Palin's withdrawal from the Republican ticket "a burning question"? With whom?

Andrew Sullivan, who is giving more and more indication that he lives on another planet altogether has a poll at his site asking whether Sarah Palin, who is now more popular than McCain or Obama, should withdraw from the Republican ticket. It is, Sullivan claims, "a burning question."

It is? I'm trying to detect a spark somewhere, but can't seem to find one.

Liberals are panicking now that conservatives are uniting behind McCain/Palin. They think if they act shocked and horrified enough, it will become apparent to the GOP that the only moral thing to do would be to remove Palin from the ticket.

In their defense, the GOP has often given Democrats encouragement along those lines. Was there ever a political party less inclined to fight for a principle than the Republicans?

Traditionally, all Democrats have to do is turn their backs on Republicans and say, "If you do that, we won't like you anymore," and that sends the Surrender Phalanx of the Republican Party into a tizzy.

John McCain has been the head of that phalanx for several years. It's easy to see why the liberals think pouting will help.

Lee is not wrong, but McCain would be a fool to ditch the VP pick who merely by smiling raised $10 million in three days, and who finally has his base energized.

You haven't seen the spark? Come over to my blog, and you'll see commenters with their hair on fire about Sarah Palin.
