Miss South Carolina: Take Syntax, by Jove!

Here is Miss South Carolina full "answer."

“I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, um, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as, uh, South Africa and, uh, the Iraq and everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uh, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future.”

I have parsed many a sentence in my short life but, I have to say, I have yet to see a concoction SUCH AS this one. What synaptic connections are responsible for such a phenomenon?

Mother Language: we all apologize.

And here's Jimmy Kimmel's parsing of Miss Carolina's 'sentence.'

Thanks, Jimmy!
