Squaring the Culture

"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."
Isaiah 28:17

I Don't Hate To Say "I Told You So…"

I don’t hate to say it. I told you so.

Back on the 29th of August, when Sarah Palin was announced as McCain’s Vice Presidential nominee, a bunch of pundits (mostly to the left of center) said McCain was ceding the experience issue by selecting such an inexperienced Vice President. I said”Hogwash; she’s the bottom of the ticket, Obama’s the top.”

Check out the latest AP poll:

The poll suggests that perceived inexperience is more of a problem at the top of the Democratic ticket than in the No. 2 spot for Republicans.

Eighty percent say McCain, with nearly three decades in Congress, has the right experience to be president. Just 46 percent say Obama, now in his fourth year in the Senate, is experienced enough.

Fully 47 percent say Obama lacks the proper experience — an even worse reading than the 36 percent who had the same criticism about McCain running mate Sarah Palin, serving her second year as Alaska governor after being a small-town mayor.


Hat tip goes to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air, who parses the rest of the poll data for you.
