Palin says Obama was a community organizer himself. She then went onto criticize Obama for his experience but all her experience was done locally. Obama has contributed to the national government. Obama does have experience where Palin doesn't. Palin insulted Obama and acted as if being a community was a bad thing. Why aren't people spotting the fallacy here?

No, you have it backwards.

From the moment Gov. Palin was named the VP candidate, the Obama campaign insulted her experience as mayor and Governor.

Palin responded by comparing her experience as mayor to Obama's as a community organizer, then contrasted those experiences by saying she had responsibilities.

The Obama campaign didn't insult her. Maybe the people in the media that were on Obama's side may have insulted her-- but Obama has actually made a point to tell the media to back off her. This gave her fuel and righteousness to attack the media that supported her at the time. It wasn't any of Obama's doing.

Yep. The Obama campaign started the pi$$ing match by denegrating her past experience; I believe Obama himself referred to her as 'Mayor Palin' at least once, on top of that condescending statement they released about her time as a mayor of 9,000 people last Friday (and quickly retracted). It was quite disrespectful, although I hear that Biden officially promoted her to Lieutenant Governor today.

When somebody tried to use it by saying it was equal to or more experience than being a small town mayor.
