On the night Sen. Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Party nomination, Sen. John McCain released a television ad marking the historic occasion and congratulating his Democratic opponent.
On the day John McCain announced that he was picking Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton issued a statement calling Palin "the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience."
Burton also referred to Gov. Palin as "an abortion-rights opponent."
I guess that's to draw a contrast from Barack Obama, who supports abortion-on-demand.
And being the mayor of a town of any size is more executive experience than Barack Obama has.
