Washington Post:
Exclusive: Chief Fired by Palin Speaks Out  —  The July firing of Alaska Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan by Gov. Sarah Palin, who was announced as John McCain's running mate on Friday, has unearthed a stream of soap-opera-like details about Palin, her husband, her family and top state appointees.
Gail Collins / New York Times:

William Yardley / New York Times:
Palin, an Outsider Who Charms  —  Her father shot the grizzly bear whose hide is now draped over the sofa in her office.  She, too, hunts and fishes.  She runs marathons.  She delivered her fifth child during her first term as governor.  They call her husband, the reigning champion …

Jonathan Martin / Jonathan Martin's Blogs:
Obama tiptoes around Palin in new ad  —  They may have run the “Bush is still is his running mate” ad regardless of who McCain picked, but this spot from Obama's camp reflects just how careful they're now playing the Palin selection.  —  Unlike what Team McCain had with Biden, there are no obvious video or soundbites to use.

David Frum:
Palin  —  The longer I think about it, the less well this selection sits with me.  And I increasingly doubt that it will prove good politics.  The Palin choice looks cynical.  The wires are showing.  —  John McCain wanted a woman: good.  —  He wanted to keep conservatives and pro-lifers happy: naturally.

Three Words  —  Think about what the Palin pick really says about how McCain views this campaign and how he views his potential responsibilities in national security.  —  Think about what it says about the sincerity of McCain's own central criticism of Obama these past two months in foreign affairs.
