This is priceless. CNN.com has a commentary by Paul Begala on John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin for his running mate. He says in part:
Palin a first-term governor of a state with more reindeer than people, will have to put on a few pounds just to be a lightweight. Her personal story is impressive: former fisherman, mother of five. But that hardly qualifies her to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
What about Obama? He is completely unqualified to be president, but we’re supposed to ignore that. Let’s face it, neither Obama nor Palin have national or international political experience.
But Palin has actually accomplished things in her political career, unlike Obama who couldn’t even be bothered to vote yes or no on a couple hundred bills (opting instead to vote “present” which gets him out of having to decide).
So yes, Palin may lack political experience. But she has no less experience than Obama. And she’s actually made big changes in Alaska during her tenure there. What had Obama accomplished? We’re still waiting for his supporters to name even one thing.
