Here’s the question that has ended every single argument I have had with Obama-supporting colleagues, friends and relatives about this election:
What makes Barack Obama more qualified than Sarah Palin?
They hate that one, because they know the answer: nothing.
I get responses like:
“Well, Obama seems to have heard of the issues.” – Famous Intellectual
“If you have to ask that, there’s no point in answering you.” – Cherished Relative
“He seems highly intelligent.” – London Mayor (OK, I didn’t ask him. I read his article.)
They cannot name a single Obama achievement.
They attach the word “seems” to every word of praise for Obama.
They have no idea why they’re supporting him. And it frightens them.
