You Only Need 617 Votes to Be Mayor of Wasilla

Columnist Dermot Cole, writing in the Fairbanks, Alaska Daily News Miner says it plain and simple:

"Sarah Palin’s chief qualification for being elected governor of Alaska was that she was not Frank Murkowski.

"... She did not win because of her conservative credentials, her grasp of policy details or because of her track record as the mayor of Wasilla, an office she won in 1996 by collecting 617 votes.

"... in no way does her year-and-a-half as governor of Alaska qualify her to be vice president or president of the United States."
