Yes, Andrew, Trig was born at Mat-Su Regional Hospital

Posted by joshpainter on April 28, 2011

We’ve expressed some rather pointed criticism of David Weigel in the past, but today we have to give him due credit. Weigel is proving what a fraud Andrew Sullivan is:

I called up Mat-Su Regional Hospital, where, according to contemporary media reports, Trig Palin was born. I was patched through to the family birthing center.

[…]

Why’d I call the hospital? One of the original concerns Sullivan had with the Trig Palin story — one that’s based on an absent fact, and not on innuendo — was that Mat-Su Regional did not list Trig Palin’s birth on its website. There’s a portion of the web site, the baby nursery, where newborns are listed. Trig, born on April 18, 2008, is not there. And that’s somewhat curious. So: Is every baby born at the hospital listed on the web site?

“No, it’s not automatic,” said the clerk. “Truth be told, we do take security photos of all the babies, but if the parents want their babies listed on the web site, they can request it. We’re really sensitive about it, though. I think the hospital took up the policy not to publish names automatically because of possible baby kidnapping issues.”

The clerk, realizing that Washington, D.C. reporters don’t typically cold call her hospital, asked me if this call was about “our former governor.” It was. Was Trig Palin born there?

“Oh, that’s not even a question,” she said… “Yes. Everybody here remembers that. Yes, this is where the Palins come — this is their family hospital.”

[…]

Is anything preventing Andrew, or one of the Daily Dish’s assistants, from making that call? … The current tone of his Trig-blogging is horribly meta — “just asking questions,” without asking questions of the people who can answer all of this stuff.

Trig Conspiracy debunked by an unlikely investigator

Posted by joshpainter on April 23, 2011

The last person we would have expected to step forward to debunk the conspiracy theory which has been trumpeted for years now, mainly by pothead Andrew Sullivan and a number of Palin-deranged Alaska bloggers, that Trig is not Sarah Palin’s son but actually her grandchild, is a reporter for the online left-wing magazine Salon. But stranger things have happened, and Justin Elliott is one of those few progressive journalists who seems to have maintained his intellectual and honesty and journalist integrity. Make no mistake, Elliot has a consistent record of criticizing Gov. Palin, but he’s investigated the Trig conspiracy theory and found compelling evidence that there is no truth to it. Here are some excerpts from the report of his investigation, which was published Friday at Salon’s War Room blog:

In light of the recent attention this subject has received and the considerable passion it has stirred, Salon embarked last week on an investigation of the circumstances surrounding Trig’s birth. The exhaustive review of available evidence that we conducted, along with new interviews with multiple eyewitnesses who interacted with a pregnant Sarah Palin up-close in early 2008 — most of whom had never spoken publicly about the matter before — has produced one clear conclusion: Sarah Palin is, indeed, Trig’s mother and there is no reason to suspect any kind of a coverup.

We’ve learned, for instance, that an Associated Press reporter in Alaska who was covering Palin during her pregnancy in early 2008 (before she became a national figure) thoroughly investigated rumors that the pregnancy was a hoax. The reporter directly questioned Palin about the matter in a private meeting in her Juneau office before she gave birth. Gov. Palin responded by voluntarily lifting her outer layer of clothing, offering a clear look at her round belly. The reporter quickly concluded that there was no truth to the rumors and never wrote about them.

So why dive into this old conspiracy theory now?

After all, there’s a strong argument to be made that politicians’ private lives should not be subject to investigation unless there is suspicion of hypocrisy (e.g., Larry Craig) or some public policy implication (e.g., Mark Sanford). As Atrios put it, “if Trig was sired by Lucifer and birthed from a hippopotamus it’s really none of our business.” Sullivan has claimed that the birth of Trig, a baby with Down syndrome, played a key role in Palin being chosen for the GOP’s 2008 ticket, because it solidified her pro-life credentials. But the idea that this had anything to do with John McCain’s decision to tap Palin is easily debunked.

[…]

You can believe that Palin was wearing a pregnancy suit and Hollywood-quality makeup for weeks, all before she had a national profile. You can believe that she fooled all of those journalists with her pregnancy costume, including the AP reporter who literally inspected Palin’s belly in her office. You can believe that Palin, and her entire family, and her doctor, and her disgruntled former aide Frank Bailey, have been lying to the press in a tightly organized and mind-bogglingly elaborate conspiracy. You can believe that the medical workers who were involved in Trig’s delivery were paid off or have simply kept inexplicably quiet about the hoax. You can believe that Bristol Palin gave birth to Trig and then had another child just eight months later.

Or you can believe that Trig is Sarah Palin’s son.

Will the evidence detailed by Elliot in the course of his investigation convince Sullivan and the deranged Alaskans that they have been barking up the wrong tree lo these many months? We doubt it. Their all-consuming hatred of Sarah Palin is a berserker bullet train which long ago left the station. Not even logic and reason can bring it back, because it has gone well off the tracks.

Stacy McCain: Lefty Trig troofer prof’s ‘paper’ is all insinuation

Posted by joshpainter on April 16, 2011

Foam-at-the-mouth moonbats are dancing in the streets because an ultra left wing Journalism professor has written a paper which they are touting as lending “credibility” to support their insane conspiracy theory that Trig is not Gov. Palin’s son. Investigative reporter Stacy McCain has taken a look at the prog prof’s paper and found that it is full of insinuation and totally lacking in any real tests of the theory, as opposed to what is expected of scholarly research. Stacy reports:

Dr. Bradford Scharlott is an associate professor of communications at the University of Northern Kentucky, who has called attention to himself by publishing a 29-page “academic” treatise, the essence of which is an allegation that Todd Palin is a liar:

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…

Scharlott’s article walks through all the evidence supporting the theory, including the photos of Palin in what is said to have been a late-stage pregnancy, the leisurely 20-hour trip home that Palin took after she supposedly went into labor in Texas, the refusal of the hospital where Trig was supposedly born to even confirm that he was born there (let alone who was the mother), strange statements from Palin’s doctor and the McCain campaign, and so on.

As I say, I have met Todd Palin, seen Trig scamper around the living room of the Palin family’s lakefront home in Wasilla, and watched Todd read a storybook to the adorable little tyke. Todd just rolled his eyes in disgust at my cautiously indirect mention of the “Trig Truther” nonsense, but I’d double-dog dare any of those fools to try presenting the so-called “evidence” for their lunatic theory while Todd Palin was in the room.

Yet I didn’t need to meet Todd and Trig to recognize Trig-Trutherism as lunacy.

[…]

Jesse “Gryphen” Griffin claims that he corresponded with Scharlott for two months, and that Scharlott shared an advance draft of this paper with him. This indicates that Scharlott is knee-deep into the festering swamp of Palin Derangement Syndrome.

Stacy has learned that Scharlott’s paper is being shopped by a publicist. Serious scholars and faculty submit their papers to legitimate academic journals where they are subjected to rigorous peer review. They don’t hire publicists to shop their stuff. Just another indication that this joke of a college professor cannot be taken seriously by anyone but the deranged.
