Seattle Times letters to the editor

McCain campaign should relax access to Sarah Palin

I am deeply disturbed at how much the John McCain campaign is restricting access to Sarah Palin [“McCain to reform Wall St., Palin says,” News, Sept. 25].

Excluding reporters from her meetings with foreign heads of states, and intentionally limiting them to strictly photos and video, is an intentional attempt to limit the American public’s real understanding of her abilities. They are trying to create images, rather than enable the American public to evaluate her based upon reality.

The American public should not stand for this. Why aren’t we given more direct access to Palin? If she is such a star, what is there to worry about? The public deserves to know whom they are electing, rather than being marketed a highly controlled image. Right now, we are not being given that opportunity.

This is not consistent with Palin promoting herself as being transparent. This is consistent with the Bush administration’s practice of secrecy.

We cannot afford another Bush administration. Learning about them after they are in office is much too late.

— Kirk Barrett, Issaquah
