The Wisdom of Laura Bush, and Other Observations!
1. Leave it to Laura Bush to point out the biggest advantage of having Sarah Palin on the Republican ticket. If Palin suddenly has to succeed John McCain as President, Ahmadinejad and Putin would have to be really, really careful not to be perceived as sexist!
OK, that’s not exactly what she said, as she warned the Democrats to be careful of displaying sexism toward Palin. I agree, however. I think it would be terribly sexist if Palin were to be treated worse by the Democrats than a man like John Kerry was by the Republicans!
2. For those who keep trying to argue that Sarah Palin’s leadership experience is equivalent to that of Barack Obama, let’s go to the tale of the tape, shall we?
In the blue corner, we have Obama, who rose from community organizer to the Illinois State Senate to the U.S. Senate, and built the broadest, most effective, national presidential campaign in the history of American politics.
And in the red corner, we have Palin, who supports home schooling and abstinence-only sex education, and has a seventeen-year-old pregnant daughter.
3. The GOP website has a clock that is designed to count the time between gaffes made by Joe Biden. It currently sits at two days, two hours and ten minutes. At this point, there is a pretty good chance that a “John McCain VP Selection Gaffe Clock” would have to be reset before the Biden clock!
