Sarah Palin Didn't Give Birth To Down Syndrome Baby?

Sarah Palin Didn't Give Birth To Down Syndrome Baby?

On Friday, it was announced that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was chosen to be Republican presidential nominee John McCain‘s running mate. The 44-year-old Idaho-native claimed to be the mother of five children, the youngest of whom was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Palin‘s decision to have the baby was applauded by the pro-life community.

Here’s some new evidence Daily Kos has brought forward, showing Sarah Palin is not the mother of four-month-old Trig:

– On March 6th, Sarah announced she’s seven month pregnant. Even close members of her staff were surprised.

– Her water broke one month before Trig was due, but she kept a previous speaking engagement in Texas and then flew 8 hours to Alaska. No one on board noticed that Sarah was going into labor either. The flight lands in Anchorage, Alaska. Instead of visiting a medical facility that can accommodate a premature birth in Alaska’s most equipped city, she drives 45 minutes away to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center, right outside the small village she used to govern as Mayor, Wasilla.

– On April 18, 2008, Trig was born one month premature. Sarah returned to work after three days. (Trig was diagnosed with Down syndrome while still in the womb.)

Trig is not Sarah‘s son, but grandson. It was her 16-year-old daughter Bristol (pictured right) who was carrying. (80% of the cases of Down Syndrome are in mothers under the age of 35.)

– Family had taken Bristol out of Anchorage High School due to contracting “infectious mononucleosis”. Reports say she was absent from school for five to eight months. Mono can last anywhere from two weeks to three months.

To read all of the incriminating evidence “proving” Palin is a liar, visit DailyKos.com.

Methinks Diddy has enough ammo for another verbal lashing in vlog #17! (Watch #16 here.)

UPDATE 1: The Associated Press has released an undated photo of a pregnant Palin, probably with her first child. And for kicks, this photo manip is so clever! This scandal is just calling out for Tina Fey to return to SNL to spoof all of this.

UPDATE 2: DailyKos posted a picture of Palin with what appears to be a baby bump. Check it out here.

    So what? So she covered up her 16 year old being pregnant? Who wouldn’t do that? It doesn’t change fact that they didn’t abort the baby when they figured out he had Downs- Syndrome.

    It’s a lie and Jared is just a scared liberal. Their hatred of this woman shows they are scared their liberal god won’t win. Calm the f down liberals and stop lying.

    No… Bristol, the daughter, was pregnant, but Sarah, allegedly, tried to cover for her by pretending to be pregnant. When Bristol, allegedly, gave birth, the child she had was passed off as Sarah’s child.

    This sounds like bull$h*t to me.

    me Says:

    i cant believe you would even post this bogus crap. just because the democrats are all afraid now because a smart choice was made to select her doesnt mean they should start to create all these stupid lies.

    why do you think young people dont vote? because were sick of all the stupid attacking that both parties do to each other. its time to end that . sarah will be an amazing VP because shes real. it is what it is. who cares what has happenen. make your decision who to vote for then shut up. dont go around attacking the other person thinking ull sway the vote…cause u wont.

    and for those democrats who say she is inexperienced….she actually started in politics way before your front man obama did.

    Besane Says:

    This woman has a LOT OF SKELETONS in the closet! This rumor was not new— because of her ‘anti-abortion’ stance she couldn’t have had her daughter abort a baby she probably didn’t want, but offered to cover up for her. WHAT A MESS. Now it’s all out.

  16. 16
    that is not right Says:

    If you are so Pro Life then why not admit your under age daughter is pregnant and let her publicly be pregnant and have the baby?

    Why lie to the public and basically perpetrate fraud by telling your administration and friends you are the one who is pregnant.

    For someone who is running under the campaign theme of transparency and truth and non corruption.. that would be counter intuitive. And could be devastating for the race.

    Will be interesting if this is proven correct.

    And M.. no it isn’t understandable.

    Understandable would be admitting your daughter is pregnant. Supporting her in seeing out the pregnancy and then deciding to give the baby up for adoption or helping her raise the baby… lying to everyone and raising your grandchild as your child and having a child call his mother sister has serious mental and emotional consequences.. ask Jack Nicholson and others who came forward declaring betrayal and serious emotional distress by family members deceptions.

    ace tomato Says:

    If this is true, and that remains to be seen, then she covered it up to protect her young daughter. I don’t think that is wrong – it’s called privacy, and parenting.

    And M is absolutely right, it shows family commitment and a commitment to her pro-life values. This would be a scandal if she secretly had her own daughter get an abortion while espousing a pro life platform, but as it stands (and again, just a rumor right now) it is an example of her integrity, not a black mark on it.

Posting something like this as fact to try and sway opinions is disgusting. How bout you respect the OTHER side for once.

    fyi, Jared didn’t make this stuff up, he even had the source cited. so why u all ran to the conclusion that he’s running for Obama?!! maybe he is, maybe not. that’s his choice. come on, voting is a personal choice anyways.
    it’s his blog, let him post what he finds interesting. and to be honest, it is an interesting post, regardless of whose side ur on. after all, both sides should know more about the ppl running for the offices… be those infos malicious, truthful, patriotic or whatever… these are the things that give us an idea of the kind of ppl they are… then we can decide on our choice…
    no need for personal attacks… that’s a cheap shot and just goes to show the person that u are.

    http://www.adn.com/photos/v-gallery/story/509850.html?/1521/gallery/509852-a509987-t3.html

    I’m guessing they kept the teen on the downlow and there’s no images of her. It’s the photos of Sarah, announcing when you’re 7 months pregnant and nobody knowing beforehand, the odd behavior in Texas – flying after her water broke, and the removal of images off her official .gov web site which raise alarms to me.

    kate Says:

    Taking her daughter out of school was probably as far as she should have gone with that. But telling people that your pregnant when ur not is just dishonest. she should have accepted the concequences of people finding out about her daughter being pregnangt. A 16 year old having a baby is no big news it happens to many teens and families.

    Calypso Says:

    Even if it’s true I don’t see anything wrong with what she did. I Actually respect her for keeping the baby and for trying to protect her daughter.

    C’mon people, Try to have more respect for situations like this!

  31. 31
    JC Says:

    As for those saying “so what”, there likely is issues of fraud involved with insurance, the birth certificate, and any maternity benefits the state may have provided. There’s an argument it was noble to do, but it could have been illegal. And the nobility goes out when she decides to accept the VP slot, knowing the eyes of the world will be snooping into her family’s business.

    jane Says:

    The reason it’s important is because Sarah Palin WHORED out this ‘pregnancy’ and held herself up as an example and paragon of virtue. Palin took every opportunity to assert that she was keeping the baby because every life has value and yada yada yada.

    What she actually did though is illustrate why so many women do have abortions! Rather than support her daughter she HID the teen’s pregnancy–because teenagers can be embarrassed by becoming pregnant! She proved that their is a social stigma to teen pregnancy and perhaps she even realized that becoming a parent can ruin a young person’s life.

    neil Says:

    How brave of her to insist HER DAUGHTER not get an abortion.
    But all irony aside, I actually feel good about her nomination. It isn’t because I want her and McCain to win but rather since the two opposing teams are now firmly set we can safely assume that in the next administration the Neo-con slime will be kept away from the levers of power. Whether you like John McCain or not he has reestablished his maverick credentials with this choice. This puts his team firmly outside the Bush, Cheney, Neo-conservative ADVENTURIST policies of the last administration. Yes, they are still conservative but as a Canadian I can live with that.

    Palin is a LIAR .. and someone with as thin a resume as hers I can only imagine what else she is hiding. The Republicans obviously did not vet her. She is so ANTI-CHOICE, anti-birth control and anti-condom it makes the Bush admin look like liberals. You people need to see how this 20 months ago mayor of 5000 in the middle of nowhere really stands on the issues before you give your support. She is a nutjob.

  41. 41
    Besane Says:

    If this rumor turns out to be true, or if Palin cannot provide the evidence to the contrary (that she indeed is the true mother), her record as a public servant is tarnished as a LIAR. I don’t condone a mother trying to cover for a daughter, but do you want her to LIE to you as a potential President of the USA? It’s all about integrity which she will be perceived to have NONE if this story can’t be extinguished. So, if this is indeed a bogus, come on now and show us the proof. She is parading her down-syndrome son as a sign of “pro-life”, so own up to it.

Wasn’t this obvious, then, to alot of people, all of whom are covering up? And they would do this, even though it was the governor of their state, so kind of a very big deal? That entire facility, all those people? And her water broke on a plane, yet she wasn’t pregnant? Did she have a water balloon under her skirt? Take this down, Jared. It is beneath you.

    She’s a nice woman, a real go-getter, a wonderful example to young women to follow their dreams and take career risks. And she does not have sufficient background in constitutional law or the proper scale of legislative experience to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. While acreage big and cozied with big oil, Alaska is not a suitable practice ground for the job, sorry. Maybe if she were a 2d term governor or she had a solid background as a jurist or interpreter of law, great.

    Please don’t underestimate the value of legal background with candidates. Lack of it is what has gotten us into the Iraq mess, with citizens and legislators opting to “support our president” as if he were a fragile ego monarch, and going along with a war and subsequent powers that are at best, illegal.

    You also have to question the judgment of someone to take on this job. If you have only flown a Cessna and recently gotten your license, and someone asks you if you would like to fly this here 767 with 400 passengers on board for the next couple hours, and try a landing into Hong Kong, what is it that makes you say “Sure!” Is it hubris or out and out stupidity, especially when you have gone on record saying you don’t know WTF the VP does. (You know, tie-breaking vote in Senate, run National Security Council, little **** like that.) Either way, not good.

    I’m proud of you Jared!

    The Republican party has taken women back a generation by using a completely unqualified woman on the ticket and then assuming all women are mindless sheep that will vote for anything with ovaries. Hillary Clinton was chosen by 18 million (she lost, but still); Sarah Palin was selected by one person.

    On the experience issue, don’t dare say she’s as qualified as Obama:

    “Alaska is a much smaller state than Illinois, the political base of Barack Obama, whom Republicans have repeatedly criticized for being inexperienced, having served nearly four years in the U.S. Senate after eight in the Illinois state Senate.”

    “Palin has no experience in national office. Before becoming governor in December 2006, she served as a council member and mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, which had a population of slightly more than 5,000 during her time in office.”

    The media is going out of it’s way to try to dig up dirt about Sara Palin, they are bashing her for her womanhood, attacking her family, and making false accusations against her, all because she is a WOMAN. Where is the fairness? She is the First Woman to be nominated in the Republican Party to run for such esteme office…BUT…Barack Hussin Obama is the First Partial Black to run for such an esteme office. My question: where is the equity in the media covering both candidates? I have yet to read multiple attacks on Obama’s parentage, where he was raised the first years of his life, his wife’s papers in university calling for black supremacy….bash one, bash both, at least be equitable about it……I prefer knowledge based in fact to make my important decision this Nov. 4th.

    Something is amiss Says:

    I have ever heard of someone pregnant over 40.. walking several blocks at high speed, drinking coffee, in heels when their is snow.. you are already a high risk pregnancy.. why would you take the risk of caffeine and a fall on the slick sidewalks? Nor flying without after 7 months without alerting the airline to your condition. Nor leaking amniotic fluid which could be an indicator that something is seriously wrong and thinking ah so what.. let me finish my speech, fly for Texas to Alaska (once again without alerting the airline that you might be in fetal distress labor.. not showing any outward signs of labor or distress to stewardess’) and then not go straight to a hospital that has neo natal facilities but drive an additional 45 minutes to a small hospital without premie unit but within your control of power to give birth??? WTH??? I have had two babies… I couldn’t get to the hospital fast enough and that was a 10 minute drive.. If I thought something was wrong… I would have broken land speed records..

