The main stream media shied away from ever asking ex-Governor (aborted mid-term) Sarah Palin about her “wild ride” wherein she claimed to have broken water with her fifth pregnancy in Texas before giving a speech, and then flying all the way home to Alaska leaking amniotic fluid, changing planes once, before driving two hours to her preferred hospital to a doctor who did not specialize in delivering special needs babies.
Palin’s claim to the Wild Ride has raised more than a few eyebrows, but MSM has ignored it, not wanting to be seen as part of the Trig Truther “conspiracy” theorists on the internet. As is so often the case, MSM missed the point. Either Palin made the Wild Ride, thereby endangering her fifth child and her own life, or she was dishonest about the birth of her fifth child.
There is no middle ground here. And either scenario, quite frankly, paints the portrait of someone not fit to run the local PTA, let alone be the VP candidate for our country.
But here we are, a year later. MSM largely ignored the issue as to Sarah’s judgment and the media has begun parroting Sarah’s Facebook entries as if they were legitimate policy statements, coming from an informed and reliable source. Even after she’s been proven a outright liar and instigator of great damage to our ability to dialogue about important issues, like healthcare. But today, we get a hint from Sarah’s daughter’s ex-boyfriend and father to Bristol’s baby as to exactly what kind of person Sarah Palin is, and how far she is willing to extend the boundaries of “truth”.
Excerpt from Levi Johnston’s Vanity Fair Interview:
“Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him. That way, she said, Bristol and I didn’t have to worry about anything. Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging—she wouldn’t give up. She would say, “So, are you gonna let me adopt him?” We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn’t want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid.”
Levi has hired a full-time body-guard since he and Bristol Palin broke up, for those of you who are now worried about his safety.
I’m leaning toward believing Levi on this, because a) he hasn’t been proven a liar once yet while Sarah Palin has been proven a reliable liar and b) this is eerily similar to the email revelations of the McCain camp regarding Steve Schmidt’s refusal to lie for Palin, after Palin steadfastly and earnestly denied that her husband Todd was ever a member of the AIP. There’s a trend here.
In the case of the scathing email exchanges between Schmidt and Palin, we learned that Schmidt had done his research, and he had the proof that Todd was a member in good standing for over 7 years.
Palin claimed Todd had merely ticked off the wrong box on his voting ballot. Schmidt had a copy of the ballot and knew this was not true, so he refused to make the false press announcement demanded by Palin, saying that Todd was never a member of AIP. You can imagine the press release she had ready to go; If it was anything like her usual PR, it was full of poutrage, indignation and false accusations towards partisan political operatives who had descended upon the biblical Queen for the sole purpose of derailing her efforts to cleanse America of the devil and she was innocent as the driven snow, you betcha.
The person with the proven instinct to warp the truth to fit her own agenda to such an extent that she would blatantly lie about something easily disproved (Todd’s AIP membership) is now accused of trying to force her daughter to pass off her son as Palin’s own so as to not hurt her politically. In this case, Levi is referring to their son, Tripp, not Trig, the special needs baby born to the Palins in April of 2008. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to connect the dots.
Nor does it take a rocket scientist to know that while Sarah Palin’s ex-boyfriend is running the Alaskan prison where Levi Johnston’s mother may reside, a prison already rife with lawsuits regarding alleged abuses of prisoners, Levi may not be ready to tell all.
But he has already told enough.
In light of the latest revelation about Sarah Palin’s lack of integrity and character, I can think of nothing more sobering or more deserving of great examination and contemplation than the Republican party’s true goals and agenda regarding our nation. Was Sarah Palin’s candidacy a cruel, deliberate act of a party so cynical it cares not about the future of this country? Where is the apology from McCain?
It’s truly spine-chilling to realize Sarah Palin, a person capable of living such lies, was so close to the White House. Shame on the Republican party and shame on our main stream media. Luckily, we were saved from the Republican Party’s folly by informed voters and are now being informed by an 18 year old young man whose life was turned upside down a year ago, when his girlfirend’s mother was “tapped” to be the Republican Vice Presidential candidate.
Luckily for us all, she lost.
