holy down syndrome baby mccain, she's a liar!

Update no.2. OK. This story just keeps getting weirder and weirder. Here's the latest tidbit.

ST. PAUL, Sept 1 (Reuters) - The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Labor Day Editor's note: We're having a hard time believing this story has any merit. It's been on the street for a couple of days and sure, it's a holiday weekend and there's the hurricane to cover, but it's also the start of the RNC in the Twin Cities. It's not that far to Alaska, and if this story had any veracity, then all the big media hogs would be all over it by now. They are not. It's would seem to be a pretty easy story to check out. We wonder why it hasn't and are left to believe that it's likely the work of some prankster from the left or right, a bit hard to say.

Dailykos is reporting that the 5th child of Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin (you know, the one with Down syndrome) may not be her own! Instead, it's her 16-year old unwed, still-in-catholic school daughter's baby. The argument is pretty compelling and there's plenty of photo evidence to boot. Or is it hoot?

Perhaps there's more to the Republicans cancelling of Monday's RNC events than we know. If the allegations are true, I don't see how she can survive as the VP nominee through Wednesday, when she would be slated to accept the nomination.

Can anyone say Mitt "National Lampoon Vacation" Romney? Or worse yet, Joe "Smuck" Lieberman?

An interesting medical perspective: Moms over the age of 36 and under the age of 21 are more likely to have downs babies than other child bearing women. So both these Palin girls are qualified.

From the Pastoral perspective: How does the proposed (by everyone involved but the daughter and the daughter-doer) marriage of the Baby Daddy to the 17y/o daughter reconcile the situation for Dobson, the RNC, and the Family Values group? If the Boy isn't smart enough to "wrap the rascal" before sticking it into the underage girl, then why would he be considered good husband material? It's like telling the raped woman, who is violated and then becomes pregnant, that if she marries the rapist, then everything will be a ok.

From a Social perspective: Palin, et al, are reinforcing the lower 48 view that Alaska is the boogan trailer park paradise of the North.

From the Chauvinist (not Calvinist) perspective: I love the idea of a VP that looks good in a bikini. Hillary may have put 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling, but it's the babe with the nice hooters that was able to float her way through. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa...

Yes, it's true, I'm still a dick,
