Hypocrites redux

Why is it that the media can't talk about Palin's daughter's pregnancy, but the McCain campaign can drag the girl's boyfriend to the Republican Convention? I thought they needed their privacy?

And what about not involving the children of politicians? Have we forgotten the lovely remarks of Rush Limbaugh:
Here is a Limbaugh joke: Everyone knows the Clintons have a cat. Socks is the White House cat. But did you know there is a White House dog?" And he puts up a picture of Chelsea Clinton. Chelsea Clinton [was] 13 years old.

and of course the Republican nominee himself:
"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father." John McCain 1998
That's classy, with a "k".
