Wonkette's post, "Bristol Palin So Glad She Didn’t Abort Her Mom’s Baby."
Something about that makes me think that the folks at Wonkette are among those of us who know the truth about Sarah Palin's fifth pregnancy.
As for the actual article, Wonkette at first relays the story told by Palin about her flirtation with abortion and when she claims to have first learned that Trig had that pesky extra chromosome don'tcha know.
It made her a “pro-life” hero. And then her fail-spawn Bristol also “chose” not to do the thing they believe no one should choose, and she was a “pro-life” hero too! And they were all so happy they’d both chosen not to do abortions to their babies, hooray!
Then Wonkette takes note of the fact that Bristol is having a fairly difficult time keeping the story straight about just when SHE learned that Trig was going to be the intelligent one in the family.
One version from a 2013 post on her ghostwritten blog says this:
When I found out Mom was pregnant with a baby who would have Down syndrome, I confess. I was scared. I didn’t know what it would mean for his life or for ours.
But then in a more recent blog post, she said this:
We (the kids in my family) didn’t know Trig was Down Syndrome until after he was a few hours old. Looking back now, I’m glad we didn’t know. We would’ve built up preconceived ideas about what our brother would be like and worried too much about it. Trig is one of our biggest blessing (along with Tripp of course) and really is the light of our lives!
That version of course more closely jives with the Willow diagnosed him at first sight story that all of us have heard in the past.
I actually wrote about that 2013 post myself when it first showed up, so we have already covered the fact that the Palins cannot keep their stories straight. (Kind of like when Palin herself forgot that Trig was supposed to have been born in the Valley and not in Anchorage.)
You see that's the problem with lies.
It is just so hard to keep them all straight in your head.
ESPECIALLY when you tell as many as the Palin clan is famous for telling.
(BTW do yourself a favor and meander through some of those comments over on Wonkette. Those folks are having a field day!)
