In a Palinesque display of geographic knowledge, Mitt Romney asserted yesterday that Syria provided Iran access to the sea. This overlooks the fact that the two countries do not share a border and that Iran has its own coastline along with a World War I caliber navy conducive to Romneyesque ship counting. This evidently is not the first time Romney has uttered this geographic whopper. Iran can access the Mediterranean Sea via the Suez canal in any case. The argument about Iran getting bases in Syria (allegedly the intent of the quote) can be made without resorting to alternative cartography.
