7. The story itself wasn't a hoax, otherwise Sarah would not have confirmed (and reinforced!) it.


"If there are allegations based on questions or comments I made in debate prep about NAFTA, about the continent versus the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context. And that's cruel, it's mean-spirited, it's immature, it's unprofessional and those guys are jerks if they came away with it taking things out of context, then tried to spread something on national news. It's not fair, it's not right," Palin said.

That's a direct quote from Sarah Palin herself, confirming right there that she didn't know during debate prep that Africa is not a country - and also that she hadn't bothered to educate herself since the story came out.
