I FIND all the rumours and gossip about Sarah Palin and her family distinctly nauseating. I do not share Ms Palin’s politics and it seems to me she holds enough controversial views in areas like gun control, abortion and gay rights to be put under the media spotlight and made to explain them. That’s what election campaigns are for.
But what is all this nonsense about the paternity of her youngest son, Trig? Why are bloggers, and even the mainstream media, trespassing on her personal family life in this way without, it seems, any reasonable factual evidence to stand up their story?
If she chooses to make a public statement, fair enough. If some enterprising sleuth comes up with the silver bullet in the form of incontrovertible evidence, then sure, the Governor will have some explaining to do. Even then, I’m not sure it would be anyone’s business.
For crying out loud, the woman wants to overturn Roe v Wade! Isn’t that interesting or controversial enough for people? This is election year – let’s debate… I don’t know, how about… politics?
