Kathleen Parker Calls for Palin to Step Aside

UPDATE, Sept. 27, 8 p.m. Eastern: More journalists are writing about Palin's future on the GOP ticket.Kathleen Parker in The Narional Review is calling for Palin to step down from the GOP ticket because of her performances with the media.
No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I’ve been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I’ve also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

Only Palin can save McCain, her party, and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first.

Do it for your country.
