More Conservatives Calling for Palin's Ouster
WXYZ ^ | 9/30/08 | staff

WASHINGTON (AP) — Has Sarah Palin become a liability for John McCain? Since joining his ticket, the overnight political celebrity has seen the shine come off her poll standings and doubts surface among some conservatives once excited about her candidacy.

The Alaska governor still draws huge crowds and energizes McCain's drive for the White House. Yet a whirlwind month after he made her his running mate, Palin is starting to seem very, very vulnerable.

A stumbling interview with CBS's Katie Couric last week in which Palin equated her state's proximity to Russia with foreign policy experience may have been her defining moment so far. Now, attention is shifting to her debate Thursday with Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden.

So far, Palin's been a huge hit with conservative and Republican voters, and McCain's frequent campaign-trail companion; but also a candidate largely sheltered from reporters whose few interviews have prompted some Republicans to react defensively and at times with frustration.

"She answers questions like a beauty queen," said Obama backer Dawna Attig, 45, of Barre, Vt. "She's an insult to hard-working, intelligent women."

Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough, now a host on MSNBC television, said Palin "just seems to be out of her league" on national issues. Rich Lowry, editor of the conservative National Review magazine, called her performance "dreadful" and warned that without improvement, "she risks damaging her political brand forevermore." And conservative columnist Kathleen Parker said Palin should drop out to save "McCain, her party and the country she loves."

The MSM fantasy drumbeat rages on. She is the reason McCain has any shot at winning. Period.

‘insult to hard working women’

Yeah, right. A lot of women Palin’s age are Governors in the USA. PDS strikes again!

I am so sick of this garbage and I am literally salivating at the thought of Vice President Palin telling the LSM to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine!

I’m glad that the MSM is setting up a let down. Palin will do really well against that dumb-and-even-dumber Biden.

“She’s an insult to hard-working, intelligent women.”

Obama is an insult to hard working intelligent black men. Is that racist?

Yep, the left and the MSM would be thrilled to see her go. Those on the right calling for her ouster must be nuts. Even if she were as bad as they say, dumping a VP nominee at this late date would make a gift of the election to Obama.

They would have had a lower grade, but there are no more letters in the alphabet. Probably a station that was a Kwame "enabler"

Obama answers questions like he has been the beneficiary of affirmative action. Oh yeah, he has.

Interesting that the article is titled More Conservatives Calling for Palin's Ouster and then it first cites an Obama supporter, then an MSNBC talking head, then an off-the-reservation columnist. PDS, pure and simple.

How can Sarah stay in the race when influential heavyweights like Dawna Attig are against her? /s

Exactly.

Anybody care to guess what the polls would look like if McCain picked Lieberman instead of Palin?

Complete nonsense. Conservatives are excited about Sarah and looking forward to her debate this Thursday against the Human Gaffe Machine!
