While I admire Ms. Viorst's intentions, I must say that I am extremely grateful to Ms. Palin for enabling us to watch the more rapid disintegration of the Republican campaign. Had Senator McCain chosen more wisely, we might be in deep trouble. I am also enjoying the vision of watching her self-destruct as we all need some entertainment these days.

So there should be no need to bother the people Viorst mentioned for their honest opinions. As you may have guessed, I will be voting for Senator Obama, who chose his running mate thoughtfully.
