The snooty people don’t like Sarah Palin because GASP She’s not a lawyer. I am a lawyer, and a lawyer’s background and education lend themselves to a wider viewpoint with more basic understanding of the political system in America and how laws are supposed to be made and to operate. However, the lack of being one DOES NOT automatically preclude one from holding public office. I promise you; we are NOT NORMAL PEOPLE. And I say that with the utmost humility and admiration for people who are normal. The only bonus to being a lawyer? You can readily spout off historical U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Would you rather be smart (like Sarah obviously is) or just APPEAR smart?
