I'm not a fan of Sarah Palin. Having said that, I think it will be immensely unfair of the McCain Campaign and the GOP if they scapegoat her. After all, they plucked her out of Alaska as a relative novice, subjected her to brutal mocking by SNL and other media ('subjected her to' may be too affirmative; more like exposed her to it...knowing how brutal politics can be), and now seem to be suggesting that they will scapegoat her. If they do this, it will reinforce my impression that the modern Republican Party being a party of the past and about hatred and blame, rather than the future and improving things and looking for common sense solutions. They need to cut out the criticism of Palin on the right now after using her for their intended purposes.
