Sarahcuda Bites Back, Team Obama Cries Foul

The following are excerpts from a campaign email sent to Barack Obama supporters after Sarah Palin's speech at the Republican convention last night. Considering how well she managed to paint him as a textbook liberal and a dyed-in-the-wool Leftist apparatchik. It was, to use the vernacular of President Bush, an "awesome speech."

Here's what Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe had to say:
"I wasn’t planning on sending you something tonight. But if you saw what I saw from the Republican convention, you know that it demands a response."
It demands a response because she totally wiped the floor with your candidate, which was fortunate because Rudy Giuliani only managed to spray your candidate with water, wipe him down with a filthy rag, and demand money. It seems like the Democrats just can't wait to have the person at the top of their ticket get into a scuffle with the person on the bottom of the Republican ticket.
"I saw John McCain’s attack squad of negative, cynical politicians. They lied about Barack Obama and Joe Biden, and they attacked you for being a part of this campaign."
They lied? Can you name one lie? Can you refute one factual statement? Or does it just feel better to say "they lied?" And speaking of cynicism, why don't you ask your golden boy Barack why it's appropriate to continually refer to the governor of Alaska as "the mayor of Wasilly."
"Both Rudy Giuliani and Sarah Palin specifically mocked Barack’s experience as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago more than two decades ago, where he worked with people who had lost jobs and been left behind when the local steel plants closed."
No one mocked the work of community organizers. They mocked the idea that the experience acquired from such a job is more relevant than being the mayor of a town and the governor of a state. Let's not forget that the "community organizer" in question is running for president. America doesn't need someone to staple flyers to telephone poles, or stand up to the powerful "bake sale" lobby. The next quote is my favorite:
"Community organizing is how ordinary people respond to out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies."
South Side of Chicago, eh? Tell me something, which party has held onto the mayor's office of Chicago for the last 75 years? Oh that's right...the Democrat party. But even liberal mayors are still in an executive position and as such are held accountable for staying "in touch" and carrying out policies, whether they succeed or fail.

Palin was able to do this well enough to get re-elected mayor, and then re-elected again as governor, where she actually risked her career for the sake of reform by going up against her own party. You know, to get those "out-of-touch" politicians out of the system? While Obama played by the rules in Chicago and incubated his ambition to leapfrog onto a national ticket, Palin fought to end Republican corruption and won an election.

Which one sounds like change to you?
