Nobody in the MSM is paying attention to rumours about a Democrat in the National Enquirer!
The media has different rules for politicians of the Left:
SCRATCH John Edwards off the list of potential vice-presidential candidates… Every supermarket shopper knows that the preternaturally youthful former senator for North Carolina may have fathered a love child with a film-maker while Elizabeth, his saintly wife, is dying of cancer. There are sensational new details on the National Enquirer website, although most of the media have done their best to ignore them…
How dare anyone pay attention to rumours about a Republican in the National Enquirer!
Witch hunts were conducted with more decorum:
John McCain’s campaign threatened legal action against the National Enquirer today for running a story about McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, allegedly having an affair with her husband’s business partner.
The rules certainly are different in somebody’s mind.
