What is Palin Hiding?

One issue that has bothered me for a while is the release of medical records by all of the candidates for President and Vice President. Barack Obama released his, Joe Biden released his, and John McCain released his for a couple of hours. Governor Palin has yet to release her medical records and that should fire off a flare in political reporting but it has not. What is Sarah Palin afraid of that is in her medical records?

Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Dish has been asking for her medical records for months and still no records. Early last week the Palin team stated that the records would be released and yet a week later, nothing?

Palin's Medical Records

Still AWOL. No explanation. Not even a gesture, which suggests to me that some in the McCain camp realize they'd rather release nothing than be implicated in anything that might hurt them after the election. Only ABC News' Kate Snow seems to care. Only this blog has really pursued this story for two long months. For the record, I find the idea that a vice-presidential candidate refuses to either give a press conference or release full medial records as a dreadful precedent for transparency. -The Daily Dish

I have to agree with Andrew Sullivan in thinking that Mrs. Palin has something in those records that just might be scandalous and very detrimental to the McCain campaign for President. One can only assume that the worst possible information is written down in black and white in her medical records and that the immediate news flash could end her political career. If not, then what is Sarah Palin hiding?

Andrew Sullivan, who used to be one of the sanest and most readable bloggers out there, has been completely unhinged for most of this year due to his weirdly obsessive Obamaphilia and Clinton-hatred. He participated in the sweaty frat-boy fantasy-fest about Palin's youngest child supposedly perhaps being her daughter's, and around the time I gave up on his blog entirely, he was bizarrely fixating on Palin's having had amniocentesis. I find it hard to give him credibility any more as anything except a case study in abmormal obsessions with female reproductive processes.

I'm not arguing with your points Infidel but don't you agree that it is rather odd that Palin still has not released her medical records?

Actually, Palin should be congratulated for standing up to the media's prurient snooping into irrelevancies.

McCain's medical records might just barely be considered to have some bearing on his fitness for the Presidency, due to the issue of his age. Aside from that, I can't imagine anything that might be in any of these individuals' medical records that would be at all relevant to their qualifications for office.

Where does it stop? If someone in the media decides to ask how often each candidate showers or what their favorite sexual positions are, does it suddenly become an "issue" if one or more condidates won't "release" the "information"? Do we really want a society where only people with no normal concern for personal privacy at all can run for high office?
