West Wing - Why Have Different Maps

Why explain why there are different types of maps, when this short piece from the West Wing does it so well?!

Using Google Earth and other interactive mapping technologies should fix most of the problems with trying to put a 3D world on a 2D surface. I just wish more teachers would use them and get rid of the collections of pull-down paper maps I still see in far too many classrooms.
