Republican jitters over Palin

A fast trickle of details have been coming to light that are worrying the Republicans . . .

These include news that Todd Palin belonged to the radical Alaska Nationalist Party, that the Governor hired a lawyer to defend her in an ethics inquiry ordered by the state legislature and that, as mayor of Wasilla, she hired a lobbyist in Washington to steer so-called "earmarks"—gifts of federal money—to her town, a practice especially favoured by Alaskans that has been derided by Mr McCain.
