Six pounds, seven ounces and maybe a lie.

Watch the video: Is this governor seven months pregnant? Republican VP candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin prematurely delivered her fifth child, Trig (weighing a healthy six pounds, two ounces) in her eighth month on April 18, after announcing her pregnancy in February.

On April 17, despite her water being broken and suffering contractions, she boarded a six-hour flight from Dallas, TX to Juneau, AK to give birth.

But many are now claiming the child is not hers at all, but that of her daughter Bristol, who left school in late 2007 for mononucleosis and remained away from class for almost five months. The right-wing blogosphere weighs in. Check out the comments.

In March, 2008, she gave an interview (scroll to video) to the producers of Alaska Podshow (entire site now down, oddly) which features her hiking the windy and wet streets of the capital city from her governor's mansion to the statehouse. Here is the governor in Alaska Magazine at six months pregnant, (PDF warning) check out the images (except for the dated last one) and make up your mind.

Just fucking STOP IT, okay? It's none of your fucking business. Stop prying into other people's vaginas, even if you happen to oppose them politically. What is wrong with you people?

I really hate to see us get into this. Does it matter what this mother has or hasn't done for her daughter..

This is already being dissected in the ultra-long thread about Sarah Palin. Unless some super-conclusive piece of evidence comes out, this can probably stay in there.

It's either true or it's not true, but no amount of looking a photographs is going to prove anything. That's some www.trigpalinwasaninsidejob.com type of bullcrap.

This is beyond being fucking stupid. It's all the way into craptastic.

Does this mean we can drop the charges against her for allegedly flying whilst in her third trimester?

Here is the governor in Alaska Magazine at six months pregnant

You do realize that when a monthly magazine is dated as February, it was probably in the newsstands by early-mid January and that the photos were thus probably taken in December at the latest, right?

In March, 2008, she gave an interview (scroll to video) to the producers of Alaska Podshow (entire site now down, oddly)

Sorry to conspiracy bubble...

This woman has chosen to take the position of being second in line to rule the United States of America for the next four years. You'd better goddamn bet that everything this woman does is my goddamn business.If she was anxious to avoid her vagina business from being looked into, perhaps she shouldn't have agreed to being nominated. Clinton's dick "business" was fair game--so her "vagina business" is also my business, especially if her ass is lying about it. Its the lying not the "business" that I really care about.

Yep, that's EXACTLY what I tell the right-wing anti-choicers.

Y'know, people like Sarah Palin. If this is indeed true, it shows a shocking lack of sense.

If she legislates her morality down everyone's throat, her own choices deserve as much scrutiny. Sorry if that offends you.

What's an example of when she's legislated her morality down people's throats?
