Beware the mainstream media: Now that John McCain has chosen Sarah Palin (it's pronounced "pah-lin," not "pay-lin," by the way) as his veep candidate, watch how the MSM will make a huge deal out of her "minimal" experience. This, even though she is the #2 pick of the ticket, while The Messiah -- with even LESS managerial experience than Palin -- is the #1 spot on the other ticket. And it's already begun:
[CNN's JOHN] ROBERTS:She's only been in office for a couple of years now, which really raises the experience issue here... Now, of course, Republicans have been raising the experience issue about Senator Obama, experience not quite so important when you're talking about a vice president, except in the case that John McCain today turned 72 years old. And one of the prerequisites, we'd like to believe are prerequisites, for picking a vice presidential running mate are a person who can step into the office at a moment's notice and not miss a beat, a person who is prepared to be President of the United States. Now, she is a manager. She is the governor of a state. She does have limited experience, though. She's also been the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. And for a time she was the ethics chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. But that does not add up to broad experience, particularly the type of broad experience that you think should launch you to the national level... and maybe the fact that he has the depth of political experience would take away some of those questions about her experience. Again, though, with the caveat that you want to have a vice president who can step right into the job.
As opposed to having a president already in the job, as would be the case with Barack Obama, right John?
