GOP and Troopergate

Is the GOP worried about Troopergate turning into an October Surprise?:
"The Alaska state senator running an investigation of Gov. Palin says the McCain campaign is using stall tactics to prevent him from releasing his final report by Oct. 31, four days before the November election.

"It's likely to be damaging to the Governor's administration," said Senator Hollis French, a Democrat, appointed the project manager for a bi-partisan State Senate Legislative Counsel Committee investigation of claims that Palin abused her office to get the Alaska public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, fired.

Palin, who has denied any wrongdoing and has said she has nothing to hide, hired private lawyers on Saturday, the day after Sen. McCain announced her as his running mate." (emphasis mine)

Again, why her? Could they not have found someone without so much baggage?

This speaks horrifying volumes about McCain -- not only his judgment, but his malleability and inability to stand up to the religious right. We could be watching an the implosion of a party.
