Maybe They Were Right

McCain's campaign has declared war on the Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan, merely for asking for confirmation that Trig Palin is indeed Sarah Palin's biological son. The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz, acting as the axeman for McCain, takes Sullivan to task for asking for confirmation that Trig is indeed Sarah Palin's son, not, as has been rumored, Bristol's child. The Weekly Standard's Jonathan Last has also chimed in, saying that "it is a disgrace for the magazine and everyone associated with it. One hundred and fifty years of storied history set ablaze in fortnight by a single writer."

Seems to me that this is a lot of outcry over a supposedly settled issue. And where there's smoke, there's often fire. Of course, considering Palin's crash-and-burn performance with Katie Couric the other night, maybe the McCain camp needs any excuse they can get to remove her from the ticket.
