The Next Email You Will Get From Your Liberal Friends

Will be about Sarah Palin not being the mother of her son, Trig. The Kossacks are already circulating claims that the baby is the son of her 16 year-old daughter, Bristol. In interviews with People Magazine and USA Today, Palin discusses finding out that Trig had Downs Syndrome and how she prepared herself for it. In both stories, she talks about her doctor giving her the news and in one story, she talks about the amniocenteses used to diagnose the baby. So this should be a relatively easy story to debunk - give access to the test results and to the doctor.

This will also be a relatively easy thing for the McCain campaign to fumble by saying these results and conversations are covered by patient confidentiality, which will make it look like they are hiding something.

If this is an issue, just get it over now, deal with it and select someone else. If it is not an issue, save it, let the pressure build up, let the Obama campaign embrace it, and in October, release the results, show that the kid is hers and then hammer away on the left wing nutjobs who started the rumor and the Obama campaign that ran with it.

Eat This Ahmadinejad!!!

WOW! Color Me Impressed

McCain picks Sarah Palin as his VP. Not many people saw that coming, but in a game where your goal is to be the leader of the free world, sometimes you gotta throw it deep. I watched her speech and can't find a lot wrong (the glass ceiling comment was brilliant - give that speech writer a raise). I like the pick and she makes a good first impression. Hopefully, the vetting process was thorough. The Hillary forums are all abuzz. Lots of people thanking John McCain. 67 days to the election and this one just became more historic that it was last night.

Protest Blogging

Before last week, I pretty much expected to avoid any contact with the DNC. However, I realized last week that my office in the Tech Center is right across the street from many hotels where the delegates may be staying. Then I heard that the protesters were planning to block the delegates from leaving the hotels. All of a sudden, I thought, "Maybe I can get some good footage of riot police and tear gas." I brought my camera and video camera to work hoping to see something you don't see everyday. Of course, this morning, when I got to work, nothing. No protests, no riot police, no tear gas. Based on the numbers from the protesters downtown this weekend, I guess I should have known that this will be no Chicago '68. Even the people in my office that live north of downtown and had to drive past the "Secure area" said that traffic was lighted than normal this morning. We'll see how the week progresses, but it looks to be a fairly tame start to the DNC.
