'Out of Her League' Palin Must Drop Out
Recent interviews have shown just how out of her depth Sarah Palin is on the national stage, so she should do her party a favor and drop out, Kathleen Parker writes.   (AP Photo)

Her “cringe reflex exhausted,” Kathleen Parker calls for Sarah Palin to drop out of the presidential campaign in a National Review column. “Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League,” writes Parker, only weeks ago a glowing Palin backer.

“As we’ve seen and heard more from John McCain’s running mate, it is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem. Quick study or not, she doesn’t know enough about economics and foreign policy to make Americans comfortable,” Parker continues. “She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first. Do it for your country.”
