Palin Accuses 'Obama/Biden Democrats' of Attacking Her Family, But Campaign Can't Name One

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin sent out a fundraising solicitation today that charged that "the Obama/Biden Democrats have been vicious in their attacks directed toward me, my family and John McCain."I asked spokespeople of the McCain campaign and the Republican National Committee just which "Obama/Biden Democrats" they're referring to.The response I got was that Obama spokesman Mark Bubriski erroneously attacked Palin as a supporter of Pat Buchanan.That's it. That's the evidence.An attack on Palin herself.In other words, they can't name one person affiliated with the Obama-Biden campaign who attacked the Palin family.But she made the charge anyway, to help raise money.Incidentally, in 1998 Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, told the following joke at a Republican fundraiser:"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?" McCain joked about the then-President's then-teenage daughter. "Because her father is Janet Reno."''This is the bad boy,'' he told the New York Times' Maureen Dowd. "It was stupid and cruel and insensitive. I've apologized. I can't take it back. I could give you a whole bunch of excuses, but there are no excuses. I was wrong, but do you want me crucified? How many days does it need to be a story?'"Now THAT is attacking someone's family!- jpt
