The New York Daily News is quoting Sarah Palin’s mother-in-law as less than certain about this veep stuff:

Faye Palin said the entire family was shocked by the news on Friday. “I’m not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she’s a woman and a conservative. Well, she’s a better speaker than McCain,” Faye Palin said with a laugh. “People will say she hasn’t been on the national scene long enough. But I believe she’s a quick study.”

The Alaska newspapers, by the way, are NOT impressed.
