Sarah Palin's Baby May Actually Be Teen Daughter's Child

Someone in this picture is 6 months pregnant...
Bristol Palin Pregnancy: Is VP Sarah Palin’s 5th Child Really Her Daughters? (Photos)

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.

You decide:
Six months pregnant: Photo 1, Photo 2
Seven months pregnant: Photo 1, Photo 2

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...

All this proves to me is that Democrats are even nastier than Republicans when it comes to negative campaigning and the politics of personal destruction.

I agree. Isn't partisan character assassination disgusting?

Yeah, all Democrats should apologize to the RNC and John McCain.

It depends on whether or not there is any possible truth to it that has not already been debunked as false. Until then, it's just gossip.

It's only gossip at this stage, but there is potential here for truth - which is why I never come outright and say that this is fact, only speculation.

True, but it's the sort of detail that a decent vetting effort would have picked up on which I think pushes my theory that this was something the McCain folks came up with at the very last minute.

Pretty much, yes - but this choice smacks of desperation, panic, and pandering. McCain met her ONCE before choosing her, after all his false bravado about picking the person most qualified and all that rot this is who he lands on.

When panicked and desperate, once can overlook a lot of things and I believe that's what makes this different from a decent vetting effort.

Sorry, but this is both an unsupportably ridiculous broad-brush, and is nothing compared to, say, Ann Coulter stating that Obama would chase live aborted babies around operating rooms to kill them.
31st-Aug-2008 11:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, hell yeah. I have yet to hear any Republican apologize for Ann Coulter's statements, including her gay-bashing of John Edwards. Pot, meet Kettle--Kettle has something to tell you!

Let's see it top Karl Rove's story that John & Cindy McCain's adopted Burmese daughter was actually John's illegitimate half-black offspring. Till then, this is nothing.

please note: Said Child is not in ANY of John McCain's "Family" photos provided to the press.

I noticed this picture was was really pissed off that McCain's adopted daughter wasn't included in the picture. That's quite the omission! I wonder how she feels about it?

BTW, the eldest Palin daughter looks to be packing quite the rack in this picture, no?

Oh, dear. John looks like he's got a pole rammed up his ass in this picture.

I'm not surprised. McCain's dislike of "gooks" is documented, not to mention that a little old-fashioned prejudice on the McCains' part is possible. Sure, they'll adopt the little brown-skinned orphan, but . . . y'know, they don't have to be so public about it. Why not just quietly accept her into the family . . .

Yes, I grew up hearing a lot of people say this kind of thing. :P That's why I say it's possible. I think what pissed McCain off was that his opposition found a way to smear him that he wasn't prepared to handle.

I think that he wouldn't have ever adopted the baby on his own -- Cindy jokes that she surprised McCain with it by just bringing the baby home.

He probably "allowed" the adoption because it was better than risking losing access to her money.

On the other hand, I don't see his sons, Jack and John, either, so I'm probably just making shit up.
