A few weeks ago, conservatives hailed the arrival of Sarah Palin as a bright new aggressive voice in politics, but the sheen is wearing off and those who regard the interests of the United States of America as of more importance than supporting a woman in high office, are expressing serious doubts about the candidacy of the maverick from Alaska. Kathleen Parker, who welcomed a true conservative, is now writing in the National Review online that her “cringe reflex is exhausted” watching an ignorant and bumbling woman stumble through one interview after another. “No one hates saying more than I do…that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger pressed over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does.”
Parker now says although Palin represented a refreshing voice in politics it is clear she doesn’t know enough about economics of foreign policy to become president if a President McCain were to die. The Republican conservative urged Palin to save the party by bowing out “for personal reasons” and allow a more experienced person to represent Republicans in the election.
We live in strange times when a person such as Palin can even be considered for the office of vice president of this nation. She most probably represents the worst choice for high political office in the history of the United States of America. What does this say about the “experience” and “cool judgment” of John McCain?
