At this hour, the Drudge Report has an item (no link) that reads as follows: "NYT PREPARES TO FRONT EXPOSE ON PALIN'S BABY... DEVELOPING..."
 
Who knows?  It could be a false lead.  Or . .  .

Is it even conceivable (no pun intended) that the "newspaper of record" would try to run an "expose" on a baby in order to harm his mother for political reasons?  Are they going to try to blame the Governor in some way for little Trig's Down syndrome?  What can there possibly be to "expose"?

The possibilities boggle the mind, and sadly, after what we've seen last week, there's not really much I'm prepared to rule out.  It would seem to me, however, that the Times is running the risk of creating the backlash of all time, in what seems like a transparent effort to offer aid and comfort to the Obama/Biden ticket.
