Well here you have it, the final word on Sarah Palin’s pregnancy and birthing from renowned obstetrics journal the New York Times. The biggest shocker: Trig Paxon Van Palin really was given that name because it sounded like “Van Halen.” THAT IS NOT EVEN A JOKE, THAT IS AN ACTUAL FACT IN THIS JOURNALISTIC ARTICLE. How can America trust Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat away from the presidency when she names her youngest child after an 80s hard rock band?
There are still many weirdnesses and head-scratchers to this story, such as the part where she “disguised” her pregnancy with uh COLORFUL SCARVES. Plus the alarming million-year trek back to Alaska from Texas and and and. Whatever, just look at the comments to the story, for larfs.