    She was out of town and got the call that her daughter was in labor.

    And NO NO NO NO it is not honorable or commendable to lie as a politician building your career on truth, transparency and honor to fake a pregnancy to cover for your 16 year old daughter… the daughter, her sister, and this child will need serious therapy if they have to carry this secret with them into adulthood.. he is my brother..my child.. he is my grandson ..my son.. and has down syndrome??? Poor poor poor baby!!

    And for someone who calls herself a feminist for ProLife.. a feminist would have proudly helped her daughter get through the pregnancy and face the challanges openly and honestly.. this isn’t 1950 where you say.. Oh she has mono (wink wink) for 5 to 8 months!! Good greif!!

    She was barely investigated by McCain.. he FD up choosing her.. just because she has a ****** doesn’t mean people are stupid enough to vote for her.. she is anti choice, anti equal pay, under investigation for abuse of power and now may have lied about her child/grandchild. Lets just step backwards with female rights about 50 years with this choice McCain.. are you going to take the female right to vote away next?

    McCain’s judgment is a dodgy, too. You know, when you interview for the biggest job in your life, don’t you typically do about 3 rounds of interviews? At least??

    So when you are looking for someone who is supposed to have commander in chief potential, don’t you think you should put a bit more effort in beyond a first time meeting in February, then a phone conversation, and then another meeting on this past Thursday morning? Even if they spent the whole day and night each time, that’s a total of 72 hours.

If she is willing to put her unborn baby in jeopardy while flying for 8 hours and then pass a well equipped hospital to get to a small hospital?? What does that say about her judgment skills? Her child was not a priority? Was it because she knew he had down syndrome.. she could callously risk his life with an 8 hours plane ride and and 45 minute drive???

    What can she possibly do if there is an emergency in the country that needs her immediate action???

    I have never heard of such a stupid thing? Well, sitting in a class room reading My Pet Goat for 15 minutes while the nation was under attack maybe.. or taking more vacation time then any standing President EVER leading up to 9/11.. that pretty stupid..

So what if there is talk on here about McCain, Obama, Biden, Palin, Beau, or Bristol. They’ve all been on TV and I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there (if only there were a raised hand icon) who find all of this controversy very entertaining. How McCain chooses a VP candidate who is a woman, obviously trying to pick up some last minute Hilary Clinton Fanatic votes, (cough cough sexcist cough cough). How said VP candidate has less than a full term of governer under her belt. How McCain is 72, with 4 bouts of cancer under his belt, so, uh, while it isn’t exactly pleasant, could die under presidency. How if that happens, we’d be stuck with Palin as president, and then where exactly do you think we’d be. How everyone seems to want to make this woman look bad. How everyone seems to want to make her kids and family look bad, and make Trig look bad. How everyone seems to think that the election is no where near entertaining and has no place on such blog. How everyone is complaining relentlessly to Jared about the above statement. I don’t know about you, but I personally find ALL of that INCREDIBLY entertaining.

    ———————–
    Not at all. She’s fair game, and if she wants to play, well, she’s gotta play. She doesn’t get a 2d or softer set of rules than everybody else. Why, that would be some sort of special interest, curved scoring approach (which, if she had the qualifications of a Christie Todd Whitman or Kay Bailey Hutchison, she would not need).

    In the internet age, you don’t have to go out of your way to find information. It’s all out there. Permanently, whether you think you take down your My Space page or not.

    Also, you are supposed to dig to find out all you can about politicians, and make an informed decision, not throw away your vote in a beauty contest or blind allegiance. This is not a monarchy where you just shrug and get the next thing the family spawns for you.

    Yes people do have skeleton’s in their closet. I understand how she’d have a problem telling the truth after all this time, but people can’t expect EVERYONE to ignore it if it turns out to be true.

    She can expect more of this; it happened to the male candidates, you can’t expect her to be treated differently because she’s female. That’s not sexist, that’s politics.

    Although what she did may be admirable to some, others will see it as just lying and wonder what other things she might be lying about. There is also the ‘other’ problem of her being under 2 ethiics investigations springing from accusations that she abused her office to pursue a personal grudge. If things keep coming out, after a while it doesn’t matter if they are true or not. We all know the voting public can be fickle.

I was taught that when I messed up I had to take responsibility and it was on me to deal with the consequences.

    But it’s okay because she’s a woman. An under qualified woman, but one about to make history, right? I voted for Hillary in the primary because I agreed with her views on how the country should be run. I’m now for Obama because he’s the candidate I most agree with. It would be highly offensive to my feminist mother that went to countless of rallies and protest in the 60′s & 70′s to vote for someone just because they’re a woman. That is not feminism.

    Before commenting on Down Syndrome stats, maybe you folks ought to Google DS? The facts are that yes, a woman over 35 is more likely to have a DS baby and those odds increase as she gets older. However, since most woman who have babies are still UNDER 35, the stat is correct-more women under 35 have DS babies simply b/c more women under 35 have babies. In addition, the odds of having a DS baby are also increased for extremely young (i.e. teen) mothers.

    Whether the story is true or not, the circumstances are very, very strange. If she is indeed so vehemently pro-life, then why would she put her special needs baby’s life at risk by insisting on delaying medical assistance for 8+ hours while in labor? And what a dedicated mother! Back to work 3 days later? Was the baby in intensive care since it was a preemie? Who was taking care of him while mommy was at work? And now that he’s all of 4 months old she’s going to campaign for VP? Let’s hear it for family values!!!

    If this story is true, it reflects badly on Sarah Palin.

    Yes, she may have been a loving mother protecting her child but anyone with an ounce of sense will know the best way to protect your daughter in these circumstances is to stand by her side and help her go back to school, help her take care of the baby. It isn’t to create a lie for your daughter to live for the rest of her life. It calls into question Sarah’s judgment, and her values. Ask yourself, would you do this to your daughter? How would you feel if your mother had wanted you to do live this lie?

    Here are some facts about downs syndrome.

    (1) Though the incidence of downs syndrome babies increase with age, even young women can have a downs baby.

    Does the risk of Down syndrome increase with the mother’s age? Yes. The risk of Down syndrome increases from about 1 in 1,250 at age 25, to 1 in 1,000 at age 30, 1 in 400 at age 35, 1 in 100 at age 40 and 1 in 30 at age 45 (6). Women over age 35 have been traditionally considered most likely to have a baby with Down syndrome. However, about 80 percent of babies with Down syndrome are born to women who are under age 35, as younger women have far more babies (2).

    http://www.marchofdimes.com/pnhec/4439_1214.asp

    (2) You cannot tell for certain whether you are having a downs baby just by ultra sound. However, using ultra sound, you may get some clues whether your baby might have downs.

    There are several other items that can be found during an ultrasound exam that some researchers have felt that may have a significant association with Down syndrome. These findings may be seen in normal fetuses, but some obstetricians believe that their presence increases the risk of the fetus having Down syndrome or other chromosomal abnormality. These “markers” include echogenic bowel, echogenic intracardiac focus, and dilitation of the kidneys (pyelctasis). However, these markers as a sign of Down syndrome are still controversial, and parents-to-be should keep in mind that each marker can also be found in a small percentage of normal fetuses. In early 2001, a study (Smith-Bindman, 2001) was published that looked at all of the previous studies on this topic. The authors concluded that “[these markers] could not discriminate well between unaffected fetuses and those with Down syndrome.” A more specific marker that is currently under investigation is the measurement of the fetal nose; fetuses with Down syndrome appear to have smaller noses on ultrasound than fetuses without chromosomal abnormalities.

I also feel it does make a difference if she is lying about having this baby, this women is already under investigation. This is a problem people, what will she do in office! Have we not had enough of this from the current administration? As has been said, she is pro-life. She should have supported her daughter, this proves people like her will throw us back to the 1950’s with this way of thinking.

    Also, women I hope you are not voting for her because she has a ******. That is like African Americans voting for Obama because he is Black. If you were voting for Hillary then you would not vote for her and McCain. Mrs. Palin is Hillary light and she stands for NOTHING Hillary believes in.

    If this is not an “entertainment” story, then why did McCain & Palin’s families (EXCEPT for McCain’s adopted daughter, who is from Bangladesh) appear in PEOPLE? These are public figures, people.

    Second, NONE of this story has been made up by Democrats or by anyone having anything to do with the Obama campaign. In fact, when she surprised the state of Alaska and announced she was 7 months pregnant, local papers asked all these same questions.

    Finally, remember that USUALLY, this kind of thing would be caught in the vetting process. But this time around, John McCain—by his people’s own admission—wanted a “shake things up” candidate. She was vetted for a couple of days and he’d only ever met her briefly once prior.

    In his mind, women will vote for any woman. In reality, MANY more fundamentalist Christians WILL vote for ANY candidate, like her, who his anti-abortion with zero tolerance.

    But the fact remains, this person was not investigated deeply. There is a very good chance this story is true (just like the John Edwards story wound up being true) and that it will be exposed. She is not the VP nominee until she is officially nominated at the convention, and even then, she can still be off the ticket.

    Watch for that—it’s coming.

Cleveland narrowly won.

You guys would cheer on a goat (because you already have a monkey in office) as long as you don’t see the Democrats get in.

    The Republicans don’t care about change or trying to make America better they just won’t to keep the same ol’ rigged ass, take care of themselves, broke down oil machine going.

    Well, you might as well get ready because even some of your own faithful republicans are jumping ship because of this retarded nomination by your nitwit McCain, a bad decision before the voting begins. That says a HELL of a lot to me.

    Sarah Palin is my New Hero Says:

    McCain Says Palin a Better Leader than Obama

    August 31, 2008 12:37 PM

    On Fox News Sunday this morning (watch HERE) Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said that his new running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, has been a better leader than his opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois.

    “What this brings is a spirit of reform and change that is vital now in our nation’s capital,” McCain said. “Eighty four percent of the American people think the country’s on the wrong track. In our Party, we have corruption. We have former members of Congress residing in federal prison, so it’s not surprising to me that we’ve seen an incredible invigoration around our Party and around the nation, not just Republicans, but Democrats. By the way, in the last day and a half or whatever it’s been, we have raised $4 million on the Internet. I wish I had taken her a month ago.”

    McCain said that Palin has “got the right judgment. She doesn’t think, like Senator Obama does, that Iran is a minor irritant,” McCain said, stating something as fact that Obama never ever came close to saying.

    “She knows that the surge worked and succeeded and she supported that,” McCain continued. “Senator Obama still, still to this day, refuses to acknowledge that the surge has succeeded. She’s been commander-in-chief of the Alaska Guard that has served back and back. In fact, as you know, she’s got a son who’s getting ready to go. But she’s had the judgment on these issues that Senator Obama, he’s had all the wrong judgments. Governor Palin understands these issues, and she understands the challenges that we face.”

    “She’s had twelve years of elected office experience” — McCain said, including her 10 years as Mayor of Wasilla, an Anchorage suburb with less than 1/10th the population of the arena Obama spoke to Thursday night.

