So, wait a second…I read in the NYTimes today that Sarah Palin’s water supposedly broke while she was in Dallas.  And then she flew home to Anchorage, where she gave birth to her fifth child?

That is bar-none the craziest thing I have ever heard.  Fifth child, she’s got time, or thinks she’s got time to fly to Anchorage?  How many hours is that flight?  And what was she doing flying that late in her pregnancy?  Most doctors won’t let you fly after your seventh month.  Plus, she’s 43 or 44 at the time of pregnancy, so she would have had plenty of ultrasounds, maybe even an amnio.  They would have known it was a Downs Syndrome baby well in advance of his birth.  So, given that she had a high-risk pregnancy, I doubt even further that she would have been able to fly at that point in the pregnancy.

But again — fifth child.  When I had my third, they didn’t know what would happen.  When you’ve had kids in the past, the wheels are greased.  There’s the possibility that the baby can shoot right out of there.  Given that her water had broken…why wouldn’t she have stayed in Dallas and had the baby?

Makes about as much sense as carting that kid all over the country and keeping him up all night.

I’m not saying the story’s not true, but you have to admit, that something about it doesn’t add up.

By the way, the kid’s name is short for Trigger.  They named their kid Trigger Von Bill Paxton Palin.  Bill Paxton?  Are you freaking kidding me?  The dude from Twister and Aliens?  You named your kid after him

Oh, and here are some family values for you:

  1. We talked about this in my office awhile back, and none of us moms can fathom how this was even possible. I mean, I guess it is … but c’mon. And it’s been reported that Palin knew this was a Down syndrome baby during her pregnancy, so yeah … if she knew this was an issue, this is irresponsible behavior at best. Just one more thing to add to the list of why I don’t care much for the woman.

    What do you mean… the dude was CHET is “Weird Science.” Sounds pretty logical to me. 😛
