Lay off McCain/Palin?

From MSNBC:

McCain’s campaign on Wednesday angrily called for an end to questions about its review of Sarah Palin’s background, deriding a “faux media scandal designed to destroy the first female Republican nominee” for vice president.

Don’t get me wrong here – I agree with what Obama said last week – family is off-limits, and pretty much irrelevant.  However, the way that the McCain campaign is pitching this is just wrong, but in line with what they’ve done in the past.

For those of you keeping track at home:  can’t pick on McCain cause he was a POW (which I admire the man for, but as Fred Thompson said last night, “being a POW doesn’t qualify you to be President”), and you can’t pick on Palin cause she’s the first female Republican nominee for VP.
