I've pondered the thought behind Countdown with Keith Olbermann's "Campaign Comment" many times, often right here on the blog. When the John McCain/Sarah Palin campaign says something egregious, pulls a gaffe, or a unpleasant fact is revealed, I've wondered, "If Barack Obama did that, wouldn't FOX "News" be ALL OVER IT?"
One of the things left out of Olbermann's comment--probably wisely--was the question of Sarah Palin's coming grandchild. The is relegated to the blogs, and has been since about late week one of Palin's introduction. But imagine if you will that Obama had a teenaged daughter who was 5 months pregnant. Then imagine that he brought the "baby daddy" up on stage at the convention. And imagine that he'd been a typical slacker youth like Levi was, only that he was a black rap fan instead of a white hockey enthusiast. Do you think the Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys and Ann Coulters would have still framed the story as heartwarming? Doubtful.
Anyway, Olbermann had a lot of other "in bounds" things for his list of what if alternate universe scenarios. Check it out.
