It's not surprising that you're a Sarah Palin fan because both of you are consistently heavy on the hyperbole and light on the facts.<quoted text>
We knew Palin was a popular governor who took on the corruption in her own party and won.
That alone made her a heck of a lot more qualified than a junior Senator whose rise in politics was already questionable.
Obama won 2 times in the Illinois Senate - the first time by disqualifying his opponents petitions so he ran unopposed. The second time was because Axelrod made sure Obama's opponent's messy divorce was plastered all over the news and, therefore, Obama won again unopposed and didn't even win by a huge vote either time.
He won the Senate by another convenient "sex scandal" resulting in his opponent dropping out.
What a rather unlikely coincidence, huh?
If his opponents in the Illinois Senate race didn't have enough valid signatures well then that's the way it goes. Jack Ryan is responsible for his own sex scandal Carol bringing his wife to sex clubs and pressuring her to engage in sex with others while he watched. Oh those Republican family values again!
