Interestingly enough, a quick check of the contribution histories of the two professors shows that they are both Obama donors.

Strangely, the article doesn't note the "minor" detail that these are a pair of partisans who have cast their lot with the opposing campaign.

1- McCain should paint this pick as the beginning of the end of the beltway elitists who have been in Congress for 20-40 years. Examples include Biden, Specter, Byrd, Lautenberg, and on and on. These buffoons have not accomplished anything of note. Replace them.
2- Palin has a journalism degree - shouldn't that be counted twice as a strong credential? heh.
3- One of these guys is a scholar of the vice preseidency? Who would do that? Certainly suggests he ain't too bright doesn't it.
4- I am shocked the AP ran and found Obama donors to tell us Illinois is a big dynamic state (did they leave out the corrupt part).
5- We need reform in Washington. Obama did not reform anything in Chicago; Palin seems to have done some good things in Alaska.
6- To clean house, you need a woman! (Can I say that here?heh)

I love how Republicans always describe thinking people as "elitists". Joe Biden hasn't been a senator since 1971 by doing nothing for the State of Delaware. And if you've looked up any primary sources on either of the Democratic candidates, I don't see how you can say that both Obama and Biden are not highly qualified for the offices they seek. Sarah Palin, however, is neither qualified or sane. Although, I do think it's brilliant Republican (perhaps Rovian) strategy. Appeal to the least common denominator in the party, get the evangelicals fired up to vote for the gun-toting, anti-abortion creationist, while at the same time appealing to those Hillary supporters who wanted only to see a woman in the White House. Too bad - the majority of the women who voted for Hillary in the primaries did so because they actually care about the issues, not because she's a woman.

I never said that. Academics are leftists much more often than not b/c 1) they deal with theory more than reality, and 2) because of #1, they find it difficult to function in the real world (aka reality).

Biden, yes. Obama -- not even close.

Sarah Palin, however, is neither qualified or sane.

Sane? And you just claimed Obama is highly qualified for the presidency? LOL!!!!

This convo is OVER!
