Palin Should Quit, Conservative Columnist Says

Kathleen Parker is a conservative syndicated columnist whose work is syndicated by Washington Post Writers Group. She initially was an avid supporter of Sarah Palin, but she now believes Palin should bow out of the race. Parker calls Palin, "an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League." She indicts Palin for having too much to say but too little content in the words that come out of her mouth. She concludes her column:
McCain can’t repudiate his choice for running mate. He not only risks the wrath of the GOP’s unforgiving base, but he invites others to second-guess his executive decision-making ability . . . . 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.
I wonder if Parker is a lonely voice, or if she is going to start an avalanche of voices. I doubt that McCain will rebound either from Palin leaving the ticket or Palin staying on the ticket. Personally, I think the one is probably as disastrous for him as the other.
