John McCain and his right-wing campaign have reached a new level of hypocrisy and falsehood. They took a person with zero experience and compared her to one of the most talented and intelligent new leaders in the country. They will have you believe that she is more experienced and more capable than Barack Obama. The fact is that there were many more women who were more talented and experienced than Sarah Palin. It is disrespectful to them that she was chosen as VP and they were not. Let’s look at the facts. The Governor of Alaska has a BS in Journalism from the University of Idaho. Barack Obama has a BA in Political Science (specializing in International Relations) from Columbia University and a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law, where he graduated magna cum laude. He was also the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. You can’t even begin to make the comparison based on education alone. I don’t know about you, but I want my President to be smarter than me! She is the governor of the biggest-sized state, but in terms of population, Alaska is number forty-seven. Is that your executive experience?
