We heard the crazy moose-shootin’ lass from Alaska git on her high horse last night and try to knock Obama’s experience. Of course — when she herself has so little experience, and, when she and her running mate (at least that’s what it feels like now – is she running for VP or President?!) have NO PLAN to fix America, they go on the attack. But here’s the record, a side-by-side comparison of Obama and Palin and their experience:
B.A in political science from Columbia University, with a specialization in international relations
J.D. in Law from Hardvard, graduated magna cum laude; President of the Harvard Law Review
12 years (92-04) teaching constitutional law
7 years State Senator: sponsored more than 800 bills
4 years Senator for Illinois, population approx. 12.8 million people
Bachelor’s in journalism from University of Idaho
4 years Wasilla City Council (8000 people)
6 years Wasilla mayor (8000 people)
1 year “Ethics Commissioner of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission”
20 months governor of a state with 660,000 people (and a helluva lot of moose!)
Republican hypocrisy here is astounding. Not only does this conservative crazy yay-hoo have such little experience that I’m amazed she’s even governor, let alone on a major party ticket for VP, BUT, she’s a crazy conservative with NO FOREIGN POLICY OR ECONOMIC EXPERIENCE. I am really, really, really troubled by her nomination.
I am scared.
