Without bringing little Trig into this debate – as he is worthy of his own;  let’s take a peek at what Gov. Sarah Palin has done to her family and in particular her eldest daughter Bristol in the last week by her bad decisions that include, lying, covering up and bad judgement.  Factor in the fact that the Far Right Christian show runners are lapping it up like lemonade at a church picnic and you have a troublesome situation that focuses not on family and politics but Sarah’s ability to make thought-out, appropriate decisions. 
 
Now, I suspect Sarah Palin was indeed embarrassed, ashamed and probably very upset when she first learned her daughter was knocked up at 17.  Long before McCain came a-calling. But she also knew what she had was a small local dilemma that wouldn’t make too much of deal in Alaska – a couple of lines of omigods  in the news and then Bristol and John could get hitched and sink back into Wasilla in relative anonymity.  Trig’s birth in April hardly merited a mention even in the Alaskan news.  Sarah didn’t really have to concoct too many lies and smokescreens – things happen, not enough church, not much to do for teenagers in Alaska…blah..blah..blah.  End of problem.  And then came John.
 
Yes, here comes the GOP presidential candidate and drops the run of a lifetime in your lap and you say, Yes indeedy and then you:
A. Ask yourself What would Jesus Do? and do it
B. Make full and verifiable disclosures
C  You bite the bullet, swallow your shame and fess’ up 
D.  Make up a big fat lie and grab a baby blanket
 
Rather than spill the whole story about the baby, the next baby, the trooper, the earmarks, the line vetoes, the wholesale firing of government employees and her desire to secede from the Union, she started spinning stories forgetting that she also needed plausible deniability.  Big, pregnant bumps are undeniable.
 
This is not a beauty pageant Miss Congeniality.  I don’t think McCain knew Bristol was pregnant. 
 
Let’s take a short peek, here at an aspect of The Religious Right. I think most religious families who flaunt their values and superiority flip out when it backfires on them.  Due to the hypocrisy involved in many fundamentalist sects of organized religions – the folks do not usually practice what they preach and what they shove down the throat of others.  We should expect daughters and sons of those families to save it for marriage and then do it like rabbits.  Unwed motherhood is a huge sin in most fundamentalist faiths (except the FLDS). Even in 2008.
 
I don’t imagine Sarah is a very warm and fuzzy mother.  Her behavior with Trig is very telling.  But it seems to me trotting your family out on a national stage and in front of the world with a pregnant teenager hiding her bump with some baby in her arms must have been excruciating for Bristol.   How could a mother do that to her child?  Asking a pregnant girl to hide herself is just plain cruel and wrong.  I don’t know what Jesus would have done – but I would have smote her on the spot.  I presume Bristol was wrapped in a burqua until someone told Sarah she’s better come clean because it wouldn’t be a secret much longer.  Most of what she has gotten in the media is what she created by being duplicitous, a liar and an opportunist with very questionable political values.  Shame on you Sarah.  I’ll bet John McCain would like to throw up.
 
Yet so many right wing women suddenly sympathize.  Sarah’s family situation should have nothing to do with being Vice President and everyone knows it.  But consider this and this is important.   When you get “Jesus” you have to turn a blind eye to anythingyou thought and disremember everything you  did before you were saved.  I know this from experience.  Born again women have no problem tearing their kid’s “bastards” out their arms and giving them away.  I have seen it happen.  First the riot act is read chapter and verse when the news of the pregnancy is found out. Then the hot baths and the triple pee on a stick tests.  Abortion comes to mind but a condition of being saved is you must be willing to save everyone and everything no matter what.  Did Bristol choose to stay knocked up.  I doubt it.  But knocked up she is and married in the cross hairs she will be – I don’t think it was in the plans however.  So Sarah Palin is not well-acquainted with being politic.  It appears she is in NO  way being a heartbeat away.  Didn’t anyone learn anything from Speak of the Devil Cheney?   Okay, Dumb As Dirt Dan Quayle? Guess not.
 
Thanks John.

The Sarah Palin Chronicles – Part 1 – Babygate September 1, 2008

Who knew it would get so good so fast. Before I go another agate here, is it just me or does Sarah Palin  look like a young Anita Bryant as a person and Peggy Hill on King of the Hill as a cartoon?  The glasses, the hair, the lipstick.  Anyone who wants to weigh in on that is invited to do so.
 
