Palin has been making a lot of noise recently accusing Obama of 'palling around' with terrorists.
Margo Howard points out:
It would have far more factual validity for Obama, or a surrogate, to publicize the fact that Track, the kid who joined the Army, did so because a judge told him it was that or jail due to his dealing drugs. I have a strong hunch, however, the Obama people would never get into that.I know that Obama has called on his supporters to leave the children of candidates out of the fray. But the way Palin uses her son's enlistment (on Sept. 11th, no less) as a political prop should make it a reasonable story to cover.
