Credibility doesn’t exist in presidential elections
(on the chance of Palin becoming President)
Presidential elections these days are a media sideshow, a popularity contest and a reflection of the times, add that to campaigning, you have your presidency. Credibility? Doesn’t exist. You have the internet balkanizing everything, you have far faster-moving partisan media than we ever had before. It’s accelerating logarithmically, how fast ideas and memes and talking points can spread. Twitter as a major cultural thing is two years old. TWO YEARS.
It’s like football teams. Nobody asks if the quarterback is “credible”. They just want their team to score more points than the other team. They don’t care if the running back had a DUI. They won the game!
