A reader writes to offer a theory of why the media is treating Bristol Palin’s baby daddy with kid gloves:
[A]ll the wimpy liberals in the media who would normally excoriate this type of jerk (because he is the kind who used to beat them up behind the middle school gym) are instead giving him a pass because he created a nice scandal for them.
I suspect, however, that if the backlash against the media helps elect a Republican, Daily Kos will be fueling conspiracy theories that Levi Johnston is a right-wing provocateur trained by Karl Rove.
