Hello, Sarah? Are you there? Can we talk with you?

I suppose it should be no surprise that the McCain campaign is afraid to put Palin out in front of the media when it is likely that she would embarrass herself.  A press conference?  Horrors!  Yes, here we are only a few short weeks away from the election, and Palin has not yet held a press conference.

I guess the only way her handlers are comfortable with exposing her is through ghost-written speeches (or should I say speech, since she has hewn so closely to the same speech given at the Republican convention) or closely managed friendly press interviews (like Sean Hannity).  After the initial bruising from Charlie Gibson, I guess it’s clear why.

Is this how participatory democracy is supposed to work?

The fact that McCain chose Palin to be his running mate after meeting her twice, and spending no more than an hour and a half with her continues to boggle my mind.

A friend of mine told me that McCain has a 33% actuarial chance of dying in his first term, but that I shouldn’t worry – the Congress and political establishment wouldn’t actually let her RUN anything.  So he is planning to vote for McCain.  Sorry, but in my book McCain’s poor judgement in choosing Palin disqualifies him for the office of President in my book, and claiming that Palin wouldn’t really be in charge is no salve.  Palin would be Vice President, one heartbeat away from the Presidency.  She’d better be ready to take over.  But she’s simply not, as even my friend would admit.

The stakes are high, the choice is clear.

And Palin is just plain Wrong for America.
