Is Trig Bristol's Son, Not Sarah's?

Who? Well, apparently, Sarah Palin has five children, including a 17 year old daughter, Bristol and a several month old son with Downs Syndrome, Trig.

Now, so far these are only rumors. I don't know if there is any truth behind them. They're probably not. It IS just a little too farfetched. But a few progressive sites,, 23/6 - News (from Huffington Post), and Daily Kos ARE reporting this. We'll have to wait and see what comes out.

If true, as this sites state, it is sad Bristol cannot embrace this child as her own son for the shame it would bring her family...

Further, if true, there are criminal liabilities here. First among them: falsifying medical records. That's a big no-no.

Well, good for the Democrats, bad for the Republicans. This is something from which McNaive will never be able to recover, if it proves true, and even if not, the stigma will be there, just as the stigma persists about Obama being a Muslim.

Secret's out: Palin pregnant


"That the pregnancy is so advanced astonished all who heard the news. The governor, a runner who's always been trim, simply doesn't look pregnant."

"Really? No!" said Bethel state Rep. Mary Nelson, who is close to giving birth herself.

"It's wonderful. She's very well-disguised," said Senate President Lyda Green, a mother of three who has sometimes sparred with Palin politically. "When I was five months pregnant, there was absolutely no question that I was with child."

"Palin said she's not aiming to take any time off from her job as governor, assuming all goes well with the pregnancy. She said when she had Piper -- Palin was mayor of Wasilla at the time -- the baby was born on a Monday and she returned to the office on Tuesday."

Any concern about the stigma that Bristol will face if it's not true??

Without question. The point is, though, that there SHOULDN'T BE a stigma. The stigma should be on the mother who pulled a 1950s trick to hide her daughter's pregnancy.
