You could be the mayor of a tiny town in Iowa who'd never made a serious decision in your life. You could be a raging alcoholic and a moron. But if you've held office for 32 years, you'd have more "experience" than Obama. "Experience" without brains is absolutely worthless. My 17 year old dog has "experience" but I definitely would not want him to run the US. He is old and cranky. Doesn't see too good, can't hear much. So why do people buy the GOP line about McCain & Palin having "experience?" Is it just because they like to get all fuzzy eyed and faint about any republican candidate whatsoever, even if they are brain-dead or brainless? Does anybody buy that "experience" crap?
