Pundit: Lack of Palin records raises questions about Trig

October 31st, 2008

From “The Daily Dish,” by conservative blogger and author Andrew Sullivan for the Atlantic Magazine:

Sullivan says Gov. Palin’s failure to release her medical records raises important questions about what he calls her “alleged fifth pregnancy.” He challenges the McCain campaign to make good its promise to produce documents proving that Trig Palin is actually Sarah Palin’s son. An excerpt:

Why does Sarah Palin refuse to prove that her baby — the baby that has been a campaign prop for two months — is actually one she gave birth to? Remember what we have been told by a McCain source about Palin:

“She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else.”

If her own family doesn’t trust her, why should we? I’m begging the McCain campaign to make me look like a total fool for even wondering. Please, blow my skepticism out of the water.

    If a conservative is raising questions about Sarah Palin’s health records not being released before the election, and using baby Trig as a tool to gain access to them, I don’t know what else he could be looking for, but I doubt it’s anything to do with the ‘alleged’ fifth pregnancy. I’d like the McCain campaign to make him look like a total fool for even wondering, too. It seems fairly late in the campaign to release her medical records, maybe they have decided not to do that. The other candidates who have had their medical records released probably don’t like that invasion of privacy, either ~ but using Trig to get at Sarah Palin’s information is low. I guess conservatives don’t have to listen when Obama says families are off-limits. On the other hand, if Sarah Palin’s medical records have anything she does not want under public scrutiny, I’m guessing that there are thousands of women who would be able to identify with and relate to whatever it is, though. I don’t think the Republican party understands that or the records would have been released. And rude speculation about that darling baby could be called out for what it is.

    Is this guy suggesting that Trig is merely a political prop to be returned to the rightful owner after the election? Is he suggesting she adopted him instead of giving birth to him herself and if so, what difference does that make? I suppose he thinks she faked breastfeeding Trig in her office too. And why would she do any of this before she was even being considered for the vp candidacy? He says this issue about Trig raises important questions but I can only think of one: what’s this guy’s point?
