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.

    The liberal press refused to investigate the reports of John Edward’s illegitimate child for MONTHS until Edwards himself confirmed it in the wake of overwhelming evidence in the National Enquirer.

    But the same liberal press doesn’t find anything wrong with making insinuations about Sarah Palin’s private life because she’s a Republican.

    Talk about a double standard. Right, Jared??

    Obama’s resume is thinner than Palin. Palin has more experience in governance. Obama does not have any.

    I think that even public persons have the right to lie (sometimes) about their private life if it doesn’t affect others…they’re trying to protect their privacy.

    Hello? Edward isn’t running for President. Palin is. (VP)

  • Andrea

    It is all speculation by a left wing blog. Democrats are scared of what Palin running as VP will do to their chances of winning the presidency so of course they are going to start some ridiculous rumor

    I’m not going to judge her. Just like I’m not going to call people names for supporting who they want to support for president. “RESPECT PEOPLE’S VOTE” just like you want ppl to respect yours.

    Also Jared pay’s the cost to be the BOSS up in here. He can post whatever the **** he wants to. If you and your “party” don’t like it … F-off!

  • G550

    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 shyt like that.) Either way, not good.

    # 19 Besane @ 08/31/2008 at 11:45 am Good going, Jared, you should keep exposing these people in your blog. This is a celebrity blog, not an entertainment only, right? Get over it Republicans, and deal.

    Cheers Besane..

  • I don’t see what’s so bad about that? It’s not like she covered up some national scandal, she was protecting her pregnant 16-year-old daughter, which is what a mother’s supposed to do.

    I’m assuming you’re pro-Obama, Jared?

  • AC

    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.”

    Besane, Edwards was campaigning for the Presidency….

    Jared, you are a moron.

    McCain/Palin 08! So excited to see all of the other supporters of McCain/Palin here!!

  • Equity Demanded

    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. Our country is in dire need of capible leadership….so we ALL need to delve into what we read and search for the true person behind it

  • ck

    My God,,..you are using something like the Daily Kos as your source?
    What happened..the Weekly World News site is offline?

  • http://www.myspace.com/carolinemurphy Cutie

    Obama is an ideologue…promising some vague notion of change. Impressive public speaking abilities ALONE shouldn’t qualify you to be President

    MCCAIN/PALIN 08!!!

  • Lauren

    Very Desperate Housewives.

  • Meg

    Wow, i mean i see why she would want to cover this up, she took a very risky step trying to protect her daughter , i respect her decision to keep the child, also, but she must have understood how this would impact her political career.

    This is a plot straight out of Desperate Housewives, i didn’t know people actually did this in real life. LOL

  • HALLE

    The source is the Daily Kos, so I don’t put ANY faith in its veracity. This is the same blogger that refused to break the Edwards scandal because it would make Obama look bad, then banned the blogger that DID break the story.

    “Nuff said.

    BIG FAT AMEN

    BASH ONE, BASH BOTH. DON’T APPLY ONE RULE TO ONE CANDIDATE AND A DIFFERENT RULE TO ANOTHER.

  • jen

    you republicans are all so insane ! This is not a pro-life/pro-abortion issue. This is about the fact that she LIED and COVERED UP her daughter’s pregnancy instead of being honest and forthright. This shows bad judgement and bad character on her part. You conservatives can spin it however you want , Mccain’s choice was a lousy one!

  • Something is amiss

    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 vagina 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?

  • sarah

    I actually applaud her for protecting her daughter, how dare you embaress this poor teenage mother, shame on you!

  • http://cutiepie@yahoo.com cutie pie

    She needs to stop lying,, oh what a web we weave and this is who they pick for VP, what a crock of lies you people give out, so her daughter is a unwed babys mama welcome to the real world , it happens in all races and some abort thats why you dont see the baby. If it was Obama or a black person you folks would be all over it talking about oh those blacks this and that , ok well jump on this mess and that mess of a mess with that Casey lying Anthony chick, that woman is pathetic, why dont they just let all the criminals out to tell where their victims are … bunch of covering up idiots, as long as they treat her like shes on vacation,, interrogate her like they do all others, oh i forgot she was going with a cop so be nice to her!! damn shame!

  • KrissyKitty

    WOW! Those are some accusations. If it is true so what people have been raising their grandchildren as their own for years.
    But this is politics. I hate it when it gets so personal.

  • G550

    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.

    People need to wake up.

    Someone joked that she was vetted by eHarmony. eHarmony would have spent more time, and the stakes are lower.

  • Paulie

    Look I’m voting for Obama/Biden but linking to DailyKos is a major turn-off for me, a Hillary supporter. Kos and the gang smeared Hillary and it looks like their new target is Palin. That site and many of its posters are sexist, and they don’t even know it. And you’re headline is misleading. You’re stating that Palin didn’t give birth to the baby as if it’s a fact and she has confirmed it. It’s a rumor, period.

  • Sarah

    I’m VERY confused!

  • A2B

    I am reading comments from others who should know better but have accepted this idiotic story full of inconsistencies and impossible odds as if it is gospel truth, just because they would like it to be true to further their own political hopes. Disgusting, and demented. Could you grow a brain, people?

