And by Quayle, I mean an inexperienced, weak vice-presidential candidate. And that’s what Sarah Palin brings to the table – almost no experience in governance even in her own state. I might add that Alaskan Republicans could be the most corrupt in the country, and Sarah Palin is close with them, even Republican Senator Ted Stevens after he was indicted. She’s actually under an ethics investigation right now.
What a weak, desperate move.
UPDATE: Obama’s response:
“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain’s commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush’s failed economic policies — that’s not the change we need, it’s just more of the same,” said Bill Burton, Obama Campaign Spokesman.
UPDATE II: In a CNBC interview earlier this month, Palin admitted that she didn’t even know what the VP does:
“But as for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell ya, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me, what is it exactly that the VP does every day?” – Sarah Palin, 8/1/08, CNBC, “Kudlow and Company”
