Ahem, America, Alaska is close to two countries

Fox News (see here): "[T]he other thing about her, she does know about international relations because she is right up there in Alaska right next door to Russia."

The same point was made by Cindy McCain, and now other commentators have repeated what must be becoming a Republican talking-point (here).

Attention, Americans. There are two countries up near Alaska (see the map above). And while Canada didn't make the Axis of Evil, we want to point out that Canada is part of the Axis of Nations That Are Actually Quite Nice But Secretly Have Nasty Thoughts About America.
