In her recent rush of interviews, Sarah Palin ridiculed the media for insinuating that Trig was not her child. But, really, she was ridiculous - her flying across America and attending a conference after her waters broke was truly irresponsible, silly and in fact not credible.
The Daily Dish referred his readers yesterday to an excellent blog about Palin’s pregnancy, ‘Palin’s Deception: A Biology Lesson’. The blogger, Audrey, has written a very comprehensive essay on the facts of a pregnancy and what would normally happen under the circumstances. She doesn’t believe that Palin was ever pregnant with Trig.
The single specific piece of information that we have that has caused the most scrutiny of her birth saga is that she traveled back from Texas to Alaska on April 17th leaking amniotic fluid. Yet, she has never once, as far as I can tell, been asked pointed questions about the very real specifics of this. It would be a bit like someone calling in sick at work because he has cut his arm very badly, then never showing any physical signs – like blood, or stitches, or going to the doctor, that it ever happened, yet being defensive about having to “prove” it.
The leaking of amniotic fluid is an indisputable, unmistakable sign of the onset of labor. Flying at eight months of pregnancy is ill-advised. Flying at eight months with leaking amniotic fluid is insane, particularly for a woman who has boasted about her easy (past) births.
She concludes that:
If Palin’s story is entirely a lie, and the physical realities of membrane rupture which I have seen and dealt with countless times make me lean very strongly in that direction, then the only answer is she was never pregnant at all.
Read it, it’s a brilliant blog, and as Andrew Sullivan says, where journalists failed, blogs have succeeded.
Palin has lied about so much.

ATTENTION REPUBLICANS: RE: SARAH PALIN
Obviously there has been a HUGE mistake…..
Palin’s Dribble, Weasel Wording, Mush-Mush, Asssss-Backwards speak Cleary demonstrates who carries the Down Syndrome trait in her family, because of this we (the democrats) will allow you to send her back to Wacky-silla without prejudice and select another candidate.
For this consideration the Republicans agree to sell Alaska to Russia (with Palin) and never mention the State of Alaska or her again.
P.S. Why does Palin repeat herself in the same sentence and add extra words that don’t belong!! Reading a Quote from her makes me feel like I am in the advanced stages of dyslexia. Does Anyone else have a problem with this? Is there anyone out there from the North Slope who speaks Wacky-silla?
There is not the slightest reason to think that Trig is not Sarah’s child. This is just another example of left-wing rumour mongering. It is just like all the other baseless “facts” that these people peddle: Sarah didn’t know Africa is a continent, Sarah spent $150,000 on a wardrobe, Sarah offered to join Obama’s team etc etc. No wonder journalism is no longer regarded as a profession…
Really, Mike? Not the slightest reason? Then why doesn’t she come up with some medical records?
Listen, it’s not a republican – democrat debate. It’s facts vs. speculations, just like any good debate is.
The kid doesn’t seem likely to be hers. Why? Pick a reason, like Eric in Miami said, it’s odd that even as of election day, a few weeks ago – no health records. No pictures of her pregnant!! No proof. And, silly attempts to make herself seem extraordinarily indestructible (traveling while in labor). Come on.
Let’s all rejoice in not having to look at her square face and hear her mispronounce Nuclear.
It’ll all come out in the end. It’s just a matter of time.
I’ve already mentioned the following thought in the world’s weird web, but it bears repetition:
I can’t imagine what prompted me to think of this snippet of conversation in the brilliant 1993 movie _Dave_, between Bob Alexander (White House chief of staff, played by Frank Langella) and Alan Reed (White House communications director, played by Kevin Dunn):
BOB ALEXANDER: What about containment, Alan?
(Reed heaves a sigh and looks at his notes.)
ALAN REED: I got the nurses for fifty grand apiece and the doctors for a hundred.
It’s not the only lie. Palin claims she’s released her medical records, but she never did.
Palin’s claimed several times that the media has lied about her “record,” and she makes it clear she means her “medical records” because she then talks about the rumors that Trig is actually her daughter’s child.

Says Shira (“November 21st, 2008″)”:
“It’s not the only lie. Palin claims she’s released her medical records, but she never did.

Medical records? Birth certificate(s)? Calling the International Olympic Committee! The world knows how unimpeachable and impeccably thorough the IOC is whenever it investigates and determines such matters.
A majority of the RotW’s Palinologists are now drumming their fingers waiting for the USA’s _mainstream_ fourth estate to take the questions seriously and to do some _ordinary investigative journalism_.
If the Sarah Palin Show had been staged in the UK or Australasia or South Africa then I trust that it would have been fatally panned by theatregoers, critics and the mainstream domestic fourth estate soon after that hilarious juncture in the performance where the leading lady flatly (!) announces on Wednesday 5 March (gosh—doesn’t time fly when we’re being entertained?) that she’s seven months pregnant, which is 48 days before the flight of fanciful phantom pregancy from Texas to Alaska on Thursday 17 April.
The USA’s mainstream fourth estate has been too much of a fawning, purring, belly-up, paws-in-the-air pussycat, too _lacking in disrepect_. Monty Python should have been called in during the Sarah Palin Show’s performances in early 2008, certainly no later than the quick-studying parrot’s flight of fancy in April, to say: “This show is definitely deceased.”
Irrelevant stage-whispered aside: Quick study? We should certainly hand it to her. Any thespian (let’s wait for her to opine that some of her best friends are thespians but that they shouldn’t be permitted to marry each other) of her obvious intellect who can _avoid_ uttering “Armoured-Dinnerjacket” umpteen times deserves at least _some_ respect from the theatre critics.
Oops. Yet another posting that I’ve botched. In my piece of a few minutes ago I should have employed at least one “also”.
