Prominent blogger Andrew Sullivan develops an unhealthy obsession
over the (lack of) details surrounding the birth of Sarah Palin's youngest child. Sullivan really, really won't let it go.
Persistent rumors lead the editor of the Alaska Daily News to, "finally decide, after watching this go on unabated for months, to let a reporter try to do a story about the 'conspiracy theory that would not die' and, possibly, report the facts of Trig's birth thoroughly enough to kill the nonsense once and for all." Palin releases press release
slamming the paper. Editor of paper publishes email
from Palin's office along with his response. Palin complains
about "bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie," says episode is, "more indication of continued problems in the world of journalism." She also thinks Katie Couric is bad at journalism,
not the center of everybody's universe, and is exploiting Palin. Mike Huckabee disagrees, says Couric was "extraordinarily gentle" with Palin.
Political pundits and journalists are left scratching their heads - is she crazy? Or a crazy genius?
2012 is just around the corner.
