Kathryn Lopez Cannot Believe that John McCain Would Be So Stupid...

...as to choose a totally unvetted and unqualified running mate. And she hopes to preserve her disbelief by refusing to take in any more information:

Kathryn Jean Lopez on National Review Online: I absolutely refuse to watch another Sarah Palin interview....

I cringe a little.... I don’t know Sarah Palin... a lot of what I like about her could be projection. I’m not where my friend Kathleen Parker is — wanting her to step aside to spend more time with her family and Alaska — but that’s not a crazy suggestion....

My guess... on nothing but hope... is that Sarah Palin just needs some freedom.... She looks like a woman who’s been cramming talking points and great Matt Scully lines and Mark Salter-McCain war stories and Steve Schmidt marching orders into her head since that first plane ride from Alaska. She looks like a woman who has ceased being the confident, successful executive who got herself elected governor of Alaska without the full force of her party behind her.... People love Sarah Palin when they see her.... If Sarah Palin is John McCain’s secret weapon, let her go, whoever is holding her back.... [I]f it turns out that the “authentic” Palin of rallies and the Republican convention is just good speech delivery in a woman with some good spirit, I want to know that sooner rather than later...

Doesn't the fact that the McCain campaign is so careful to keep her under wraps tell you what the answer is?

John McCain is simply not qualified to be president.
