Here's the latest revelation by McCain's campaign: Palin's daughter is pregnant. It pretty much means this is baby number one, but it begs the question: how long will Palin last as VP? She supports abstinence-only education, yet her very own daughter has a baby at 17 out of wedlock. She thinks a fetus has more rights than a woman who was raped, yet would avoid hospitals for more than a dozen hours while in labor - all to give a keynote speech in Texas, then fly to Alaska, then skip Anchorage hospitals for driving 45 more minutes to get to a backwater clinic. That's truly a Britney Spears-like moment (since the McCain campaign likes making Britney comparisons).
I don't like peddling in mud - this is really a first for this blog - but there's too much at stake and, unlike the Swiftboaters, this stuff is actually true. Something fishy was going on and now it's out in the open. Not that this is anything new, but there's Republicans being hypocritical.
Here's the question, though: It's Republican Convention Week. Now's the time for them to throw her under the bus. Will she last the week? The over/under is 7 days. I'm saying under.
Update: 2 more thoughts. VP nominee Romney is almost inevitable at this point & this is Harriet Miers all over again. Thanks, McCain.
