The introduction of Sarah Palin has instigated an angry symphony of insults directed towards the veep pick. The main thrust of all the coverage is her “inexperience.” Now mind you, the news media never discussed the “inexperience” of their friend and savior Barack Obama.
Here’s just the facts.
Barack Obama entered the Senate in January 2005 and announced his presidential campaign in February 2007. That’s 25 months.
Sarah Palin took office as Governor of Alaska on December 4, 2006. She was nominated for the Vice Presidency on August 29th 2008. That’s 20 months.
We’re talking about five months difference in a major office here. And Palin has executive experience while Obama sat in the Senate as 1 of 100. The hypocrisy of the mainstream media never ceases to amaze me.
