Palin should have declined

October 14, 2008

Re "Palin ethics lapse cited," Oct. 11

If Sarah Palin truly were the ethical leader she claims to be, she would have told John McCain: "Thanks, but no thanks, for offering me the bridge to political oblivion. I am not qualified to be your running mate, and I have an ethical investigation hanging over me that could become a liability for your campaign."

As far as McCain is concerned, I wonder if he had those seven houses inspected before he purchased them?

Palin has a lot of nerve trying to influence the firing of public employees. Who does she think she is, the U.S. attorney general?
