A relatively minor correction - Palin had SOME leakage of amniotic fluid, not "water breaking" - it's a matter of degree. The first is a concern, but NOT mandating an immediate trip to the emergency room.
I like the way Althouse smacks down one of Andrew Sullivan's comments:
If the Bridge To Nowhere is worth checking out, why aren't the pregnancy's bizarre details?
Althouse delivers the ultimate blow:
Ya'know, all that stuff about A Woman's Right to Privacy?
Because the Bridge to Nowhere involved public, government actions, and the pregnancy was something happening inside her body as a result of purely private behavior.
