Caroline Kennedy vs Sarah Palin?

With all the recent chatter in the U.S. about Caroline Kennedy's interest in Hilary Clinton's senate seat, it was inevitable that some attention-mongering rightwing pundit would say something about the vapid Sarah Palin.
Chris Kelly skewers Brent Bozell III in ways too numerous to include in this blog, but the most delicious, in my opinion, is this:

"Is Caroline Kennedy really better suited for high office than Sarah Palin? Let's see.

One of them has a law degree from Columbia and has co-written two critically acclaimed books about the Bill of Rights, one specifically about the Fourth Amendment. The other has a journalism degree from college in general and had this conversation with Katie Couric:

Couric: Do you think there's an inherent right to privacy in the Constitution?
Palin: I do. Yeah, I do.
Couric: (That's) the cornerstone of Roe v. Wade.
Palin: I do. And I believe that individual states can best handle what the people within the different constituencies in the 50 states would like to see their will ushered in an issue like that."
In other words, Caroline Kennedy is to Sarah Palin what Michaëlle Jean is to Blob Blogging Wingnut.
