Palin: "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities,"
Palin's actual responsibilities upon assuming the Mayoral seat over a town with a population of (then) approximately 5,000?
1. Create and fill City Administrator position
2. Hand bulk of daily responsibilities over to the new City Administrator -- so that taxpayers are paying the Mayoral stipend PLUS a City Admin's salary & burden rate to get the same work out of two people they'd previously gotten out of one.
Ahhhh... No wonder Palin leapt at the Veep offer after learning that all the Veep does is sit around waiting to either cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate or for the President to die!
Does she have the experience necessary to sit around twiddling her fingers while other people tend to the actual responsibilites of governing our great nation? As much as I hate to admit it, I have to give her credit where it's due... I can't think of anyone I've heard might have or even should have made either candidate's long list who is more experienced for that role than she.
Heckuva job, Johnnie Mac! After 8 long years of seeing important positions filled by wholly unqualified individuals, you've proven yourself a maverick willing to find just the right person for the job.
