Claire McCaskill despises Sarah Palin and is more than happy to do backflips. Mom extraordinare! and Obama shill (her children made her see the Obama light!) McCaskill just can't stand another woman in politics stealing her mojo. Click that link. She was more than happy to say that experience didn't matter when she was shilling Obama-mania. It was about "inspiration."
"If [Obama] were here for another 5,000 votes -- casting another 5,000 votes in the Senate, I don't think prepares you any more to be President of the United States. He understands how this place works; frankly how it doesn't work. He gets it. He understands that we have got to do it differently. [...] Let's quit demonizing each other."
Oh, but the lovely double-standard comes out full-bore for Sarah Palin.
Q: The arguement you made about Sarah Palin being the Mayor of a town the size of Milverly [sp] is essentially an arguement that the Republicans have been making about Obama: that he was 4 years ago a State Senator. Again, isn't that the same argument that they were making against who would be Commander in Chief as opposed to the Vice President? How do you reconcile that?
McCaskill: I think you can look at the entirety of Barack Obama's record, and look at the entirety of Sarah Palin's record. [...] I guess the point I'm trying to make, Jason, is John McCain doesn't mean it when he says Barack Obama isn't qualified to be President -- because Sarah Palin is. [...] Because if he really believes Barack Obama doesn't have enough Foreign Policy experience to be President after 4 years on the Foreign Relations committee of the United States Senate, then how in the world can he justify the pick of Sarah Palin? That's the point I'm making.
Ah, the "experience" arguement. Never mind that McCaskill obviously doesn't know that Obama has not yet served four years on the committee, has been running for President for about 2 of those years, and has little-to-no record on said committee -- well. Hmm. Ponder.
But I thought experience wasn't necessary! Nevermind her stumping that Biden is basically going to train Obama. HA!
And Sarah Palin is under-experienced? She didn't have her Liutenant Governor Sean Parnell coaching her through the top job.
McCaskill, like the Netroots on this "experience meme," is a joke.
It's a Democrat death trap. Again: attack Palin on her policies; not on her resume or character.
