Palin Agonistes II

It seems we might have a Thomas Eagleton moment brewing.
In this afternoon’s New York Times story on the Sarah Palin (R) insanity today was this sentence:

Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina said that he had heard no discussion about removing Ms. Palin from the ticket.

Sometimes, it’s the questions being asked that are more important than the answers.

Expect the drumbeat to get louder as the media starts doing the vetting the McCain campaign didn’t bother to do.

If McCain should drop her - a move that I find highly doubtful, but anything could happen at this point - expect the entire episode to become a talking point in his favor, rather than another mark against his judgment.
