So the opinion of these commentators is dismissed because they have writing errors? Can we also dismiss everything Palin says because she thinks being neighbors of Russia gives her foreign policy experience? It is an arrogant and elitist position that ones level of education, grammar or spelling (or typing ability) somehow reduces the value of their opinion.

Also how do you know enough about me to include me as "you guys"? This seems like one more comment without enough info to know what you are talking about.

Perhaps you would like to substitute a writing test for the long dismissed poll tax or produce a well written essay before being allowed to practice first amendment rights. I am not sure Sarah would get to speak at all. Sorry, I don't believe that only the well educated and grammatically careful have a voice in the active debate about those who seek to lead our country.
