The always upstanding Daily Kos is reporting that Sarah Palin is not, in fact, the real mother of the infant, Trig Palin. Rather, the real mother is Palin’s 16 year old daughter, Bristol. Kos contributor ArcXIX, in a mawkishly indignant and poorly written exposé, entreats: “Sarah needs to answer for her lies, promptly.” Right. Because apparently the lefty bloggers have just stepped out of a time machine and their Victorian morals can’t countenance the idea of an unwed teen having a baby and a family covering for her.
Daily Kos publishes a series of photos showing Gov. Palin around the time she announced her pregnancy. She clearly isn’t pregnant, says ArcXIX who is apparently also a forensic obstetrician. Personally, I dunno. Some women show, some don’t.
It’s one thing to scrutinize the shape of a 44 year old woman – quite another to give a pixel by pixel examination of that woman’s 16 year old daughter. ArcXIX cites the picture below as proof-positive that Bristol Palin, Sarah’s daughter, was pregnant. This is his analysis: “Bristol is pregnant in these pictures. She is not carrying belly fat, which grows outwardly wide, and does not become dome-shaped. That’s because fat is generally evenly distributed around the abdomen and a fetus is not. Bristol’s chest is sticking out, a normal body reaction when sucking in stomach muscles.”
Ah. I see. Thank you, Daily Kos, for that creepy analysis of a teenage girl’s anatomy. I’m sure she, for one, deeply appreciates your implication that she is so fat she must be pregnant. With one careless post you managed to sentence poor Bristol, a normal-looking teenager, from what I can tell, to a future eating disorder and a decade of psychotherapy.
For those unfamiliar with ArcXIX, don’t feel bad. His last post on Daily Kos was about gay cowboy wizards, and that was all the way back in December, 2005. In other words, ArcXIX smells like a shill identity. In just 48 hours, ArcXIX turned up countless old photos of the Palin family and even Bristol’s school records. In other words, this is not the work of an occasional blogger, but that of a serious opposition research team meant to make sure Gov. Palin’s political life is nasty, brutish, and short.
Way to class up the presidential race, Kos.
