No longer a conspiracy theory, "Babygate" is real! And the pictures of Sarah Palin from March 26, 2008 prove it! Update!

My good friend Audrey once referred to this picture as "The Nail in the Coffin." Because in her mind and the mind of many others, it proved without a doubt that Palin could simply NOT have been 32 weeks pregnant when the photo was taken.

But for some reason it never quite proved enough for some people.

Perhaps these pictures taken on the very same day, as Palin was leaving the museum, will finally convert the unbelievers.

(Click the thumbnails to see the high resolution images.)

This was written as a description below the photographs:

March 26, 2008, Juneau, Alaska, USA: In April 2011, Professor Bradford Scharlott at Northern Kentucky University wrote an academic paper stating that the "conspiracy theory" suggesting Palin is not Trig's mother is likely true and the American media is pathetic for not pursuing the story more aggressively. Scharlott walks through all of the evidence supporting the theory in the article, suggesting Trig is actually Palin's grandson. The article discusses photos of Palin in what is said to have been a late-stage pregnancy, the leisurely 20-hour trip home that Palin took after she supposedly went into labor in Texas, the refusal of the hospital where Trig was supposedly born to even confirm that he was born there (let alone who was the mother), strange statements from Palin's doctor and the McCain campaign, and so on. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin exits the Alaska State Museum with her husband Todd after a bill signing ceremony. Palin announced 3-weeks prior that she was 7-months pregnant with her fifth child.

And the photos were further authenticated during a discussion with the AP photographer Brian Wallace on July 31, 2011.

Here is a close up of Palin's supposedly seven month pregnant belly.

And as if that were not enough, let us not forget that only a little over two weeks later that THIS is what Sarah Palin managed to look like on a KTUU broadcast on April 13, 2008.

Here is the video of the interview to allow further scrutiny.

(I need to give a HUGE hat tip to Laura Novak who made the initial call to Polaris images and got the information that we needed to purchase these images.  Thank you Laura.)

Update: There are apparently a couple of visitors who are being purposefully obtuse and asking how these pictures prove anything, as if they were the sum total of the evidence available to prove that Sarah Palin did not give birth.  Of course they could not be more incorrect.

Let me provide just a few examples and the rest you can find using a tool I like to call "Google."

1) The Sarah Palin pregnancy. What are the odds?

And for those who are looking for an eyewitness Palin's lack of a pregnant belly.

2) Exclusive! My interview with Shailey Tripp.

And for those brave souls who REALLY want to find out how convoluted this fraud was.

3) A Tale of Two Babies by Sarah Palin.

    I think people who can't believe that Sarah faked her pregnancy as the type of people who believe that Casey Anthony couldn't have murdered her child. They won't believe it unless Sarah signs a confession and the real biological mother of Trig comes forth.

    It would really help to also post pictures of what other women look like at 7 months. When I see pregnant women, I never know what month they are in. I think I would know 9 months but I have no reference to what someone would look like at 5,6,7,8 months.
    I cannot believe that Palin's little boobs would stick out more than her stomach at 7 months, then 2 weeks later she has a baby bump.

    What was she wearing? diapers? She must have been wearing that empathy belly, did the state pay for it?

  9. she's a fraud, folks7:16 PM

    Sarah Palin is a liar and fraud and the biggest hoax in US political history.

    To this day, Palin has never proved something as simple as giving birth to her own child because she simply can not prove something that NEVER happened.

    It really is that simple.

  17. Hooooooooly shit Gryphen! SNAP! tese pics are amazing!

  18. But you know the naysayers'll say its possible to balloon up that much in a mere two weeks, right?

    I remember when we were thinking that the Gusty pics must have been faked, because, after all, we have a shred of hope that this sitting Governor wouldn't so blatantly lie about a pregnancy. Turns out, poor Ms. Gusty wasn't in on anything; she was just used by SP to get herself on film with a believable bump.

    Time on the internet, however, is not linear, and lots of time traveling can take place, and the crazy woman is BUSTED.

    Thanks Gryphen!

