The New York Times has posted an article online on the Governor Sarah Palin vice-presidential pick that appears to be an effort to muster support for the Obama campaign. Its headline and column assumes a priori that Gov. Palin is unqualified and a “drag” on Senator John McCain’s presidential bid. The drag on the ticket is the Dow, Wall Street woes and the burgeoning recession. However, I posted this comment that appears among the multitudinous comments.

On the Campaign

Second-Guessing the Palin Pick

A big question inside and outside the McCain campaign is whether the senator would be in a better position had he not chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate…

Joe Biden is less qualified due to his support of the Iraq War. While Senator Obama questioned Senator Clinton’s “judgment” in supporting such a criminal enterprise, he then selects a prowar plagiarist as his vice-presidential running “mate.” Gov. Palin is rather bright, did a brilliant interview on C-SPAN last Feb. on energy and I think is the object of unnecessary ridicule. The press should assess the qualifications of a male candidate who disgraced himself and his nation in voting for mass murder in Iraq and now apparently Syria as well.
