Trig vs. Kenya

Apr 22, 2011 in Sarah Palin, Stupidity

I don’t want to play any games here. Everything I’ve heard tells me that Trig is Sarah Palin’s son. I think, given the way people are, no matter how terrified many Alaskans are of the Rage of Palin, somebody would have ruined the secret by now, and that there are enough testimonials out there to verify the most likely truth, that Trig is Sarah Palin’s son. I wouldn’t be bowled over in surprise if it actually turned out he wasn’t, but I’m not holding my breath.

But, yeah, she has never had a right to complain given the way she gleefully smeared Obama over the Ayers business. And now that she’s dabbled in birtherism and asked for a birth certificate (and apparently once demanded a marriage certificate from her Wasilla mayoral opponent), she’s gone and pointed three fingers back at herself. If she’s okay with asking for birth certificates, especially after one has already been produced, who is she to complain that people want Trig’s birth certificate?

I would drop the issue right now, and did a long time ago, and she pretty much had a win in her pocket. And the pot at the end of the rainbow isn’t a golden scoop, it’s just a story of a prideful mom taking a hit for her daughter. All Palin had to do was walk the high road. But she couldn’t stay out of the gutter, so she shouldn’t complain about the nest she built for herself with nasty muddy gutter twigs (no lisp intended).
