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.

The media beasts have sought to put the Palin family on trial. It is the media themselves who are on trial but they are too arrogant to realize it.

We still don’t have a birth certificate for Oblahblah, but the Palins must “submit” to DNA testing:

Un-freaking-believable.

Unfortunately, the Rabid Left happens to be very entrenched in most neighborhoods in America. They also are truly entrenched in the media. These folks have been saying and doing these repulsive things for years, and they seem to just get stronger.

Of interest to you, simply because MSM reporters and outlets are demanding such things.

These ridiculous demands are going to cause one huge backlash for the McCain-Palin ticket.

Prayers lifted for the Palin family so that they will find strength in their family and that they will embrace each other tightly in the face of all this trash from the leftist media.

This kind of garbage antics will do nothing but ignite a firestorm among voters.

This is the time for McCain to show his brass.

He can make them, and the Messiah they are working for, look like silly partisan fools and not worth considering (or voting for).

Can he, will he? Or will he play nice, be considerate, and work the “other side” of the aisle?

The MSM / Drive-by media seems to always manage to find a new low. They’ve done it again. This is simply evil.

This, the trashing of Governor Palin, is the lowest I have ever seen the Left and the Media (same thing) stoop. Sickening. Infuriating. Unbelievable.

I think that they should offer a DNA test in return for the following from Obama:

1) An AIDS test
2) his legal Birth Certificate
3) All the documents published from his work with Ayers and the University in Chicago
4) A drug test

Sounds like a fair trade...

Did you see Newt eat MSNBC’s Ron Allen lunch for him? Allen questioned Palin’s experience. Newt compared Palin and Obama then challenged Allen to name one thing that Obama has done. Beautiful!

What we really need to see is a bona fide birth certificate for Obama.

Obviously, her family isn't running for office, but why let logic or reason interfere with PDS? These sorry excuses for human beings wouldn't believe the truth if they were in the delivery room and watched the birth with their own eyes. It must be horrible to be so hate-filled AND stupid. We should pray for them that they come to their senses - and of course for Gov Palin and her family for strength to withstand this. Especially for Bristol, my God, she's just a teenager and she had a lot to deal with before the media onslaught.

I am a fervent supporter of the 1st Amendment, and all of the rest of our Constitution, but this stuff is really beyond anything I’ve ever seen or expected. The selection of Palin for the ticket has got to be viewed to be so very potent by the Dims to cause such incredibly blatant ignorance. That we are seemingly powerless to prevent this trash from being spewed out is simply galling beyond belief.

I’m Canadian, but...how do I donate to the McCain/Palin campaign? I’m serious, anyone got the details?

I think it's illegal for McCain to accept foreign money, but Al Gore may know some impoverished monks who will launder it for you.

“Unfortunately, the Rabid Left happens to be very entrenched in most neighborhoods in America.”

Starting in the mid-to-late 60’s the left concentrated on local elections, libraries, schools, and colleges. Plus professional orgs, and the like.

Now we slowly are waking up.

That’s why it’s important to vote even if the only office is dogcatcher and it’s uncontested.

I feel like I’m living in an alternate universe. I knew the drive by’s were disgusting, but this is just insane...... every time I think they’ve reached a new low something like this pops up.

I think Gov. Palin needs to use part of her speech, coming up, to stand up for her family and totally obliterate the drive by’s.

What she needs to do is volunteer to submit for a DNA test, then provide the birth certificate ON THE CONDITION that Obama show us his. AND then demand he tell the truth that is IS Muslem and he IS an Indonesian Citizen.

Schmidt also said reporters are demanding to see the birth certificate for Palin's newborn.

Obama still hasn't released his. What his campaign released was a "summary" of the actual birth certificate ( even the validity of that is in question ). The actual birth cert is on record in the archives in Hawaii. It contains not only what is on the summary, but the parents signatures and hospital of birth. Of course that is corroborating evidence . It would list the hospital which would in turn have their own records. By the MSM just ignores that little fact.

That’s a depressing thought. I know that they’ve been in control of public education for decades now and are pushing their agenda there, but I was hoping that enough Americans still care enough about their country to be disgusted.

If we don’t win this fall, it’s going to be tough.

The presstitutes and their editors should have to pee in a bottle when they write their tripe - with the drug test results prominently displayed beneath each headline.

Remember how the Nazis treated the Jews? Now the Leftist Separatist Nazi media is acting just like the Gestapo acted towards the Jews. Brown shirts rioted in Saint Paul, and the Obama/Ayers connection, posting Sarah Palins SSN, and even investigating her library account. I think the real chickens have come home to roost. If Obama appears in a starched brown uniform soon, I will not be surprised
