What would Palin do?
I find it interesting that the letter "Palin's good sense" (May 30) implies that Sarah Palin could handle the following: Iran's nuclear capabilities, North Korea's aggression, the war on terror, open borders, illegal immigration, two wars, etc. Please tell me what Palin, who bailed on Alaska, would do in these situations. I'm waiting to hear.
You can be sure of that
Lori Cohen said she was "waiting to hear" (What would Plain do?, Letters, June 6) what would Sarah Palin do about Iran's nuclear capabilities, North Korea's aggression, the war on terror, open borders, illegal immigration, two wars, etc.
Four little words: More than Obama has.
Can I say, all humor aside, Mr. Grover, his sentiments, and those he is aligned with, scare me half to death? He and his line of thinking is so misguided. I don't know if her supporters have noticed, but Half-Governor Palin hasn't done anything. She talks of reloading and writes crib notes on the palm of her hand. She virtually admitted to the "perky one" (Katie Couric that she doesn't read, yet made millions on a book she didn't write. It is true she went from a sportscaster to a pundit for cable TV. So did Keith Olbermann. One ran for and was elected to public office in between TV gigs. One did not. One is more knowledgeable than the other. Mr. Grover may be right. Mrs. Palin may indeed do "more" than Obama has. But more does not mean better. Her foreign policy experience is limited to be able to see Russia from her kitchen window (where Joe McGuiness can now see in). If her response to Mr. McGuiness is any indication, I'd hate to see what "more" she would do with our border situation. And, though I shudder at the very thought of her attempting international diplomacy with the likes of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Kim Jong Il, it may be first-dude Todd, that shadowy omnipresent thug who might actually scare me more. As I say, Mr. Grover, be careful for what you wish for.
