IT'S PIPER'S TURN NEXT!  7:29 pm December 18, 2008

by Jim Newell

  • OH RIGHT, SHE WAS PREGNANT OR SOMETHING: Hey remember Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, and how she got herself pregnant to distract attention from a DailyKos diarist-generated scandal about Trig actually being Bristol’s secret “other” baby which led Andrew Sullivan to DEMAND PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE of Trig popping out of Sarah Palin’s vag, everyday, until… oh, he’s still doing that… and then Rudy Giuliani called the liberal media sexist for this at a political convention while Kathryn Jean Lopez prayed for her own secret “other” Down Syndrome bastard child to arrive via stork? You do! Well, Bristol Palin’s baby is supposedly due on Saturday, according to a hilarious interview with Bristol’s grandfather, Chuck Heath, on the website “” []

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


Texan Bulldoggette December 18, 2008 at 7:34 pm

“I hope he’s a normal, happy, healthy kid.” Uh oh, sounds like someone was a little disappointed with Trig.

Borat December 18, 2008 at 7:35 pm

So is Trig Bristol’s or not. By the way, where are they keeping the lil’ tyke holed up these days?

ManchuCandidate December 18, 2008 at 7:36 pm

I wonder how many of the gifts were “paid” for by the RNC?

Considering I’d like to see someone send the kid an “I’m with Stupid” T-shirt so that will be worn and seen when grandma Sarah shows the new kid off.

Vanity Smurf December 18, 2008 at 7:36 pm

How long until Granny Palin gets herself busted with a hockey player from Willow’s class in the greatest cougar scandal of all time?

Yeah, yeah. Is one of the Gawker properties? I just thought it could have cool banner ads from fleshbot or something. Some interesting click-thrus there. Which reminds me, where’s Campbell?

Anyway, per the Liberal MSM, Paul Weyrich shuffled off this mortal coil today. Mourn as you see fit.

[re=202651]DangerousLiberal[/re]: Dang. That’s one creepy picture. My favourite quote:

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said Weyrich ”didn’t over-intellectualize about Christians ‘jumping into the fray.’ He recognized early that the fray had jumped onto us.”

Perkins, of course, has never over-intellectualised anything, ever.

[re=202671]smellyal8r[/re]: The wedding is next summer. Which is like saying “a week from Tuesday” or “I’ll see ya later.”

That was a vile interview. Levi Johnston was completely left out of the narrative. Typical liberal stance: ignore the father because unmarried fathers don’t matter. They got no rights.

Oh Levi, why don’t they care about you? Isn’t Levi Jnr yours too? Are you living under an assumed name in Saskatoon, Levi? Levi???

dilhavarti December 18, 2008 at 9:24 pm

I think it’s time the dialogue get elevated above the successful coverup of Bristol’s retarded baby lateral pass to her “great Mom”.

I have a serious question. Shouldn’t there be a gay Palin? Statistically it seems odd there’s no screaming drag-queen aunt or raging bull-dagger biker-dude uncle. Discuss.

[re=202763]Scarab[/re]: In keeping with the Palin tradition, I think they should name the kid after where he was conceived. Of course, since they’re teenagers, they’ll probably have to give him like seven names just to cover their bases. He’ll end up being named something like Aerostar Porchswing Lockerroom Tanningbooth Sofa Diningroomtable Palin.

To what quality or possession of the Palins was this person referring? If the whole family thing is true, it is so good that Hillary is NOT the VP-elect because we would also have been voting for Roger Clinton.
[re=202773]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I guess that since conception would have been March in Alaska, Behindthebushes Palin or Inthewoods Palin is unlikely. As is Porchswing, really. Unless they have heated porch swings in Alaska and why not, really? Also.

[re=202799]Tarruck Nuhts[/re]: You are making several dubious assumptions:

(1) that Trig and the Obama girls will grow up;

(2) that there will be a 2040, which assumes that we will not be in some Dark Age where we forget how to find our asses with a flashlight,

(3) that we will still have elections in 2040, which presupposes that we will not be living in a barbarian state of war of all against all, where people all speak with Australian accents, sport tattoos and spike hairdos and chase each other around in enormous gasoline propelled stylized wrecks.
