Palin "Out-Smarts" Biden




2008 Sharon Hughes 



You've heard the smears and attacks on Sarah Palin from the left, be they liberal commentators or feminists. Some of the attacks are indeed sexist such as this photo of Palin taken during a rally.


Some attack her experience, others attack her intelligence. To that end the following is very interesting...


An analysis of the grade-level of the two VP candidates' language used during Thursday night's debate was conducted by a language monitoring service, the Global Language Monitor, and reported by CNN.


While many opponents say Sarah Palin is not qualified to be vice president, and some have insinuated that she is not smart, survey results show not only that she won the debate, but CNN's analysis showed her language skills were higher than Joe Biden's.


As reported by CNN: Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at a more than ninth-grade level and Joseph Biden spoke at a nearly eighth-grade level in Thursday night's debate between the vice presidential candidates.


The two candidates were nearly even in total number of words spoken. The normally voluble Biden restrained his tendency to ramble by uttering just 5,492 words during the 90-minute debate, versus 5,235 for Palin.

Here's the breakdown:
Grade level: Biden, 7.8; Palin, 9.5 (Newspapers are typically written to a sixth-grade reading level).


Just shows how un-smart Palin's critics are!
