Due respect to Andrew Sullivan, but this is overparsing:
The other untruth is that I have “advance[d] conspiracy theories that she is not the biological mother of Trig.” I would ask Labash to explain what conspiracy theory I have advanced. Who have I claimed is the real mother of Trig? How have I argued such a conspiracy took place? Who was in on it? There are no answers to this question because I have never advanced a single such theory. Indeed, I spent a great deal of effort not to.
Uh-huh. And I’ve never advanced conspiracy theories suggesting that Barack Obama was not born in the United States; I’ve just repeatedly asked where he was really born. So what’s the problem? All Andrew and I are asking for are the birth certificates.
Kidding aside, I refer you back to my earlier point regarding the limited value of political hypocrisy. Even if Palin weren’t Trig’s biological mother, it wouldn’t matter. That’s the Palin family’s concern, not ours.
