Someone in this picture is 6 months pregnant...
There are news reports suggesting that abstinence-only, pro-life, Republican VP hopeful Sarah Palin's 4 month old son may in fact be her teenage daughter Bristol's child. Suspicions began during her pregnancy when her lack of a baby bump was cause for scrutiny in pictures - while Bristol clearly has... something going on. People were really surprised when she announced her pregnancy. People are even more surprised that the hospital she claims to have given birth in has no such thing on their announcements page for that day.
Bristol Palin left school for 5 months before the baby was born with a case of 'mono', and her mother didn't announce that she was pregnant until 8 months into the alleged pregnancy. She returned to work 3 days after allegedly giving birth. Friends of Bristol's have suggested that she actually did look pregnant. Let me be clear in my own speculation here - this is not what I imagine a seven month pregnant woman should look like. This is more in line with the later stages of pregnancy looks like, as Palin does in the picture I just linked to.
There's a piece about this on DKos wherein ArcXIX calls her a liar outright. There's an iReport on CNN.com with multiple links in it (some of which I used in this post already) and lots of links in the threads. I personally believe all of this, and further believe that the photo taken during the VP announcement was staged on purpose. Why isn't the alleged father of this child holding his own special needs infant son at such an important occasion? Also, I agree with many of you - Mr. Palin looks like a total power bottom.

So - what say you? Are you buying this or do you think she's telling the truth? If it's true, this blows yet another HUGE hole in the abstinence only argument. Which for me really matters. Also, I rather enjoy someone who is so completely self righteous and deluded getting exposed for being a liar when you get right down to it.
Ah, hypocrisy - schadenfreude be thy name...
