It's a trap!

Ok, I'm starting to think that McCain did vet Palin, and did know about this "scandal" with her daughter's pregnancy... and the liberal blogosphere is stepping straight into a glue trap by engaging this story. tjic's summary of the political situation we face rings true to me, here... and it's a completely predictable reaction from everything McCain should have known, when it was time to make his choice.

Don't be creeps, folks. Remember, we're "pro-choice," not "pro-abortion". Making light of this situation puts us in that latter camp in many people's minds.

I think the only reason this is 'news' is because the media needs something to prattle on about.

Any sane Lefties have already just shrugged the whole situation off. I hope. I have at least.

It seems such a non relevant bullet point to be attacking her with. There's plenty of ammo to use elsewhere.

Sorry, this is mostly a response to several self-congratulatory kinds of posts I've seen around various blogs I read, including the LJ of a friend or two...

And I'm really confused about what this means for our chances come November. So I'm obsessing a little while I'm still on vacation.

Yeah. I see what you mean now. :) I've been seeing similar posts elsewhere too.

Well. I was 'hoping' that this would roll off people's backs.

As is usual, the Republican Party has superb message discipline, whereas Democrats stress. ;)

Sometimes a horrendous mistake really is a horrendous mistake. I called Palin as a bad choice before Friday, so I don't feel like I'm just dogpiling on whoever McCain picked. Huckabee would have scared the living crap out of me.
