John: It’s really not.
(repeat every 20 minutes or so)
UPDATE: Here’s the thing with this story. Let’s say it’s her baby, and Palin’s not covering for her teenage daughter. After all, I do recognize the absurdity of the allegation (though you have to admit it’s juicy and great fun to consider and discuss). Let’s say Palin gave birth to a special needs child 4 months ago.
Who leaves a 4-month-old – let alone a 4-month-old with Down syndrome – to hit the campaign trail? I’m not talking about a working mom going back to work after maternity leave. That’s tough enough. I’m talking about a woman taking off to jet around the country, diving head first into the grueling schedule of a Presidential campaign.
It gives one great pause.
