I don't know, it may well be a waste of time to critique Palin rather than McCain, but I'm going to go ahead and post this anyway because it's just too important to pass up.

To understand the importance of community organizers, read Cany's "25 Years of my Life Dissed by Palin". Other Palin commentary from Cany is here, from Susan Russell at An Inch at a Time, and from Huckelberries Online's Bob at The Unbearable Bobness of Being. Also, here's Joe Biden on the Governor's acceptance speech - sounds like he's got a cold, but his points about the middle class are still important:
