She then is alleged to have lied about it when first asked and when confronted with...

Just found a pretty comprehensive article about the matter. The parapgraph that caught my eye and seemed to be another indicator of sloppy vetting by McCain. "Just yesterday, Monegan gave an interview to the Washington Post in which he said that not only Palin's aides, but Palin's husband and Palin herself had repeatedly raised the Wooten issue with him and pressured him to fire him. And now he says he has emails that Palin sent him about the matter. (In an interesting...

Honestly, the baby is a sideshow. Based on the reports in the papers on how the selection process for McCain, it seems he had made a different pick but had to change to satisfy constituents. If this is all there is then he really could make this pick work and win the White House. What I've seen so far is: 1. Unresolved troopergate 2. Supported the bridge then didn't support the bridge 3.
