Why Is Palin Being So Secretive About Her Medical Records?

During an interview with Brian Williams last night, Sarah Palin danced around the issue of her medical records and whether or not they will be released.

Palin: "The medical records. So be it. If that will allow some curiosity seekers, perhaps, to have one more thing that they can either check the box off that they can find something to criticize, perhaps, or find something to rest them assured over. Fine. I'm healthy, I'm happy, had five kids. That is going to be in the medical records. Never been seriously ill or hurt. You will see that in the medical records if they're released."

Why all the secrecy? We saw the same thing with John McCain when he made his records public for only three hours to a small group of select reporters. It understand McCain's reluctance, but what does a seemingly healthy 44 year old have to hide?

According to the McCain camp, it doesn't look like we'll find out the answer anytime soon.

Spokeswoman Maria Comella told ABC News on Thursday: “When medical information related to Governor Palin’s health is ready to be released we will make that information available.”

Andrew is all over it.
