NRO's Kathleen Parker bails on Palin:
McCain is stuck with his choice now. Parker urges Palin to "bow out for personal reasons," but this would sink McCain '08 faster than his own campaign manager seems capable of. He made a choice that he thought would win him this election, not a choice that would ad substance to his possible presidency, making a mockery of women in politics.
It was fun while it lasted.
Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.
No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I’ve been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I’ve also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there’s not much content there.
[...] If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.
Stick a fork in him.
