Alan, Is it really worth my time to convince you that Obama is not even above-average intelligence? I could provide evidence a mile long and you wouldn’t be convinced. But, for the record, I never said Sarah Palin was brilliant. Never even thought it. Personally, I think her 15 minutes of fame has long since expired and would like her to go away. But, that doesn’t change the fact that in terms of policy, she’s been proven right while Obama has been proven wrong. But, I’m sure you don’t want to get into a debate over policy… I wouldn’t, if I was intent on defending Obama.
