Part of the problem with using guilt by association is that your associations are examined much more closely than they would be otherwise.
Sarah didn’t like that Barack had served on a board with William Ayers. Fine.
But I don’t like it that Sarah spent some time with Sherry, the mother of Bristol’s baby daddy.
From the Times:
State troopers have arrested the mother of Bristol Palin’s boyfriend on drug charges. The woman, Sherry L. Johnston, was arrested after troopers served a search warrant on a Wasilla home. Ms. Johnston, 42, has been charged with six felony drug counts. A trooper spokeswoman said in a news release that the charges were in connection to the prescription painkiller OxyContin. Ms. Johnston is the mother of Levi Johnston, 18. Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for vice president, announced in September that her daughter Bristol, 18, was pregnant and that Mr. Johnston was the father. She is due to give birth this weekend.
Why does Governor Palin associate with druggies, and what connection does she have with the Medellin cartel?
See how Sarah’s logic can work against her?
