American West press pass

White House staff needs geography lessons

American West press passPresident Obama was in Denver today as part of a three-state western tour with stops in Colorado, California, and Washington. All nicely displayed in a map on a blue press pass, with the relevant states highlighted in white. Except, instead of Colorado, the staff highlighted Wyoming. The White House, of course, is not the only well-known entity to make this grade-school level geography mistake.

For those still wondering, Colorado is the southeastern-most state on this map.
