Type 1 diabetes while pregnant? Sarah Palin thinks you’re a big liar and also, she laughed when you fainted, ‘cuz pregnant ladies fainting is SO FUNNY in that pro-lifey kinda way.
Palin wrote on her Facebook page,
Whether accurate or not, for some reason I found this hilarious! Am I out of bounds for cracking up when I saw this take on a nauseated Obama fan, her absentminded pal, and our President’s heroics this week? If so, penance paying I’ll accept. With the Obama White House’s total lack of transparency, it’s no wonder that some will ask whether they staged even a fainting lady in the Rose Garden. What was once a major leap in logic has become a single step because President Obama has lied so often and so blatantly (“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your plan” comes to mind!).’
“Some will ask” whether Sarah Palin is really as bitter as she appears and some others will ask if Sarah Palin ever sorted out that Paul Revere ride bit that confused her. “Some will ask”, indeed. SOME. WILL. ASK.
Palin linked to an article from Drudge by a conspiracy theorist who claimed that female audience who fainted was a fake. No, she wasn’t a fake. The fainting “nauseated Obama fan” is Karmel Allison, who suffers from Type 1 diabetes and is pregnant. This is so funny, y’all! The things Obama does to this country.
Ms. Allison’s blog on how scary her diabetes is during pregnancy:
I had been trending insulin resistant for a few days — requiring on average about 22 units of insulin per day rather than the standard 14 or 15. This was not too surprising, as — well, I suppose I meant to write a piece announcing this, but it hasn’t happened yet, so here goes nothing- I’m pregnant, and the hormonal ups and downs lead to periodic changes in insulin requirements. Still, heading into Friday night, my insulin behaved like water, and I was just pumping it in with relatively little return on investment. By the evening, I had used some 25 units for the day.
Now, being pregnant, hyperglycemia is my bogeyman. Hyperglycemia is bad bad bad. And not just standard, over 200 hyperglycemia. I now begin to panic when I hit 130 mg/dL. So before bed, when I began to climb to 120, 130, I bolused excessively and walked in circles, trying to bring myself back down. I stayed up for an extra hour, waiting, walking, bolusing. Finally I was closer to 100 mg/dL, and went to bed, annoyed to have had to stay awake longer than desired
You may think it’s not very “pro-life” to mock the fact that a pregnant diabetic fainted and then accuse her of lying, but hello: Said diabetic went to Berkley and lives in California, which means she must be an Obama worshiper who is allowed to stand next to President Obama, unlike Obama-stalker Sarah Palin, who is not allowed anywhere near POTUS.
This is unfair. So, the fainter asked for it. “Am I out of bounds for cracking up when I saw this take on a nauseated Obama fan…” Oh, gosh no, Ms. Palin, especially not in light of pallin’ around with terrorists and supporting the right to “ask questions” about the President’s birth certificate, because you know, SOME WILL ASK.
This might look all mean girl, oxymoronic “Republican feminism” but don’t hate on Ms. Palin, she can’t help it. It hurts to lose an election God promised just to you. Especially to one of those dark, “exotic” types.
But anyhoo. Sarah Palin, who crept over the border once to use the great Canadian healthcare system, now thinks the idea of 40 million Americans having access to healthcare a super bad idea because if you can’t keep your same insurance (aka, NONE, for many), well, that sucks so bad that we might as well let you die. Don’t say Palin isn’t an ideas gal.
At least Palin didn’t instruct her dwindling followers to stop and harass any pregnant diabetics who may have signed up for Obama Care like she told her cult to harass anyone with an Obama bumper sticker.
Pregnant diabetics fainting – HAHAHAHAH! SO FUNNY. Clearly no one except Sarah Palin needs health insurance.
