There is a lot of chatter from the media class on whether or not Sarah Palin was properly vetted or not.
The question the media should ask is; does their definition of a vetting process differ from the McCain's campaign definition?
Media outlet after media outlet are reporting on:
Fishing permit violation,
Teenage daughter's pregnancy,
Child custody battle of a relative.
That is what appears to be the vetting process of the media and / or the opposition.
Perhaps possibly the McCain campaign put more emphasis on her governing capabilities and background, which is what should really count.
Everything else just shows her family experiences real life struggles just like many other average families. Many Americans will be able to relate to her life, as opposed to the political elite of other candidates.
For the moment, the opposition has acheived its objective; to divert attention from the campaign issues where McCain had clearly pulled even with Obama, to other less important issues.
