You'd think that as an Athabascan woman, an Alaska Native corporation shareholder and a U.S. Navy vet, I'd be thrilled after John McCain forced Sarah Palin on an unsuspecting electorate.

You'd think that I'd be chanting the "Drill, Baby, Drill" mantra because her pro oil stance would turn our corporations into an Alaskan OPEC and make us very very rich.

Here's what I thought as I watched Palin's juvenile acceptance speech.

"What's wrong with her?"

The answer?

Lots.

Instead of trotting out a well vetted VP hopeful with impeccable credentials, McCain surprised America with someone who refuses to explain:

* How she left Wasilla $20 million in debt.

* Why the Alaska legislature is investigating her for abuse of power.

* How her politics prefer oil profits over people.

* How she blends church and state.

And do we really want a VP who lacks the confidence and experience to meet the press?

What was McCain thinking by betting on a wimp who hides from the media as he gallantly tries to protect her by ordering us journalists to treat her with deference?

Make sure that you send this same memo to Putin, the President of Iran, Bin Laden and whoever else so they will treat her with deference.

Now she knows what it's like to be thrown to the wolves, especially those Alaskan wolves heartlessly hunted by those in helicopters.

Did God tell her to support that?
