The Associated Press is classy, indeed. They can't even keep sniping at Sarah Palin out of a story announcing the blessed birth of her grandson. Ah, but wait, it gets even more annoying because not only did the AP snipe at Palin in its first birth announcement story, once called on it the AP went back twice to rearrange the piece rewriting history to make it seem as if they never sniped at her in the first place.
Initially, the AP attacked Palin in its very first paragraph saying that daughter Bristol's pregnancy was the thing that caused Palin's candidacy to "go downhill." At 7:20 PM the AP gave us this: (Bold my emphasis)
ANCHORAGE The teenage daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whose quest for the vice presidency began to go downhill the day she announced the pregnancy, has given birth to a son, a magazine reported Monday. Bristol Palin, 18, gave birth to Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Sunday, People magazine reported online. He weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Colleen Jones, the sister of Bristol's grandmother, told the magazine that "the baby is fine and Bristol is doing well."
Downhill? The AP is saying that the daughter's pregnancy is what caused everything to flop? Then, why did Palin's acceptance speech -- a speech that happened days after the pregnancy announcement -- get as many viewers on TV as Obama's historic acceptance speech? Sure it was a momentary controversy, but it had practically no affect on the candidacy.

Actually, I haven’t seen Sarah on TV since the new Senator from Georgia won his election. In fact, they didn’t even announce the birth of the grandson until days after his birth, and didn’t reveal any details of his birth. I don’t see this as a publicity play at all.
You hit the nail on the head!
With integrity, nothing else matters.

Integrity is the natural outgrowth of dignity and humility.
Don’t ever expect the MSM to rejoice in the birth of a child.
All they revel in is death by abortion.
