FACT: Community Organizer != Town Mayor

September 4, 2008

There has been a lot of talk about Palin’s remarks about her being a Mayor being “kinda like a community organizer” and thousands of bloggers and blog commentors are up in arms about the comment:

The only think I observed was Palin dismissing all the hard work community organizers do and critisizing Obama and the democrates.

Obama worked face to face, one on one, with actual people who need help… and the repubs are putting him down for that?

Come on people, wake up.  Palin wasn’t poking fun or belittling the service of community organizers, to construe her comments as an attack on community organizers is a stretch.  Ask any community organizer if they would equate their job with that of even a small town major… come one people.

She was pointing out the simple fact that being a community organizer is not the same as a town mayor.  I think everyone will agree.

Bonus. This one is off topic but I thought it was too hilarious to pass up, from the Enlightened Voter:
