"If Sarah Palin is the mother [of Trig Palin], it begs the question as to why she kept herself so thin during her pregnancy. Is it possible that an extreme fitness routine may have caused her to have the baby prematurely? What does that say about her judgement?"
At least some sanity came from Huff-Po (the article; not the above comment) regarding this salacious lie that attacks Sarah Palin. It attacks her not because she's conservative. Not because there's a disagreement on policy. Not because she's "Wrong for America." But because she's an evil, calculating woman!
I won't even bother linking to the source B.S. on little Trig and the rest of the Palin family. It's the worst of the worst, and one of the reasons I, a liberal of good conscience, started this blog.
But this comment is officially one of the Netroots' finest. I selected it because it's at the top.
Now Sarah Palin is bad news because she wasn't fat enough when she was pregnant. If homegirl isn't wolfing down ten cheeseburgers and gaining a sexy sixty to her waistline, then she's irresponsible.
Goooootcha. I would love to admit that I searched far and wide for a comment such as this to try and take the Netroots out of context, but -- sadly -- this is commonplace. I won't even bother to link to the myriad of comment-crap along these lines.
Stop the character assassination on Sarah Palin, and don't dare bring her family into it.
The Obama-Dems have learned nothing.
