Is Africa a Country or a Continent?

A video clip from Fox News that's making the rounds quotes anonymous sources in the McCain campaign on Sarah Palin's "knowlegeability." [sic]   Apparently she had some controversial geographical opinions.  One of the things the anonymous campaign staffers cited is that Palin believed that Africa is a country.  Certainly people of good will can disagree on an issue like that.

I'm throwing the question out to the Gather membership at large.  Is Africa a country or a continent?  I hate to point this out but I think I need to before some spoil sport does.  Australia is both a country and a continent, simultaneously, concurrently, and at the same time.  I know, that's pretty deep. 

So, my friends, what do you think?  http://media-files.gather.com/images/d67/d290/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
