It may not be enough for Sarah Palin to get a round of introductions at the UN. It's probably time for Senator Straight Talk to get a remedial session in "Countries and Their Leaders" as well.
To recap, John McCain knew the leader of Georgia was Mikheil Saakashvili. You could be snarky and say that's only because he had a lobbyist for Georgia at his elbow. Now, if only Spain would hire some lobbyists to get McCain's attention he'd know who their leader was.
