Kayak to Alaska?

AS CONGRESS continues to kneel backward against a solution to the economic gloom, the McCain ticket faces a growing political storm over his erratic comments and the presence of Sarah Palin - who was recruited by the GOP deep thinkers as his Pocahontas.  With her vacant response to each question raised by the media she has betrayed her poor entry level grasp of worldly issues.  Some of her allies in the GOP are getting jittery as her popularity numbers sink.  Some, like Kathleen Parker of the conservative National Review, want her to hop onto her kayak and paddle home. Palin, wrote Parker, is "clearly out of her league."  She added:  "If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall St. on her own."  

McCain is having none of it, complaining that a hard question  from a voter that  tripped up Palin during a campaign stop was "gotcha journalism".  Cool.
