It's true, folks.  

Confused conservative Andrew Sullivan has just taken Sarah Palin's "BabyGate" mainstream:

Things That Make You Go Hmmm

Questions for the McCain-Palin campaign:

   Where has Bristol Palin (far right, holding Trig, with a ring on her wedding finger) been for the past year? Has she been attending high school? Or was she absent because of infectious mononucleosis for between five and eight months, as is now being reported on the Internet?

   Why would a 43 year old woman, on her fifth pregnancy, with a Down Syndrome child, after her amniotic fluid has started to leak, not go to the nearest hospital immediately, even if she was in Texas for a speech?

   Why would she not only not go to the hospital in Texas, but take an eight-hour plane flight to Seattle and then Anchorage?

   Why would she choose to deliver the baby not in the nearest major facility in Anchorage but at a much smaller hospital near her home-town?

   Why did the flight attendants on the trip home say she bore no signs of being pregnant?...

So Andrew Sullivan says it's reasonable to ask these questions.

If this breaks into the MSM, it's all but over folks.  Sarah Palin will never be the same, whether it's true or not.

This isn't just some unseemly DKos nut now...  it's a widely read pundit.

Read it and weep, Karl.  (Rove, that is.;)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
