[Homestead] Sarah's Choice

Apparently this rumor of it being Bristol's baby was floating around Alaska
from the moment Trig was born. People who worked with Sarah every day had no
idea she was 7 months pregnant. There were also rumors that girls in
Bristol's school knew Bristol was pregnant, but I don't put much stock in
that; you know how high school girls can be.
Anyway, if Bristol got pregnant around the time Trig was born, as the McCain
campaign told us, she couldn't have been Trig's mother. I guess it depends
on the timing of Bristol's baby.

Okay, so what are we saying, but not saying?
Are we saying that Bristol had a baby in April, and that Sarah wore a
fat suit during those last months, totally faking her water breaking,
and that a physician somewhere(maybe 2) will soon lose his license to
practice because he lied about 1. the mono and 2. Palin's medical records?
So, lets say for the sake of this, that Trig is Bristol's.
If you are the mother of 4 and your teenage daughter is carrying a baby
with Downs syndrome(you know they knew) and your belief set is that
abortion is wrong, and you truly believe that family is first....and as
a mother, you want to see your daughter fulfill her dreams of her
future...then what do you do?? There are four options
1. Abortion, which we have determined was not an option for Palin,
nevermind that Bristol is underage
3. Keep the baby, have Bristol marry and raise it as her own
4. Keep the baby, pretend it is yours-raise it yourself because as a
mother, you sacrifice for your children.
Because of my bias on Adoption, I will spare you a diatribe and suffice
it to say that like abortion, adoption is not always an option.
IMO, knowing Palin's religious beliefs and being a mother myself...I
would choose #4. I could go into a lot more detail on these numbered
options for Bristol, but I won't in this post.
I can honestly say that I would have chosen #4 in that situation.

I suppose everyone is different. I don't know whether Bristol had mono
or a baby, but I can tell you that I was out of school with mono for
over 2 months, almost 3 months. I had good days and bad days, and while
I was too young to drive(I was 12), I probably could have driven on good
days. Some days, my lymph nodes would swell up so much I could hardly
move. Sometimes I had a fever and flu like symptoms. It would go away
for a day or two, then come back. I really was sick for a whole school

You know what is weird? There are multiple news circles in America.
You apparently hear news that I never hear, and visa versa, I'm sure.
Blacks apparently are listening to a different channel as well.
Anyway, until today, I never heard anything about Trig not being Palin's
son. I do recall seeing some offhand comment about it here on the list
months ago, but I gave it no further thought. At the time, I could have
cared less. I really don't care too much now, but it is important to
determine the truth of the matter considering that Palin will eventually
emerge from the wilds of Alaska.
If you pin me down, I will say that Trig belongs to Bristol and Palin
took responsibility, but I have done no research on this whatsoever and
only know what I have read here...that is just my gut based on the
'facts' expressed here. It does say a lot about her, the lengths she is
willing to go to for her family. While I would have probably made the
same choice, I don't think I would have resorted to the water breaking
lie. I might have worn a fat suit, though, to protect my daughter's
reputation and to convince people that I was the one who was preggers.
It is really a sad situation for all involved, but it could have been worse.
Does it mar Palin's judgement with respect to her being a possible vice
presidential/presidential candidate? Of course. I don't think it makes
her trash or 'common as dirt' though. I think it makes her human, and
very pragmatic, a trait shared also by Obama.
