How Many?

I'm guessing here that Columbia and Harvard do not have geography departments.

What really frosts me is if this knucklehead reads that some terrorist blew up a wedding reception in Peoria, would he even know where it is? And the dims mocked Dan Quail over "potato."
"Potatogate" went beyond late-night punchlines. It was the perfect opportunity for politicians to laugh and point. Bill Clinton and Al Gore turned that hay into political gold, and even flew Figueroa in to the Democratic National Convention to deliver the Pledge of Allegiance.
He became known as The Potato Kid throughout the United States. In his grandparents' home country of Puerto Rico, he was known as "El rey de la papa" (The Potato King). He marched in Trenton's Puerto Rican Day Parade.
What is William Figueroa doing these days? In August of 2004, New York Times reporter Mark Fass caught up with him to ask a few questions. It turns out that the boy who would be king was a high-school dropout with a child of his own by the age of 16. By 24, he'd had 3 kids and was working at Wal-Mart."
Ya think the media will paint Obama with the same brush?
