Most of us on dkos remember or have seen clips of Lloyd Bentsen turning to Dan Quayle and telling him "I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine, and, Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."

While watching the Palin interviews and hearing her snotty and condescending speeches trying to make fun of Barack, it occured to me that she is ripe for her own Dan Quayle moment.

It goes something like this...

After she's said something denigrating about Barack's experience, as we all know she will, Biden turns to her and says something like this:

Governor, I appreciate that you were a mayor and have been Governor of Alaska for the past 18 months.  But I can't abide by your derisive comments about Barack Obama. He is a brilliant American who rose from nothing to the top of his class at the toughest law school in the land, then he walked away from the sure riches that awaited him to enter public service.  He has run the longest and most challenging political race in American history and is willing to serve at one of the toughest times in our history. I know Barack Obama, Governor, and while I respect your own considerable achievments, you are no Barack Obama.

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.
