PROFESSOR: Sarah Palin Probably Staged A Gigantic Hoax About Being Trig's Mother

Henry Blodget | Apr. 13, 2011, 6:29 PM

An interesting footnote has emerged to a theory that raged around the Internet during Sarah Palin's candidacy for Vice President:

The theory is that Sarah Palin is actually the grandmother of her purported son Trig, not the mother, and that she staged a gigantic hoax during the campaign to cover up this fact.

Professor Bradford Scharlott of Northern Kentucky University has looked into this story in detail and written a long academic article (here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/52841266/Prof ... ancy-Rumor) about it. He concludes two things:

First, that the "conspiracy theory" is likely true--Sarah Palin staged a huge hoax, and, second,

The American media is pathetic for not pursuing the story more aggressively

(much more)

============

Personally, I'll believe she's Trig's mother when the finally produces his Kenyan Birth Certificate.

I am not a fan of Sarah for sure but this is pretty weak evidence that she may not be Trig's mother. The only thing I would question is why she hasn't shown proof she is the mother by allowing the hospital to release the birth records and why she hasn't released Trig's birth certificate. But Sarah probably views this hoax conspiracy as a way to stay in the public eye. I liken her to a spoiled child who cries for attention no matter if it's good or bad just so long as she gets it. She'll play it.

I, for one, have always thought there is a very good chance Sarah faked the 5th pregnancy. She's a media diva, and thinks ALL attention, even bad press, is a good thing. If she really IS the mother of her 5th child, what does that say about not putting her pregnancy and the well-being of a baby she was carrying, in jeopardy? I, for one, would love to see a Paternity Test, administered by someone neutral and above reproach. And until THAT happens, there are a lot of people who are going to take most of what she says with a grain of salt.

Listening to Donald Trumps talking points I see. That would mean the other people that made birth announcements in the paper that same day must have been born in Kenya too, if you notice the one above and right below don't have weights either. Perhaps they are part of the plot too ! In fact my son didn't have any of the information in the paper announcement either, perhaps he was born in Kenya !

Seti - kinda overstating the point here --

I am a grandparent and yes have put birth announcements in local papers - they were just boy or girl born to son/DIL or daughter/SIL - nothing about a name or even where born - just grandparents announcement. When I was working for a newspaper, we did print a lot of similar announcements. Those announcements certainly are not birth certificates, nor can they be used to prove a child was born in that local community.

This must have been damage control in anticipation of Palin's speech in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, it looks like she did rather well.