  19. Anonymous7:34 PM

    Gryph, I'm wildly curious to know--

    Do you think these photos have just been there, sitting dormant ALL this time, that NOBODY found them?

    I think they were quietly uploaded recently, perhaps when the photographer read Professor Scharlott's brilliant display of all the evidence.

    Also, Gryphen...I have long wished someone (but now you are the only one I trust to do it right) would do a "babygate from a to z" post. Yes it would be long...but I think some people have seen *some* evidence, but not other pieces. I really think we need one post- which lays out everything from the announcement less than 24 hours after McCain clinched the the Two Babies theory, the progression of photos- flat in these photos, giant in Gusty photos, flat in video stills just days later, etc.

    Thank you Gryphen!!

    There is a "special kind of crazy" on display here. This woman actually believed that no-one would question her.. that no-one would notice the missing baby bump.

    We know that the stork didn't deliver Trig and neither did YOU.

    Sarah is sloppy at everything she does, I don't think she thought far enough in advance to make a round belly at that time, she just threw on a oblong money belt and said here it is, I'm pregnantIn her mind this square or oblong belly wasn't going to be questionaable but crazy is as crazy does and she don't care who thinks she crazy. That family is something that should be submitted to science to make sure certain people should never mate.

      Very amusing. Winters are very long in Alaska and people have a lot of time on their hands! Still, there is a delicious irony in a conspiracy theory purporting that Sarah Palin faked a pregnancy after all that birther conspiracy nonsense thrown at Barack Obama.

  34. Anonymous8:25 PM

    I agree with the consensus that adding other 7 month pregnant women under this would make it even more effective.

    Also, I think someone in one of the other threads was right. It looks like she probably just put some kind of lazy, homemade padding under her shirt, thinking that would be enough. Probably was holding it'd tide her over til the full fake belly arrived via mail.

  35. It is possible that she has abd 8x10 dressings stacked and taped they would be the right size. Look at how the fabric of her blouse bunches right where the tape which is often made of nylon or rayon would be. Then she wore the type of clothing that would cling to these fibers. A pregnant abdomen might have some bunching on the top, but it would look very different and would appear smooth lower. The shape of her abdomen looks nothing like a pregnant abdomen. This will not convince those who saw other pictures that were just as obvious.

  36. Who, What, When, Where, Why. The 5 W's. Sarah herself would appreciate the journalistic integrity applied in solving the mystery of Trig's genesis.

    Let's see which of the five W's have been covered:

    What: Sarah Palin seems to have faked the gestation of Trig.

    When: March 6-April 18, 2008

    Where: Alaska, Texas, and any other travel destinations during the time period mentioned above.

    The two unanswered W's are WHO and WHY.

    Who: Who did Palin wish to protect by faking this pregnancy? Who was actually carrying this child in seclusion?

    Why: Why did she choose to do this? Whose reputation could this pregnancy have had such a negative effect on that a sitting Governor would fake a pregnancy for her?

  37. Anonymous8:31 PM

    I have seen a "support" band in the maternity section at Target and have wondered Palin wore something like that during her faux pregnancy. One thing that has always bothered me is that she produced a thumping sound when she thumped on her "pregnant" stomach and talked about her tight abs. It's the video with her wearing the light blue windbreaker. Pillows don't thump, but something stuffed into a tight elastic abdominal binding post surgical or pregnancy support band would.

  38. Gryphen shows Sarah what it really means to be a pit bull.

    I'm a tiny bit surprised that nobody has mentioned what I consider to be the real "gotcha" piece of the puzzle-

    Yes, we know Sarah did not go from this state to the Gusty state in eighteen days. Did not happen. But there are still her bot-pologists who will screech "my second cousin's best friend's sister's tree trimmer's wife had a baby and she was JUST like that, overnight she just POPPED!"
    Which is pure bunk of course, but it hasn't kept many from saying it.

    But what nobody can claim, and what is impossible for Sarah to explain...she went from flat in these about to drop a watermelon in the Gusty photos...AND THEN WAS FLAT AS A BOARD WITH AN EXTREMELY TRIM SILHOUETTE LESS THAN 48 HOURS LATER!

