Sarah Palin’s husband may have a “John Edwards” problem. Not disqualifying for her in a political sense, but adds another argument to the “she never should have been selected for veep” stack. Will the truth come out? The National Enquirer is on the job, so I’d guess yes.

Meanwhile the Anchorage Daily News, apparently not dissuaded from practice of journalism by the whining of McCain’s campaign director, calls on Palin to stop stonewalling the Troopergate investigation.

In the face of this media pressure, Palin has decided to leave the campaign trail and return to Alaska. With only 60 days or so until the general election, this seems an odd time for a vacation. But better that, I suppose, than a Q&A with the press corp.