  • Seth

    If this is true, she is a calculating liar. McCain should drop her and get a newer more honset one. Hope this will be proven right or wrong soon so we could move on. Really do not want a woman who could not accept reality of a teenage pregnancy.

    on the other hand it is had to beleive she is so stupid as to cover up something like this. she comes out as a cunning politician looking for bigger positions otherwise.

  • African Girl

    Wait. . . what? Is they Synopsis of a VC Andrews book?

    Jared You got some ‘xplaining to do.

  • ace tomato

    This is so dumb. If Bristol was pregnant and they were covering it up, she wouldn’t be out wearing a tight shirt for photographs..

    THINK people. THINK.

    Bristol would be the one wearing loose tops.

    People are so gullible.

  • Craig

    The problem here is not so much what Palin did, but McCain’s judgment in choosing her. He obviously didn’t vet her at all, or if he did, she lied to him. Not good either way.

  • victoria

    AGREE ALEX NUMBER # 46…….. My daughter who works in a Dr.’s office, says they laughed themselves silly over this after church this morning. ( those who already read it ). In all the years she has worked there as an R.N., not any of them have encountered a MONO. case that has lasted THAT long, to keep a child out of school that many months… UNLESS, she had OTHER ongoing problems. ( obviously )……. Who cares if the daughter had a baby, for Lord’s sake ? It is 2008, the last time I woke up. If Palin is THAT far behind the times and has to hide things because she cannot deal with them, or does not want to think about what OTHERS think about HER or her family, then I will have to really think about BOTH sides all over again. But, I guess time will tell on THIS issue. The truth WILL come out, it ususally does. Look at EDWARDS.!!!!! YAWN< Here we go again !!!!

  • maryanna.

    so what!? its no one’s buisness! atleast she is more experienced then that attention-whore barack osama.

    and as far as “puff daddy” is concerned, he just needs to shut his trashy mouth and stick to lip-synching and creating stupid bands…

  • WTH????

    If your water breaks in Texas.. you go straight to a hospital in Texas… especially a month premature.. especially over 40.. COMPLICATIONS!!! Any idiot would know that..esp someone who had been pregnant before.

    It requires swift action. If she is incapable of realizing that!! 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.. Oh congratulating someone in charge of relief efforts for a job well done while people die in New Orleans.. that was pretty stupid too.

    Great choice again Republicans!!

  • ace tomato

    This goofy rumor is DOA.

    Look at other pictures of the family from the same time. They are out on the web, easy to find with Google.

    Sarah wears looser fitting clothes, and Bristol wears form fitting tops and dresses. She has a little chub on the middle, but nothing beyond normal teen years baby fat. No baby included.

    There is nothing in any of the photographs that even remotely suggests Bristol Palin is trying to conceal a pregnancy. Instead, she is showing her figure and looks NORMAL.

  • http://cutiepie@yahoo.com cutie pie

    maybe she should have schooled her daughter more on condoms instead of abortions, stop the sperm before it develops into a fetus and i wouldnt vote for mc cain or her for all the tea in China, if she lied about her fast daughter what else will she lie about? A child can see thru those lies.. believe it and what damn grand mother says the kid is hers, not where i come from they dont lie and say that, the grandmother may help raise the kid but lying and saying its yours to protect your fast daughter is pathetic.

  • tellin it like it is

    Well, everyone saying this is an entertainment blog, it is all about CELEBRITIES and I think that it is DEFINITELY arguable that the presidential and VP candidates have become quite the celebrities. 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.

    Wake up!!!!

  • Tina

    If it’s not on People.com (which it isn’t), then it’s false. The internet is full of rumours.

    Don’t you think people would’ve noticed if she wasn’t carrying a bump?

  • fran

    I love the republicans saying us democrats are scared of this news. Are you f**king kidding me! This is awesome, this has nothing to do with abortion this is about her being a liar and deceiving woman. And by the way, why was she so ashamed of her own daughter that she she covered for her.

  • Marsha

    Wake up people this is politics… Its not a tea party. Its going to get uglier and nastier before Nov.

    And if this is true. Do you really believe all this was for her 16 year old little girl??? Or was some of it to protect her “Repub values” ?! Having a 16 year old knocked up daughter is a no no with the Repubs.

  • jaye

    Good Grief ! Why are people up in arms about this. So Jared posted this, it goes with political territory. No was was complaining this much that it’s a celebrity blog when he printed the other threads that were political.

    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 know no one is perfect, but in politics they act like people should be.

    For those that see nothing wrong with it. You honestly see nothing bad about her lying. She covered it up. She’s under investigation by her own state and now this. This woman and her family are a wreck. I don’t know about others but my parents taught me to live with my mistakes. 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. Feminism is what Hillary did.

  • the real tita

    If this is true, then she is more of a better mother than most. If she’d let her daughter have an abortion, then it would have been not so cool. Shows you what a good mother she is. She is willing to sacrifice as any good parent should.

    I like her even more now!
