Have you heard? Sarah Palin's brother arrested on drug charges!!!

I just heard. I expect that it will be all over tonight's news, and it'll headline most of tomorrow's papers, including the New York Times and Washington Post. Whoopi and her idiot pal Joy will do a whole show laughing about it, as will Stephen Colbert and all the late-night talk-show hosts. In fact, we'll almost certainly be hearing about it right up until election day.

Oh, wait--I just heard that it's Sharon Angle's brother. No difference though--it'll be all over the news forever in about fifteen minutes. How can that Tea Party hero even hold her head up much less stay in the race against Harry Reid now? This story will be everyplace tomorrow!

COLUMBIA, Mo. | The brother of U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill faces a felony drug charge stemming from a January incident near a Columbia nightclub he co-owns. Court documents show 46-year-old Will McCaskill was found unconscious Jan. 5 outside a restaurant near Generic, his nightclub. He was taken to a hospital with a cut above his eye and a large bruise. Police said they found a paper with a substance that later tested positive for cocaine. McCaskill was charged in August with drug possession. He was arrested Wednesday night in his hometown of Holts Summit and released on $4,500 bond.

Wait...Claire McCaskill's brother? Oh, no! She's not a Republican or a conservative candidate trying to unseat a liberal; she's a Democrat in good standing with her party.

Never mind. Nothing to see here, people. Cue the crickets, please. Forget you ever heard this like everyone else will.
