“I’m the new energy, the new face, the new ideas and he’s got the experience based on many many years in the Senate and voters are gonna have a choice there of what it is that they want in these next four years.”-???, 9/30/08It was probably this guy, eh?
Well, no. In fact, it was our very own Sarah Palin today speaking with a reporter. Sounds awfully similar to the theme we've been hearing over and over again for months, eh? Well I'd argue the similarity is incredibly intentional.
It says, "Ok media/Dems...you want to define me as someone lacking the experience and depth to be President? Fine. Do you happen to notice what drives my candidacy...my experience, my character, my judgement...is equal, if not superior to what Obama claims as his own?"
In other words, by identifying herself on equal ground with Obama, it provokes the undecided voter to question why Obama hasn't been called out himself.
