Families Are Off Limits
We have heard much talk about families being off limits. Much of this is due to some of the issues surrounding Palin's family. Whether or not one can talk about Palin's daughter or not, I don't know. However, I believe the whole thing, as far as McCain is concerned, is a bit hypocritical. Is this the same McCain who famously said at a GOP fundraiser "Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?" The punchline is that she is ugly because Janet Reno is her father. McCain said this back in 1998, about the sitting President's daughter. So ask a few questions about Palin's daughter (which may or may not reveal some of the character flaws of Palin herself) and we are told it is inappropriate. But attack a teenager's looks, and the Republicans think that's just good old wholesome fun.
