Is There a Particular *Reason* that Former Elementary Student Barack Obama and his Surrogates Refuse to Acknowledge that Sarah Palin is a Governor

Is There a Particular *Reason* that Community Organizer Barack Obama and his Surrogates Refuse to Acknowledge that Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska?

Now I'm starting to feel like a tattletale for tweaking you like that.

Anyway, I'm really glad Lieberman brought up the point I've been making to my predominately liberal friends: everything Obama talks about (fighting special interests, bridging the partisan divide, etc.), Palin and McCain have actually done.

Lifelong John McCain fan Matt Welch scores an interesting interview at Reason:

A: Let me tell you all the nice things about Sarah Palin: Sarah Palin has been a pretty freaking awesome governor. She came in saying that the entire system was corrupt, and that Republicans were evil, and she was going to just mix everything up and get us a gas pipeline and end of story. And she got to power, she was elected overwhelmingly by independents, beat Tony Knowles, who had been governor before.

The Republicans hate her. If you go and talk to the Alaska delegation here, they despise her.

Q: Really?

A: Hate her. Oh my god! This whole thing about her retarded son really being her daughter's was started by Lyda Green, who is president of the senate, a Republican. [...]

She gave a two-finger salute to Conoco Phllips and Exxon Mobile, raised their taxes on their oil, put in place a transparent way to bid for the seed money and the licenses to finally, finally, put in a natural gas pipeline in Alaska. And it was won by a Canadian company. And she went to the mat and made it happen. She has been systematically pulling the drilling licenses of Conoco Phillips and Exxon Mobile for areas that they haven't touched. I mean, they've been hoarding reserves, and she says, you know, use it or lose it, and she has been sending the attorney general time after time to revoke these things. It's absolutely fascinating.

Anecdotes like this aren't always useful, but between this quote and what we've seen over the last three days, Governor Palin seems to be making my kind of enemies.

Don't fell guilty. You were right. I can't very well complain about treatment of Governor Palin, when I stoop to cheap shots like that.

Obama will probably win, but at what cost. If he does, the rest of his term, people will be pointing to how the media and blogs treated Governor Palin and laying it off on Obama.
