Now it’s a top McCain national security adviser:

Lawrence Eagleburger, who served as Secretary of State under George H.W. Bush and whose endorsement is often trumpeted by McCain, said on Thursday that the Alaska governor is not only unprepared to take over the job on a moment’s notice but, even after some time in office, would only amount to an “adequate” commander in chief.

“And I devoutly hope that [she] would never be tested,” he added for good measure — referring both to Palin’s policy dexterity and the idea of McCain not making it through his time in office.

Oh well what does he know anyway!

But the NY Times adds this sour note about La Palin:

A growing number of voters have concluded that Senator John McCain’s running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, is not qualified to be vice president, weighing down the Republican ticket in the last days of the campaign, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Here in Canada our Conservative PM just appointed a 41 yr old woman to be Minister of Health, the biggest budget in this government. I read this morning that she is from the north, Nunavut Territory, ambitious and “tough”.

Does this mean that we may have our own Inuit version of La Palin? Who needs that?
