I didn't think much of the argument that Sarah Palin's relative inexperience will help highlight Barack Obama's inexperience but then I reviewed a Palin biography for the Washington Times and ended up writing, well, this:

"Barack Obama and company have criticized Mrs. Palin's relative inexperience and her small town start in politics. Superficially, they have a point. (Though, in fairness, we should note that Mr. Obama won his first elective office by having all the other candidates thrown off the ballot, that he has never held a government executive post and that he is serving his first term in the United States Senate.)"
