“Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno.”
“I have said before, and I will repeat again: People’s families are off-limits,” Obama said. “And people’s children are especially off-limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18, and how a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn’t be a topic of our politics.”
Yet even with this background, the McCain campaign has the nerve to accuse Democrats of unfairly making an issue of Palin’s family, even as they parade her family (including the young fiance and father-to-be) before cameras and make her family a centerpiece of her acceptance speech.
UPDATE: I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed. It’s nice to see that some in the media are starting to notice that the McCain campaign is feeding them total bullshit.
