Lots on the left are having hissy-fits about Alaska Gov. Sarah H. Palin. In case you missed the news, Sen. John McCain, selected Gov. Palin as his running mate.
That depends on who you listen to.
If you listen to the Democrats, the problem is that she doesn't have experience. They are saying she's not ready to step in to be President if President McCain doesn't complete his term.
They say they look forward to comparing Sen. Joseph Biden, the Democrats' vice-presidential pick, to Gov. Palin. The current talking points are that Biden is ready to step in to the presidency if necessary.
Those of us on the right don't mind that argument. Not at all.
Ignore for a minute that, as mayor of Wasilla, she kept her promise to cut property taxes. Ignore for a minute that, as member and chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she began her successful campaign to fight corruption. Ignore for a minute that, as Governor, she's actually addressing issues of energy and environment.
Ignore all that.
Focus on the Democrats' question: Who's more ready to step in as President?
I'll leave that answer to you.
But here's a hint: It's not Barack Obama.
