Democrats Smearing on All Cylinders

First the kooks on the left ripped a story from the pages of a Desperate Housewives script and alleged Sarah Palin's down syndrome child was not hers (Notice the 1962 comments for a story that has seemingly vanished from the DailyKooks?), but was in fact her daughters and that Palin faked her pregnancy to cover it up. Then they manufactured allegations that she was the member of some Alaskan separatist movement, which was debunked almost immediately. Now there's a new smear appearing just before she's set to take the stage for her much anticipated vice presidential nomination acceptance speech.

“The smearing of the Palin family must end. The allegations contained on the cover of the National Enquirer insinuating that Gov. Palin had an extramarital affair are categorically false. It is a vicious lie,” said McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt.

“The efforts of the media and tabloids to destroy this fine and accomplished public servant are a disgrace. The American people will reject it.”

Fight the smears, indeed.

For those keeping count:

Days for the mainstream media to acknowledge National Enquirer affair story about John Edwards: Nearly 10 months

Days for the mainstream media to acknowledge National Enquirer affair story about Sarah Palin: Less than 1 day

That is weak that the dailykos would remove that story. They felt the story had enough credibility that ABC news ran a story based upon it. Now it is gone. What garbage. These guys are scum.

By media attention you mean the McCain campaign denying the allegation, giving the actual news media something to cover? It's not like there is a convention of Republicans going on right now that pushes these headlines up...oh wait...
