How Sarah Palin Doesn’t Begin to Compare to Barack Obama

Recently, I had to chime in on a comment made to Sam’s blog, concerning Sarah Palin.  The commenter was still harboring some misconceptions about Sarah Palin being “more qualified than Obama.”  He said, “Tell me what he has done, and show me.”

Well, I did just that, and what I learned in the process really crystallized my wonder at how the hell she got on the ticket.  Here’s the comparison:

While Sarah Palin was bouncing among five colleges, and preparing for the Miss Alaska Beauty Contest, Barack Obama was finishing his BA in political science with an emphasis on international relations at Columbia, currently the #8 school in the country.

At the age of 23, he’d already seen more of the world than Palin has seen at 44. In fact, just last month, he was a guest speaker in more foreign countries (7) than Sarah Palin has even visited (4, including Canada and Mexico).  Heck, give her credit for just having stared across the Bering Strait at Russia, bringing her total to 5, and she’s still less traveled.

Sarah Palin: Dance 10, Looks 3

If you haven’t read the New York Times today, you’re missing a humdinger.

She’s the big mess we all knew she was.

3rd place in beauty, in a beauty contest, but Miss Congeniality.
Least qualified in governing, in a government contest, but Miss Congeniality.
Hmmm.

Jay Smooth of illdoctrine.com posted this response to the RNC, which, in contrast to the inspiring, positive DNC, was a hypernationalist, fearmongering pep rally.  So what else is new?  Jay Smooth and Ill Doctrine.  I can’t get enough of it.  Check it out.

Sarah Palin and the McCain / McMILF 2008 Ticket

It’s official.  John McCain’s taste in beautiful women is impeccable.

John McCain has chosen MILF Sarah Palin to share the GOP ticket.

Who?

A neo-con, short-term governor of Alaska, who I think appeared in ZZ Top’s “Legs” video in the 80s.  I didn’t think it made sense until I dug in about the voting records of other possible Rep women: the incredibly capable Elizabeth Dole would seem a good, seasoned choice, but being just as old as McCain, might not instill us with much confidence.  Lisa Murkowski, also GOP and Alaskan, has served on committees for energy, parks, education, and foreign relations and is candid about her eagerness to drill for oil, but she’s too moderate on abortion.  Ditto Kay Hutchison on abortion.  Ditto Susan Collins on abortion.  Olympia Snowe reaches across the aisle too much, working with Dems to minimize Bush’s tax cuts, and disagreeing here and there about Iraq.  Elizabeth Joyce is too busy answering hate mail and being courted for her vote.  So that leaves right-wing MILF, Sarah Palin.

I’m not sure when the GOP became the Dukes of Hazzard, but nonetheless, here’s the nutshell read on the schizophrenic nature of this NRA gun-toting beauty queen and VP candidate. Continue reading ‘Sarah Palin and the McCain / McMILF 2008 Ticket’