    McCain said that Palin’s experience included “travelling to Kuwait, including being involved in these issues, and look, I’m so proud that she has displayed the kind of judgment and she has the experience and judgment as an executive. She’s run a huge economy up there in the state of Alaska. Twenty percent of our energy comes from the state of Alaska, and energy is obviously one of the key issues for our nation’s security.”

    McCain said that “as governor, she has had enormous responsibilities, none of which Senator Obama had. When she was in government, he was a community organizer. When she was taking tough positions against her own party, Senator Obama was voting present 130 times in the state legislature. On every tough issue, whatever it was, she was taking them on. That’s the kind of judgment that I’m confident that we need in Washington.”

    VOTE McCain-Palin

    The only thing that really disaapoints me is that JJ posted this at all, mainly because I come to this site for entertainment purposes….not political. But, hey, it’s his site so he can post whatever the h*ll he wants.
    As for the post itself, IF it is true then anyone who is whining and crying about how she lied to the American people and all that cr*p is a totally naive dumba*s because whether you like it or not ALL politicians lie. Some just manage to get away with lying longer than others and lying about your child being pregnant and you being the mother is really just all that big a deal to me. I mean, seriously, Clinton looked American’s in the eye and flat out lied (I DID NOT SLEEP WITH THAT WOMAN, anyone remember that?) and just beause he lied about that didn’t really affect his capability to run this country. Anyway, this won’t change my vote for McCain/Palin.

    Obama for President. Says:

    FYI, Republicans, the Democrats are not scared of Sarah Palin. She’s a joke, and has only made McCain look more like the idiot that he is.

    Hillary supporters are NOT STUPID and they won’t vote for McCain just because his running mate is a woman.

    So Right Wingers, Neo-Cons, Faux-Christians, Fascists, Racists, Homophobes, Morons, whatever you call yourselves, PREPARE TO LOSE.

    But in the end we will all win when Obama wins. America will repaired from the damages that EIGHT years of Republican rule has done to this great country.

    There is a newsweek article in which she announces to the interviewer that she has to leave because she is in labor and the interviewer was in shock. He said he didn’t even know she was pregnant let alone 7 months pregnant. He said she wore a loose black dress but no signs of being pregnant. I read this on Friday before the news even started about this and I thought it was strange and blew it off but now it is a concern.

    There is such a thing as a prostetic maternity belly which in order for her to cover for her daughter she wore in different stages of the month. Because she seems to be a short woman she will carry more weight than a taller woman and it would be noticeable in her face. If you look at the photos she does not look pregnant and the sky lodge photos should have been just left off all together it looks like she do now.

    one less reader Says:

    Jared, I am so disappointed in you. Truly, this is lower than I would have ever expected you to go. The picture you use to back your story up is from 2006, and there are literally hundreds of other pictures out there that show Gov Palin pregnant. To use the Daily Kos as your source just made you look so partisan, so…unfair. Im just appalled. In can barely find the words to say that in the way I really feel it. Disgusted, disturbed, so so disappointed.
    If you are right, what? Brownie points, I guess? You are hardly the first to break the story. But if you are wrong, Jared, what then? You have raised serious and awful allegations about a family who has done nothing to deserve it. You have made a child out to be a liar, made her forever see herself as fat, made people forever look at her as a liar. And you have tarnished what was a very honest feel good story about a baby boy born despite tremendous pressure to abort.
    Do your own research. Palin’s Dr spoke up for her after the delivery, saying she was ok to fly. Is her Dr lying too? Seriously, the damage done by such crass insinuations is deplorable. And I cannot in good conscience be a part of it.
    Oh, and for future referance? I have a child with DS, too. A child WITH Down syndrome. Not a Down syndrome child. And I had her at 31, which bears true for the fact that most babies with DS are born to younger mothers. The risk is higher in older mothers, but they have fewer babies.
    And when you are a mother, a strong woman, and a fighter, you do what you have to do to make it ok. If that means going back to work right away, if that means hopping a plane to be in your own comfort zone to deliver a baby you know will need to be surrounded by loving family…you do it. You dont ***** and whine and carry on. She had several months to get prepared for what DS would bring, she was ok with it by the time he was born. I am sure she also had level 3 and 4 ultrasounds, which showed the baby to be healthy, no cardiac or bowel issues. Babies with DS arent sickly, needy babies, jared. They are just babies. Its been nice knowing you, Jared.

    He made a dumb ass decision and a dumb one for a man that could drop out at anytime and yet you knuckleheads are ready to vote for him to put a person in office that was a mayor of a small town (not much executive experience going on there, maybe if she was mayor of Dallas then i would say okay) & governor for less than 2 years by default???

    Something is not right in the Palin household. A parent who returns to work with a 3 day old baby is nothing to be proud of – whether it’s the mother or the father. Flying 8 hours in the third trimester is risky enough, flying 8 hours with leaking amniotic fluid is assinine. And, the snowmobiler/dad’s comment “Can’t have a fish picker from Texas”. What an idiot.

    As a public official, she is expected to be honest. It’s one thing to not discuss a “private issue”. It is a whole other thing to out right LIE to the public in an attempt to cover it up.

    I totally agree with this! Even if Palin is the mother it hardly puts her in a good light, to say nothing of a doctor who would allow an 8 month pregnant woman to be flying when she would have been at high risk simply due to her age.

    Third, there are many reasons the daughter wasn’t in school during that time and 5-8 months absense is a pretty big discrepancy.

    Finally, the fact that she had a slow leak is irrelevant. People can have leaks in their bag of waters for weeks before delivery.

    ANGIE #157 – in order to sue for libel the statement would have to be false. If she does not sue then I guess she cannot prove it as a false statement.

    It’s classical republican nonsense to describe the democrats as running scared… Not as scared as naming an unknown and unvetted individual as a running mate. If this story is true (and it can very easily be proven), then once again nice job RNC.

It makes me proud that McCain and Palin are featured in far more reputable and unbiased media outlets who focus on fair reporting. JustJared has obviously jumped on the celebrities for Obama campaign. I want JJ to post an intelligent and unbiased article on all of Obamas shortcomings (the list could take multiple posts), but of course he wouldn’t because that’s not the popular celebrity endorsed (nevermind intelligent) outlook! Got to pay those bills huh? Seriously I worry for our Country if Obama is our “leader”…

    remember da truth Says:

    People are actually repeating the Republican mantra that she’s had more experience than Obama!!

    You people will believe anything if it’s said often enough, and the Republicans got you to vote for Bush twice, using fear and lies, so I can believe you idiots will fall for it again.

    The “inexperience” is about Obama having now FOREIGN POLICY experience. And experience as a mayor of a town of 8,000 is not the same as being a state congressman for the state of Illinois, nor a senator on the national/international stage, nor being smart enough to pick someone as your running mate who will be able to get your message across to Congress.

    This stuff is crazy and I’m not sure I believe it, but heck, the woman has been found lying already on the bridge to nowhere, and is under ethical investigation (apparently her own state thought that there was enough there to spend $100,0000 to look further into her reasons for firing someone).

    Not only did she lie about the baby to protect her political career, but her daughter Bristol Palin is wearing a ring on her engagement finger. This is definitely damaging for her daughter, you people don’t realize the emotional stress of having to lie about a baby that you gave birth to. Sarah Palin needs to come clean about it. Sarah Palin is also under investigation for abusing her power by getting a state trooper fired… which so happens to be her ex brother in law that was in a custody fight. Sarah Palin had a lot of family photo’s up, but now the link is dead on her website. Either way John McCain only met her once before meeting her once again to tell her she was picked. McCain did NOT fully vet her. This die hard Clinton Loyalist will not support Sarah because she is far more conservative than George Bush. Sarah is the polar opposite of Hillary Clinton, and needs to stop using Hillary’s line of 18 million cracks. Sarah also called Hillary a whiner during the primaries.

    I don’t care if it had happened, but be honest about it. Painting herself as ethical when she’s the opposite is like McCain saying he’s a maverick when he votes with Bush, and being a “reformer” when his own campaign has ethical issues with lobbyists.

That is the problem with politics today, each side continously calling each other idiots and not working on strengthening our nation, on bettering the country for the people. Stop the attacks and focus on politics.
    If it were true that Democrats are oh so flawless and self-sacrificing this wouldn’t be the most useless congress in our history. Stop the blame game and work on getting both sides to work together for US instead of doing nothing and blaming the other side of the aisle.

    Sarah Palin story is an improbable story, but not an impossible story. Until we hear proof that her story is fictional, then and only then should be question her judgement. The story is starting to circulate now.

    However, it should be know that Ms. Palin is staunch opponent against abortion and birth control; and promotes only “abstinence only” policies.

    So we have a reason why she would lie, especially when she is a governor. One hopes it is not true that she lied about giving birth to a baby with downs syndrome.

    A Greek Says:

    This is UNBELIEVABLE. If this is true then this woman should not be allowed to deal with USA domestic and foreign policy. It is obvious she is against sex education, she did so many things to cover up her daughter´s -in all probability UNWANTED- pregnancy … imagine what this woman is capable of doing to cover up things that will not appear right to the American people if and when the republicans get ellected. I believe though that this is all a hoax since the repub party would have searched her background extensively before they would nominate her as VP. Nevertheless, she shouldn´t have gotten pregnant at 43 and thus producing a child with Down syndrome, I bet she is against contraception.

  246. 246
    why it is important Says:

    the reason this is relevant (if it is true) is because sarah palin has a pretty strong stance on abstinence-only education. it didn’t work for her family, but she could try to force it down other people’s throats by law. i don’t know if whether or not this is all true, but it definitely is news-worthy. I don’t mind if a 2 gay guys solicit sex from each other in a bathroom…but when one of them is a US congressman who supports anti-gay legislation, then the privacy argument falls to dust. same thing here. a mom protecting her little girl is fine….but her stance on abstinence only education takes a serious hit.

    in addition, one of her “badges of honor” is that SHE decided to have a baby known to have DS instead of aborting. that dog don’t hunt though is we’re talking about someone else’s baby. I admire her convicition if this really is Bristol’s child and Sarah still insisted on going through with it….but the real badge belongs to the daughter…

    lastly, if this baby IS hers (Sarah’s) then shame on her for flying after her water broke. again, her child,her decision…..but that’s pretty poor parenting in my opinion (and that of the americal medical association as well….and the flight authorities’, now that I think about it).

    The Republicans are fearing McCain’s decision as well. Especially the hardcore up at the top Republicans. Most of you guys are running around supporting a person that none of you knew or heard of until 3 days ago, and yet she is the best choice????

    If McCain wanted to chose a woman why didn’t he chose Kay Bailey Hutchinson or some other stronger republican woman that is known.

    He made a dumb ass decision and a dumb one for a man that could drop out at anytime and yet you knuckleheads are ready to vote for him to put a person in office that was a mayor of a small town (not much executive experience going on there, maybe if she was mayor of Dallas then i would say okay) & governor for less than 2 years by default??? I see why our country is in the state that it is in. Proof is in the republican pudding
    =====================================-
    A vote in a lot of cases is wasted. Many people don’t vote with their head, they vote with their emotions. It’s either their side or our side, not what is good for the country. Truthfully, most people couldn’t have a decent conversation on the issues because they don’t know them or what their candidate fully stands on.

