Palin v. Obama

Beauty and the BeastI’ve gotten a couple of emails disputing my assertion that Sarah Palin would be a much better President than Barack Hussein Obama, despite neither of them having more than a few years experience in government, per se. Well, all I can say is that you are wrong. And not just a little wrong, but profoundly and embarrassingly wrong. It’s a little awkward even responding to you. But, in the interest of your education, let’s look at their respective accomplishments and evaluate them as individuals:

Barack Hussein Obama

  • 1983: B.A. in Political Science from Columbia
  • 1985-1988: Director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP)
  • 1989: Editor of the Harvard Law Review
  • 1990: President of the Harvard Law Review
  • 1991: J.D. from Harvard, magna cum laude
  • 1992-2004: Taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School
  • 1997-2004: Illinois State Senator
  • 2005-2008: U.S. Senator from Illinois

Gov. Sarah Palin

  • 1984: Winner, Miss Wasilla Pageant
  • 1984: Third Place, Miss Alaska Pageant
  • 1984: Miss Congeniality, Miss Alaska Pageant
  • 1987: B.A. in Communications from the University of Idaho
  • 1988: Sportscaster, KUVU, KTVA
  • 1992-1996: Wasilla City Councilmember
  • 1996-2002: Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska
  • 2006-2009: Governor of Alaska

It’s clear from this that, at least on paper, one of these candidates is far more qualified to be the President of the United States, and de facto Leader of the Free World. Palin is a natural!