    The video captures which show her from a side view, and were taken AFTER the Gusty pics...are the smoking gun.

    The thing about the Audrey picture is that when it was examined using high contrast techniques, there is some kind of small, rectangular pad where Sarah's baby bump should be. It's strange, and I don't think that we ever decided what it was--- other than the fact that it didn't belong in the picture.

    It should also be noted that the person doing the high contrast photographic studies was chased off the internet by some serious threats, as was Audrey. If there was nothing to their blogs, they would have been ignored. They must have been presenting a compelling story in order to warrant the threats.

    The one thing that Audrey said that made the most sense was the reason why Palin could never show Trig's birth certificate. In the case of adoption, the adoptive parents' names and the child's "new" name can appear on the birth certificate, but two things cannot be changed: time and place of birth. Most of us believe that Trig was born earlier than April 18. If we need to make a good guess, based on the letter that Sarah wrote before Trig was officially presented (born), that would be a likely date. Or, it was the date they learned that the premature baby with DS was going to survive and needed a couple more weeks in the hospital, but he was going to make it after all.

  68. Anonymous10:18 PM

    An acquaintance of mine who was a Palin appointee and privy to a lot of inside information told me that one of the Palin girls was pregnant. I'm not sure of the date, but I seem to remember that it was January or February. I recall that the Legislature was in session and we were walking in front of the Capitol Building when he was telling me about it.

    I remember him saying that they were trying keep i quiet. I kept it to myself and assumed that if it was true, it would be public knowledge soon enough. Otherwise it was just rumor.

    Then Sarah announced that she was pregnant with Trig. I chalked it all up to misinformation. That it was actually Sarah that was pregnant, not one of her daughters, and that my acquaintance had gotten bad information. I was surprised though. I (and it seems everyone else) didn't think she looked the least bit pregnant.

    Then, in September it was announced that Bristol was pregnant. So I thought that perhaps my acquaintance had been right after all.

    It had been about six months between the time that I had heard of the pregnancy and when it was publicly announced. So, it was plausible that everything was on the up and up.

    But, having been a kid once, I know that you don't usually tell your parents immediately after you've screwed up. You don't usually let them in on the screw up until there's no way to deny it any longer. So my guess is that she didn't divulge this until she was showing to the extent that there was no denying it.

    So, this makes me wonder how far along she was in February when I first heard about it. I guess it's possible that she let her mom in on it as soon as she was aware of it, but that's very unlikely. And how long was it before she knew herself? After she missed her first period? Her second? Do most kids keep track of time that well? I know I didn't at that age.

    So, I would suspect that I didn't hear about it until she was into her second or maybe third month at the earliest and more likely much later unless what I heard was total rumor. Therefore, I would find it hard to believe that she was only in her fifth month when it was announced in September that she was five months pregnant. At least not with Trip.

    I guess the official story is possible but I think unlikely. Maybe it's legit, but there was plenty of motivation to stage a pregnancy that didn't exist.

    I'm still not absolutely convinced of the faked pregnancy, but I get the feeling that something is wrong with the story. Especially the part about the flight from Texas.

    One of the problems with the Gusty photo is that it shows a woman who is appears to be obviously pregnant. There is no mistaking that in the pose, Sarah is cradling what is supposed to be her pregnant belly.

    Given that appearance, it's amazing that not one flight attendant on Sarah's flights to and from Texas noticed that she was pregnant. It's not a case of water retention, or having flat abs. The woman in that staged photo in the empty hallway is made to look obviously pregnant. A flight attendant would remember offering a seat belt extender, or in first class, a pillow or a blanket to make The Governor of Alaska more comfortable. Not one flight attendant, who is required to make seat belt checks on take off, landing, in choppy weather, not one notice that Sarah was pregnant. That Sarah is an amazing shape-shifter, flat abs one day, and obviously pregnant the nest.

    In 2008 after first reading about the fake pregnancy I was curious. A lady friend had seen Sarah from afar after the pregnancy announcement and she thought Sarah was pregnant. So, I wasn't buying into the fake pregnancy - at least at first glance; I had to read a lot, think a lot, do my own research, validate assumptions, and come to my own conclusion. With all evidence presented, I am convinced that Sarah Palin was NOT pregnant. (I have made this conclusion by trying to convince myself that she was!)

