Schneider: Insider v. outsider

ST LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Sarah Palin is portraying herself as a Washington outsider, as a so called "hockey mom." She's trying to portray Joe Biden as a Washington insider.

    The risk of an outside is that they know nothing about how to work the rope. Especially, if you are an airhead like Palin.

    By the way, Palin memorized well.

    We need a regular joe in the white house...that Joe is not Biden...Palin looks smart and has command of the early issues.

    She's an outsider alright. She is totally out of touch, too! She can't answer the questions and she's determined to boast about her accomplishments as the Governor of Alaska. Americans want to hear what she and McCain are proposing to do for the Nation. Alaska is a small state, which consists of more animals than people! Get a grip, Palin!!

    If there was a question as to how Sarah Palin would respond when asked questions she didn't want to answer, I think we just found out–just don't and talk about your own record. When asked about McCain as regulator, she punted, even when called out directly by Biden. That probably is a smart call because answering questions she didn't have an answer for is what got her in trouble with Katie Couric.

    Because a "Washington insider" is a bad thing for some reason?

    She's right – she's so far out of the loop it looks like a straight line.....

    Goodness. I'm so over her. I don't want a hockey mom – I want a leader who can think for herself.

    I don't like how she's playing up that whole neighborhood mom angle, it really makes her look like a schmuck.

    Biden's right about McCain's health plan. McCain's not telling the whole story.

    Is there any doubt on that ? Obama wants to portray as an outsider but at the same time , looks like Biden can be an insider and still be a regular joe. Job on training, Mr. Biden , does that sound familiar ??

    She's a flat-voiced parrot, but boy, is she good at making terms mean whatever she wants them to.

    She's being 'folksy'. And energy expert. Shouldn't she be wearing a big 'S' on her blouse?
