Saw this comment (click and scroll) and it says what everyone should be saying:
He is a man who has spent his adult life thinking serious thoughts about serious issues and having serious conversations about them with other serious, well-informed people; while Palin quite as clearly has done none of those things. He was the president of the Harvard Law Review; she was the point guard on her high school basketball team.
Why is it is fucking crime that he is smart? That he has worked hard?
