Letters The SF Chronicle Won't Print: A Continuing Series
Senator John McCain revealed everything we need to know about his qualifications for the presidency in his choice of running mate.
Friday, a bipartisan investigative committee in Alaska (ten Republicans, four Democrats, all agreeing unanimously) released a report concluding that Governor Sarah Palin unlawfully abused her power by firing Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan, who had resisted her efforts to get him to fire her former brother-in-law from his job as a state trooper. Recent interviews with journalists Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric have revealed Governor Palin to be woefully unprepared for their questions, unfit for high office and overmatched by the enormity of the challenge. Haven't we had more than enough high-level ineptitude and ethical chicanery from the current administration over the past eight years? Why on earth would anyone support a candidate so obviously unqualified to hold a job that is a heartbeat away from the presidency, much less the man who showed such poor judgment as to have picked her in the first place?
