Unclear on the concept

The NY Times' liberal columnist Bob Herbert, in trying to attack Sarah Palin, unwittingly does in his own side:

"How is it that this woman could have been selected to be the vice presidential candidate on a major party ticket? How is it that so much of the mainstream media has dropped all pretense of seriousness to hop aboard the bandwagon and go along for the giddy ride? For those who haven’t noticed, we’re electing a president and vice president, not selecting a winner on “American Idol.”

That's true--and so how did Barack Obama, despite his lack of experience, get to be the Democratic Party nominee? Why did people like yourself try to tell us that his big crowds, here and in Europe, meant anything when it came to his qualifications to be president? Hmmm?
