It’s looking extremely likely that Sarah Palin’s latest child is not hers, but is actually her daughter’s.
I can’t contain my glee, to be honest. McCain is toast. But also - she so fucking had it coming. This one scandal, in one package, so completely captures the hypocrisies and dishonesty of Republicans. They were getting ready to bludgeon pro-choicers with a Down syndrome baby, which is a disgusting rotten trick, when disability rights advocates tend to be left-wing and pro-choice, not Republicans (who are notorious for their disregard for babies once they’re born). And this muckraking wouldn’t be so easy to do with a clean conscience if the baby had not been made a campaign issue by Republicans, who value women only as womb-machines.