Just a scammer like that prick Frankie Graham. Grifters!!!!! All they want is the power and the money. May they both receive the karma that is due to them.

    could it remotely possible for SARAH to have delivered a baby in, say, February? . . .

    Not even 'remotely possible'! ! She had a 'Tubal-Ligation' -- Tubes tied AND cauterized right after Piper was born (10-11 years ago) -- to be sure of never getting pregnant again, nor being able to ever have the procedure reversed!!!

    So, my 'thoughts' are: There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY she could have ever been able to become pregnant, deliver a baby in February or April, or ever -- at least in the last 10 years.

    Any more thoughts? :o)

    10:37 PM

    I used to think that Palin delivered Trig early in February 2008, but what point would there have been in her faking a pregnancy after that? If she delivered a 26 week Downs infant that was not expected to survive, could she have not just come out and said, hey, I had a preemie and no one knew I was pregnant, but he just got out of hospital on 4/18 and he is fine an he will now become part of our family. No need to fake her own pregnancy, in my opinion.

    It's much more likely that some close family member gave birth late in February 2008 to an infant that was not expected to survive. When he did, Palin announced her "pregnancy" in early March 2008 and poorly faked the remainder of the "gestation" until Trig was out of the hospital. Remember, her father was the one that spilled the beans about leaking water in Texas first and Palin and Todd jumped on that bandwagon and elaborated upon that tale.

    To those speculating about the strange wrinkling/clinging of Palin's pants in the new pictures.... The pants look to be jersey or some cotton knit. It's likely that she is wearing some sort of pantyhose under the pants (probably to keep whatever bizarre pad she's wearing in place), and the pants are clinging to the hose. Or it could be static cling (it was March in AK, after all).

    Wrinkles on her pants...pfft! Sarah Palin was photographed wearing a suit with noticeable and questionable stains on it, while wearing shoes that were too big for her.

    Photos will never be proof, unless it's a bikini shot. What they suggest is that she may have been faking it, because I agree, how do you go from that to that in 2 weeks? And we've seen photos of her in the snow bending and so forth. But it's not the end of the investigation it's the start of it. If it is true she faked it then there has to be more evidence. Find it or it will never be proven. Like Sarah's friend Greta says, people can say whatever they want but I'm still here! And it's the same with Sarah.

    And DONATE folks. Dig deep. Gryphen had to purchase the right to these photos, and that's not cheap.

    I am curious why Wallace posted the photos as he did, and why they weren't marketed. He posted these in April. Is he any relation to Chris Wallace? Is he reputable?

    I am still a little nervous about this. Showed the photos to my husband last night. He agreed she doesn't look pregnant but he felt it was no big deal. Since she's washed up, it is no longer an issue, even the parts about a GOP coverup and media not asking question. There is still work to be done to show why Babygate is still relevant.

    Gryphen: While your efforts are appreciated, you forgot on small thing about Sarah which could affect your analysis: Sarah is satanically possessed. Everyone agree? Thus, her head, in these pictures is actually rotated 180 degrees much like Linda Blair's in the movie, The Exorcist. As a result, we are not looking at Sarah's belly, but rather, her back!

    2 - Is Sarah Palin mentally ill? Ding-ding-ding, we have a winner!

She was trying to protect her "commonsense conservative family values" political aspirations from some serious damage...which backfired anyway when Bristol got pregnant a SECOND time, that time deliberately.

    People with narcissistic behaviors don't do ANYTHING for ANYONE other than themselves. The people around them are an end to a means, and that includes their best friends, parents, spouses, and children.

    These pics are enough to convict her in the court of public opinion. Once Media hears that verdict, then their investigations can begin.

    I suspect we'll be seeing more evidence to capture the public interest.

  110. These photos reinforce Audrey's Nail in the Coffin photo. They're great. But I'm afraid they won't convince many if any who weren't convinced by Nail in the Coffin.

