Read Sarah Palin’s Important Medical Fax!

by Sara K. Smith

WE INSIST ON STOOL SAMPLES, WHERE ARE THE STOOL SAMPLESWell, that’s it, people! After weeks of saying, “oh yeah, let us get those records together, all those detailed and important medical records, there are so many of them to compile,” Sarah Palin’s people pooped out this doozy last night: a two-page fax from a kindly community doctor who reveals that Sarah Palin is a healthy woman who exercises.

We get no exciting blood panels or discussions of lesions or topographical maps of her reproductive organs, alas.

To be fair (as they say in Journalistic Circles), Barack Obama’s doctor released a ONE-page “record” that grudgingly allowed as how Obama is a human with a pulse, so there is some precedent in this campaign for short, vague medical records. But then again, not nearly as much mystery and speculation surrounded Obama’s fifth pregnancy. (Barack Obama is a seahorse.)

A seahorse? That explains his uncanny ability to capture zooplankton using only his mouth.

ManchuCandidate November 4, 2008 at 10:16 am

Palin’s Head X-rays revealed nothing.

Correction: Barack Obama is a sea unicorn.

Can we get Maury to settle this? “Sarah Palin… you ARE the baby mama!”

Hey, what vandal added “and one pre-term delivery at 35 weeks gestation in 2008″ to this report? First someone pranks her, and now they’re tampering with her medical files!

Dave J. November 4, 2008 at 10:18 am

I love this because it is such an obvious FUCK YOU to Walnuts. She released it on election eve, way too late for it to actually matter, but just under the wire so that nobody in 2012 can say she didn’t release her records before the election.

PopeyesPipe November 4, 2008 at 10:20 am

I would love to crawl into Barry’s pouch. It’s filled with hope and amniotic fluid.

La Cieca November 4, 2008 at 10:20 am

“Please excuse Sarah from being indicted this week as she has cramps.”

lampadadog November 4, 2008 at 10:20 am

I am ready for the socialist seahorse overlord!

Fly-over Correspondent November 4, 2008 at 10:22 am

What? No mention of her abortion?

AngryBlakGuy November 4, 2008 at 10:23 am

…whatever happened to her 8 and half month pregnant (air quotes)“Pregnant” daughter? Haven’t seen her on stage lately have we?

tremendous November 4, 2008 at 10:23 am

so Joe the doctor is totes not in the tank? sad face.

SayItWithWookies November 4, 2008 at 10:24 am

If only ovaries were brains, she could’ve out-hoped Hopey.

TGY November 4, 2008 at 10:24 am

So, Sarah Palin is a woman. Cool.

tinybubbles November 4, 2008 at 10:25 am

I work in women’s health – the story of her last delivery would have cost me my license if I were her health care provider. Premature rupture of amniotic sac with high risk pregnancy of Down baby…no way she’s getting on a plane if she’s my pt…she’s going to the closest hospital with a NICU. That is just going to go unanswered I guess.

I’m surprised she released this information but not surprised at how vague it is…just like Barry, she’s really too young to warrant any kind of testing for weird diseases and such as.

So why the glasses? What’s wrong with her eyes? That’s what I want to know.

Tommy Says Soooo November 4, 2008 at 10:25 am

I am waiting for Joe the Plumber’s medical records and expect the news of heavy use of the douche.

guangho November 4, 2008 at 10:25 am

Well we know that spilling your seed without procreating is a SIN so I’m guessing the first dude only had sex five times in seventeen years. No wonder his idea of a competitive sport involves abusing wild wolves in the wintertime.

stew November 4, 2008 at 10:27 am

I still say investigate pregnancy #5–we’ll need the info for 2012 when she again rises from the tundra.

AngryBlakGuy November 4, 2008 at 10:28 am

[re=162887]TGY[/re]: …how hilarious would would it be if it turned out she had a sex change?!

In terms of kids, they would have to use something like that National Debt Clock to be totally accurate in real-time.

golliwog November 4, 2008 at 10:30 am

She is on ‘no routine prescription medications’…..yet.

SayItWithWookies November 4, 2008 at 10:30 am

Anyone notice the doctor’s clinic is on Piper Street. So, Sarah and Todd — couldn’t even drive around the corner, huh?

