The Sarah Palin Family Rumors

If you spend more than five minutes a day browsing the news or blogs on-line, you’ve seen them. They prove one thing to me:

The PUMAs and the right wing politicos and religionists do not have an exclusive hold on using innuendo and conjecture as political weapons. The fervor of some of the anti-Obama bulls**t being spread in blogs and by email is now being equaled by much of the anti-Palin/McCain vitriol.

This kind of ugliness- from whatever quarter it emanates- says much less about its object of scorn than it does about the persons who are so anxious to pick such stuff up in the first place and spread it.

To quote special counsel Joseph Welch during the Army-McCarthy Senate hearings in 1954:

“You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”
