Govenor Palin's Experience vs. Obama's Experience (or Lack Thereof)
Ed Morrissey, writing over at Hot Air does a great job pointing out some of the flaws in Obama's argument that Governor Palin's experience is inconsequential.
What more do you need, than this picture of her with a caribou she shot. How hot is that? Wouldn't you rather have a VP like that, than some suit from Washington?
I'm sure by now that you have seen the interview clips of Obama pointing out how Governor Palin was the mayor of a town with only a handful of employees. Two things have apparently not occured to Senator Obama...
First, she's no longer the mayor of a small town. She is now a governor, the chief executive, of a state with the per capita GDP greater than that of the ENTIRE COUNTRY of Germany.
Second, why is he comparing HIS experience to the VP CANDIDATE? I mean, granted, her resume is more impressive than a guy who usually just votes "present" on tough issues--when he is in Washington at all, but come on, he seems to be spending an inordinate amount of time trying to downplay the candidate for an office we will all forget about unless McCain dies of old age while in office.
And all of this from a guy promising "change" while picking a Washington fixture like Biden for his VP. Its too aparent to me that his side will be business as usual in D.C.
