McCain Earns Mileage on the Back of the Palin Family

John McCain says he knew about Bristol Palin's pregnancy before he asked Sarah Palin to be his vice president.

That means one of two things: A) He's lying and only learned of it shortly before we did, or B) He knew about it, talked it over with his strategists, and decided the American people would respond well to a campaign family that rallies together in times of trouble. Which means he sees political opportunity in all this.

So which is worse? That he may not have known, or that he's hoping to earn mileage among working class voters on the back of the Palin family's private matters?
