Gingrich Slams MSNBC’s Allen Concerning Palin’s Qualifications

NewsBusters.orgFormer Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich did what conservatives have been waiting for someone to do since Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate: take on someone in the media claiming that she lacks the qualifications to be vice president.Such marvelously occurred Tuesday evening on the convention floor in St. Paul when MSNBC’s Ron Allen said to the former Speaker, “But to be fair, her resume is not something we’re familiar seeing with presidential candidates.”This didn’t sit well with Gingrich who strongly replied (video embedded right, h/t NB readers Matt Noll and Patrick): It’s stronger than Barack Obama’s. I don’t know why you guys walk around saying this baloney. She has a stronger resume than Obama. She’s been a real mayor, he hasn’t. She has been a real governor, he hasn’t. She’s been in charge of the Alaskan National Guard, he hasn’t. She was a whistleblower who defeated an incumbent mayor. He has never once shown that kind of courage. She’s a whistleblower who turned in the chairman of her own party and got him fined $12,000. I’ve never seen Obama do one thing like that. She took on the incumbent governor of her own party and beat him, and then she beat a former Democratic governor in the general election. I don’t know of a single thing Obama’s done except talk and write. Newt then challenged Allen: I’d like you to tell me one thing Sen. Obama’s done.With that, Allen retreated, and said: Thanks very much, Mr. Speaker. I’m going to leave it there. I’m not going to argue the case. Thanks very much.
