LOL @ 0:59 The guy behind the laptop looks like he's playing the piano background music.

@trickroom: That was supposed to be there. Y'know. Because he can't draw Alaska to scale due to not enough paper and what not. Same with Hawaii.
(I still sometimes wonder if I just respond to trolls)

Actually, a more accurate title would be: "Wannabe Senator Al Franken draws an approximate map of the U.S."

Yes, impressive, more than most can do. But this does not take 'Genius', or even 'intelligence'. All it takes is practice.

It doesn't take genius to be able to replicate a map, drawing or artwork.

This is autistic, savant Stephen Wiltshire drawing, from memory, an extremely accurate rendition of the Tokyo skyline:

Everyone is asking "how is this genius? I already know this!" The point is, could you draw the EXACT SHAPES?! Not just KNOWING each state, but WHERE they are AND detailed SHAPES of each state AND have the final result come out LOOKING like a map of the US! He even had the sizes right for the scale of his map. Just KNOWING the states is nothing, but drawing a map like that FREE HAND? And in proportion? With detail? That IS pretty smart!

Wanna bet most people on the street can't even NAME TEN states, let alone draw 50?

How is this qualification of being a genius? I could do this in third grade + all the capitals. If you vote for someone who can't name every state in the country, then you are even more idiotic than they are.

"Raise your hand if you think presidential candidates should be able to do the same thing."

First they have to know there are 50 states not 59.
In case you forgot

One of my history professors did this a couple weeks ago. He didn't do all the states, but they were just as accurate.

Something along those lines.
