Scarier and Scarier

Although I've said in the past I am mostly steering away from posting on topics that have nothing to do with the central questions of this website, here was one I could not resist.

Currently, a biography called "Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned the Political Establishment Upside Down" by Kaylene Johnson is #5 on the paperback nonfiction bestseller list at the New York Times. Originally, another author, Amanda Coyne, had the contract to write the book. According to the "Alaska Ear," a column in the Anchorage Daily News, here's why she chose not to write the book.

"She hadn't traveled. She couldn't name her favorite book. She doesn't struggle with any kind of the big issues of the day. She has not experienced anything like adversity. It took her five colleges to get a journalism degree. Her mother didn't know who Sarah's idols were. She also didn't know how she became the kind of born-again Christian she says she is. She couldn't remember Sarah having interest in public policy, or in reformist movements, or in anything, much, except for sports. Both Sarah and her family are obsessed with Trooper Wooten."


I'll repeat something I said in a previous post: This is a woman that John McCain apparently believes, that should he die, would be qualified to take on Vladimir Putin, the former head of the KGB. Regardless of how one feels about Sarah Palin, this is the best reason I can think of not to vote for John McCain.

Update: Thanks to an alert reader, we now have the link to the full interview. Here it is. Please read this, there's more info here.

Audrey,

This is an excellent site for helping us to determine the truth. I notice that you've recently reviewed Gov. Palin's schedule and noted that she was really in Wasilla in the two months prior to her 'delivery'. I presume you cite this information as the basis of questioning whether she had pre-natal visits with her doctor.

I'm sure you are aware that a high-risk pregnancy would leave a paper trail a mile long. There were be lots of pre-natal visits, lab work (at least for the amnio) and insurance claims!!

If Palin is covered by the Alaskan government health plan, I believe that these records -- the non-confidential parts -- would be subject to a freedom-of-information request. For example, one might want to determine how much Gov. Palin's pregnancy cost the Alaskan taxpayers. That's not confidential.

Of course, if she paid for it herself, that raises other questions. The truth is in the records, medical, lab and insurance. This seems the surest method to get to the unvarnished truth.

One other thing that nobody seems to be noting since everyone is focused on Bristol. There are three women in the Palin family capable of having a child. Has anyone seen Willow lately? She could clearly have a child -- and it would be why Sarah went to such great lengths to conceal the parentage of Trig.

If we assume that she faked her pregnancy -- as I do -- one has to ask why she waited so long (at 7 months?) since starting to fake it at that point would be much harder to pull off and she had to know about the pregnancy much earlier.

So I have a theory, which I don't think is so far-fetched. Willow got pregnant in August 2007. Bristol was going to cover for Willow, but got pregnant herself earlier this year, and Sarah found out about it early March 2008. So Bristol can't cover for Willow anymore (they can explain one baby but not two) so Mom has to claim credit, no matter how silly it may look.

Sarah almost gets away with it -- and it is kind of noble, if you think about it -- but doesn't think she'll be caught when she's in the national spotlight because she got away with it in Alaska. but she doesn't.

Anyway, the jig is up. If you have access to travel records, find out if you can trace if and where Willow went to school in 2007-2008. I read somewhere that the younger Palin kids also switched schools. Strange.

If it was Willow who gave birth to Trig, wouldn't she be the one who was out of school 5 months?

Medical records are private under federal HIPPA law.

Willow has been seen almost non-stop on the campaign trail with her mom and Piper, Trig and Todd. Supposedly Bristol is there, too, but for whatever reason, she doesn't appear in public. I'd think it would be more comfortable to be home in Alaska with her fiance. Traveling as often as she is with the family has got to be hard on her being what 6 mos? 7 mos? pregnant now.

My bet is that BRISTOL is the MOTHER and HER DADDY is TRIGGS DADDY. Wasn't he attending the house and NOT working all those months poor ol bristol was sick with mono? Could explain the coverup AND the downs.

It's not surprise that Willow is along on the campaign trail, particularly since the other kids are also there. But should they be in school back in Alaska, being watched by family?

Anyway, medical records are private (unless subject to a duly issued subpeona), but insurance records -- not so much. I don't care about the details of the MEDICAL findings, just that she submitted claims in the time frame she claimed for pre-natal care FOR HERSELF.

And I ask again, where was Willow in early 2008? Does anyone have any proof that she was in school? Where did she go to school?

These are not unreasonable questions to answer. We know that Bristol was out of school, so Willow's school attendance shouldn't be a mystery either.

Prove me wrong, but I don't think Bristol is Trig's mother. And I don't think Sarah is, either. So it has to be Willow, right? Who else would Sarah cover for?

I want one confirmable piece of evidence that show Willow could not be Trig's mother. Anyone?

I agree with the poster who said PIPER is the mom.
