Barack & Michelle; a big oops!

Obama, geographically challenged:

Barack appeared on a screen at the end and didn't seem to know where he was. He said he was in St. Louis, when in fact he's here in Kansas City. Oh well, at least he got the state right.  Oops!

and what about Michelle tonight?

Michelle talks about leaving a powerful job for a "career in public service" — her current job as a $300k per year director of community relations for a hospital? That's public service? She works for a private entity. How is that public service?  oops!


UPDATE: Dan, a reader emailed me this:

Am i the only who spotted this?
Michelle said gafffe: "And you know, what struck me when I first met
Barack was that even though he had this funny name, even though he'd
grown up all the way across the continent ...

Hawaii is not all the way across the continent from Chicago, it is an
island OFF the continent......!!!! minor gaffe. maybe she needs
geography lesson?
