Next Attack: Sarah Palin's Education

For the next 2 months, as certain as the sun will rise in the east, so will there be another attack on Sarah Palin. Today we read this gem about her post-secondary education. Interesting, but irrelevant.

Any reasonable person would think that Sarah Palin in 2008 is a bright and well spoken person. They might not agree with her political views but trying to slam her intelligence and what she has accomplished in her life is nothing short of sour grapes.

What some Democrat pundits don't seem to realize is that so-called "fact pieces" don't have the effect on Moderates and Republicans that they do on hard core Democrats. Rather than diminishing Palin, they make people more sympathetic to her.

And anyone with an education who belittles someone with less education solely makes the attacker look like an insecure asshole. I meet them all the time here in Vancouver.

However you desperate Republicans want to justify Sarah Palin as a good VP pick, the fact remains that she clearly is not "President Material" and everyone knows that.

This election is in the bag for Democrats.

John McCain says that he'd rather lose and election than the war. Then why would he put his own self interests (choosing Sarah Palin as a strategy to win as you even indicate in your message--'everyone knows that it looks bad for more educated to attack less educated") over what is best for the country. There were many other men and women FAR more qualified in terms of education and experience at his fingertips.

Bitterness will get you ... nowhere!

Btw could you please direct me to the "Republican" office in Vancouver, BC? I'd be most curious to know where it is.
