    "Stupid Conspiracies"

    Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the 2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and voters had a right to ask... which they have repeatedly. But at no point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews – have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or suggested that he was not born in the United States.

      that Obama himself and his campaign left alone Palin and her kids. It was just the "libural" media that picked on her and her kids.

      So no Sarah, it is not fair to ask if Obama is an American Citizen. He has already proved it and has never criticized or attacked your personal life, despite how easy it could be for him to.

      You know make her show Trigs BC. I never understood that conspiracy, a woman in her middle forties has a downs child, seems reasonable.
      Also some woman just don't show until late in pregnancy. Someone obviosly got to her  pretty fast to get her to backtrack. No one is going to take a birther as a serious candidate.

        fifth child.  Remember too that most of us only knew her from when The Mack Daddy picked her.  Folks in Alaska have had the dubious honor for much longer.  A lot of the doubt originated with them.

    •  "many on the left"? like who? name names (0+ / 0-)

      which democratic congresspeople?

      which liberal columnists or authors?

      which nationally syndicated radio show hosts?

      the only significant member of the political class to doubt her pregnancy was Andrew Sullivan, who is not even on the left.