    The problem is that she padded herself a little bit (albeit ineptly) so that observers don't see her as not at all pregnant--but fail to focus on the fact that she can't be almost 8 mos. pregnant, soon to deliver a 6+ pound baby.

    The March 14 photo, on the other hand, shows a totally flat stomach, making the connection easier to no-way-is-she-7.5-mos.-pregnant.

    While I've been reading all the fake pregnancy blogs since Sarah popped out as McCaine's (sic) VP, what will be really needed besides the wooden stake and the decapitation to put the nightmare of Sarah Palin to eternal rest is a date by date, detailed listing of all of Sarah's right to life speeches, tweets, books and appearances that show how she knowingly bilked these poor people and the American public for huge speakers fees taking advantage of her fake deceptive pregnancy and bankrupted these groups.

    I still think there may be an abortion in this story: A daughter was pregnant. Everyone knew. No baby was publicly produced. The McCaine camp had a list of ??? for its candidates. One was have or anyone in your immediate family ever had an abortion? (This was to ensure the pro-lifers would vote for McCaine.) Thus Sarah faked a pregnancy so everyone would think she faked it to cover for a daughter. However, at this point there was no baby. Dr. CBJ helped out by finding 1-3 possible suitable babies for Sarah to adopt. All this was going pretty smoothly until Bristol told mommy dearest she was pregnant in the height of the presidential campaign.

    In a sense it worked. It deflected attention from a possible abortion. It merely got a little hairy, particularly since Sarah is the "I Love Lucy" of American politics.

    To the poster at 5:37 who seems to insinuate that since no one has come forward to collect "a mint" there is nothing to this story. He/she asks why they haven't come forward.

    I would suggest you research what happened to that maternity nurse who was found dead in her home, along with her dogs, and her house set on fire. That would be a pretty clear warning to anyone who might think about telling the truth.

    Sarah and Todd have some really nasty assed friends and family members. Todd has been long time member of the AIP and they have quite a checkered history of violence. The recent arrests of that gang of thugs shows that there is a real lunatic fringe up there and the police are definitely not to be trusted.

    If you read Joe McGinnis's blog, he tells today of the threats he and his family and even his agent's family received.

    So, I absolutely do not blame anyone for keeping their mouths shut and staying out of the public eye. I worry about Gryphen and his daughter's safety. I figure that is why some of the other bloggers have backed off of this story.

    The only way Sarah Palin could conceal a pregnancy well into her 7th month, as she claims she just hid it because of tight abs, would be if she was overweight to begin with, but she wasn't. Overweight pregnant women can conceal pregnancies longer than women who are thin and straight as a board to begin with, just like Sarah Palin.

    And who's pregnant boobies stick out further than their pregnant belly? No one I've ever seen pregnant, only the freak of nature (apparently!) Sarah Palin. She and Bristol just keep on physically defying mother nature, with their ever expanding and shrinking bellies. I guess it's a hereditary condition of convenience, since they are able to do it when ever it best suits them, just like the pathological lying they both seem to be afflicted with.

    First off, to those asking if SP could have given birth in February of 2008, I would respectfully request that they simply look at photos of her between June of 2007 to February of 2008. At no point does it show her even remotely pregnant. There is simply no evidence to substantiate this theory and I think we should put it to rest as it only distracts from the time periods we should really be focusing on which is from mid-February to mid-April of 2008.

    Also, to anon @ 3:08, you ask why would she perpetuate this hoax for someone else; To that I would say the answer is that she didn't do this for someone else, she did it for herself. Remember, this is SP we're talking about.

    I am thinking that Trig may be Todd's baby, the result of one of his affairs.

    If the real mother was just a nobody, perhaps they could hae ignored it.

    If, however, the mother was a threat - maybe threatening to go public, they paid her off and adopted the baby to keep the incident under wraps.

    However, if the motoher was somebody important, a family member,there would certainly be more of a motive to fake the pregancy.

    I am looking at Molly, Sarah's sister. Todd was, afterall, the most vicious in trying to take down Molly's ex, Wooten. Why was Todd so overly concerned about Molly and her ex?

