Vet the candidate? What’s her pets got to do with it?

Today’s letters column in The New York Times features several writers making excellent points about McCain’s selection of Palin for VP. I especially liked the points raised by John Jeffries Martin, Ginny Blanford, Claire Bushey, and Pam Arnold. And Milwaukee’s own Ellen Bravo points out that even if it’s less likely that Palin’s ability to spend adequate time with her children would have come up with a male candidate, the policies she and McCain endorse regarding sex education, childcare, and family leave only make it harder for families with fewer resources.
