DANA BASH: Yes.
ROBERTS: The baby is just slightly more than four months old now. Children with Down's syndrome require an awful lot of attention. The role of Vice President, it seems to me, would take up an awful lot of her time, and it raises the issue of how much time will she have to dedicate to her newborn child?
I think Dana Bash was caught off guard with that "question." She awkwardly responded: "I guess -- my guess is that, perhaps, the line inside the McCain campaign would be, if it were a man being picked who also had a baby, but -- you know, four months ago with Down's Syndrome, would you ask the same question?"
Probably not. I'd like to know if Roberts also wonders if Joe Biden should have given up his U.S. Senate seat to stay home with his sons after his wife and daughter were killed in a car accident. Is he a bad, neglectful parent, too?
Update: Meanwhile, bloggers at the DailyKos are wondering if the baby is really hers. They think she might have faked the pregnancy and her disabled child is really a grandchild.
