Does Sarah Palin have more experience than John McCain

Yesterday my sister and her husband renewed their wedding vows.  Both of them and my parents were all wearing light colors or white.  Me, I was wearing a blue shirt, clearly I didn’t get the memo.

Now listening to every single Republican defend Sarah Palin’s experience, it is clear that they ALL got the memo.  The most common way to describe her experience, and in a way to make it superior to Barack Obama is to focus on her executive experience.  This executive experience that they mention is being the mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska, but not at the same time, now that would be multi-tasking.

Now it is true that she has more executive experience than Obama, and more than John McCain.  So if we follow this line of reasoning, shouldn’t she be at the topic of the ticket as she has more executive experience than John McCain?

Of course if the Republican party could make a rational argument, we might see it, but right now they are applying two standards in defending her experience, she has more executive experience than Obama, McCain, and Joe Biden, but only mention it in comparison to Obama, not McCain.  Or at least not in comparison in McCain to make he seem less worthy of being on the top of a ticket.

    The Republican spin machine has convinced me that the vast executive experience of Palin makes her far more qualified than McCain to be president. Let’s change the ticket. Palin/McCain.

    She has done that already she must have foreseen this because the other day on one of her rallies she said the Palin/McCain ticket so in her mind it is her who is running for president. Her witch hunting pastor has said so after all he did the laying on of hands and there fore god has ordained her to be president
