Plumbing The Depths

The press has not demanded Barack Obama's medical records. They haven't demanded his college records. They haven't demanded his Illinois Senate records. They haven't demanded records about his low mortgage rate. They haven't demanded records on his links to corrupt financier Tony Rezko. They haven't demanded transcripts of sermons Rev Wright gave while Obama was in the pews. They haven't demanded a list of his legal clients. They haven't demanded records of his work and links to terrorist Bill Ayers.

Anything I missed?

So many questions about a candidate with one of the most unknown track records in US history.

And yet the McCain campaign is being inundated with demands for DNA samples to prove if Sarah Palin's son Trig is really hers.

In an extraordinary and emotional interview, [McCain campaign manager] Steve Schmidt said his campaign feels "under siege" by wave after wave of news inquiries that have questioned whether Palin is really the mother of a 4-month-old baby, whether her amniotic fluid had been tested and whether she would submit to a DNA test to establish the child's parentage.

Since the announcement on Friday the MSM has been engaged in nothing short of a smear campaign to assassinate the character of Sarah Palin. I would hope that the McCain campaign makes a big deal of these preposterous partisan demands- because I'm sure that the average American voter will be disgusted by it.
