First off, apologies for not posting sooner. I've been extremely busy the last few days, but I'm back and ready to cover the convention.
I was going to rebut the disgusting rumor that Trig Palin is actually the governor's grandson by her daughter Bristol, but the campaign beat me to the punch. A statement released today announced that Bristol is in fact pregnant, but is currently five months along and hence could not have possibly had Trig in April. So, I think we just need to let the entire Palin family (especially Bristol) know that they have our movement's complete support going forward. The McCain campaign knew of the pregnancy before Gov. Palin was put on the ticket, so this is unlikely to become an issue; and if it does, it will probably have a positive impact rather than a negative one. So, this is the last I intend to say about this issue as the Palin family has rightfully requested that their daughter's privacy be respected.
Now, on a slightly lighter note. We now have our first evidence of an apoplectic left wing celebrity engaging in a rant against the entire State of Alaska. Rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs (aka. "Puff Daddy", "P. Diddy") has released a profanity laced video in which he attacks Palin, stating that Palin is unqualified simply because she is from Alaska. He asserts that Alaska is different than the rest of the country due to a total lack of "black people", crime, and "crackheads". Apparently, he has seen one too many reruns of "Northern Exposure". His screed is not only ill-informed, but also bigoted and mean-spirited. He owes the people of Alaska an apology, specifically the state's black community, which does in fact exist. I will be placing a call shortly to the Anchorage chapter of the NAACP to see if I can get any reaction (or perhaps get them to extend an invitation to Diddy to visit Alaska and apologize). I'll update you on the results of that call.
Have a great Labor Day!
