When? Between 12:00 and 3:00
What? Oh you mean why is it called the "Screen Door" celebration? Because we are asking that our dear Sarah NOT let the screen door smack her on the ass on the way out!
The Governor will be having her very last picnic in Anchorage tomorrow so I am sure she will be looking forward to seeing ALL of her soon to be ex-constituents before she flies away on Rupert Murdoch's plane to pursue her career in destroying the GOP one interview and rally at a time.
Let's not disappoint her!
All of your favorite liberal bloggers will be there and as well as many of your fellow Alaskans, so come join the party!
Bring your signs. Bring your kids. Bring your sense of humor. And hell while you are at it why don't you bring your copy of "Trailblazer: An Intimate Biography of Sarah Palin" for the ex-Governor to sign. That is the least she could do for us isn't it?
See you there!

"Trailblazer: An Intimate Biography of Sarah Palin". Willow's mutant powers of Down Syndrome detection are revealed for the first time.
In her interview with People magazine, Sarah recounted the conversation. "He looks like he has Down syndrome," Willow said, looking at her mother. Sarah tried to reassure her daughter. "If he does, you know you will still love him, Willow. It'll be okay." Unsatisfied, Willow asked, "Why didn't you tell us?" Sarah went into an explanation about how she wanted to keep the pregnancy short their sake, and she also admitted she was busy and had not reconciled her own ambivalent feelings. She apologized to her children for the deception but wanted them to understand: "Trig is perfection, and I cannot imagine life without him." Willow was completely forgiving, telling her mother that non of it mattered; Trig, whose name is derived from two Norse meanings--"Brave victory" and "True"---was her brother, and she loved him. (Chapter 13, pg. 187)
Of all of the ridiculous lies told abut the birth of this baby, THIS might be the most blatant and easily disproved.
First we have this statement from Sarah Palin herself:
Reporter: In the family statement that was issued by… it said through early testing you knew you would have some special needs.
Reporter: Can you explain?
Palin: Right, yeah, well, He’s got that extra chromosome, he has Down’s Syndrome. And, um, ya can’t tell at this stage by looking ya know but, um, there are some characteristics there that I think will become more apparent, but just absolutely perfect in our eyes and we’re just very, very, very blessed and, um it’s, its a perfect situation for us when we first heard it was, ya know, kind of confusing and, and at first blush hearing the news it was you know, I… it was received by me for a couple of hours there after hearing the news as, uh, very, very challenging… even sad… that day but just knowing that there’s purpose in every siutaiton… there’s certainly good purpose in every child. Just knowing that, um, we should feel blessed that, uh god would choose us...
So let me get this straight. Palin herself points out that you cannot tell at this stage by looking at Trig that he has Down Syndrome, but the amazing Willow Palin was able to tell minutes after seeing her new "brother" that he had the syndrome? I mean she did not just say "there is something wrong with him", according to the People magazine article she was able to do a complete diagnosis in a matter of minutes. Quick somebody get this child a scholarship to Harvard Medical School! She is a child prodigy!
Do you need further proof that Willow could not have possibly made this diagnosis? Your wish is my command.
This is newborn baby Trig.
Here is a list of the physical features that can be identified in a baby with Down Syndrome:
Head and facial features:
Flattened back of head.
Attractive Almond-shaped eyes, with one eye lid a little droopy.
Slightly flattened bridge across nose.
Smallish ears, positioned slightly lower on the head, with a small fold at the top of the ear.
Slightly protruding tongue.
Horizontal crease in palm of hand .
Slightly shortened fingers.
The little finger curves inward .
Slightly enlarged gap between the big and second toes.
Slightly shortened toes.
Go ahead, point out the physical features that leave no doubt in your mind that this little guy has Down Syndrome.
Can you do it? Well then consider yourself far more intelligent and observant then the average person.
Now ask yourself, did you know the features of a Down Syndrome child before you read my list?
And then ask yourself, would you have noticed any of this if you had not been looking for it?
And then one final question, do you believe yourself to be more or less observant then the average fourteen year old girl?
I do not know how anybody can even begin to believe this version of events. And then when you add it to all of the other incredibly obvious inconsistencies, well how are we not conspiracy theorists?
Now if you believe that this story cannot get anymore convoluted or unbelievable I will leave you with this. I am in the process of tracking down a story that will absolutely make all of our heads explode. It has already caused me a few sleepless nights and headaches but I am still not quite ready to publish it.

