Reporter Asks: Should Palin Talk About Hubby's DUI in Her Speech?
Reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg's "Caucus" Post Wednesday afternoon, "DeLay Offers Advice to Palin: Be Yourself," proves that Stolberg still can't let Palin's daughter's pregnancy go. After quoting former House Majority Leader Tom "The Hammer" DeLay giving Palin advice, she followed up by rehashing liberal media talking points about Palin and actually asks DeLay if Palin should, among other things, talk about her husband's quarter-century old DUI:
But what about the business of Ms. Palin's complicated family: her feud with her state trooper brother-in-law, which sparked an ethics investigation; her husband, who was arrested on drunk driving charges 24 years ago; her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, whose pregnancy - and decision to get married to keep her baby - has prompted conservatives to rally around Ms. Palin as a woman who opposes abortion and practices what she preaches? Does she need to address all that?
"No," Mr. DeLay said flatly.