    I’ve heard some ludicrous reasons for people voting for a candidate from she’s a woman to the NRA told me to vote for him. Oddly, Americans are in possession of a powerful tool, the vote; yet, they use it with the least amount of judgment. I’m not saying ALL Americans, but a great deal of them just don’t ‘get it’.

    Another point of emotions running the public is this ascertain that the story can’t be true. It COULD be true. More importantly it’s easy enough to prove that it’s NOT true and stop this train in it’s track. I’m assuming she didn’t have this child in the backwoods with a mid-wife. I don’t say she should do this simply for the public, but because she is running for the 2nd highest office in the land. She should be willing to set aside the notion that’s it’s personal to remove any taint from her nomination. I don’t care what her political affiliation is, I’d same the same of a Democrat.

    mcRN @ 08/31/2008 at 3:03 pm 80% of children born with down’s syndrome are born to women OVER the age of 35….not under as stated
    *********************************************

    I think it meant that the actual stats showed that 80% of children with DS are born to women under the age of 35, simply because those are the age where women are still fertile and there are many recorded births. Whereas women over 35 up are not that fertile anymore. so there are less birth hence less births with DS.

    although, it is true that the older the women giving birth the higher chances of them giving birth to DS babies, except that there arent many recorded births for old women compared to younger women, hence there are also few DS babies for those over 35 years old.

    Having said that, I think the story is just a fabrication, and I dont think Sarah Palin would accept the VP nomination if indeed there is such a cover up in their family.

    It is like something out of a movie. Tha’s what I was thinking when I read this story. Hopoefully, this will ruin McCain’s chances of being president. If he was to become president, he would just be another Bush, who supports war and terrorism. Bush and McCain are the American equivilent of Adolf Hitler

    For all of those of you who are saying that you wouldve protected your child by covering up for her and pretending to be pregnant must have no sense of what parenting is.. How is taking the responsibility for your child’s action helping them for their future, so what now? Everytime she does something wrong shes gonna run to mommy? is that how you teach your kids responsibility… this defintely made me change my mind about picking this lady, plus i find it offensive McCain pretends for us women to just vote for someone just because they are the same gender..

    Sarah Palin’s neanderthal views represent everything Hillary Rodham Clinton has worked against during her career. How DARE Palin use Hillary’s name and her achievement! Any Hillary supporter who would now vote for McCain simply because he is using Palin as a pawn should be ashamed of themselves. We supported Hillary because she was the right person for the job, NOT simply because she is a woman. Hillary would not want her legacy to be Vice-President Palin, an anti-gay, anti-choice, hardcore conservative.

    Sarah Palin, I know Hillary Clinton and you are no Hillary Clinton.

    Sarah Palin’s Mother-In-Law: Considering Voting For Barack Obama

    WASILLA, Alaska – Sarah Palin’s hometown rallied around her as mayor – now Republicans wonder if the rest of America will warm up to the surprise pick from cold country.

    Though her mother-in-law has doubts.

    Faye Palin admitted she enjoys hearing Barack Obama speak, and still hasn’t decided which way she’ll vote.

    “We don’t agree on everything. But I respect her passion,” she said. “Being pro-life is who Sarah is.”

    Faye Palin said the governor never considered ending her recent pregnancy when genetic testing showed her son Trig, born in April, would have Down syndrome.

    “There was no question,” she said. “She was going to have that baby.”

    With a population of just 6,715, Wasilla is a fast-growing railroad town that got its start as a mail and supply hub linking the coastal towns of Seward and Knik to Alaska’s interior mining camps along the Iditarod dog sled trail.

    Scores of reporters descended Saturday on the A-frame wood hunting lodge where Sarah Palin’s parents live amid hundreds of sets of trophy antlers and a taxidermy collection that includes a giant moose head and a full-grown mountain lion.
    PHOTOS: SEE MORE OF SARAH PALIN

    Faye Palin said the entire family was shocked by the news on Friday.

    “I’m not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she’s a woman and a conservative. Well, she’s a better speaker than McCain,” Faye Palin said with a laugh. “People will say she hasn’t been on the national scene long enough. But I believe she’s a quick study.”

    She said people doubted Sarah Palin when she ran for City Council, but that her daughter-in-law had a “singular focus.”

    “She was out there with [then-young son] Track, pulling him around from house to house in a wagon,” she said.

    Sarah Palin is well known as a former high school basketball star, cross-country runner, beauty queen, hockey mom, city council member and Wasilla’s mayor from 1996 to 2007.

    “I think it’s great. She’s a hometown girl from Smallville, USA,” said Felix Bruno, 43, a masonry contractor who plowed her driveway. “She’s not afraid to speak her mind. She really dropped the hammer on the politicians fleecing Alaska.”

    At the local Mat-Su Family Restaurant in downtown Wasilla, a Bible-study group that includes two ex-mayors from neighboring cities cheered her pick as McCain’s running mate.

    “She’s an excellent social conservative, fiscal conservative and political conservative,” said Tom Baird, 68, a Vietnam veteran who sat with his Gideon Bible opened to 1Corinthians. “If she can energize the conservative base, it won’t matter if she gets the women’s vote.”

    “This is a really nice person, and she’s disarming in that way,” said George Carte, 67, a retired geophysicist who was mayor of neighboring Palmer when Palin was mayor of Wasilla.

    “I was very impressed with her as mayor,” said Carte. “She did some housecleaning with her department heads. She had to learn about the sewers, the libraries, public safety.”

    But even with her impressive approval rating, Palin still has work to do even in her own hometown.

    “I’m still leaning toward Obama. I think Sarah has been really good for our state, and it would be wonderful to see her in the White House, but she’s on the ticket with McCain, and I can’t vote for McCain,” said Eileen Moe, 33, a second grade teacher at Iditarod Elementary, which Palin’s kids attended.

    “If it was her running for president, there’d be no question in my mind,” Moe said. “The Republicans right now are about big business and big oil. I don’t see Sarah as a staunch Republican in that way.”

    Not everyone is convinced her experience as mayor and governor are enough for a vice president who would be next in line to the presidency.

    “I wouldn’t say she’s qualified,” said Bill Gleason, 60, a contractor from nearby Big Lake. “I want someone with a little more experience. ”

    Sarah,
    Gustav is the sign that God tell you to go home taking care of your 4 month baby with special need. You chose to receive this gift and can’t run away from your duty caring for him. He’s crying now for mother!
    If you don’t accept your God’s call anymore then you and people voted for you already know what will happen in the near future. In the end, you’re going home anyway in defeat and suffering.
    PS: Please relay this message to Sarah. She seems very busy now doing something else and not hearing her baby cries.

    ace tomato Says:

    I’m amazed at the amount of supposedly liberal people ragging on Sarah Palin for going to work right after having a baby.

    So women can have both careers and families for the Republicans, but the Dems say they have to stay home if they have babies.

    What?????

    On the Obama/Palin experience issue – here is a direct question. We know what Sarah Palin achieved in her terms as Governor of Alaska.

    What are Obama’s achievements as a Senator? I read he supported a bill against nuclear missile proliferation, but that’s been a policy for both parties and all Americans for decades. It’s hardly innovative or any sort of fresh approach to anything.

    Seriously, could some of you list out what Obama has achieved while in public office? What did he DO as Senator that makes you think he is effective?

    I say GO Jared for posting this!

    My mother is a physician and she said there is NO WAY any medical professional would allow a woman 8 months pregnant leaking amniotic fluid to get on a plane for 8 hours before seeking medical attention. THEN-rather go to a large hospital with more resources go to a small out of the way hospital that does not have a means to deal with a HIGH RISK birth such as Downs Syndrome baby who are prone to any number of medical complications. There is also no record of this baby being born at that hospital per the hospital website…

    There is a great deal of protocol that an airline has to go through to let a woman at her fragile condition fly and NO one on the plane noticed she was in labor ????

    Although she was protecting her daughter , I also think she did not want to upset her Evangelical base by having a daughter who engaged in pre-marital sex and had a child out of wedlock.
    She certainly had no shame using the baby as a political pawn to advance her anti-abortion agenda.

    Any fair minded person would find these whole sequence of events to be very ODD AND QUESTIONABLE.

    Grace Says:

    Some of you people arent very bright. What the artical is saying is that she pretended to be pregnant while it was her daughter who was really pregnant. And it is bad that she did that because she lied about something as small as her daughter being pregnant. So if she is going to lie about that than what else could she be lying about or could she lie about if she were to become president. I dont understand how ANYONE could feel comfortable with either her or Mccain becoming president. Obama actually seems to be a very very smart man who can run our country, unlike Mccain and this Palin’s lady. Its really upsetting for me to think that I could be living in a country that is going to be even more distroyed than it already is, And that terrifies me because I am only 15 so hopefully I have a long time to live. But I dont want to live in a country that we cant be proud of, and if Mccain becomes president than that is just what is it going to be…a country we cannot be proud of(not that I am proud of it now). Why would we want to be in war for generations? I just want this war to end! But Mccain seems like he just wants to win..even if that means risking EVERYTHING. Obama doesnt care if ending the war may seem like he is a quitter, All he cares about is what’s right for the country and whats right for our country is to get out of this war soon..but also safely and that is what Obama will do. Although Mccain may not want to make our country worse than it is..it will be if he becomes president, Because he wants to stay in the war..and idk about you but I dont want this war to possibly still be going on when I have kids. I dont want my kids born into a country falling appart and fighting whoever for God only know’s what reason Mccain would say why we are going to war with them.

    Yes and I am only 15…probably surprising to some of you that a 15 year old could be so interested in our country and whats right for it. But I truely do believe that Obama is the man who will get our country back on track to being a place where I can be proud to say I live in.

    I don’t understand the people posting on here saying this story is bogus. It doesn’t seem far-fetched to me at all. Covering up a teen pregnancy is nothing new. It was done way back in the day all the time. Jack Nicholson grew up thinking his mother was his sister. And since republicans, in general, hold on to values that were strong in the 1950′s (anit-abortion, anti-gay, anti-feminist) it’s not that surprising that she would cover up for her daughter. Clearly she would not want her Republican puritan image scarred by the misdeed of her daughter.

    I’m glad you reported this. So much is made about character. I am sure if this was Obama bloggers would report it as well. I find it interesting about this cover up if it is true. It just shows the cultural divide. Minority groups are criticized about teen pregnancies. “Middle class” people and “Upper class” people get pregnant too. They just cover it up in an elaborate scheme. I realize if she was protecting her child, but a lie is still a lie.

    I applaud McCain on picking a woman, although I think he waited until Obama’s speech to decide who he would pick. This was not a proactive decision. It was a strategic move. He is not pro women.. This is fact not an attack. I hope people make the best choice not the easy choice.

I am confused with being my grandson’s mother, I have raised him for the last 5 years. So she did not say, NO my 16 yr old is the mother.

    To me Says:

    I feel that if she is pro-life then why hide your daughters pregnancy??? It could have been used as an example and an example as to why abstaining from sex until marriage is good (since she don’t won’t to promote sex education of any kind).

    I think she hid it (if true) because she is against sex education in the school system and a strict conservative and she needed to keep face. That old hide the pregnancy shame game is pitiful and it only hurts the life of the child that was born in the future. Because no matter what you all think or say that support this action say a LIE is A LIE. If she is a true Christian and not a Evangelical Religious Man Made Rule follower, then she would know that God would not approve of any lie. No matter what it is. That along with many other sins is what you are redeem for through the Blood of Christ.

