The Obama campaign is harping on a talking point about how Sarah Palin's speech needs to be discounted because it was written by a former Bush speechwriter. This is one of the silliest complaints on record. Especially when Obama's star scribe, is a former Kerry speechwriter.

Somehow, this fact hasn't been mentioned at all in the last 24 hours, has it? Your speechwriter, like your experience, only matters if you're Palin.
