Josh Marshall reminds us that the Palin pregnant-daughter scandal/saga/soap opera has been relentlessly pushed by, of all people, the McCain campaign. Having a Christian-Right Republican politician's daughter pregnant and out-of-wedlock is now great news and a focus of the campaign. And the boy that knocked the girl up? He appears today in a photo-op with McCain, and he's scheduled to appear on the stage of the RNC.
That does it. John McCain is either a comedy mastermind or the single worst candidate in the history of American politics.
My new theory is that John McCain is a Manchurian Candidate, but instead of Communist China, he was kidnapped by circus clowns.
