Chicago [CBB]- Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama continues to stand firm on his statement that the families of either party’s candidates should ‘off limits’ to criticism and scrutiny. Obama said whether or not Palin’s daughter Bristol is actually the mother of Palin’s youngest son Trig should not be discussed, but Obama did point out he, of course, can not control what the media reports.
‘I have always maintained a person’s family life should remain private, regardless of how juicy, sensational and magazine selling the idea of Palin actually being Trig’s grandmother might be,’ Obama said, ‘now certainly if Mrs. Palin wishes to submit to a DNA test to prove the paternity then that is her prerogative, but my campaign is staying neutral on the situation no matter how much Trig looks like Bristol’s boyfriend.’
Obama went on to say that he would focus on the issues, including the war, the economy, the environment, high gas prices and the need for a government funded survey to the study in the increasingly new phenomenon of older women taking their daughter’s illegitimate children and raising them as their own.
“I also refuse to answer questions pertaining to rumors that Gov. Palin had a long standing affair with space aliens or how the sex tape might or might not be circulating around the Internet,” Obama stated, “Americans need solutions not salacious news about the alarming increase in women governors of large, cold climate states that begin with the letter ‘A’ being involve in tantalizing sex scandals involving extraterrestrials, caribou and moose. Or is that meese?”
The McCain campaign acknowledged Senator Obama’s gracious commitment to keep the personal attacks out of the press in kind by saying it would also refrain from noting how much Obama sounds a lot like Osama and will not comment on rumors of a certain Presidential candidate’s alleged love triangle involving a well known environmentalist and a New York senator. A statement from the McCain said that ‘the private sex lives of Barack Obama, Al Gore and Hillary Clinton divert attention from addressing more pressing matters like wives of well known candidates that hate America.’
