'An Addition
To the First Family'


1 of 3


Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, here on Feb. 24, stunned her state Wednesday when
she announced she is expecting her fifth child in May. Although the 44-year-old
Republican is seven months along, she "simply doesn't look pregnant," a
reporter wrote in the Alaska Daily News.


Palin, 44, who just three months ago was modeling for the fashion magazine
Vogue, doesn't look seven months pregnant.


"I will be delivering an addition to the first family," Palin told a stunned
group of reporters.
********************************************************************

3 months prior she was modeling for vogue, three days later back at work???

2. Could this possibly be covered up?
It would seem that if the baby was her daughter's someone will uncover the truth. Would the McBush campaign be that foolish? Oh, I take that last question back.

18. I posted the link because the article was posted back in marchSo her daughter could have been as muc
as 6 months (if dated with the article), or just 4 or 5 depending when exactly the picture was taken. However, I would expect that the newspaper did take this picture around the time they were working on the article. I've only had one pregnancy and I didn't show until at least the middle of my 6th month. I only gained 12 pounds the entire nine months I was pregnant.

21. But you show much earlier in subsequent pregnancies. Belly stretches out earlier -
it's not as resilient, since it's already been stretched out once (or in her case, FOUR previous times)

(the pregnancy was announced in early March) but I can't find that photo. Have you seen the Feb 24th photo anywhere?

away with, yet he continually gets away with leads you to believe IT IS NOT TRUE cause she couldnt get away with it.

they didnt tell kids, especially younger ones. parents know tell them, prepare
went to work three days after. old, 4 kids, working and preg.... i dont think so
her water broke in texas, let her get on a plane and fly to alaska to deliver

This only makes our side look fucking stupid. It's obviously bullshit.

Lots of women don't show much when pregnant, and a physically fit woman is often capable of going right back to work if her job is not a physically demanding job. She is a Governor, not a waitress or a mechanic.

57. Sorry, it's very different.
Nobody was coming forth and saying they saw Obama coming out of a mosque. It was all thin air. In this case there is some evidence, albeit circumstantial, to support at least keeping an open mind until there is definitive proof one way or the other.

The stance of some here is that it could not be true, but the fact is, it could be. Not is, could be. I'm just sayin'.

58. It really is
Someone saw Obama come out of a school in Muslim Indonesia, so who's to say Obama's not a Muslim? That's the same kind of reasoning as here - taking one random thing & blowing it up w/innuendo & hints. Or the old Fox News classic: "some people say...", which is perfect because it gets the smear out there w/o any sourcing. Ex: "Some people say" the daughter missed school. Who said that? What, you want names?? I don't have to give you any names! :rofl: It's reminiscent of the crazy people who spouted the Obama smears on MSNBC - they've got nothing but smears & third-hand rumors.
