Things That Make You Hate All Democrats

From Andrew Sullivan at the Atlantic Monthly:

Things That Make You Go Hmmm

Andrew Sullivan, 31 Aug 2008

Questions for the McCain-Palin campaign:

Where has Bristol Palin (far right, holding Trig, with a ring on her wedding finger) been for the past year? Has she been attending high school? Or was she absent because of infectious mononucleosis for between five and eight months, as is now being reported on the Internet?

Why would a 43 year old woman, on her fifth pregnancy, with a Down Syndrome child, after her amniotic fluid has started to leak, not go to the nearest hospital immediately, even if she was in Texas for a speech?

Why would she not only not go to the hospital in Texas, but take an eight-hour plane flight to Seattle and then Anchorage?

Why would she choose to deliver the baby not in the nearest major facility in Anchorage but at a much smaller hospital near her home-town?

Why did the flight attendants on the trip home say she bore no signs of being pregnant?

It strikes me as likely that there are reasonable answers to these questions – more reasonable than the only one given so far –

“You can’t have a fish picker from Texas,” said Todd –

and the rumors buzzing across the Internets and the press corps are unfounded and unseemly. There must be plenty of medical records and obstetricians and medical eye-witnesses prepared to testify to Sarah Palin’s giving birth to Trig. There must be a record of Bristol’s high school attendance for the past year. And surely, surely, the McCain camp did due diligence on this. But the noise around this story is now deafening, and the weirdness of the chronology sufficient to rise to the level of good faith questions. So please give us these answers – and provide medical records for Sarah Palin’s pregnancy – and put this to rest.

We didn’t want to post this. It is simply too despicable for words.

Mind you, the Democrats are forever claiming that the Republicans are character assassins who smear their candidates.

Never mind that their proof is always “email campaigns” that nobody we know ever got an email from.

But the Democrats smears are right out in the open. And straight from the gutter.

Speaking of the gutter, here is the original post from the Daily Kos which began this loathsome attack:

One of the contributors at the Daily Kos has even suggested that the daughter was incestuously raped by her father.

These people are truly unhinged. They are rabid with mindless hate.

Meanwhile, someone should take a look at the odds of Downs Syndrome Children being born to teenagers.

Here is an entry from Wikipedia:

Down syndrome


Maternal age influences the chances of conceiving a baby with Down syndrome. At maternal age 20 to 24, the probability is one in 1562; at age 35 to 39 the probability is one in 214, and above age 45 the probability is one in 19.

As if this smear wasn’t enough, the similarly despicable Alan Colmes has suggested that Mrs. Palin caused her child to have Down Syndrome because she was not careful enough in her pre-natal care.

From the Google cache of the page:

(Click images to enlarge.)

Hey, never mind that the same Wikipedia entry also notes:

Current research (as of 2008) has shown that Down syndrome is due to a random event during the formation of sex cells or pregnancy. There has been no evidence that it is due to parental behavior or environmental factors.

After all, there are Republicans to smear.

By the way the Rogers Cadenhead cited is the person behind the ultra-left Drudge rip-off site, The Drudge Retort. Cadenhead is of course a world renown expert on such matters as prenatal care and Downs Syndrome.

But which is it? Are we to condemn Mrs. Palin for not reacting properly to her water breaking, or for pretending to have a child to cover-up for a wayward daughter?

The Democrats need to pick one outragous calumny and stick to it.

The always courageous Mr. Colmes has subsequently removed his insight on Mrs. Palin’s maternal failings. Of course he is now blaming right-wingers for misunderstanding him.

But damn Alan Colmes, Rogers Cadenhead, Andrew Sullivan and their fellow miscreants from the Democrat Underground and Daily Kos for even making us have to post about such things.

Damn them all to hell.

    Thank you for doing such a good job exposing the outrageousness of Democrats. They are truly hateful and disgusting people.

    Sites like the Daily Kos, HuffPost and water carriers such as Olbermann, Matthews, all cannot meet the same standards to which they hold Republicans.

    Their own presidential candidate has been shielded from much talk about his sex and drug abuse as well as his ties to extremists and murderers.

  2. _NH says:

    PS – the good thing about the Palin family values is, there will be no abortions and no welfare and the family is supportive.

    As it should be.
