William Jacobson yesterday wonders why some adults (probably using the word loosely) think it’s ok to attack kids of politicians they don’t like.

It really is hard to understand why some adults feel the need to make fun of Trig Palin, a one-year old who has Down Syndrome. Politics alone cannot explain it. If you don’t like Sarah Palin, fine, but why go after Trig?

The controversy regarding the Photoshop of Trig by Alaskan blogger Linda Biegel is only the tip of the iceberg. Ever since Sarah’s nomination, Trig has been a target. Last fall, the popular DC-based "gossip" website Wonkette joked how Trig must have wished he’d been aborted. Now Wonkette has taken Biegel’s Photoshop antics as an excuse to go after Trig anew.

In a recent post, Wonkette promoted and joked about even cruder Photoshops of Trig at the Something Awful web forum, where people can post anonymously…

They even included one of their own at this forum (I’m not posting any of the pictures here).  Biegel had taken her photoshopped picture down (based on the one above), but she is also promoting this forum as well.

Would it be possible to leave kids out of the picture?  I mean come on, do you actually have anything credible to say?  Belittling people, especially a child with Down Syndrome doesn’t make a case for you.

Jacobson said that, “It takes small people to stoop this low.”  Very true.  R.S. McCain goes a little further than I would.

Well Linda Biegel, people at Wonkette and Something Awful, and others do have a constitutional right in this country to make an ass out themselves.  It doesn’t mean you have to use it though.
