 Listening to Newt talk (ugh... God above let me never need type those words again) he seemed so very, very impressed with Palin's resume, and her (paraphrased) "Real, executive experience."
 He cited her time as governor, as mayor, as the leader of the Alaskan National Guard.  He then dared the commentator to name anything Obama did that was half as impressive.
 Let's forget the obvious slight, and move onto the more important question:

 Can someone tell me when it was McCain served in such a real, executive position?  When he was mayor, or Governor, when he was the man at the top, and served with distinction?
 Alright, forget distinction... can anyone name when he served in an executive capacity at all?

 This seems like a punchline that writes it self: to Newt and all the Republicans out there, we apologize for our slights and slanders towards Governor Palin - in fact, with all her real, impressive, executive experience, we'd like to know why she isn't lead on the ticket.  Tell me, why is she playing second fiddle to a man who's never served in an executive capacity?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
