Somewhat expected – when a young, tough, fine-looking woman who does not look/act bitter (or angry) and has strong traditional values (and has become quickly a headache for the Democrats) comes out to challenge the Obama/Biden ticket – many myths about her sprung out there in the blogosphere.
The best site that dispells 7 of the most popular of these myths/lies can be found here.
So far I think that Palin does rock. She is a genuine, non-elitist, and smart American woman. I am not worried about her in the debates, but it remains to be seen how she will handle the press, Biden etc.
Meanwhile – I stick by this statement: her experience is comparable (if not better) with that of Obama (who is the PRESIDENTIAL candidate on the Democratic ticket). That means that the Rebublicans can still use the experience argument, while the Democrats have no right whatsoever. It is that simple. If I have to have an unexperienced candidate – I prefer it in the VP position.
If you can’t see it, you may not be able to distinguish between the main candidate (the president who has to lead from day one) and the supporting cast.
