What do you REALLY want to know about Sarah Palin?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

I've been accused of being unfair to Sarah Palin. Of thinking that her biography mattered. Perhaps we should go with the apology of Roger Simon:

On behalf of the media, I would like to say we are sorry.

On behalf of the elite media, I would like to say we are very sorry. 

We have asked questions this week that we should never have asked. 

We have asked pathetic questions like: Who is Sarah Palin? What is her record? Where does she stand on the issues? And is she is qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency? 

We have asked mean questions like: How well did John McCain know her before he selected her? How well did his campaign vet her? And was she his first choice?

Bad questions. Bad media. Bad.

It is not our job to ask questions. Or it shouldn’t be. To hear from the pols at the Republican National Convention this week, our job is to endorse and support the decisions of the pols.

Perhaps all we really need to know is where she stands on the issues. However, according to Nicole Wallace of the McBush McCain campaign, we are never going to know that. Because Nicole Wallace says that the American people just don't care about things like that. (I only wish I were making this up, but there's art.)

You're all high information voters - what do you think?
