WASHINGTON–A conservative columnist who welcomed Sarah Palin's entry in national politics says she's proven to be a dud and should step aside as Republican presidential candidate John McCain's running mate.

Kathleen Parker, writing in the National Review Online, says her "cringe reflex is exhausted" after watching the Alaska governor stumble through TV interviews and it's become clear to her that Palin is out of her league.

Parker is getting her 15 minutes of fame. Hopefully she’ll disappear from the public eye after that ... maybe go off and write a book that no one will ever read

Parker just jumped the shark.

Anything she says from this point forward can safely be dismissed as the ravings of a lunatic.

Kathleen Parker is wrong. Did she want her 15 of fame like W’s former press secretary? Looks like she has it.

Kathleen, Kathlenn, Kathleen. Now you run along and play and let this race unfold. Gov. will do just fine. Of course she is nervous. Look what the press has done to her. Can you not say this is a pile-on?

Gee does Kathleen Parker want to blow the election? Can you imagine the reaction if Palin were dropped from the ticket? The same uproar that we all thought would happen if Joe Biden were replaced by Obama would happen if Palin were replaced. All the questions about the judgement of picking her in the first place, plus how excited the base will, or won’t be, excited about any replacement will dominate the news cycle for a week. With only five weeks to go, you can’t realistically replace your running mate.

The only time any conservative is given credence by the MSM is after he/she jumps the shark.

The people who don't like Palin were not going to vote for McCain anyway. Palin's place on the ticket has energized the conservative base like nothing else would have.

And it's the conservative base that supplies the volunteers that McCain needs. Giving the conservative base a reason to ALL go to the polls in November will do more to ensure victory than anything else.

Can anyone recall the last time the AP made a news story out of the opinion of one mid-tier columnist?

MEOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Media Expoitation of A Real Woman

This is another clinical case of an
aging female writer disabled through jealousy
of a REAL journalist, Governor Palin. She
reads CBS’ faked transcripts and goes
out on a delirious limb, revealing the emptiness of herself.

“Parker is getting her 15 minutes of fame. Hopefully she’ll disappear from the public eye after that ... maybe go off and write a book that no one will ever read...”

Yes. She and Nancy Pelosi could form a book club, then they’d both each sell a book:)

after watching the Alaska governor stumble through TV interviews

Shove it, katie. Give me a frickin' break. Compare if you dare the softball interviews and the way the msm has handled the magical negro to the way they have blasted Governor Palin. Sufferin' cats, lady, pull your head outta the mud.
