The Principled Denizens of the Obamasphere

Well well well. Markos, don’t you have a lovely little group of bloggers there!

Edgeoforever reports directly from Cheetoville:

Okay, I just have to diary about this, although in many ways this falls into the “none of our business category”.  

But it appears that Pallin’s last child, a baby with Down’s syndrome, may not be hers.  It may be that of her teenage daughter.  

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to promote this story. And the Kossacks know it:

But will that stop the Obamans? Who knows? So far, it looks like they are leaning towards promoting the story despite its obvious falseness.

This would not be such a big deal, but people like Keith Olbermann routinely take stories directly from the Daily Kos and report it as fact.

I think we should spread this story far and wide before the lie gets its boots on.

    madamab, it already seems to be spreading. Over at Correntewire, chicago dyke did a story on Palin that included this smear as if it were fact! If even Corrente is accepting this crap, I’m afraid it’s going to spread.

  2. Oh no! CD – do you have an account there? Can you link to this or EOF’s blog about it? They won’t let me comment there.

  3. I was banned from Corrente for bringing up William Ayers

  4. I Love the William Ayers story. What’s wrong with it?

  5. They are actually going through with it. there’s another diary – using photos as evidence – lots of excitement – and only a few ashamed of it. I posted a to it comment at my blog – but don’t want to link it. They do give props to the guy who “broke the story” (the one featured here).
    I found it promoted at RCP – readers’ stories

  7. Oh my Gawd. The Cheetos have utterly and completely lost it.

    Markos is an absolute fucking disgrace. We should coordinate a writing campaign to him.

    There is a story up that completely debunks this lie:

    http://www.audacityofhypocrisy.com/2008/08/30/dailykos-rumors-debunked-here-is-sarah-palin-pregnancy-photo-on-feb-10th-2008/

    Notice the pictures, particularly the one at the bottom. Palin is very obviously pregnant. I also read somewhere else that her water broke while she was giving a speech in Texas, and that she was flown back home to Alaska, when she delivered.

    This is really such a stupid rumor to push because I bet there are hundreds of other pictures showing how pregnant she looks. She was a governor, for God’s sake, so her picture had to have been taken a lot during her pregnancy.

  9. Thanks, CD. I appreciate the pictures. Clearly this athlete and runner, normally trim (as she is now), is at least 30 lbs. heavier in those pictures. And now she is breastfeeding, which clearly cannot be done without having given birth first!

    It is amazing how low these psychopaths can sink.
