SMH tries to smear Palin as well

The SMH runs a story entitled "Is Sarah Palin's baby really hers?", and then starts it with the line:

Prospective Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin said today that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, is pregnant.

Note that the story was published at 5:56am, long after lefties in the US started backtracking on the story that the baby belonged to her eldest daughter.

Why headline a story like that? Almost the entire story is about the fact that she is about to become a grandmother, with only one sentance addressing the rumours that Trig was not hers.

Talk about twisting the facts.

You know, what did the US Democrats ever do for Australia, and why are the local media so keen to poodle up for them?

I remember Pres Clinton arriving in Sydney 1997-ish, being asked 'Why don't you invade and get rid of Saddam?' (Because our UN Weapons inspector Butler was demanding action over Iraqi deception).

Clinton answered, 'That would give the green light to India to invade Pakistan'. 'The man's a fool', I thought. He knew nothing about this part of the world.
