Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Kathleen Parker, conservative columnist, is asking Palin to step aside:

As we’ve seen and heard more from John McCain’s running mate, it is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem. Quick study or not, she doesn’t know enough about economics and foreign policy to make Americans comfortable with a President Palin should conditions warrant her promotion.

If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

If Palin were a man, we’d all be guffawing, just as we do every time Joe Biden tickles the back of his throat with his toes.

Only Palin can save McCain, her party and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first.

Do it for your country.

The bit about Biden escapes me…. Boy, I hope he doesn’t do it in the debates!

About Kathleen’s plea, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry or cheer. Sarah is amusing, but it is sad that image has replaced qualifications in American politics.

Frankly, I agree with Kathleen. We need the best qualified people from both parties. Cheers, Kathleen.

Which raises another issue. All of the third party candidates should be included in the debates. At the very least, we should give them a hearing.

Serious times demand serious ideas from every quarter.

I would be more than happy to help a commentator put up positions of any of the third party candidates.
