Gov. Sarah Palin will travel to Long Island this weekend to speak to and be honored by a group that advocates for people with developmental disabilities. Newsday reported that Palin will appear Sunday at the $125-a-plate dinner of Independent Group Home Living.
Palin's 1-year-old son, Trig, was born with Down syndrome. Palin declared herself an advocate for developmentally disabled children during her September speech to the Republican National Convention.
"We wanted to honor her as a mother who has a special-needs child, to try and bring as much exposure as we could for families who do have these special-needs children," said Frank Lombardi of the IGHL Foundation.
During the McCain campaign one of the most iconic images was of Sarah Palin striding across stages all over the country with little Trig Palin slung over one arm while she clutched a microphone in her other hand.
The lack of caution and parental responsibility that allowed her to subject this, not yet one year old, special needs child to such a harsh and unsettling environment is an issue all unto itself. But the possibility of this child not being her son, is an even bigger and more scandalous issue.
Even people who may like Sarah Palin have to admit that she dragged her family into the spotlight with her. From Todd, Bristol, Willow, and Piper, to Trig and the petrified fish out of water Levi Johnston.
Sarah spirited this group of unwashed media neophytes away from the safety of Wasilla and placed them directly in front of a ravenous 24 hour news cycle. And then she asked the media to please not bother her family. WTF?
Do you know how she could have kept them from being bothered? By not accepting the nomination to run for Vice President of the Untied States, that is how! But once she was on the ticket she certainly could not leave any loose ends behind so she had the whole damn family, "deer caught in headlights" boyfriend and all, flown to someplace where she could keep an eye on them.
And every time the media got to close, or the questions became too hard, Sarah grabbed up baby Trig like a pudgy little shield and used him to deflect criticism away from her and her family.
"How can you possibly question her mothering? Look at baby Trig!"
"Of course she is a good person! Look at little Trig!"
"Certainly she is his mother! Look how she holds him while walking around on high heels and designer clothes! Would anybody but his mother do that?"
Wherever Trig came from he has proved to be a very valuable asset to Sarah Palin indeed.
But just where did Trig Palin come from? As of today, as of this minute, and after over a month of searching I cannot tell you. I simply do not know for certain.
I do know however where he did not come from. He did not issue forth from Sarah Palin. He may have been conceived inside her house (The jury is still out on that one), but he was not conceived inside her uterus. On that one fact I have absolutely no doubt.
So today, months after the 2008 Presidential election, Sarah Palin is STILL using little Trig Palin to gain attention, and sympathy, and support. Now if that were her child, I would have absolutely NO problem with it. But it is not. At least not biologically. So she is in fact perpetrating a fraud on the people of Alaska, and the people of the United States of America.
And for that reason the truth must be discovered and the facts brought out to be scrutinized by the victims of her deception. And that is why this issue is still so vitally important. And why despite numerous setbacks I am not giving up on finding the truth.
