Ruh roh:

In this afternoon's New York Times story on the Sarah Palin (R) insanity today was this sentence:

Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina said that he had heard no discussion about removing Ms. Palin from the ticket.

Sometimes, it's the questions being asked that are more important than the answers.

Expect the drumbeat to get louder as the media starts doing the vetting the McCain campaign didn't bother to do. Certainly, membership in a secessionist party doesn't help. Marc Ambinder:

The Alaska Independence Party calls itself the third largest organization in the United States. Its platform calls for the defense of "states rights," to "seek the complete repatriation of the public lands, held by the federal government, to the state and people of Alaska in conformance with Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17, of the federal constitution."

Basically, the AIP wants a vote on secession. According to the organizations' website. "[T]hough it is widely thought to be a secessionist movement, the Party makes great effort to emphasize that its primary goal is merely a vote on secession, something that Party advocates say Alaskans were denied during the founding of the state."

In the meantime, Palin has lawyered up over Troopergate and has yet to teach her family message control:

(Sarah Palin's mother in law) Faye Palin admitted she enjoys hearing Barack Obama speak, and still hasn't decided which way she'll vote. [..]

"I'm not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she's a woman and a conservative. Well, she's a better speaker than McCain," Faye Palin said with a laugh.
