It's About The Vetting

I support you raising the questions. Had the McCain campaign vetted this candidate, they probably would have found these rumors long ago. They apparently have been swirling in AK for a while now. The story of her flying back to AK from TX while in labor is just very odd. In fact, as a woman, I find it totally not credible, but if true, it was reckless. Her pregnancy, given her age, is high-risk even if she wasn't birthing a baby with special needs.

Shame on McCain for not having done his homework. I can't imagine any candidate for POTUS selecting someone with an open corruption investigation especially when the final report is due a few days before the election.

If McCain had vetted her, the Internet wouldn't have to. And this would be a private matter if the McCain-Palin campaign hadn't made the baby a key campaign point. Once they made it a reason to vote for someone, it's reasonable for bloggers to ask questions about it, especially when there are so many strange twists to the story. But, look: I hope this isn't true, and it can easily be disproved quickly. I'll immediately post any evidence that answers the questions.
