject facts into the confusion….

    Geez, what a bunch of morons.

    Everybody knows Hawaii is the 57th state.

    • rambler

      And just a train ride away on the intercontinental railway.

        And it could tip over, or wait…that’s Guam

            that is racisss…

            Thank you, thank you very much. We’ll be here on Thursdays.

        • ked5

          be nice to him. he unseated Cynthia mckinny.

          • Clete Torres

            What does that say about the voters in GA?

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            Please Clete. Let’s keep the scope of that comment down to the district in Atlanta that gets to vote for Cynthia/Hank versus the rest of Georgia.

            P.S. No, I can not translate the above into Austrian.

          • Clete Torres

            That is what I meant, pard. No disrespect intended toward the rest of the Peach State.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            I know, I just had to say so… 😉

          • Clete Torres

            Nice to be amongst friends.

          • porkchop6209

            He’d best be more worried about that volcano in Georgia erupting.

          • ked5

            well – I believe that district is made up of people who look like Obama’s sons (if he had any) or daughters.

          • bluewaternavy

            Lost one jackass, and gained another.

          • ked5

            he may be an idiot – but he’s still an improvement over mckinny. she’s a whackjob. and a dangerous one at that. of the very red (in the eastern European sense) variety.

          • porkchop6209

            Well, if everyone would just give her…..Oh look…..a squirrel!

          • bluewaternavy

            Good point. At least he’s good for entertainment purposes.

        • bluewaternavy

          Love the Admirals answer. Wonder what he was thinking about questioner 😉

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “Love the Admirals answer. Wonder what he was thinking about questioner ;-)”

            Probably something along the lines of:

            What dumb %#$!^@^ elected this !@#%#$%@$% to public office, and why in the @#$# H3!! does this stupidity even merit an answer? Oh yeah, he’s a Congressman and this Q&A is on the record.

            Even so, I’d love to float test this Congressman in the North Pacific.

          • porkchop6209

            Dive like a swan, float like a rock.

          • bluewaternavy

            YEP! and that float test would be classified as UNSAT!
            (no doubt you and I have done numerous floatability tests!)

          • Clete Torres

            Wonder what he was thinking about questioner

            “Release the Kracken!”

        • porkchop6209

          If they put some FlexSeal on it, it’ll be ok.

        • rssllue

          I just wonder how many engineers did he consult before asking such a concise and informed question? I need to see his expense report.

          • bluewaternavy

            Actually I’m an engineer, and my opinion is he needs to see a shrink 😉

        • gekkobear

          Well at least Sheila Jackson Lee can check if our Rover has gotten pictures of our flag on Mars… you know, the one Neal Armstrong planted.

          Some districts are clearly a lost cause if this is who they believe can represent their views and wishes appropriately.

          Because I suspect those districts may in fact be correct.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    Gee, I wonder, did Huffington Post run any articles denigrating Sarah Palin’s intelligence?

    • Calcat36

      You mean correcting their false denigration of Palin, right?

      • porkchop6209

        Well, Russia is right next door.

    • porkchop6209

      No! Never!

  • Legal Immigrant in TX

    So, we’re now down to 56 States?

    • IfYouHaveToAsk

      Dang it, when did Hawaii secede from the Union?

      • bluewaternavy

        When Obama made Hawaiians speak Austrian .

        • porkchop6209

          I hate it when that happens.

  • Peakview

    This wasn’t a mistake as much as the author’s wish intruding on actual life. Lefties – always living in a dream world where their “good thoughts” are realities to them.

  • Discochip

    So what, Obama said Hawaii is in Asia, and he doesn’t know the location of the Gulf of Mexico, nor does he know what a Corpse-man is, and Hank Johnson thinks Guam will tip over if too many Marines are stationed there, and Sheila Jackson lee Johnson Lee Jackson Johnson thinks Neil Armstrong planted an American flag on Mars. Folks, they are elitist Liberals, they want you to believe they are the smartest people in the room, and as long as low information voters see a ‘D’ after their name, well then they’ve been told by the Liberal media that these people are geniuses, just vote for them.

    And by the way, if Obama is a genius, lets see his school records. Tell us what his IQ is. Me, I’m from Missouri.

    • Matt

      If SJL is an elitist, I’m the Pope.

    • SirIzakNuton

      “Sheila Jackson lee Johnson Lee Jackson Johnson” LOL!

    • porkchop6209

      Well, you can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay, or you can call me RJJ, but you don’t have to call me Ray Johnson. Junior!

  • Matt

    Not a real state.

    • plaingolf

      Yes it is! It’s a welfare state.

    • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

      It was an honest mistake for Huffpo to make- Hawaii wasn’t one of the original 57 states/

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Well, not NOW it isn’t, but it WAS, at one time.

    See, the Lefties have used that fact to rail against the whole Manifest Destiny/Imperialism they see as having been so destructive in the 19th Century.

    Somebody forgot their usual Blame-America history to have made that error.

    • porkchop6209

      It was Bush’s fault

  • Doc Farmer ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    My God, Greg Gutfeld was right!

    • WhoMeToo

      Yes. Yes he was.

    • porkchop6209

      Greg rocks, so does Kimberly and that Tantaros gal.

  • Bklynnygirl

    According to the “birthers” at the Huff Post, Obama is not an American citizen.

    GEEZ! Everyone knows it is a Chinese state in Asia! Ask Obama.

    • Matt

      Before long, the 48 states will be a part of China.

      • Calcat36

        Because of the debt ozero has gotten the US into. Here is your ME-ssiah who added more debt than every single president COMBINED on that credit card backed by china, idiot:

          Um, ok. What’s up with the “your ME-ssiah” and the “idiot”?

          • Calcat36

            Stick to the point presented. Defend your man, the ME-ssiah and the idiot. You are the useful idiot that follows the one you have been waiting for.

  • cmerlo1

    Wow, so the birthers are right. At least as far as HuffPo was concerned.

  • ObamaFail

    And libs use HuffPo as a means to show “the facts.” Hell, they voted for a man they call the smartest man to ever occupy the White House, a man who is so stupid he thinks there is 57 states and thinks adding the national debt will eventually cut it in half.

    • TexSizzle

      No. He thinks he *visited* 57 and did not visit 3.

  • Danceswithdachshunds

    I thought the Japanese bought it?

    • porkchop6209

      Well, they liked it, before they didn’t like it, so they were for invading it, before they were against it.

  • http://xirtamatrix.com yourmamatoo

    Well , Obama thought Africa was a Country.
    Low Infos at their finest.

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      “Well , Obama thought Africa was a Country. “

      County, country, continent… Mehhh, like choom, they all begin with a C.

      Horseshoes, hand grenades, Nork-PRC supplied Iranian ICBMs… Close enough for guvment werk.

    • gary4205

      Obama has called EUROPE a country TWICE. Once in 2009, and again in 2013! Once is an innocent slip of the tongue, twice means you’re a certified moron!

      • http://xirtamatrix.com yourmamatoo

        And 57 states.
        The Constitution was written 20 centuries ago.
        Misspelled Syracuse on live TV.
        See what an Affirmative Action Potus gets ya?
        That’s what low Infos voted for. And some still make excuses for him.
        Too funny.😂

    Liberals be so smart. What was hawaii? 57th, 58th state? Bet Obama knows. After all he was “born” there.
