Ok, there is enough convincing evidence surrounding the birth of Sarah Palin’s most recent son, Trig Palin, to conclude that something very fishy is going on.
There’s the curious unfolding of events surrounding Sarah Palin’s pregnancy:
Jnail of PoliticalBase.com has the best collection of the evidence against the Sarah Palin “things are as they seem” line coming out of the GOP.
This is not an issue of pregnancy. It is not an issue of lying or conspiracy either. It is not an issue of Palin’s judgment, or McCain’s judgment in choosing her. This is an issue of the media’s double standards.
See, for months at a time, we heard the media regurgitate day in and day out four sentences taken out of context by Reverend Wright, not Barack Obama himself, but a person that he knows. The media didn’t even dig in past the context before slashing Obama up with the Wright non-story. Here, we have a very rich instance of Palin, a seemingly family-oriented picture-perfect head of household, raising a daughter who gets pregnant at 16. Do I care about her daughter being pregnant? No. But would I care about it if it was being churned through the media day in and day out, with leading questions such as “How does this reflect on the Palin’s ability to discipline their own children?”, “Is Sarah Palin a good mother?”, “Is everything really as it seems, or does this show a dark side to the Palin family?” We’d all have an opinion after a couple weeks of the media’s traditional style of beating a dead horse into glue and not stopping there. You can be damn sure that if Obama had a pregnant 16 year old (black) daughter, that’s exactly what would be happening. But no. The media is asking whether it is sexist to cover these stories instead. They didn’t ask us if it was racist to call Obama “presumptuous” for an entire week? They didn’t ask us if it was racist to repeat McCain’s claim that Obama was using the race card for an entire week? You have got to be kidding me.
