palin in comparison

i thought this quote to be spot on regarding palin's speech last night at the RNC....

"John McCain and Sarah Palin just laid out how they intend to run this country. With scorn and belligerence for anyone who tries to bring their communities together to make things better. The Courage Campaign has spent years trying to empower exactly the sort of grassroots organizing that's vital to bringing about meaningful change."

"... In a speech that neglected to mention education, health care, comprehensive economic reforms, or choice, we heard in Palin's silence exactly her trouble with community organizing: An organized community is an empowered community."

-Lucas O'Connor, an online organizer for the Courage Campaign

and i don't doubt for one minute that mrs. palin is a nice person with good fact, i might even like to sit down and kick back a few shots with the woman. after all, she might be the only pit bull soccer mom out there to drink me under the table. and i might even call hillary and ask her to join us (making sure she wears her mud wrestling clothes, of course)
