Worst Palin smear yet. How low can Dems go?

Just when you think the Dems can’t stoop any lower in their campaign to destroy the reputation and public career of Alaska’s Gov. Sarah Palin, along comes a smear worse than the one before.

This now from Politico - - -

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate "whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

Palin is an opponent of abortion rights and gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, earlier this year after finding out during her pregnancy that the baby had Down syndrome.

Fowler told my colleague Alex Burns in an interview that the selection of an opponent of abortion rights would not boost McCain among many women.

“Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him,” she said.

Told of McCain's boost in the new ABC/Washington Post among white women following the Palin pick, Fowler said: "Just anecdotally, I believe that those white women are Republican women anyway."


You can’t make it up, can you?

My previous post dealt with one of Obama’s media flacks, Newsweek’s Eleanor Clift, who was worried the Dems’ were too “high-mind[ed].”

Here’s a real worry every American concerned with fair treatment of political candidates ought to have: We’ve not seen the worst yet of what the Dems are going to throw at Palin.

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Fowler, is the wife of Donald Fowler, who was video taped laughing about Hurricane Gustav the first day of the RNC. You can view the video on ‘You Tube’- ‘Foul Don Fowler Amused by New Orleans Hurricane’

These two foul creatures make a gruesome twosome that clearly displays how low the Democrats will go.

John -

The Democrats are getting absolutely unhinged by Gov. Palin. All she has to do is keep smiling and they are all going to go catatonic.

Chairwoman Fowler has already apologized. Her comments were not only offensive, she sounded like a loon.
''I personally admire and respect the difficult choices that women make everyday, and I apologize to anyone who finds my comment offensive,'' Fowler said in a statement.''I clumsily was making a point about people in South Carolina who may vote based on a single issue.''

Dittoes to Jack in Silver Spring. The Dems are in their pre-catatonic phase right now. We call it PDS -- Palin Derangement Syndrome. After they have worked themselves into utter hysteria, they will collapse into a catatonic state and St. Barack will fade into well-deserved obscurity.
