Palin's daughter

Maybe its just that I am from NZ but the situation with Palin's (the Republican VP candidate) daughter seems like a vote winner (not that she would intentionally subject her children to that sort of thing). And quite a significant one.

First, Palin has a few skeletons in her closet and it provides good cover - I note that NZ news at least only mentioned her daughter - while I know there are other things worth talking about that are much mroe relevant (trouper gate and her previous membersip of a secesionist organization not to mention actual POLICY).

But he main reason is that it says nothing bad at all about her personally (even if you think it does about her daughter - you aren't voting for her daughter) and causes a lot of people on the left to wonder if they are going too far and to start to look at others on the left sideways.

One of the lefts problems has always been the difficulty in keeping the far left under control - for example I think Mike Moore despite his best efforts was probably a component in Bush wining the election against Kerry.