    Yet she chose not to trust God with her situation (again if true) and be honest to the situation, but instead created a curse upon her family with covering up her daughter’s pregnancy. I hope she has asked for forgiveness but she couldn’t have because she is still perputrating the lie as truth.

    By the way for you folks who wonder way I say she has cursed her family is because she has put generational curse upon them with the spirit of lying & a spirit of deceit upon her childrens head and her children’s children head. Sarahs actions will affect one or all of her children and future children until someone breaks that curse that has been created.

    If you go to these lenghts to cover up your daughter being a teenage mum and if you are an intelligent woman (despite some questionnable moral positions, she’s still a governor after all!), I think you invent a much less far fetched story and stick to a more basic story…

    hm Says:

    First of all this is a woman who believes that women and young girls who are raped or victims of incest should be forced to have babies by the men who raped them. Second of all she doesn’t believe in abortion even to save the life of the mother. So, the fact that she kept a child with a disorder isn’t even a story because she is so extreme in her abortion position.
    It is hysterical that Republicans are now saying it’s no big deal that she may have lied about having a child rather than say that her daughter actually gave birth to the baby. And btw, anyone who watches the tape when McCain announced her as the pick in Ohio, look at the daughter in the background holding the baby. I noticed on Friday that she looked very maternal. She was so attentive and loving that I even remarked to someone that she must take care of that child a lot because she almost seemed like the child’s mother. And then I find out that she may be the mother.
    More importantly, if Sarah Palin would lie about this what else would she lie about. Remember, it’s a question of character and the same people who were critical of Edwards for lying about his relationship and baby should be up in arms that Palin may have lied as well.
    Hopefully, the Enquirer will do an investigation and those at Fox who helped spread the story will be equally vigorous in spreading this one.

    I guess that is better for an abstinence preaching mother.

    Wait…she went back to work three days after delivering a child with down syndrome? WTF? You flew on a plane after your water broke? Endangering your DS child? What mother does that?

    I see some whining ass conservatives on here. It’s okay to bash the liberals but when the shoe is turned, you no likey?

    I agree with #268, do your research before you post.

    Does the risk of Down syndrome increase with the mother’s age? Yes. The risk of Down syndrome increases from about 1 in 1,250 at age 25, to 1 in 1,000 at age 30, 1 in 400 at age 35, 1 in 100 at age 40 and 1 in 30 at age 45 (6). Women over age 35 have been traditionally considered most likely to have a baby with Down syndrome. However, about 80 percent of babies with Down syndrome are born to women who are under age 35, as younger women have far more babies (2).

    Why are you guys so sure this story is false. Obviously none of you have been pregnant. lets first look at she was supposedly 7months along in Mar. (if she had a good doctor they would have advised her to not fly at that time) and if her water broke nobody would have allowed her to fly anyway. If you look at the picture her daugher actually looks pregnant. That is very commendable that she wanted to help her daughter out and raise this child as her own but she choose to lie about who the actual mother is. People are going to start to think if she can lie about this what else is she lying about.

    Jingo Says:

    If Sarah Palin is the mother, it begs the question as to why she kept herself so thin during her pregnancy. Is it possible that an extreme fitness routine may have caused her to have the baby prematurely? What does that say about her judgement?

    Personally, I believe it indicates great judgement. After all, she was the hottest Governor going and what woman wants to lose her figure for a baby with some bad chromosomes. Now maybe she should have known better than to get preggers in her mid-forties, but I’m sure it’s hard to keep “First Dude” Todd Palin off her and they undoubtedly don’t use contraception because it makes God cry.

    You can make a stat work for any situation. You have to look at the numbers. Yes, 80% of ds babies are born to mothers under 35 years of age. HOWEVER, that is because that is due to the sheer multitude of people having kids in the childbearing years.

    A women over 35 has a 1 in 35 chance of having a baby is DS whereas a 16 year old would have a 1 in 1000 chance. Which do you think is more likely?? Use your heads.

    Joy Says:

    Cruel beyond belief. Leave the kids alone. If it is true -

    Maybe the daughter just couldn’t face the reality of her pregnancy until abortion was no longer an option, and had to deliver the baby. Tests show the baby to be a mongoloid. Who is going to adopt the baby? Not many. The mother makes the best choice for her daughter/child.

    So, saving her daughter from possible public ridicule (conservative area/religious beliefs in Alaska) by claiming the child to be her own – this could now come out for the entire world to judge. If Palin decides to decline her VP candidacy, or if the McCain/Polin ticket loses – this young 16 year old girl will feel responsible. She will become the focus of the world.

    Now, maybe Sarah should have further protected her daughter by saying “no thank you” to McCain. But I can understand it. You deal with something and it is over. Sarah probably feels that this child is now her child – just as if she had given birth. And, she made a sacrifice. Why another? Why shouldn’t she still be able to reach for her own goals?

    Cruel beyond belief to publish something that would hurt a young 16 year old girl so much. Remember all of those articles about how ugly Chelsea Clinton was? It just turns my stomach. Leave the kids out of the nastiness. Mean. Mean. Mean.

    Now that the Republicans have a possible scandal it’s okay. It’s a mother protecting her cub, it’s a family matter and should be kept private. As long as it is someone else you want to grill them but when the crap is in your own backyard you want to bury it and move on. Well I tell you what we will know if that kid is hers soon once it’s features start coming in.

    This could very well be a cover up and once they are elected in what 65 days from now it won’t matter once the voting is done and they possibly win!

    She is under investigation because she is accused of abusing her power. Dismissing people from their jobs because they wouldn’t be used to exact her revenge. What kind of person would even consider her as a running mate with that kind of cloud over her head?

    Down Syndrome (formerly called mongolism), named after Dr. Langdon Down, who described these children in 1866, occurs in one out of seven hundred births. The chance of having a Down Syndrome baby INCREASES with the age of the mother.

    Women under age 23—1 in 2,000 births

    I remember being 16 years old, and being so concerned with image, being liked, fitting in. Can’t even imagine this child having to deal with even the rumor. I pity her. I taught high school for a while. SO HARD TO BE A TEENAGER. It repulses me that there is so little concern and consideration for children. LEAVE THEM OUT OF THE GAME. This is a kid. Not an adult. This is not the same as a candidate having an affair, etc., etc. Sixteen is a young and very vulnerable age, and it isn’t fair to take this girl down – in the quest to take down Sarah Palin and John McCain.

    For all of you people saying that it’s ok because she was protecting her daughter, NOT SO.

    IF this story is true, it’s obvious that Sarah Palin was only protecting HERSELF and her career. Think about it: you’re a republican who platformed on family values, which I’m sure included teaching abstinence along with being anti-abortion. Your 16 year-old daughter gets knocked up, and she doesn’t want to lose the baby. Your career could be in jeapordy, because you’re supposed to be a model parent who wouldn’t have a 16-year old daughter with a child!

    tellin it like it is Says:

    OK, whoa whoa whoa whoa, Jared is not the one who “fabricated” this story. Search for Bristol Palin on google and you’ll come up with a ton of hits about this situation.

    Basically, everything EXCEPT the chances of down syndrome is WAY to sketchy.

    I acknowledge that there are also rumors that Trig is the child of Bristol and her older brother, but I think that is stretching it a bit.

    The bottom line in this case, and the bottom line in any political scandal is unpure and simple. SHE LIED. She lied to our faces at the convention.

    Just put it all together, 16 year old get’s pregnant, is pulled out of school approximately 6-8 months before Trig is born due to mononucleosis (the kissing disease), Sarah doesn’t want everyone knowing the governor’s 16 year old daughter got pregnant, Sarah covers the fact up by faking her own pregnancy, Bristol goes into labor early, Sarah flys back to Alaska to be with her when she is born, the Palins choose a smaller hospital for delivery for a low key delivery, and a “more private” atmosphere for the “switch” to take place.

    Hence, hundreds of readers arguing over whether or not it was right on http://www.justjared.com.

    Plus, at the DNC, Sarah CERTAINLY did not appear to have delivered 4 months ago, however Bristol, (who did appear to have delivered 4 months prior,) was carrying the baby. One would have assumed that the father would have carried the baby out.

    Also, this new picture of Palin during one of her previous pregnancies looks QUITE pregnant, how one should look in the later stages of their pregnancy, and as a mother bares more children, her stomach grows bigger with each pregnancy, NOT smaller.

    Just some food for thought.

    AMAZING lack of understanding about the alleged issue here.

    So…you are a governor, your VERY YOUNG teen gets pregnant (parenting skills, anyone? guess that abstinence thing doesn’t work ALL the time, eh?)

    As a parent of a pregnant teen, you decide that you’ll raise the child as your own (perhaps the girl agreed with that, perhaps she was coerced into it). Ok, so far, so good. This happens a lot. The child-mother has very diminished outlook, facing life as a very young mother. It is not uncommon for the grandparents to adopt the child in this scenario.

    BUT….

    You’re the governor. You can’t carry this off with the kind of low profile you’d like. The child (daughter) will be known to be the actual mother, and you’ll not be able to carry off the real goal, which was to hide the little girl’s unfortunate indiscretion.

    Instead, you try to pull off a “clever” ruse…you claim to be pregnant yourself! you feel confident you’ll pull it off…but there’s a snag. The young child-mother goes into labor WAY TOO EARLY. In fact, it happens while you’re in texas! so you fly all the way back to a little podunk hospital in the middle of nowhere, alaska, to “have the baby”.

    Problem is, ANY obgyn would IMMEDIATELY tell you to go to the nearest major hospital, and start getting care! But you can’t…because the doctors there would find you to be “not pregnant”.

    The reasons this is awful, if true, are several. First off, it represents a hypocrisy of monumental proportions. secondly, it will, at the very least, involve an actual crime, falsifying birth records. thirdly, it involves another very real actual crime, conspiring with others, who will have to be bribed or paid off in some way, to cover up the crime.

    This could have been avoided, and would be ok, if she had just “adopted” her grandson.

    I’ll bet that we’ll find that the obgyn has destroyed his records, the hospital has destroyed the records, there’s a conspicuously absent paper trail.

    My guess is that they “planned a home birth”, but the baby foiled those plans by coming premature…and if you care about the life of the baby even the least, you immediately abandon the idea of home birth and get your laboring butt to the nearest emergency room.

    Again, the problem with all this, if it is true, is that it is a grand deception, and at the very least, it would put the Vice President of the United States at risk for blackmail, and at best, it means that a deceitful liar is again ensconced in the white house.

    It’s a classic sign of ABUSE OF POWER…it’s a pathological lie.

    One–freedom of the press, Just Jared is about entertainment and politicians can be very entertaining when they are being naughty–>looks like this lady might have dirty laundry
    Two–The people are entrusting this woman to be an honest public servant. We are literally going to put our lives in her hands if we elect her into office. McCain and old man, and that is just a plain fact.
    She may send our children in to battle. She may start wars that we have to pay for. If she is someone who engineers secrets, then I don’t know that I want to entrust her with my children’s lives, or my tax dollars.
    I am neither Red nor Blue, I am just looking out for someone who might come along and look out for me and my children.
    I am glad that she loves her children. I am a mother too. I bet her and I could spend hours sharing great stories about how wonderful our children are. But I am not electing her to be a mother. I am electing two people to run a country, get us out of this economic mess, get us out of this terrible war, reverse yet another horrible deficit, fix this energy crisis, and maybe create a better future for all our children.
    I know she wants that, but it isn’t achieved with lies. Did anyone watch that video, she doesn’t look pregnant, and she is walking on wet streets–in high heels–fast paced–in a skirt! Pregnant?
    I don’t want a liar. I would have really respected her if she would have just said, “I adopted my grandson who has DS.” She would have had my respect 10 fold, now she has my doubts.

