Updates: The Towel Incident; Too Young for Woodstock?

  • McCain strategist Steve Schmidt is denying one of the juicier tidbits in Newsweek's massive behind-the-scenes report about the campaign: that Sarah Palin met him and Mark Salter at the door of her St. Paul, Minn., hotel room wrapped in a towel (then told them to chat with husband Todd while she dressed). "Categorically ... not true," Schmidt told the Washington Times in a story Saturday. Newsweek's Evan Thomas defended the account to us: "It was extremely well sourced."


  • Several readers disputed our claim in Thursday's column that Barack Obama will be the first president too young to have gone to Woodstock -- he was 8 in 1969 -- noting that two babies were born at the legendary rock concert, and hey, his mom could have taken him if she had gone. Okay, whatever.
