If they want a debate on experence, i say that the Mccain camp should tell them to bring it.
Its interesting to note that we will have the first President since JFK who has not held an executive office. The conventional wisdom was that America didn't elect Senators to be president. Guess that maxim is out the window this time around.

We know she is proud of her county, her eldest son has been in the Army for nearly a year. A contrast to Michelle Obama, who only became proud of our country when it was apparent Barak was the Nominee. And i wonder if she is a member of a church whose pastor spews racist venom at evey turn. Or if she is friends with unrepentent marxist terrorists.....

The kids in the military angle of this electin is interesting too. No matter what, a Veep's kid will be in Iraq next year. Seems like that will put a big target on their respective unit.

I know...it's already happening. "Hey! She's less experienced then Obama!!"

Um...yeah, and she's going to hold the least powerful position in government...thanks.

Comedy from ELRushbo

RUSH: I want to go over this experience business another way. To say that the libs are saying that Sarah Palin doesn't have any experience. Neither does Obama. I want to illustrate that. Let's say that Obama and Sarah Palin got together. What are some of the questions that Sarah Palin would have for Senator Obama? I can't think of anything he could teach her. What, however, could she teach him? So, Senator Obama's first question would be: Can you show me the proper and safe way to handle and fire a gun? And are all NRA members as pretty as you are? Second question, Obama to Sarah Palin: Is hunting scary? And when you go fishing, do you bait your own hooks? I mean you could cut your finger doing that. Do you do it yourself? Next question, Obama to Sarah Palin: When you found out your baby would be born with Down syndrome, did you consider killing it before or after the due date? You mean you had the baby? You really had the baby? Question number four: What's it like to be a governor, Mrs. Palin? Do you worry that you're going to be held responsible for your decisions?

Question number five, Obama to Sarah Palin: Did you believe all that garbage that we've said about women at the Democrat convention? Are you worried that breaking the glass ceiling will just make a big mess? Question number six, from Obama to Sarah Palin: Is it fun or scary to ride a snowmobile? Don't you get cold? Question number seven, Obama to Sarah Palin: Is it scary to live so close to the Russians? Question number eight, Obama to Sarah Palin: Your son's in the army. Did you teach him how to shoot guns? Question number nine, Obama to Sarah Palin: Since you're a former sports broadcaster, if I bet on a football game, can I call you for advice? Question number ten, Obama to Sarah Palin: Come on, tell me the truth. Can we really drill for oil and not destroy the planet? Algore says we're destroying the planet, but your husband works in that business. Can we really drill for oil and not destroy the planet? Well, I don't know what Sarah Palin would ask Obama. She wouldn't want a sweetheart mortgage. That's the thing. Mr. Obama, could you tell me how to get a sweetheart mortgage or maybe get some crook friend to sell me, you know, a little strip of his land before market value? She wouldn't ask that question. Obama did. She might reference it in a debate if it comes up.

I'm not trying to attack her; I'm trying to analyze it as part of an election strategy, and I don't see how this helps the Republicans. It neutralizes their strongest argument that they had against their opponent, and that doesn't make sense. For anyone who has already decided, it won't change their minds; it won't make Obama's minions go over to McCain, and it won't drive McCain supporters away. But for the undecideds, it certainly won't make any points, at least on the face of it. Sure, Delaware is small, but Biden has been in the Senate for a long time, and has the connections in place. He might not have helped Obama, but he didn't drive away any undecideds, either. In general, the undecideds didn't react with, "Biden? Huh?"

But of course, what's done is done, and we'll see how it plays out.

Well, for a campaign based on change, Biden is one of the worst picks Obama could have made. He was tapped because he was a a white male and a Catholic, IMO.

Was the GOP VP candidate picked because she is a younger woman??? Sure. But if you read about her accomplishments so far, I like her attitude. Stands up to corruption, even within her own party and fights big oil.

I'm not attacking her; and I understand that everyone who is already for McCain will like this choice. What I'm saying is that it is a poor choice to sway the undecided voters who will decide this election. It is not a good choice as part of a strategy to win.

Attacking her, defending her, attacking Biden, defending Biden, all of that is irrelevant right now. The undecideds will make up their mind some time at the end of October, and the Republicans' most effective tool was hammering on Obama's inexperience... and now they can't use that tool effectively. They have handed its counter -weapon to their enemy. And that was a bad strategic move.

Maybe they have a different tool. But this campaign has been a strange reversal. The Democrats seem to be on their game, and the Republican machine that won so effectively in '00 and '08 seems to be slightly off. If they can convince me, I'll pull the "R" lever and not look back; they got me in '00. But this wasn't how to start. I wouldn't vote for Mary Ann Petrilla, the Luzerne County Commissioner, for VP, no matter how much integrity she has (and she has a lot; she is a very impressive woman at fighting corruption in government). She would be out of her league on the national level. As would most local politicians.