What was McCain thinking or was he?  Did they put the names in a hat and pick.  Does he just have a soft spot for beauty queens?  Beauty queens scare me.  These are some tough, shallow women capable of the venomous bite with smiles that would fool Jesus.
 
So let’s start with the Babygate.  The whole story stinks like a full Pamper.  Medically it makes no sense and bears more scrutiny.  I have done some checking and have this to start:“If you believe that your water has broken, you should contact your health care provider.  If your water breaks and you do not go into labor, there is an increased risk for germs and for infection in your pregnancy.  The more time that occurs between the time that your water breaks and the time that you deliver increases the risk to your baby of infection.  If your water breaks and you don’t start labor but you are after your 37th week of pregnancy, your health care provider may wish to induce labor so as to reduce the risk of infection.”

This is pretty much standard advice and it is a caution I have received in both my pregnancies. It seems that a pro-life woman carrying a baby with Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) would take extra special precaution with her condition. Many airlines require medical certification for late term mothers to be – interestingly enough Alaska Airlines is not one of those carriers.  But still – the stuff drips and is icky and airplane births are dodgy at best; with a baby who has genetic issues it must be a nightmare. At the very least, she put her life and her son’s in jeopardy by doing what she did. If it actually happened the way she said, it showed very bad judgement and a single-mindedness that is troubling.  Oh and the lying.  That too.

Now it is part of her instant legend that she is a go-getter and multi-tasker who bounced back to work 3 days after the baby was born.  I could hardly walk three days after either baby.  Leaky breasts, sore genital area, hormone and mood swings not to mention most mother’s desire to be with their newborn as much as possible – especially one with health problems. This is pretty much the norm.  Bonding?  Remember that?  Who took care of Trig.  (Why does Trig’s name remind me of Michael Jackson and his son Blanket and Roy Rogers?).  Did they have a nanny?  Did she take him to work?  Did she telecommute?   Simple questions and easily answered if her story is not made of whole cloth (I never actually did figure out what that means but…).  I agree with the Daily Kos (http://dailykos.com) and I love the fact that he called her out on it.  I too call her out on it.  I think Trig is a apple from her daughter’s tree, not hers.  And who is the baby daddy – any of the two  babies in question.

Poor Bristol.  Who appears to be not as sharp as a pistol.     First she has Mononucleosis (aka Pfeiffer’s Disease)   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infectious_mononucleosis. I can sympathize.  I had it at 13 and relapsed again at 17.   I would say 6 weeks is the average duration – it was for me in both cases only the second time I milked it good and stayed out of school for about 10 weeks.  The first time I was as sick as a dog.  So Bristol Palin- who should be on bed rest is out in the car having accidents?  Well, assuming she had the energy and the strength for it – that is plausible but hasn’t been explained away by her parents so it is probably a lie.

Could this baby be Bristol’s son?  Why not.  The Religious Right does not like unwed motherhood at all.  It catches them between a rock and a hard place.  Cover it up or go to the clinic.  I wonder what Bristol really wanted?  Sarah’s abstinence position didn’t even work at home.  Explain that away?  It is inexplicable because even if she isn’t Trig’s mother – she still did the nasty and got knocked up.  We think.

Sarah’s svelte beauty queen figure during pregnancy.?  Didn’t happen.  If she was pregnant when she announced it to her constituents I am Donald Duck. 

So now we have an odd time frame.  Keep up with me.  Trig is born on April 18, 2008.  I suspect Sarah went back to Alaska on short notice (via the Cape of Good Hope route) because Bristol went into labor. So ostensibly if Bristol is pregnant again (fool me once..) then she got pregnant in April (ouch – that had to hurt).  Or she and her mother were pregnant at some small point at the same time? Or she saw how great her mother looked and felt in her pregnancy she decided she would do it herself.

So now what happens?  Trig (who could be slightly small for his age) may be palmed off as Bristol’s baby in December. That’s a stretch. Or. Bristol will suffer the sadness of a miscarriage and be locked in a tower with her hair hanging down or both. John McCain and Sarah Palin meanwhile will flip out from the sex, lies and videotape.

This is like watching a train wreck.  Schadenfreude at it finest.  I must to educate myself about Troopergate now.  But I am sure the Trig story is going to keep spinning and keep unraveling.  

 It is all quite voola.

Stay tuned, please