Trailblazer: An Intimate Biography of Sarah Palin. Chapter Thirteen "Then was born unto them, a son."
Sarah was in touch with her doctor throughout. Her contractions steadied at one to two an hour, which her doctor, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, who was not an obstetrician but has delivered many children, including Piper, determined was "not active labor", she told the reporter. "I don't think it was unreasonable for her to continue to travel back," she said. (ADN source for this quote can be found here.) Of course this is absolutely the very definition of malpractice on Cathy Baldwin-Johnsons part. NO doctor would allow their patient to get on a plane with both contractions and leaking amniotic fluid. It simply could not happen. There are few parts of the "Sarah Palin gives birth to Trig" story as hard to swallow as this one. I have tried to contact Dr. Baldwin-Johnson a few times and have been rebuffed, but I would love to hear how she can justify this decision, and then allow herself to be quoted by a reporter. ...Sarah showed no signs of distress on the Alaska Airlines flight, an Airline spokesman said. This of course is only a portion of the quote from the Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Caroline Boren who said: "The stage of her pregnancy was not apparent by observation. She did not show any signs of distress." This is all we have ever heard from Alaska Airlines on the subject, and nobody has ever followed up to see if Palin even looked pregnant or not. Sarah said she wouldn't have risked the baby's health to have him in Alaska. But of course this statement is nonsensical because if this event actually occurred then Sarah Palin did that very thing. She placed Trig Palin, and herself, in extreme danger. Todd joked, "You can't have a fish picker from Texas." And if we are to believe that this was the motivation for such a careless decision then are we to believe that Todd Palin would rather have a dead baby, and a hemorrhaging wife, then to allow his child to be born in Texas? The loving family myth does not hold up under much scrutiny now does it?
After her commercial flight touched down in Anchorage, Todd DROVE her to regional hospital in Mat-Su Valley, where her family was waiting. That is a drive of between 45 minutes to an hour, and this was after they supposedly retrieved their bags from the airport. How many hours of labor is that? Twenty hours? Twenty five? On Friday morning--eight hours after touchdown--Sarah gave birth to a 6-pound, 2-ounce baby boy. The book leaves out this part: Baldwin-Johnson said she had to induce labor.
"Induce labor" supposedly this is Sarah Palin's fifth child! Just how long can labor last when you are having your FIFTH child?
So let's sum this whole section up, shall we?
Sarah Palin flies to Texas to give a speech while experiencing occasional contractions.
She is awakened at 4:00 in the morning with more severe contractions and leaking amniotic fluid.
She calls her doctor, who says "no worries, you should be fine", and she gives the speech. (By the way NOBODY at the Conference noticed she was having any difficulty at all, “Nobody knew a thing,” said Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii. “I only found out from my security detail on the way home that she had gone into labor and that she had gone home to Alaska.”)
Then she climbs onto ANOTHER Alaska Airlines flight back to Alaska, has a stopover in Seattle, and arrives in Alaska at 10:30 p.m. our time. By now she has been leaking amniotic fluid and having contractions for twenty two and half hours!
She then passes both Providence and Regional Hospitals in Anchorage and drives in a car for another hour to Wasilla to give birth to a baby with special needs that is arriving one month premature.
And when she arrives it is still another eight hours before Cathy Baldwin-Johnson INDUCES labor and Sarah pops out little Trig Paxson Van Palin.
By the way THIS is how Sarah Palin herself described giving birth to Trig: "It was smooth. It was relatively easy," Palin said. "In fact it was the easiest of all."
Now do me a favor. Just read over this post a few times, and ask yourself, "Does ANY of this seem reasonable? Is it even possible that it is true?"
Even if you have not been somebody who embraced the conspiracy theories about this birth, surely seeing the whole thing laid out like this must make you rethink that position. Doesn't it?
Next up: Willow notices something odd.

"Trailblazer: An Intimate Biography of Sarah Palin", Chapter Thirteen. Now things begin to get interesting.
Unless your marriage is in serious trouble, or you are having an affair, why wouldn't you tell your husband as soon as you began to suspect that you were having a child?

You know I may not be an expert on fashion or public relation, but it dawns on me that if you don't want the press to discuss your "go-go boots" that it might help to STOP WEARING THEM!
Or is that too logical?
Now let me take a moment to vent.
I am up to chapter four in this "book" and it is mind numbingly bad. There are typos, and run on sentences, and fluff, and lies, and....well I could go on and on.
But I am going to finish it, if it kills me. And if any book could shorten your lifespan it is this one.
I have received some comments from visitors asking me to just skip ahead to the "good" parts. However I can say without equivocation that there are no "good" parts. If they mean the more scandalous parts, well I am sorry but I am somebody who believes you must read a book from start to finish and that is what I am going to do.
God help me.
