McCain Campaign: News Media Demanding DNA Testing of Palin Family
Tuesday, September 2, 2008 | Kristinn

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.

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.

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.

What's the point.

The governor would just have had it altered to reflect whatever she wanted it to say.

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?

Why? Are they concerned that Trig isn't eligible to run for President?

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.

What vermin these supposedly “neutral” reporters are! Their disgraceful conduct in this affair further discredits them and puts yet another nail in the MSM coffin. In the end, their dishonesty and lack of professionalism will trigger a wave of sympathy for Pallin. I hope they keep it up.

***Kurtz writes that Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the Daily Kos, believes the made up allegations against Palin and her daughter are legitimate. ***

Well, it’s simple, really. If baby Trig is Bristol’s and Trig is 4 months old, then Bristol is a scientific MIRACLE if she is now 7 months pregnant! That would mean she was 3 months pregant when she had Trig. Anybody with even a minute amount of brain power can see that this is all FALSE.

This is going way too far. She and the McCain crew had to know what was going to happen when all this came out. I would think that Sarah already has a plan for the next step.

With the convention going on, all this flack adds to the attention. I am really looking forward to hearing her next speech. Judging from her acceptance speech, I would think she would one-up that one and really nail these spineless weasels to the floor. After all, she has had weeks to put it together.

I am really looking forward to hearing that speech. It's gonna be good.

So can we now expect the MSM to start demanding that the Clintons submit to DNA tests to prove that Webb Hubbell is not Chelsea Clinton’s real father?

Palin has “it” and she is a conservative . That’s why the liberal mainstream media hates her and is scared to death of her. Reagan had “it” too.

Liberals are in full panic mode because the American people are learning about this great woman, Palin. I can’t wait to see her speak at the convention tomorrow . I am so excited!

How dare these socialists/Democrats attack this woman and her children so unfairly and so viciously 24/7 all over the media. Have you no shame , liberals?

The liberals/Democrats/Marxists who run and populate the mainstream media are frightened to death of Palin. They are scared because finally we have a conservative woman who can win and become president and stop the Democrats’ socialist expansion of government.

Palin/Tancredo in 2012

or Tancredo/Palin in 2012

Long live the protector of the U.S. border, the defender of faith and freedom, long live Tom Tancredo!

Long Live Sarah Palin!

The Palins should not say a word. Anything they did say would be turned around so many times anyway. Once Sarah has won, they should pound KOS into the ground and sue the pants off the cretin.

Part of what’s going on is that the left is struggling on just how to discredit Palin. If McCain had selected a black man, their task would have been easy. Whenever a black conservative comes along, they simply dismiss him as being an ‘Uncle Tom’, or ‘Not black enough.’ There is no way, however, they can dismiss Palin as ‘Not woman enough.’ So, they come up with all the crap they can because their usual victimhood / evil republican smears won’t work. And, as with many things, they will overplay their hand and, I think, the MSM is along for the ride. The internet public, however, is smart enough to smell this much crap. They will, indeed, overplay their hand on this one.

These liberals don’t realize that the birth certificate question if totally valid for the one running for office, but has no bearing on any family members of that person.
