Republican columnists unhappy with Sarah Palin

Republican Collumnists unhappy with Sarah Palin, to put it mildly.

In August David Frum writes: Palin the irresponsible choice?

But the selection of Sarah Palin invites the question: How serious can he be if he would place such a neophyte second in line to the presidency? Barack Obama at least balanced his inexperience with Mr. Biden's experience. What is Mr. McCain doing?

In September George Will wrote: Impulse, Meet Experience
But is there any evidence that she has thought about such matters? McCain's selection of her is applied McCainism -- a visceral judgment by one who is confidently righteous. But the viscera are not the seat of wisdom.

Then David Brooks wrote:
She has not been engaged in national issues, does not have a repertoire of historic patterns and, like President Bush, she seems to compensate for her lack of experience with brashness and excessive decisiveness

After Palin's interview with Charles Gibson followed by her appearance with Katie Couric, Katleen Parker Writes: Palin Problem, Shes Out of her League

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.

Watch a clip of Palin's interview with Couric and see what you think.
