Mainstream media having torrid love affair with Barack Obama!

San Jose Mercury 

News Calls Palin 

‘Clearly Unqualified’ 



The San Jose Mercury News, in an editorial today,

called Sarah Palin “clearly unqualified”

to become vice-president. 

The reason? 

Lack of experience. 

Suddenly  liberal members of the media,

such as Campbell Brown, until now not the

least bit worried about Barack Obama’s lack

of experience are concerned about this issue. 

So how to explain away Obama’s own lack of experience?




The Mercury News has broadened the definition

of experience to include the experience of

running for higher office. 

You read that right. 

Barack Obama is now qualified to run for

president because he has the “experience”

of campaigning for nomination. 

We’ll get to that new definition of experience

but first let us visit the lead in of this editorial

which sounded a bit peeved that John McCain’s

Palin pick stole the thunder from the

Democrat convention (emphasis mine):

Twelve hours after Democrats ended their

national convention in Denver with fireworks

and a stirring ovation for presidential nominee

Barack Obama, Republican John McCain

stole back the spotlight and some of their thunder. 

But his wild-card choice of the unknown and

untested Sarah Palin as his vice president

will backfire if voters see through it.



What the Mercury News means is if the voters

become as liberally “enlightened” as they are

and reject Sarah Palin. Now we come to the

Mercury News’ newfound concern over experience:

Picking an obscure first-term small-state

governor was bold, and it may prove to

be shrewd.

But for the sake of the country should

McCain win, it was unwise.

The decision was quintessential McCain.

Hemmed in by Washington wags who warned

him not to choose the vice president he liked —

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman —

and urged him to choose one he didn’t —

primary nemesis Mitt Romney —

McCain defied them with an anti-establishment

conservative from outside their orbit.

The solidly anti-abortion mother of five

may please the social conservatives

who had doubts about McCain. 

And Palin made it clear that she will go

right after women voters still loyal to

Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton,

even though she lacks Clinton’s depth

and knowledge, and disagrees with her

on nearly everything. 



As an activist who took on her state’s

corrupt Republican old guard, she

reinvigorates McCain’s maverick image,

which he has largely repressed over the past year.

But her selection mocks a primary argument

for McCain’s candidacy, that foreign threats

demand a seasoned, serious commander in chief. 

In potentially putting her in a position to

become president at a moment’s notice,

it brings attention to his health and his age.

 It calls his judgment into question. 

Palin may have small-town spunk and

kitchen-table common sense, but she’s

patently unqualified for the office.



“Unqualified” in the liberal opinion

of the Mercury News. 

And now we come to their money quote

to explain away Barack Obama’s lack of

the experience they are suddenly so

concerned about:

Republicans will argue that Palin is no

less experienced than Obama.

That’s ridiculous. 

In the Senate, in organizing a stunningly

successful national campaign and through

18 months of hard campaigning for the nomination,

Obama proved to be as capable, articulate

and knowledgeable as anyone in Congress —

and certainly the equal of McCain.



Folks, if you ever need a laugh,

then print out the above quote, laminate it,

and place it in your wallet to pull out and

read when you need an easy chuckle. 

Palin’s experience, in the not so humble

opinion of the Mercury News, as governor

of a state doesn’t really count but merely

campaigning for office on the part of the

Lightworker can be chaulked up as

important experience. 

I guess Ralph Nader and Harold Staasen

were highly qualified because of their vast

experience running for office.

Oh, and let us not forget Lyndon LaRouche too.

The editorial concludes with a paean to

their “experienced” messiah who can do

no wrong:



On Thursday, Obama laid out a contrasting

vision that appeals to Americans’ optimism

and desire for approaches to health care,

energy and the economy that differ

sharply from the current course. 

Speaking to a captivated audience and a

united party in his acceptance speech,

Obama forcefully answered those who

have dismissed him as all eloquence

and no substance.

The Republican convention is set to open

on Monday, with a new supporting cast

and a twist in the plot. But Denver will be

a tough act to follow.
