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.
The second thing to consider is that the federales, state police and others are looking for the perpetrator who burned down the Governor's Wasilla "church" (as distinct from the church she attends at the state capital).
It may fairly be presumed that the perpetrator is an outsider, probably connected to the MSM, and probably arrived there with the investigative crowd last October.
The pursuit of this particular story very far is going to reveal who burned the church, if it hasn't done so yet. I cannot help but notice that it's originally written by a fellow called "Jimmy Orr". He has a long track record of writing about the personal business of Govenor Palin's friends and relatives, if not the Governor herself.
Definitely strikes me as a bit OCD.
Now, anyone know anything else about this Orr guy? Has he visited Alaska in the last week perhaps?
