This will be a two-day story at best. With Blago, with the economy, with bailouts, with Christmas, no one cares about this. This woman’s behavior doesn’t reflect at all on Sarah Palin.
You underestimate the staying power in the discourse of the left and the Mediascum, IMHO.
Sure, the headlines may only be for a day or two, but mark my words, it will be worked into the paragraph-long descriptions of Wasill and Sarah Palin’s life there, on blogs, emails, etc. forever after. Nasty things will be said that no one would dare say about a friend of Obama or Rev. Wright etc. because that would be “racist”......
[following is how certain interested parties will portray it]: It will help to further the portrayal of Wasilla as some white-trash hick place where Bristol Palin gets knocked up by the white trash son of a drug dealing mother etc. etc. Not saying that’s fair or reasonable, it certainly should not reflect upon Governor Palin, but the left does not leave out any arrows from their quiver when they want to smear people.
You are totally naive. The MSM will decide the shelf life of this story. If it has legs it could be the trial of the 21st century-don’t bet against the Democrats trying to tie Levi and Bristol with Sherry Johnston’s drug use or supplying drugs. I wouldn’t put anything past by these scumbags.
