So Here’s the Thing

Let’s say that we believe Sarah Palin when she says she’s Trig’s biological mother.   Despite the pictures and the inconsistencies and the inexplicable refusal to produce a birth certificate, let’s say we buy the story anyway.

That means that Sarah Palin was willing to risk her own life, and the life of her child, by taking an 18-hour trip including two commercial flights, a layover, and an hour on snowy, winding back roads, to get to a small local hospital that didn’t have the facilities to handle the problems her child was likely to have (assuming he wasn’t born at 35,000 feet, because remember labors get shorter with more pregnancies), when she had started the day literally blocks from one of the best medical centers in the US.

Is that the kind if judgement you want in one of the leaders of your country?  Personally I would actually feel better about her for trying to cover up for her daughter–if she hadn’t then thrown the same daughter under the bus later, that is.


I May Be Crazy

Everyone needs to read this blog.  It’s not that they’re posting information that isn’t available elsewhere, but they do have a great deal of stuff all in one place, and some of the comments…

Well, the thought of American citizens being treated like this would have struck me as conspiracy-theory crap not two weeks ago.  But, well, there it is, and there’s corroboration and all that. 

Toronto is looking better all the time–it’s not as if I can change the government.  Heck, at my income bracket, if I’d lived in New Orleans I’d be one of the people out on the street, if I wasn’t dead.


Yes, I am aware that you don’t like Republicans.  Richard Nixon was a traitor and a war criminal.  The GOP is responsible for the downfall of the American government, and our once-elected President has the IQ of SPAM.  I don’t even necessarily disagree with you on any of these topics. 

Now please shut the hell up about it.
