Palin's Family is apparently not off limits

There is an item over at TPM

In an election campaign notable for its surprises, Sarah Palin, the Republican vice- presidential candidate, may be about to spring a new one -- the wedding of her pregnant teenage daughter to her ice-hockey-playing fiancé before the November 4 election.

Inside John McCain's campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. "It would be fantastic," said a McCain insider. "You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week."

If this is true then it would be a new low for the McCain campaign. I know McCain loves giant gimmicks but this would be truly outrageous. They are already pushing these two kids together for political purposes but now they want to use them as political props like nothing else in history. This is on top of repeated McCain campaign assertions that the family of Palin is off limits.

I dont advocate attacking the families of candidates but i do advocate attacking the mccai campaign over cynically exploiting children for public gain. I really do hope this is untrue but the fact that it cant be discounted is saying something...


O-le,O-le, O-le, O-le! O-le, O-le!