    I do not believe a doctor would tell a woman who is carrying a down syndrome baby that it is okay to get on a plane and RISK an unhealthy birth when there is a hospital in Texas she could have went to. What woman water breaks, she goes on to deliver a speech, catch a flight to Alaska, drives to another hospital 45 minutes away, and then goes back to work three days after giving birth to a child with a disability she has NEVER dealt with?

    This isn’t liberal versus conservative. It’s truth versus a lie.

    Her daughter does look pregnant in that photo, but not enough to be “proof”. It looks very likely though.

The woman doesn’t even believe in equal wages, let alone personal choice. I am surprised that she thinks woman should even be allowed to vote!

    By 2012 under the McCain/Palin ticket..

    The poor will beyond help,

    the middle class will be gone,

    Roe vs Wade will be over turned by the conservative judges they appoint and more children will be committing suicide, attempting home abortions and permanently damaging themselves, or going to states that will still vote for it to be legal,

    the rich will have more than ever…

    the oil companies and the terrorists will still be making money off of us since all the Alaskan and off shore drilling will benefit is the oil companies..it won’t lower the price of gas for 30 years and even then it will only last us about 10 and then we are right back where we started.

    and we will have to out source the refining to China and other countries..once again no job for Americans,

    the off shore drilling will negatively effect our 700 billion dollar tourism industry.

    polar bear will be extinct..but who cares??

    more children will be born into poverty with fewer programs..especially the programs that would assist you to take care of a disabled child (nice legacy you will leave women in your own predicament Palin!)

    we will still be fighting the war in Afghanistan and Iraq,

    the soldiers who come back will have fewer programs (slashed by McCain) to assist them with mental health and medial issues, no veterans assistance programs for continued education, or protection of their benefits (check out MIA/POW against McCain and Veterans against McCain),

    Osama Bin Laden will still be loose and planing attacks against us and our foreign allies,

    we will continue with hot headed warmonger McCain to burn bridges with other world leaders,

    McCain will still have more homes than he can count due to his pill pooping addict of an heiress wife, but the majority of Americans will have lost their homes, have had their credit ruined and will be unable to qualify again under the new standards.. yet they will bail out the greedy mortgage companies and banks that made this housing crisis possible.

    So if you are a Hillary supporter who ends up voting for McCain than you had better take it all in and realize you helped to make it possible. You are not to complain..take your medicine..you asked for it. You are responsible for what happens. You are responsible as are all who voted for Bush for each American soldier and innocent man, woman and child who is killed in Iraq and Afghanistan..the blood is on your hands too.

    Sarah has defined herself as a working mother of 5 (which sounds way more heroic than 4), one of which has Down’s syndrome (which also sounds heroic) in her platform as running Vice President.

    If neither of these things are true… then her credibility is in question. Suggesting that you are not what you are is misrepresentation. I find that strangely important in a running Vice-Presidential candidate.

    Unfortunately the side-bar to this are the suggestions that Sarah may have assumed this role to protect her daughter and that hiding the pregnancy was the right thing to do.

    Firstly, if this is true, I doubt that Sarah is protecting Bristol. It seems more about Sarah not losing face in her community allowing her to continue the façade needed for success in political office . Also I would think to hide both parents’ shame of a teen pregnancy.

    From what I can gather from the reports on Daily Kos, Bristol seems blithely getting out and about (and into 3 police reports they say), which gives me the impression she is rather care free.

    When Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant her mother did not feel the need to pretend and lie. There are plenty of parents out there that would rather this had not happened to their teenage daughters but don’t revert to deceit.

    Secondly, I don’t see how the decision to hide this be considered in any way moral or faith based. In fact it is probably completely irreligious to turn the mother into a sister and the grandmother into a mother.

    I hope this story isn’t true because it is an abomination for a child (Bristol) to be asked to live a lie.

    who committed fornication? who committed adultery? Are you falsely accusing the teenage daughter too? You are not contented with smearing the innocent baby and the concerned mother, but you RUMOR MONGERS want to victimize the sweet teenage daughter too.

    Are your eye balls red and are you spitting all over your keyboard??
    Calm down!
    Until this is proven one way or the other, I am not making any judgements about anyone! And even if it is true, I am not judging the daughter. At 16, it is easy to make mistakes – hey, it is easy to make mistakes at any age!
    If it does turn out to be true, the issue is that a future VP could do something so misleading ….
    What I have really taken issue with is actually neither of the Palin women! It is rather with hysterical rantists like you who are so rightoeus!
    And before you judge me, yes I am a Christian, and I do go to church, but I happen to think that right-wing foaming-at-the-mouth Christians are as dangerous as those from any other religion!

    There is nothing to this baby story. (By the way .Sarah is using a breast pump on the campaign trail). If there was any evidence, the corrupt Republicans in Alaska that she outed would have smeared her with this. They couldn’t because there is NO basis for it.
    This is a sick attempt to smear a decent woman, her daughter, and a baby. This coming from the party of Michael Moore who was gleeful that a killer hurricane was on its way to NOLA so that the Rep. Convention would be disrupted. Oh, never mind the deaths because this party kills babies anyways. And what’s wrong with sacrificing 9 months to give a child up for adoption and let it live 90 years?!! Such selfish shortsightedness is pure BILE.
    I don’t want a candidate with so called “experience” which means years of sitting in office with your good ole boys and getting nothing done but getting rich. Translation…Biden. He is a heartbeat away from his 3rd brain aneurysm. It’s not how much time you have been in office, but what you DO when in office and Palin KICKS BUTT!! If Obama and his wife were to live in the White House, George Washington would roll in his grave because it would be the first time it would be occupied by people who do NOT love America despite their denials. You can judge people by the company they keep….Rev. Wright the hatespouter among many others and some being Communists!! Obama’s shine is coming off and the dull brass is showing. He is all air and no substance. He just said on CNN that the trouble with the Republicans is that they want people to pull themselves up with their boot straps but you can’t if you have no boots. Translation–take from the workers to give to the nonworkers and WTH???!!. He knows he’s in deep s*** and regrets the Biden choice. Hilary supporters are disgusted and they are leaving in droves to the McCain side. It’s over, folks. Nov. 4th will just make it official…..MCCAIN & PALIN 08

How about the one right after it, #161, who actually doesn’t sound as stupid, but is. Offering up some helpful possibilities for all to ponder on the availability of pregnancy prosthetics, in all different stages of pregnancy, no less, that might have been used. You all have ravaged a sixteen year old kid, you are her judge and jury. She’s guilty, guilty, guilty, right? She’s “fast”! Good bye to Jared, good bye to many posters I am familiar with who have shocked me like Besane. What you’ve done is actually criminal. You are all incredible losers. Let’s hope for your sake no one in your tiny little worlds EVER has the chance to savagely pounce on some crap gossip stupidity like this about someone in your family, and people blindly do what you have done–BELIEVE IT. The true disaster here is not politics, it is gullibility and hatefulness, obviously alive and well and still here on display, as ignorant as possible, so many hours later.

    And it is irresponsible to assert Obama/Biden had anything whatsoever to do with this story. She has been the veep candidate since Friday. Obama’s campaign would not have had enough time to create such an elaborate story.

    The person who wrote the story has clearly been researching it for quite some time and has provided what he considers to be concrete facts that her “son” might be her grandson. Like it or not Palin is officially a public figure that could be the next veep of the USA. The public has the right to know if she can be trusted.

    I’m not so sure. She did very well against a seasoned Senator Frank Murkowski. And we all know Biden loves to stick his foot in his mouth. He can be a real ass at times.

    We Dems are foolish to so easily dismiss her out of hand. She is not some dummy. She’s not a shrinking violet and she will get herself prepared for any debates. She certainly isn’t afraid of hard work.

    Palin was not chosen to appeal to Hillary supporters. She was chosen to appeal to the more conservative voters and the christians. And she has energized that base of voters. They are very excited now about this ticket and they weren’t excited about McCain before.

    Enough of this BS rumor. Jared, for gods sake don’t put up a picture from 2006 and claim that she looks pregnant for a 2008 delivery. Idiot. All that picture does is show the girl has a fat belly naturally. After all this nonsensical talk, the poor girl is probably on a bread and water diet as we speak puking her guts up.

    Palin gave birth to her youngest child, Trig, on April 18, 2008, while in office as governor. Testing early in pregnancy revealed the fetus had Down syndrome. Palin said she was sad at first but they now feel blessed that God chose them.[99] Though she announced that she was pregnant only during the start of her third trimester and one month before Trig was born, her pregnancy is reported to have surprised Alaskans, including her staff.[100] After her water broke, on the day of Trig’s delivery, Palin delivered a keynote address in Texas and then flew 8 hours to Alaska. She and her husband drove a further 50 minutes to Mat-Su Valley Regional Medical Center, where she gave birth seven hours later.[101] Palin returned to office quickly, just three days after giving birth to Trig.[25] Palin’s decision to have the baby has been applauded by the pro-life community.

    Palin is greater than Obama Says:

    Sarah “Barracuda” Palin never shrink from responsibilities.


    McCain said that “as governor, she has had enormous responsibilities, none of which Senator Obama had. When she was in government, he was a community organizer. When she was taking tough positions against her own party, Senator Obama was voting present 130 times in the state legislature. On every tough issue, whatever it was, she was taking them on. That’s the kind of judgment that I’m confident that we need in Washington.”

    Just because you have a source cited does not mean the source is legitimate.

Voting is indeed a personal choice, so keep it personal and do not go out of your way to force other people to believe your way (which he unfortunately probably has because ignorant people will read this blog as fact). “both sides should know more about the ppl running for the offices… be those infos malicious, truthful, patriotic or whatever… these are the things that give us an idea of the kind of ppl they are” uh, are you serious? both sides SHOULD know the candidates but they definitely SHOULD knowTRUTH. If people spew untruthful information all over the media (which they do) then we don’t REALLY know the candidates, dumbass.

    I understand why #457 is so upset. There are some real hateful comments being posted, but it is the season once again when politics brings it out. I am glad this is being aired. I hadn’t heard the story and to be honest I like to see it exposed.
    We have had supremisists posting hate flyers on our cars stating that to vote for Obama is wrong and unChristian. Just like some of the religious nut jobs are now trying to turn Palin into a Saint for having a Downs baby. She isn’t a saint because she went through with it. Democrats and Republicans alike make this choice to have these children. It isn’t just one set of politics and supporting Obama isn’t a vote for baby killers, so cut it out.
    If she lied, she is a liar and therefore a risk politically to the country.
    If the Republicans know she lied then they are covering it up, and just playing the voters as idiots. I think putting in a token inexperienced woman with a 4 month old special needs child was a cheep trick anyway. I work with special needs children. That baby does not need mommy distracted.
    I was fine with Hilary Clinton in office with her attention on us in the office, and if it were a new father of a special needs child I would have the same problem too. Parents of newborn special needs children have all sorts of problems, so it isn’t just about who gave birth. It is who is going to tend to the needs. Downs children have unique needs and are more prone to high instances of health problems in the first years of life. That means distractions too. Mother or father, this is not the best time for her to be in a presidential position–she should step down and go for it at a later time. If she really is about the child and now about selfish pursuits.
    I want leaders who are focused on the needs of the country, get us back on track, because the current leadership has really messed things up terribly. Focus!

