UPDATE: And here's Obama who is going to "restore our moral standing" (NY SUN Hat tip David). Now that's pretty rich considering Obama's campaign is behind the smear Palin site masquerading as right wing evangelicals. Lowlifes. They cannot win on merit. So it's Chicago stye debased dirty tricks.
Apparently thee top post at the DU is currently the smear, picked up from Kos Diary, that Sarah Palin's youngest son is actually her daughter's.
Mara wrote, "Some people go the whole nine yards and claim that it's the daughter's with the father. Other people are absolutely clear on the fact that the truth of this assertion is entirely unimportant, as this kind of smear is what Rethuglicans do and is needed to win. Other people suggest that this rumor was manufactured by Rove, even though it is clearly manufactured right on the pages of the Daily Kos".
Larwyn just sent this from Democratic Undergound on their grotesque speculation on a Palin pregnancy cover-up

122. What many here don't understand. It doesn't matter if it's true or not. RUMOR IS TRUTH.
The modern laws of media hype and political warfare have a useful tenet:
Repeat ANYTHING or raise false concern over ANYTHING and it is likely to be planted in the conscious/subconscious of many voters.
If people start to think that there might be something fishy with Palin's last kid (if hers), then that's FINE. One more doubt (whether tied to reality or not) is another hesitation at the ballot box.
GET WITH THE PROGRAM PEOPLE. The "rising above it" bullshit has served us so well in the past, hasn't it?
If you have problems with the story, then STFU and get out of the way of Dems who are engaged in MODERN POLITICAL WARFARE. Go tend your garden or some other pedestrian task, because the "concern trolls" are not helping shape the message.