MoodProcessor November 4, 2008 at 10:31 am

I’m waiting for the topographical map of her cerebrum. I bet it’s all one color.

That, and verified reports of her superfluous third nipple.

Cape Clod November 4, 2008 at 10:32 am

[re=162891]tinybubbles[/re]: They are corrective lenses. The only allow her to see a world where she is popular and right all the time.

freakishlystrong November 4, 2008 at 10:33 am

[re=162891]tinybubbles[/re]: It’s not her eyes that are fucked up, it’s her world view…the glasses help her see ignorant better…

Darehead November 4, 2008 at 10:33 am

Wait, she’s been her community whore-gun-izer doc since 1991? Sarah had plenny of opportunities to get herpes before that.
Da Killa’ Godzilla-Atiilla from Wasilla ain’t vanilla. Ya know.

Good health, except for that Asinine Stupidity Syndrome (ASS).

Josh Fruhlinger November 4, 2008 at 10:48 am

“routine women’s health care” — John McCain and his air quotes taught me that this is liberal code for THE ABORTIONS.

shortsshortsshorts November 4, 2008 at 10:54 am

When asked for your medical records to be public, be sure that your doctor also simply states, “Ain’t dead yet, dammit.”

Fear of a Black Reagan November 4, 2008 at 10:55 am

Obama didn’t want to admit how he’s still sneakin’ smokes all the time. Michelle would whup his ass! That’s why he didn’t release full records.

Palin? My wife says it’s probably a VD test that’s holdin’ her back.

I can’t wait to find out that Trig is a rental.

superfecta November 4, 2008 at 11:07 am

[re=162891]tinybubbles[/re]: Ditto on every count. I’m also betting she’s had a miscarriage somewhere and since it’ll be technically recorded as ‘abortion’ they won’t release real records since it’ll freak out the fundies who don’t understand How Things Work.

tremendous November 4, 2008 at 11:09 am

[re=162910]MoodProcessor[/re]: hey, nothng wrong with a third nipple. so i heard.

GollyGeeWilly November 4, 2008 at 11:09 am

They didn’t mention anything about FOX news being stuck up her butt?
You can’t tell where she ends, and they begin. Nothing about the
stretched rectum (rectum? I destroyed ‘em!!)

tinybubbles November 4, 2008 at 11:21 am

[re=163005]superfecta[/re]: I was thinking that too, regarding a m/c.
She could have put a lot of talk to rest with this release, and the fact that she didn’t is telling.

everfade November 4, 2008 at 11:27 am

Can I take this moment to share a joke I heard today? Ok, I will anyhow!
What’s the difference between Sara Palin’s mouth and her vagina?

Only some of the shit that comes out of her vagina is retarded.

Anita Cocktail November 4, 2008 at 11:30 am

But is Andrew Sullivan satisfied?

gjdodger November 4, 2008 at 11:31 am

[re=162907]golliwog[/re]: Cindy McCain wasn’t on “routine prescription medications,” either. She took them only when she was, like, stressed out, or had a monkey on her back.

V572625694 November 4, 2008 at 11:59 am

[re=163085]Anita Cocktail[/re]: No woman could satisfy Andrew Sullivan.

Lionel Hutz Esq. November 4, 2008 at 12:46 pm

Wait, she goes to a clinic? Don’t you go to a clinic to treat your STDs or to get needles?

Mr Blifil November 4, 2008 at 1:50 pm

Pre-term delivery in 2008. Like how they snuck that in there? Um, yeah, I’m gonna have to see the results of the bloods on that one…

hobospacejungle November 4, 2008 at 2:15 pm

[re=162900]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: That would explain her lack of an ass in those flute-playing swimsuit photos from the Miss Alaska contest!

I’ve heard the plastic surgery/abortion/herpes predictions.

Yeah, maybe, but in the interest of jumping on all possible longshots early, here are some other wildcard goodies:

1. Chemical dependency. 5 colleges in 6 years?!? This also dovetails nicely into the abortion/herpes chalk bets.

2. Crazy pills. Maybe “maverick” is code for “xanax popper.” She is supposed to be the slightly less crazy person on the ticket. Maybe not so much?