    If she was due in mid May then she was 24 – 25 weeks pregnant in that picture. That’s 6 months pregnant and yes she looks about 6 months pregnant in that picture.

    There is no proof or smoking gun to prove this. She might of collaborated the birth of her some to make it more appealing, but her having another child would be consistent with part of her moral views.

    There is a huge difference between protecting ones loved ones and lying to the voters. Part of her appeal is that she is now an inspiration for many of people McCain wants to get their votes. To be inspired by a story and to find out that it is not true is never “So what?” The story is most likely untrue.

    Lola Says:

    Even if there are parts of this story that are inconsistent, somethings really have me scratching my head. Like someone pointed out, the daughter holds the child like she is the mother and Sarah holds him like she is the grand mother. When you google Trig Palin, his complexion looks a bit darkker than his parents.

    Most imprtantly, why haven’t we had a strong denial at this stage? This story has been around for more than 24 hours. It is potentially damaging. You would thing the republicans would be moving quickly to quash it.

    matt Says:

    The preg pic from years ago seems to be of another woman, with Palin on the left (why her family thought this was a cool pic of her to send out, I don’t know, but it’s not hard to believe her elderly parents thought that was their own daughter since I believe the two are cousins—she is the current mayor of Wasilla).

    But aside from all the images, facts remain: NO pictures of Palin taken AFTER her surprise announcement that do show her pregnant prove that she was. If you were faking a pregnancy, you would obviously fake it after the announcement.

    And no images, not of her or of Bristol, have anything to do with the bizarre chain of events:

    announcing in your 7th month (? why ?)
    total shock recorded by all her closest associates, including her staff
    flying in your 8th month
    staying around to do a speech and not seeking treatment after amniotic fluid leaked
    flying BACK to Alaska with a stop in Seattle after the fluid leaked
    driving to her smaller hometown hospital to give birth
    suddenly, she doesn’t have to give birth so urgently after all, so labor is induced
    no announcement in the hospital’s list of babies
    rampant rumors in Alaska about this birth that far pre-date her selection by McCain

    Face it: There is a genuine mystery here, either of a faked pregnancy or of a crazy decision-maker. Either would have been caught by McCain’s vetters…except she was not formally vetted.

    This was a crack-pot, last-second, shoot-for-the-moon decision.

    Once voters simmer down about her gender and focus on the issues, as they do after Labor Day in every presidential election, she is toast. Baby or no baby.

    Because a CLEAR majority of this country is pro-choice, and I’m willing to bet most sensible voters will panic at the thought of this small-town mayor turned small-state (population-wise) governor as commander in chief if McCain—already shown to be reckless—passes away.

    You guys are missing the point!! IF it is true, this has seriously damaged her character and political platform. For someone who is extremely pro-life, anti-birth control, and says abstinence is the ONLY way. Which we all know is unrealistic..teens are going to do what they are going to do no matter how much u preach to them…so what exactly do these pro-lifers expect to happen to all those babies?? Not everyone has a mother that can or will take the baby in and cover it up like it never happened. Her policies are proving that it will take us back to the dark ages! Wake Up people! Having someone like Palin in office will set women back 1000 yrs.

    IF the story is true…she is a liar, committed fraud, and cant even stand by her own convictions! Disgusting!

    I was on the fence before but now Im for the Dems.

  511. 511
    Sandy Says:

    Also, do you realize if this is true..she committed insurance fraud by claiming the baby as her own. Had officials lie on the birth certificate and so much more. There is no way this woman should be one heartbeat away from the presidency.

    Another point, for all u idiots who say if the daughter gave birth why did the mother go into labor. She obviously was faking the whole thing! No mother is her right mind would have her water break, and then hop aboard a flight for 10 hrs when it is a high risk pregnancy, and your fifth child. She couldve had the “baby” at any time and put his life in extreme danger without being near a level 1nicu. The only explanation that makes sense is that she was never pregnant. She heard the daughter went into labor and THATS why she rushed home.

    If this is all true, no matter what the reason is behind her covering up her daughter’s unwanted pregnancy, it makes her the wrong person to lead our country when we are trying to rebuild our leadership position in the world. While we have so many more qualified and experienced women out there who can do the job without drama. She is ruining all the future chances for any woman who will qualify to run our country. IMHO She wants her 15 minutes of fame so bad that she didn’t care about exposing her daughter’s unfortunate life event. Does she think that nobody will find her dirty laundry? She has no common sense and do we want someone like that who might be just a heartbeat away to become the President of USA???

    Dave Says:

    Saying your daughter is pregnant doesn’t establish that she is in fact pregnant. If — and it is a big if — Palin was willing to pretend to be pregnant herself, she could just as easily pretend that her daughter was five months pregnant now to prove that the daughter could not have given birth in April.

    This skeptical reasoning of mine should not be taken to mean that I think Palin is lying. Only that her statement in itself does nothing to establish the truth if her original claim, since her statement today is also just a claim.

    We need evidence of the her daughter’s pregnancy, not a mere assertion of it.

    Now, Obama has to do the right thing, and keep Bristol out of the debate. Keep abortion out of the debate too.

    Too bad this girl has to have her teen pregnancy out there for the world to see , but when your mom is running as VP and has the possibilty of becoming pres of the U.S.A., what an______________ example for teen pregnancy ?

    And that is why we keep the oil companies rich, Bush, Cheney and their families are all set for a life time, people are losing their homes and jobs. If it hasn’t affected you in some way perhaps you don’t care and will just continue to be deaf, dumb and blind.

    There is no shame in a parent doing whatever they can to “cover” for, or protect their children. However that does not extend to possibly registering a chld’s correct parents falsely. Claiming Insurance coverage for a child that is actually a grandchild.
    Of course the bar gets set higher if one accepts an invitation to the national stage, as Sarah Palin did. She should have known that “we the people” would want to know if what she says and does, matches what she says she will do and has done.
    On the upside, the McCin camp can now use the Gustaf inspired “interuption” of their nominating process, to locate a better qualiifed VP pick, and have that pick ready to go moments after Sarah Palin seeks to withdraw her selection by McCain citing “distraction” by the media in her family life..

Because that’s what it boils down to, doesn’t it? Fear stoked by those who know how to do it best. Now, there is one baby out-of-wedlock, usually slammed by those of the Right and maybe two….

    Palin needs to look and absorb the over-population of the world……HELLLOOOO!?!?!?…..the planet cannot support an ever growing population of humans….an anti-abortion or no conrtaceptive devices allowed stance is unacceptable.
    Also, the fact that her youngest child (her 5th) was going to be born with Down’s syndrome and suffer with it the rest of their life and she went ahead with giving birth.

    This woman is not qualified, bottom line. But, she’s sure shown how the Republicans can stir up the fundamentalists, who were probably indignant at Jamie-Lynn Spears’ pregnancy, but think it’s okay when one of their own is preggers at 17.

    jen Says:

    all of you who doubt, are fools…. palin’s pregnancy tale is the most ridiculous tale ever told. it would be physically impossible and TIME-IMPOSSIBLE for her official story to be true.

    women claims water breaks at 4am (dallas, tx time), she then instead of going to a hospital, decides to give a speech in front of gop governors about energy…then still instead of going to the hospital, she boards a plane from dallas, tx to seattle, wa — now mind you, SHE IS SUPPOSEDLY 8 months pregnant with her water leaking and YET, not 1 stewardess thought she looked pregnant, she exhibited no behavior that led them to believe she was pregnant, and she never told the airline that she was 8 months pregnant….

    so we arrive in seattle, where she must change planes, again, no stewardesses know she is pregnant and she tells NO ONE….

    she lands in anchorage, ak some 9-12 hours after leaving dallas, remember all the while, with her water leaking (lets remember, this is a 45 yo woman who is on her 5th child that has DOWNS SYNDROME (and yes, they knew before he was born) and her water breaks 1 month early….

    then, does she go to a hospital in anchorage??? noooooooooooo… she then drives 45 miles — now it is 10pm ANCHORAGE TIME (remember her water started leaking at 4:30am DALLAS TIME), to go to the small town hospital where she used to be mayor to have her long-time friend and once receipent (awarded to her by Sarah Palin) Family Physcian of the Year, Dr. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson deliver her premature, special needs baby at a hospital that had NO natal icu unit.

    She finally gives birth at 6:30am 4/18/08 — now wasilla, ak time…. which is 3 hours behind dallas, tx time — which means she was in the stages of childbirth for nearly 30 hrs, most of which was travelling after her waterbroke….

    Now, even if all that is hard to swallow, here’s more….

    She claims she returned to work on Monday, after giving birth on Friday morning in Wasilla, AK…. Guess where work is??? 2000 MILES AWAY IN JUNEAU, AK, where she lives in the Governor’s Mansion at 716 Calhoun Av., Juneau Alaska( the official residence of the Governor of Alaska) — which there is video tape of her in February leaving to walk to work….

    So how is it possible that this woman gave birth at 6:30am on friday to her special needs child in wasilla, ak and then returned to work 2 days later, some 2000 miles away? Did she fly on a plane from wasilla, ak back to juneau on saturday with her baby? that’s highly unlikely…. did she leave her newborn son all by himself in wasilla, ak at a small town hospital so she could return to work on monday? she’s THAT important to alaska that they couldn’t spare her 1 day?

    All this combined with the fact that only 1 picture shows a ‘pregnant’ palin — and that picture was taken 5 days before she gave birth — reasonable….however, how did that woman who looked SO pregnant in those pictures escape the attention of not 1 but 2 sets of flight attendants? her doctor, dr. cathy johnson says SHE DID NOT ASK FOR THE MEDICAL OK TO FLY… why not?

    Also, her daughter was supposedly out of school for about 5 months from december to april, with what is the world’s worst case of mono (why isn’t this girl in the medical books for surviving a 5 month case of mono) AND yet, Bristol Palin was involved in a car accident in February 2008 while trying to turn into a business in WASILLA, AK — i can’t repeat enough, Wasilla is 2000 miles away from Juneau, AK… So, sick enough to miss school for 5 months, but not sick enough to not drive around town??
    Or…. her daughter got pregnant in Aug 2007 before school started and when they couldn’t hide it anymore, they took her out of school…they discovered that the baby had downs syndrome (and while yes, woman over 35 have a higher chance for a DS baby, 80% of DS babies are born to women UNDER 35) during genetic testing and realized that this baby would need a lot of medical care…. now, why is that important? because baby Trig would not be covered under anything, UNLESS, Sarah & Todd were the parents…their daughter had no way to provide medical coverage for her son…. Now, all that may seem noble, BUT….
    This woman either defied all odds of first ever getting pregnant (there is a 1-2% chance a woman at 45 would become pregnant w/o fertility), then staying pregnant (54% chance/miscarriage) and then travelled to mutiple cities without dr’s approval, fool 2 airline staffs and then bypass all the hospitals in AK to go to a small town one and then miraculously re-appears at work 2,000 miles away from where she gave birth to return to work 2 days later….Now, all of these things are true — not 1 thing I have said is UNTRUE or a LIE…not 1 thing…. i have researched this thing all weekend and have put all the pieces together and there’s only 2 conclusions…either this woman lied and pretended to be pregnant or 2, this woman was highly irresponsible w/her newborn.

