Analysis: Palin's age, inexperience rival Obama'sWe can't, of course, argue about the age. Though this is such vital importance in the McCain/Palin ticket. I am not sure what odds Jimmy the Greek is giving in Vegas for McCain surviving even four years if he should happen to win (expect a senior moment on election night), but the contention that Palin's inexperience, which is as vast as the wilderness she oversees, is in someway comparable to that of Obama's is just so laughable as to bring tears to the palpebral fissures. Bitter tears, to be sure. But tears none the less.
Where does our media get its writers/reporters? The idea that a man as educated and experienced as Barack Obama is even on the same ballfield as this unknown entitiy from Alaska (the 21st Century Tammany Hall, so it seems) occurred to someone. So, there it appears on Yahoo. Starts a meme. Gets debated by the talking heads. Goes skyward. Sweet weeping Jesus on the cross, as Billmon quotes Pappy O'Daniel from "O Brother Where Art Thou?" whats this land come to.
But Obama is a black man. (Technically only half, but it shows you were we are with race that he is always considered black.) I can't finish this trace. I will have to return to it.
