Palin For VP

Wow. Discussing McCain's selection of Sarah Palin for VP, CNN criticises her- wait for it- experience.

And one of the prerequisites, we'd like to believe are prerequisites, for picking a vice presidential running mate are a person who can step into the office at a moment's notice and not miss a beat, a person who is prepared to be President of the United States. Now, she is a manager. She is the governor of a state. She does have limited experience, though. She's also been the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. And for a time she was the ethics chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

And the punchline of the joke-

But that does not add up to broad experience, particularly the type of broad experience that you think should launch you to the national level.

And Obama has more experience than her in what way?
