I’m astonished that Senator McCain has to sit by his vice presidential candidate to defend her statements, blaming the press for Governor Palin’s clearly stated position about Pakistan, a contradiction to what McCain said in the debate Friday. McCain calls a question by a voter a “gotcha journalism” tactic.
Palin’s position, that cross-border strikes are necessary, is exactly what McCain condemned as naive and dangerous. Either she’s naive and dangerous or McCain’s characterization of Senator Obama is mere posturing.
We get to decide. Do you want these people running the country?
Now he’s out of the race. McCain should continue the debates, regardless of what he wants to spend his days doing. It is essential to our democracy that we hear from the candidates about all the issues.
If Senator McCain wants to suspend his campaign, he should drop out of the race and let someone who wants to answer to the American people run in his place. That would rule out Sarah Palin as a presidential candidate, as well.
