Sarah Palin proposes a birth certificate swap - Obama's for Trig's.
I mean, truly, if your past is fair game and your kids are fair game, certainly Obama’s past should be. I mean, we want to treat men and women equally, right?
Hey, you know, that’s a great point, in that weird conspiracy-theory freaky thing that people talk about that Trig isn’t my real son. And a lot of people say, “Well you need to produce his birth certificate! You need to prove that he’s your kid!” Which we have done. But yeah, so maybe we could reverse that and use the same [unintelligible]-type thinking on them.
One might wonder whether a national Dem of prominence comparable to hers is making noise about Trig, but she has a modest point about the size of the fever swamps.
MEANWHILE, OVER AT FACEBOOK... Ms. Palin goes on to distance herself from her remarks:
Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so
choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the
2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for
proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and
voters had a right to ask... which they have repeatedly. But at no
point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews –
have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or
suggested that he was not born in the United States.
- Sarah Palin
Whatever. Just spell the name right.
