Posted on 09/02/2008 8:04:10 PM PDT by kristinn
McCain presidential campaign strategist Steve Schmidt went on the record with the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz today, revealing the depths to which the mainstream media has sunk in their efforts to destroy the family of Republican vice presidential pick Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Schmidt said that the campaign has been deluged with demands from reporters that the Palin family submit to DNA testing to assuage baseless rumors promulgated by the Democratic party's favorite website, the Daily Kos.
Schmidt accused the media of being "on a mission to destroy" Sarah Palin.
Kurtz writes that Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the Daily Kos, believes the made up allegations against Palin and her daughter are legitimate. Kurtz fails to note that Moulitsas writes for the Post's sister publication, Newsweek.
Schmidt also said reporters are demanding to see the birth certificate for Palin's newborn.
The news media is treading on dangerous ground with their despicable behavior regarding the Palin family. They are arousing an anger in Americans all across the country who see themselves in the Palin family and are beyond outrage over how they have been trashed.
Dems would know a lot about DNA!
I wanna see one for Obama.
Print and publish ALL the NAMES of the lowlifes. Publicize them, so they can be shunned and ostracized.
Lord have mercy. May God return to these people what they are trying to put on others. May the decency of the American people rise up and condemn this dispicable nonsense, and protect and reward the innocent.
Got any e-mail addresses, for those 'reporters'?
Who are these despicable people that they think they have the RIGHT to such personal information? Her family isn’t running for office, she is! This is completely outrageous.
I am seriously pissed.
What's the point.
The governor would just have had it altered to reflect whatever she wanted it to say.
Based upon what I’m seeing, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem for some of them.
Someone needs to slam these idiots hard and publicly.
The MSM are traitors. They are vile. They are beneath contempt.
HEY MSM SCUM! You can have a sample of my DNA. I’ll send it to you in some wadded up kleenex!
Civil War II needs to start sooner than I thought....
She doesn’t have to take it, but she can. When the test comes back that Trig is her son, the liberals will look extremely foolish. That will be a plus for her and McCain.
Are you aware Obama’s mother was a few months pregnant with him prior to marrying his father?
This is getting silly. I think it will cause one heck of a backlash. They must be very disturbed by this pick. It sounds like McCain did a great job picking her.
Schmidt needs to reveal the names of these slugs.
