Palin vs Kennedy

When Palin was first announced the VP pick for McCain, the MSM went nuts. First came lack of experience argument, despite the fact that she had twelve years of government experience as an elected official. Then came rumors about her sixteen year old daughter and that Palin must have faked her pregnancy. Many attacked her for NOT having an abortion. Then came the checks about her paycheck and that she was cheating her state by accepting a salary. Then came the gotcha interviews done by "unbiased" MSM interviewers. Then came the SNL skits, immediately done to ruin her reputation. At the same time, the MSM fully investigated her entire family, including her kids, and husband. By the end of the campaign, we knew 10x as much about Palin and her family than we knew about Obama. Now last week, someone burned down her church, most likely caused by the horrible negative attention the media brought to her and her town. The MSM claimed that they had to investigate her as she was new to the scene.

Will a similar investigation be done on Caroline Kennedy?

I think we know the answer to that one.
