Newt’s campaign has its troubles.

But there’s no reason to pile on Newt because of the Tiffany’s credit line story.  That’s just how the media does it; what difference does it make how he spends his money as long as it’s legal, nothing that touches on character, and he pays his bills?

Prying into irrelevant personal details of Republican candidates’ lives is not unique to Newt.  It’s the Palinization of the media approach to Republican candidates.

No matter who the Republican candidate is, that person will be portrayed with some variation of the treatment of Palin.  It’s why it so disgusts me when people who are on “our side” play that game against each other.

What goes around comes around.
