    it wouldn't surprise me that the same people are pushing it, pissed off rethugs b/c their pick didn't got to be the VP.

    there is no there there, a lot play with pictures dates and innuendo, could it be possible? maybe, likely? not really, a hand over in secret to a surrogate family or adoption through several cut outs make more political sense

    By the reactions of the AK GOP Palin is disliked a LOT.

    I don't want the Dems to be accused of pushing it either

    •  So long as Dems don't touch it (0+ / 0-)

      it almost doesn't matter if it's true or not, as it just casts doubt on her on the demo that she was most picked to lock down, the fundies. In any case, once the "cute and perky family values gal" meme starts to wear thin and people realize just how radically far-right AND inexperienced she is AND a tool of big oil despite the "reformist" head fakes, her standing among swing voters--whom McCain cannot win without and are the other big demo that she was meant to win over--will go down, as will their estimation of Mr. "Ready to Lead", for the extremely poor judgement that it will prove him to possess.

      Of course, this will depend a lot on how Obama & surrogates (both official and self-appointed) deal with this. They need to just chip away at her qualifications and beliefs, while praising her as a nice person, blah blah blah. She needs to be cast as everyone's nice and likeable but slightly nutty and dim next door neighbor (i.e. your typical gun-loving, science-rejecting, SUV-driving exurban Repub fundie).

    •  Muslim smears are hurting Obama (0+ / 0-)

      and this babygate will hurt her too unless she can effectively deny it (DNA test?)

      I don't think it will hurt Dems as long as they maintain an "official" distance from it.

      •  thays is exactly my point (0+ / 0-)

        like BHO she will be forced to deal with this crap sooner or later, and there always be people that will not believe the denials

        DNA? science? are you kidding?
