Just As I Thought

Brain like a used tea bag

Reading about Sarah Palin’s rant against Obama this morning in the Washington Post, I came across a particularly stupid web comment (in a page filled with stupid comments):

Just for a minute, forget political party, forget names, race and gender. Answer this question:

Who would you vote for to run this country?

1 – community organizer.
or
2 – former mayor, energy commissioner and
governor.

NUFF SAID!

This is typical of right-wing crazies: they ignore facts left and right and begin to truly believe the nonsense they spew. I guess this commenter forgot a few things, like the fact that he was a senator. Just for the record, let’s take a look at President Obama’s resume, shall we?

  • Graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School
  • President of the Harvard Law School
  • Community Organizer
  • Civil Rights Attorney
  • Constitutional Law Professor at University of Chicago Law School
  • Three term Illinois State Senator
  • U.S. Senate
  • Nobel Peace Prize laureate (hey, we all pad our resume with awards we didn’t necessarily feel worthy of.)

Now let’s take a look at Mrs. Palin’s credentials:

  • Hawaii Pacific University (Fall 1982), North Idaho College (spring & fall 1983), University of Idaho (fall 1984, spring 1985), Matanuska-Susitna College (fall 1985), University of Idaho (spring 1986). Bachelors in communications, 1987.
  • Miss Wasilla, 1984; third place Miss Alaska
  • Sportscaster
  • City Council, Wasilla, AK
  • Mayor, Wasilla, AK
  • Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (2003, resigned 2004)
  • Governor, Alaska (2006, resigned 2009)

Now answer the question: Who would you vote for?
