First, We disagree on the way the GOP has characterized Obama's leadership roles responsibilites AKA "executive experience" Secondly, we disagree on how the GOP characterizes Palin's experience and third, we disagree that "executive experience" is the end-all-be-all to governing. I think it's elitist to assume that prior management experience is the only measure of capabilty. It's a good indicator, yes, but to say otherwise would lead to a world run by MBA's.
It's the height of hypocrisy and irony that the GOP is using the elitist rally cry of "executive experience" all the while calling Obama an elitist. I really hope to hear some push back on this very soon.

There's no story linked to it yet, but Drudge has the following up on their website:
Rasmussen: Palin more popular than Obama or McCain...Developing...
Its not the headline, mind you, but its going to be very, very interesting to see what the polls say on Monday or Tuesday, folks, after this fully sets in. Even Rasmussen was on Fox News yesterday saying that the full effect of the RNC wouldn't be felt until early next week.

Both Obama and McCain are now viewed favorably by 57% of the nation’s voters (see trends). However, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is viewed favorably by 58%--a point more than either Presidential hopeful. Forty percent (40%) have a Very Favorable opinion of her.

You know, old uncle charlie had an expression:
If you don't want the media to mercilessly crucify you before an entire nation, you might want to hold back on the old daily insults against it.
But what does he know, right?
It's called a reaction.
So, you think the media has a right to get personally offended and slant its reporting based on that?
Expectations are the building blocks of disappointment.
John McCain headed into the last 60 days of the US presidential campaign neck and neck with Barack Obama after a “Sarah Palin bounce” appeared to have all but cancelled out the Democrat’s lead in the polls.
With the Republican Party finishing its convention in St Paul believing that victory on November 4 is truly within its grasp, the Rasmussen tracking poll yesterday had Mr Obama on 46 per cent and Mr McCain on 45 per cent.
Mr Obama headed to the battleground state of Pennsylvania last night knowing that he has a titanic fight on his hands to realise his dream of becoming America’s first black president. His aides have said for months that the race for the White House will be close, but Republicans left their Minnesota convention knowing that the contest is now really up for grabs.