    I think Sarah Palin is indeed the mother of Trig. I also think that if she insisted on giving her speech on April 17th after her waters broke, and then insisted on going on that 8 hours flight back to Alaska, it was because she knew that doing so could easily kill the fetus, and hoped that it would – a form of passive abortion which would save her face with regard to her position about abortion. It didn’t work, and now she is saddled with a Down’s Syndrome child.

    rON IN iRVINE Says:

    You need to take this false story down. Bristol was pregnant at the time Trig was born so she cannot be the mother. This was an ugly vile story with no evidence to back it up. I am surprised you ran with it.

    DailyKos is not a reliable source. They will probably be sued by Bristol Palin for this complete disregard for the truth. Kos has already taken the story down. If you do not, you may end up being sued as well.

    Data presented in this article is false. Fact: the probability of having a baby with Downs Syndrome increases with the age of the mother. A mother in her forties is almost 200 times more likely to have a Downs Syndrome baby than a teenage mother.

    Has anyone looked at the Associated Press photo linked to in the update?. Looking at photos from around the same time and this one, they seem inconsistent. The weight she is carrying in her face as well as her permed hair just don’t match up.

    Here she is on super Tuesday: http://www.adn.com/politics/v-gallery/story/339576.html?/politics/v-enlarge/story/339576-a339575-t3.html

    And here she is at the end of Alaska’s legislative session (which end in early April by my best research) would have been after the delivery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/30076181@N02/2814199887/in/photostream/

    The hair, the weight and the glasses are all wrong. I’m just saying. I guess we won’t really know until/if her daughter actually gives birth.

    Puhlease Says:

    Where the heck did you get your information?

    from http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/genetic/down_syndrome.html

    “Normally, at the time of conception a baby inherits genetic information from its parents in the form of 46 chromosomes: 23 from the mother and 23 from the father. In most cases of Down syndrome, a child gets an extra chromosome 21 — for a total of 47 chromosomes instead of 46. It’s this extra genetic material that causes the physical features and developmental delays associated with DS.

    Although no one knows for sure why DS occurs and there’s no way to prevent the chromosomal error that causes it, scientists do know that women age 35 and older have a significantly higher risk of having a child with the condition. At age 30, for example, a woman has about a 1 in 900 chance of conceiving a child with DS. Those odds increase to about 1 in 350 by age 35. By 40 the risk rises to about 1 in 100.”

    And if her daughter is already 5 months pregnant, are you saying she went ahead and got knocked up right afterward? Because going into labor is SO much fun. Puhlease.

    Amy Says:

    This has got to be the dumbest rumor I have ever heard.

    I have a sister with Down’s Syndrome.

    “Trig was born one month premature. Sarah returned to work after three days. (Trig was diagnosed with Down syndrome while still in the womb.)’

    First of all, they don’t do tests on anyone under the age of oh about 35 to see if the baby has down’s syndrome when the mom is pregnant, I had a triple test done, but only because I had a higher risk and I was 24. I had to request that test. They wouldn’t have given it to me otherwise. The triple test only tells you that you are at a higher risk. An Amnio is the test they do to diagnose it and there is no way they would have done that on a 17 year old girl.

    Plus, the returning to work thing. Some people do return to work right away. It is not that common, but it does happen. That is no proof that Palin didn’t give birth to this baby.

    (80% of the cases of Down Syndrome are in mothers under the age of 35.)

    This is not true, as I stated above. If it was that common in women under the age of 30, they would do amnios on women that young. I think this statistic is backwards. I have know many mothers of children with Down’s and most of the are over the age of 30. Only a handfull were under the age of 30.

    I think that people are falsly attacking this women. It is amazing some of the mean **** people are writing on websites like these. Everyone has Skeletons in their closets and I am sorry having a pregnant teenager is not a skeleton, compared to the rest of these slimey politians across the country.

    I have a friend who has totally bought into this, and this is the reason why she doesn’t like Palin. Maybe everyone should look past someone’s personal life and see where they really stand on the issues that are affecting us everyday, (like um, maybe how much it will cost to gas up my car today).

    Maybe we should start digging even more deep into Obama’s past and see what we find there….Wait a minute, wasn’t his mom a single pregnant 17 year old when he was born?

    These days, that should be the least that people should be considering as a deciding factor.

    Piper fixing Trig’s hair is adorable. Even a child her age knows how to love, it’s obvious with her gesture. Everytime Bristol was holding him she kissed him often. Not for the camera but because she loves him.They are not ashamed of Trig or Bristol and you(Jared,democrat and media) can’t stand it. They had to be taught how to love by someone, was it you Jared,”not”?! You dems are jealous. Even Obama agrees that you don’t attack anyone’s children. He’s smart enough to know that his family is normal and even though you try your hardest to instill right and wrong in your kids, they have minds of their own and will do what they think is right for them. Hello, does’nt take a genius to know that.Sarah is a loving mother before anything else, it’s obvious.Can’t be too bad still raising her family with the same man.They have a legitimate loving and strong family unit and all the lies and bull#@%$ can’t change that.

What a magnificient display of trailer trash, shades of win Peaks!
    Surely no one in their right mind would vote for Gramps and his latest coming attraction. Poor ole thing looked like he was in need of a diaper change by the time she finished her speech.

    If this is true, what does this say about John McCain? Is he going through midlife crisis?

    He is desperate!

    Is this the only way he can win the Presidential Election without putting “country first” in allowing people to ask. If it is on the Internet and she refuses to answer, what does that say about her?

    If this is true and she is lying, is this hat America wants – a liar and manipulator in office?

    Is she that committed to her baby who does have Down syndrome or is she more interested in becoming President of the United States?

    John McCain doesn’t know this woman. An interviewer asked her a question about being President; she did not correct him or say, “As Vice President, I will be doing this.” She already knows and John McCain also knows that God only grants us 70 years.

    If this is his way of getting back at the RNC and making a name for himself before he lives this world as “the man who help position the first Republican President, his name will go down in the records.

    But if this woman is everything this newspaper ad and others are saying, how could he or the RNC be so dumb not to want people to question everything about this woman?

    If it is true that her daughter is the mother of this baby and currently having another baby, what is going on? Where are the parents? What message are we sending to other young adults and to the world?

    America is in trouble and you want to know something, all the talk about “country first” went down the toilet when he and the RNC put a shield around this lady.

    If “country is first” why are we compromising? We have compromised on everything in this country that it does not even make sense anymore.

    We have 20 million illegal immigrants in this country and no one even care that they are here now. It is acceptable. Our men and women they return from war and no one even cares if they are sane or have medical problems. Don’t tell, we won’t ask. They wave the flag and talk about the right to life, but how about marriage?

    It is truly a sin and a shame that out of all the women in the Republican Party this is the one he chose to tease the men and to give those 18 million undecided Democrat voters an opportunity to vote for a woman who is not qualified and not even at the level of any of the Republican women in Congress, Senate or even close to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Prayerfully, she will do what the British are betting on resign. If she doesn’t resign you can rest assure this article and other stories are going to come out about her. John McCain and the RNC will not be able to stop it.

    If they could take Barack Obama through the ringer for 19 months and continue to do so, you mean to tell me she can’t take two months of being investigated without calling it “sexist.”

    The devil is a liar.

    If she wants the job she is no better than Hillary Rodham Clinton or any other woman that is trying to break the glass ceiling.

    If it is too much for her she needs to step down now. She’s had her 15 minutes of fame, along with her daughter, the boyfriend and her family.

    This is the very reason why those foreign nations do not want us in their country.

    America deserves better.

    Dean Says:

    There are a couple of problems with your hate filled prattle.

    1. Down syndrome is NOT a disease. It is a genetic disorder that effects the 21st Chromosome. It is not a disease.

    2. Most down syndrome babies are born to women over 35. Births to women under 20 are quite rare. A 16 year-old has a 1 in 1654 chance of having a downs syndrome baby. A 44 year-old has a 1 in 52 chance.

    3. If Bristol Palin is currently pregnant she would have had to concieved on or just after that 18th of April. This is impossible. It has been 142 days since the birth of Trig. This then makes her current preganacy impossible at the gestation stated. If she is actually Trig’s mother, there is no way she is pregnant at 20 weeks, 5 months or probably at all. It can take 1-3 months after the birth of a child to be able to concieve. There are many variables that are uncertain. We will see.

    I realize that the left wackos will develop some dreamtime fantasy to explain the dates and the times, but just remember Obama-Bots, Humpty-Dumpty was pushed to silence him as a vast right-wing plot against Barack Obama.

    If you choose to believe the lies of the hate filled left, you are a party to this. Research a little, and you realize the rumours are not fact they are fantasies that are created for one purpose.

    While Obama/Biden locked my vote down months ago, I have still been following the news, both drama driven and politically driven, regarding Sarah Palin.

    Have Palin’s husband take a paternity test.

    The issue is not whether she covered up for Bristol’s first alleged illegitimate pregnancy. The issue is that Bristol Palin, age 17, is currently pregnant right now. Whether this is her being pregnant again, or pregnant for the first time, the problem lies in the fact that Sarah Palin is all for abstinence education ONLY. If she’s trying to diminish sex education in our school systems, she has obviously never had sex education in her own household.

    Palin’s kids were taught that sex before marriage, birth control/condoms/emergency contraception/the power of choice when faced with pregnancy were all sinful. If children don’t learn about these things from their parents, it doesn’t mean they won’t learn at all. It just means they will learn elsewhere. Bristol Palin knows what sex is, regardless of what she was or was not taught. And the baby bump proves it.

    Knowledge is power. I was taught at a young age, along with my brothers and sister, about sex, the consequences of sex and teenage pregnancy, the emotionally and financially draining process of an abortion, and the correct use of contraception. My health class in high school had us “parent” baby dolls for three full days. These dolls cried at 4am, burped on the school bus home, needed bottles during gym class, etc.

    I was taught all of that by my parents. And what I chose is abstinence!!

Yes, taking on a disabled child is very admirable, but that isn’t the point. The lie will come out. And let’s see actually how long the new pregnancy of the daughter’s is.

    maskit Says:

    While I don’t like Sarah Palin, I feel I have to call you on your information. It is more likely that Trig is her baby. The truth is that women over 35 are more likely to have babies with Down Syndrome. I was taught this in nursing school. It is something that is a definite risk factor with the older mother, thus far more likely that Sarah is the mother of Trig, and I send her and her family strength because raising a down syndrome child is like a beautiful melody with harsh chords.

    One of the sweetest children I ever knew was a down syndrome child who decided that I was her grandmother, though I am hardly old enough to be so. She passed, regrettably for all who knew her, before her 30th birthday. It was my pleasure to know her, and my soul has an empty space where her presence made a home. I hope that this family (though I still cannot, will not vote for Ms. Palin because of her standing on almost every single issue in the world) enjoys their “Angel Unaware” as Dale Evans Rogers, in her book, said of her down syndrome child). Now that was a brave woman. Her child was born during a time when special needs children were warehoused and she would not do it, seeing her child as a blessing.

No one I know. Palin has shown herself to be the best promoter of Sarah Palin, and
    little else in the year since McCain dug her out of an igloo. Funny how her book has now dropped to 3rd on Amazon and 4th on BN. Guess the big conservative groups have made their buys.