    What do we know about Molly? Just asking.

    I kind of think one of the big reasons that Scarah keeps herself so anorexically thin these days is so that when anyone looks at pics of her in Dec 07-March of 08 that they think she looks pregnant because she looks "fuller" than she does now. But comparing those pics to her back in the Summer of 07 and the previous Winter, she looks exactly the same.

    I stuffed my belly with a wadded up down vest and it looked realistic except something was definitely missing.

    A pinched-up cotton ball made for a very realistic belly-button ~ and, Voila! I really did look 7 months pregnant!

    (a couple of years before that i really was pregnant and set to deliver the first week in November; i was a nun that year )

    More than ever it appears that Todd is Trig's daddy.

    ... totally explains a lot of things about Todd and $arah's relationship.

    What the hell? Are people that into watching the regular folk fart around? I am so behind the times--I NEVER watch reality TV, I'm still watching Three's Company, I Love Lucy , and The Twilight Zone.

    I remember reading Audrey's blog and looking at these photos, and later, Andrea Gusty's rebuttal that these pictures were somehow "faked", and thinking, there is too much focus on the least likely thing: that the photos were "faked" in some way. That they had somehow been tampered with or photoshopped to make a non-pregnant Palin look pregnant. Many went to great lengths on that blog with detailed diagrams and exotic theories of what could have been done to the photos and that Gusty and the others were in on the fake pregancy conspiracy. There was a lot of talk of "Occam's Razor"--and that usually it's the simplest explanation which explains the puzzle. And I think after all this time, we've arrived at it: Andrea Gusty probably wasn't in on any conspiracy. At least that she was aware of. Probably McAllister and the other guy weren't either. They were just used. Sarah Palin used them to get a photo op of herself looking indisputably pregnant, using a fake pregnancy belly. I just now realized the timeline. She was to "give birth" in just five days from that video/photo op. She knew she was to give a speech in Texas and get back to Alaska to receive the baby from who know where or who knows who. She needed to produce some pregnant-looking photos of herself for the public to see. Maybe somebody told her there were a lot of doubters out there, and she needed some undeniably pregnant-looking photos of herself out there for the public record, because the earlier ones (with pillows) just weren't cutting it for some of her more observant critics. She needed to silence these critics, so she donned the pregnancy suit and got herself some airtime discussing the Alaska legislature business. SOMEONE--no one knows who--made sure these photos got posted on a Flickr account--thus insuring the pics hit the Internet. And the rest is history.

    I am of the opinion that Gusty was used. Not so sure about McAllister. Although from his statements about this to Brad Scharlott, he may realize he had been used, and that's why he was so testy toward him. I would completely understand his anger at being used. So, once again--Occam's Razor--it is usually the simplest explanation that explains things. Just my opinion.

    Thanks Gryphen!

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the obvious fraud this woman has perpetrated for the perfect prop for the fundies.

    To think she actually hopped on a plane and took the wild ride is offensive to me as a mother and caring human being.

    There MUST have been many people involved in allowing this to happen, and I'm sure McCain and Franklin Graham know much more than they've divuldged. But CBJ's complicity crosses a line in medicine that I can't believe she's allowed to practice at all.
    What sane woman hides her seventh pregnancy, with a special needs child, from her other children, the ones who would be this child's support system, the ones who would need time to prepare, to educate themselves, to realize this child's needs will impact their lives forever?

    None of it makes any sense on any level.

    My aunt recently passed away, she was the mother of two, her first has a rare form of epilepsy. She worked hard all her life to make sure he would be taken care of, to make sure his sibling understands his needs, his medical schedule, his theraists and the goals and modalities in place to meet those goals. It's something no one takes lightly, let alone hides.

    Sarah's a disgrace to real mothers, she's taken the platform needed to educate others, and squandered it. Yet it's perfectly ok that Bristol cashes in on her promiscuity. She makes me physically ill, and she needs to be exposed for the fraud she is.

    Did I say Thank You, Gryphen?

    One of the problems with the Gusty photo is that it shows a woman who is appears to be obviously pregnant. There is no mistaking that in the pose, Sarah is cradling what is supposed to be her pregnant belly.

