Regardless of what the McCain camp thinks, they are getting favored treatment. Imagine if Michelle Obama had lied about her siblings. Imagine the uproar. Now look at the NPR story about Cindy McCain: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=93708729
Cindy evidently has half siblings she has never mentioned and, along with her father, has decided to pretend do not exist. She can say all she wants that she isn’t a “into” politics and that she is not running for office. Both probably true statements. But Mrs. Mcain, your husband is running which means that if he gets elected, you will have no choice but to live under a microscope.
I’m waiting for the media other than public radio to pick up on this. Thank you, Kathleen Portalski for stepping forward. And thank you NPR for running the story.
