    “I’m not a potted plant. I’m here as the blogger. That’s my job.”

    “I’m not a potted plant. I’m here as the blogger. That’s my job.”

    In the comments to my post about the inaccurate reaction to Sarah Palin’s comments about Paul Revere, Taylor Marsh posted the following:

    This post is representative of what’s wrong with our politics on both sides of the aisle.

    The lengths some people will go to in order to offer cover to politicians, whether it’s Palin or Obama, who actually deserve the ridicule they’re receiving at the moment.

    Pointing out that a statement which has been widely portrayed as inaccurate may actually be accurate is “offer[ing] cover”? I don’t think so.

    It’s what bloggers should be doing.

    What are we, potted plants?

    Trochilus, that last quote from Taylor is curious. If you were to line up the executive experience of each of the candidates in the last election, well, you had three senators against a border-state governor…

    Or are we supposed to believe that Hillary's time as First Lady counts as executive experience?

    Perhaps there just is no readily discernible accounting for the facts, or lack thereof, underscoring Taylor Marsh's rhetorical flourishes.

    Certainly I'm not going to volunteer to be her defender in that regard . . . well, except to say that Hillary apparently did garner some executive experience in overseeing the White House travel office.

    Oh wait . . . maybe that was a false start . . . complete with false statements from Hillary herself. My bad!

    But, there was "HillaryCare", no? That was executive experience! Not a particularly successful one for her, or for the country, I guess. But it was executive experience.
