Governor Palin

At the risk of being overly partisan, I am thrilled that Senator McCain picked Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. I'm less than thrilled by McCain generally, but choosing a conservative mother of five (including one Down's child) who loves Jesus and has a record of accomplishment is a winner in my book. That she happens to be a woman who can counter the whole "elect us for history's sake" business coming from the other side of the aisle is just gravy.

Accomplishment? Are you serious? I'm voting for Obama yet I'll admit that there are more accomplished people out there, but Palin and accomplishment don't even belong in the same sentence. A small-town Mayor and a less-than-two-year governor of a state with fewer people than live within 5 miles of Obama's house in Chicago who few had heard of before the announcement can't be credibly called "accomplished." I'm sure she's a fine person, but I think Obama had more useful "accomplishments" by the time he graduated high school than she has.

Don't you think you're overstating the case a bit, dear friend? After all, Obama isn't running against Palin, but against McCain, a man who has served as a senator since Obama graduated high school.
