Sarah Palin tells folks in Cedar Rapids, Iowa that she is glad to be in Grand Rapids, Michigan...DOH!

Palin stumbled out of the gate on arriving in Cedar Rapids. The Alaska governor told the audience that she was thrilled to be in “Grand Rapids,” the Michigan city where the campaign had just overnighted.
Heh. I've love to hear the crowd after she said that. Reminds me of that Southwest Airlines commercial where the band comes out and says "Hello Detroit!" and he's in Cleveland and the tag line is "Want to get away?".
She not only messed up the city name, she also said she was proud of the hockey team the Iowa Chops. She must not have done her homework, b/c the Chops are from Des Moines. Cedar Rapids has it's own hockey team.....the Ruff Ryders. Oops!
