McCain and Palin’s Red Herring

Sarah Palin’s 17-year-old daughter is going to have a baby? Yeah, yeah. They say the news was released to put down lefty rumors that Palin was claiming a baby as her own so she wouldn’t have to admit her teen daughter got pregnant.

Get the Daily Kos people on the phone, because my theory is that’s all just a red herring to throw the media off the real scandal. I call it “Salmongate”: Sarah Palin was once busted for fishing without a license!

This is unbelievable news, and the McCain campaign will be singing a different tuna from now on. There hasn’t been a similar scandal involving a VP nominee since Muskie.

Democrat bloggers also have a great new headline that isn’t even a lie: “Sarah Palin was a hooker!”

Update: The left will probably fall into a spastic lib-fit when they read about the father of Bristol Palin’s baby:

Doe-eyed Bristol Palin, 17, and ruggedly handsome Levi Johnston, an 18-year-old self-described “f—in’ redneck,” have been dating a year, locals in Wasilla, Alaska, told the Daily News.

The GOP’s chances in November are better than ever.
