Apparently Todd Palin, the husband of Sarah Palin who is the Vice President choice of Senator John McCain had a DUI back in 1986. I think he would have been in his early twenties. The Obamablogs are having a field day with all the information coming out today. Which is probably due to the Convention and the way the Republicans are handling the hurricane which conflicts with the convention.
If a guy has one DUI that is 22 years old I don’t care about it and certainly wouldn’t hold it against him. In fact it’s safe to say I wouldn’t know about it unless he or his wife, though not at the time, were to run for an elected office. Otherwise it would have remained his own private business.
I know we have to play it this way but it is really sad.
If the repubs didn’t think they were better than everyone else it wouldn’t be a news story.
So if Obama had a DUI that wouldn’t be news?
