Senator, can you draw your state?

Did you know that this week is “Geography Awareness Week?” To celebrate this occasion, National Geographic asked the 100 US senators to draw an outline of their home state from memory on a square approximately the size of a cocktail napkin and note at least three important locations or landmarks in their state.

It’s almost not fair that Senator Al Franken of Minnesota is included in this survey. As I previously mentioned here, we know Sen. Franken is an overachiever in this department, as he’s demonstrated that not only can he accurately draw his homestate but a complete map of the United States as well. Anyway, check out his and a few other senators’ efforts (including my home state!) after the jump. View rest of the drawings here.
