All other things being equal between two hypothetical candidates, with the only differences being: candidate A was a mayor and governor, but never a community organizer; and candidate B was a community organizer, but never a mayor and governor; I'll vote for candidate A.
All other things being equal between two hypothetical candidates, with the only difference being: candidate A likes hockey, but is not a lawyer, and candidate B does not like hockey, but is one of the most respected legal minds in the country as evidenced by the fact that he taught constitutional law for over a decade at one of our most exclusive law schools; I'll vote for candidate B. You can think whatever you want about the experience issue but oversimplifications of it are not compelling.
Palin did not belittle community organizers....
In fact, she said that, unlike mayors, community organizers do not have "actual responsibilities..." Thats not spin. Thats what she said.
Nor can I conclude that Republicans generally disrespect community organizers because of their criticism of Obama.
Guliani laughed about Obama's experience as a community organizer. Thats not spin. Thats what he did.
