What's the downside?

Not to be partisan, but Sarah Palin hasn't impresse, really. And I've seen a commercial that's been running the past few days in CT where the words of Joe Biden when he was running have been used against Obama - he criticizes Obama's vote to cut funding to the troops in Iraq or some such.

So what would be the downside if the Obama people put out commercials of Sarah Palin sounding dumb? Preferably in some contradiction of McCain, but possibly just her talk on foreign policy in the Couric interview. Something like, "John McCain and Sarah Palin feel they're ready to take on the troubles of today's world, but listen to what they had to say a week ago..." Then have Sarah talking about being able to see Russia and end with: "McCain and Palin: Ready to lead? You decide."

Where's the downside?

Because she's a woman, it gets complicated, doesn't it? Like you're attacking your mother and apple pie. And she plays into that. Maybe we can rely on Tina Fey to provide that for us.

I agree, the Obama campaign hasn't been aggressive as it should. Maybe this is Democrat anger looking for a little revenge after 8 years of Rove's tactics, but they need to work that angle more.

And I also agree with Patti, if they did go on the attack, they need to work around the "but I'm a girl" paradox.
