I think Trig's father might also be put into question depending on how this plays out in the National Enquirer:
Palin and Secret Lover
Either way, the circumstances around her 'hidden' pregnancy are what caused the fervor over Trig. She apparently did everything she could to hide
the fact she was pregnant until the third trimester. Since the American public still knows very little about her, and she is running on a platform of
'Strong Family Values', the questions are in no way 'out of line'.
Neither is questioning her platform of Abstinence and a pregnant teenage daughter. While there is the silver lining of the daughter's engagement and
lack of 'teen mom abortion', it totally skirts the fact that while Palin was at work as Governor, her 17 year old got knocked up, and now has a much
steeper climb in life. If Palin had supported comprehensive sexual education, her daughter would have been 'allowed' the choice of birth control,
even if that 'protection' was only a condom.
I am sorry, but the lack of information in the public awareness combined with the lack of access to Palin in the media makes me completely reject her
ticket as a candidate for my vote. I was unsure for a while about her, but the secrets that keep coming out about her, and the way the secrets are
being handled sickens me. I was born and bred a Republican. I have packed away my first Christmas ornament of with a Republican elephant. Bush I
soured me, Bush II took me off the reservation. Ron Paul inspired me, and now the McCain/Palin ticket has me looking elsewhere with my votes. I
believe that my Party has completely lost their way.
Some around here think that I am in the tank for Obama. I must admit that his candidacy has inspired me in ways that the McCain campaign has come
anywhere close to achieving. The choice of Palin is not 'historic', it is trivial. Ferraro was historic. Clinton as well. Her choice was nothing
more than pandering by a party scrambling not to lose to Obama. Sure, she has invigorated 'the base', but not the real base of the Republican
Party. The base she has invigorated is the Dominionists and Born Agains that are working for armageddon. In addition to 'the base' of Christian
extremists, I imagine that Palin as VP would also invigorate 'the base' of Extremist Muslims that would kill her in the street for her own Vanity.
Fair? Not at all...
But worrying about whether or not Trig is her baby, her daughter's baby, or even her secret lover's baby is a moot point.
Especially when 'the base' translates in arabic to 'Al Qaida'.
Palin is a terrible choice as VP. If only for the fact that the United States has so many issues going on in the Middle East. While her beauty and
outspoken nature will not win us many Arab Allies, I am sure the hockey moms are eating it up.
Maybe if she were ugly, then she would be a better choice.