    You know what else I notice about these staged Gusty photos? That very smug, almost smirking smile that Palin has on her face. That "I-am-totally-getting-away-with-this" look. Such a look of smug satisfaction is to me, the most obvious giveaway of this huge hoax.

    Who cares!!! Besides it is private. You Americans have strange obsessions. There are many real bad conspiracy's going on that are far more worth the effort.

    Amazing photos.
    What is truly more amazing is that you know people know things and aren't talking. Mercedes, Levi, the nurses or doctor.
    This woman must be evil to have so many people afraid to talk.

    First, let me start by saying that I have 5 children.
    I can also say that I was in great shape with my first child, and while even giving birth to my first child at 7 months and 1 week, still had an obvious belly. This even included me going back to my regular weight 24 hours after birth.
    This being said, I wasn't so lucky with the rest, and as any doctor will tell you, you start to show much quicker in the beginning of your pregnancy the more children you have. So I find it hard to believe that after all the children she has had, that she wouldn't be showing when she was 7 months pregnant, nor the fact that she could become so "HUGE" in just 2 weeks, being that far along. She would have been growing, belly wise, with the trimesters.
    If ever there was proof, this would be the smoking gun!

    Wow. I hate Sarah Palin and fundies in general, but you people are a bunch of kooks.

  154. Anonymous7:33 PM

    Also--too cool how this blogger person champions freedom of expression but screens all comments.

  155. The real horror of this whole story is not Sarah Palin, she's a proven pathological liar, it's the millions who would want her to be vice president or president. What kind of country is this?

  156. I'm coming late to this party, but just had to add that there ARE some women who barely "show" even days before delivery. Judging by a photo (the link to which I've lost...sorry) of her at 7 months in an earlier pregnancy, Sister Sarah was NOT one of them. In that photo, she was already as "big as a house".

    In another photo taken when she was supposedly 6 months pregant with Trig, as she kissed Hubby goodbye at the beginning of a cross-country dogsled race, she was wearing a form-fitting red wool coat, and there was absolutely NO baby bump. Not even a hint of one.

    Lastly, I don't know of ANY commercial airline that will allow a near-term pregnant woman, let alone one who claimed to already be in labor, to board a flight, even a short commuter hop. And having worked on an OB ward and considering this was SUPPOSEDLY SP's FIFTH baby, there's NO WAY she could count on a 20-hours-plus labor. Had she REALLY been pregnant and gone into labor in TX, for her OWN safety...remember Sarah ALWAYS comes first...she would've gone straight to the nearest TX hospital and delivered there.

    I also find it ODD that NO photos of her at that governors' conference can be found and that none of the other attendees were ever interviewed about what she looked like that day. Not to mention, she would've had the same problem as above even being allowed to board a flight from Alaska to Texas in advanced pregnancy. Oh wait. Maybe she rode her broom... ;D

    at least she believes in your freedom to waste your lives gossiping, haters

      Give it up whomever you are. Palin is a manipulative and dishonest woman. If anyone in my family behaved as she did while pregnant with that little boy, I would worry about their sanity. Not VP material, And her pro-life cred was gone when I heard about the flight from Texas. That was insane and put her baby at risk — not even considering the other passengers on the flight seals it too. What if the flight had been diverted? what if one of the passengers on that flight needed to get to a birth or spend the last minutes with a loved one? Sarah Palin only considers what Sarah Palin wants, nobody else.

  158. It's nice story. I like the you have shared the whole process regarding pregnancy of Sarah Palin.

    The showing of a notarized birth certificate would put this to rest. The obstinate position she has assumed ("Why should I have to prove my son isn’t my own ... who are these people to ask!!!!”) really makes it look as if she is a liar and not to be trusted. Any sane politician would have had that birth certificate out there within hours of speculation Trig wasn’t her child.

    Very amusing. Winters are very long in Alaska and people have a lot of time on their hands! Still, there is a delicious irony in a conspiracy theory purporting that Sarah Palin faked a pregnancy after all that birther conspiracy nonsense thrown at Barack Obama.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
