Unwarranted Palin Belief: Conservative David Frum Suggests That If Palin Proves to Be a Plus For McCain, It Will Be the Result of Luck, NOT the Product of a Measured, Rational Decision

David Frum of National Review, on Sarah Palin the day after her 2008 Republican Convention speech:

From the beginning, the internal controversy (such as it is) over Sarah Palin has been a controversy not about Palin herself, but about John McCain. What kind of a decision-maker is he? How much information and consideration does he bring to bear?

If John McCain gambled on Palin without adequate research and preparation, the fact that he won his gamble does not reassure me very much. Gamblers sometimes do win. But the longer they play, the more they lose.

    mcCain talks a lot about his POW experiences and how they made him more patriotic. But what does that have to do with being President.
