Leave it to the "Moderate" Voice to find a way to sink below the level of the politics of personal destruction.

Even Joe McCarthy would come off as reasonable compared to this.

On March 5th, 2008 Alaska’s Republican Governor, Sarah Palin, announced to the media that she was 7 months pregnant with her 5th child. She is currently 44.

Palin’s daughter Bristol is 16 and attends an Anchorage high school. Students who have attended class with her report that she has been out of school for months, claiming a prolonged case of mono.

Palin does not appear pregnant in any recent photographs.

Nice to know TMV is now co-habitating with the "truthers" these days.

If you go over and read the comments you will notice our blogworld friend C Stanley trying to nudge the burgeoning brownshirts back into the light. It is a valiant effort doomed to failure I believe.

LOL, thanks for the shoutout, Rich. Occasionally I still feel compelled to try, despite the futility. This particular story really provoked me, I guess because I have a teenaged daughter myself and can't even imagine her being subjected to something like this.

I know that generally ignoring the smears is best, but part of me wishes that Sarah Palin would pause during a press appearance and say, "You know, although I shouldn't have to do this, the fact that nasty rumors are circulating about my daughter leads me to want to lay this matter to rest." Then she pulls out a breast pump and discretely opens her jacket, covering herself modestly of course, and fills a bottle for Trig.

Still wouldn't work...someone would claim it was some sort of special effect. :-)
