It's no longer funny. We need to see Governor Palin's medical records.

On October 22nd, Palin finally, reluctantly agreed. On October 26th, Palin spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt unequivocally stated the information would be released early that week.

It didn't happen. And it's not going to happen.

We're not going to learn anything until after the election, at which point the whole issue will be irrelevant.

How is she getting away with this?

Is Andrew Sullivan the only sane journalist left? Can anyone honestly explain why we haven't seen Trig Palin's birth records? Why are we letting ourselves be intimidated? The maternity of the infant is, at best, questionable. We have demonstrable evidence of numerous Palin lies. We know her daughter is sexually active. What about this story is unreasonable?

Sullivan writes:

Why not kill this rumor with Palin’s medical records? A 43 year old woman’s pregnancy with a Downs Syndrome child would have been intensely monitored, and the records must be a mile long.

He's absolutely right. The lack of evidence and bizarre, unkept promises of disclosure are becoming increasingly damning.

Why are we lying down??

UPDATE:**

To those who think this is the wrong way to go to get Obama elected -- I see your point. You may be right.

To those who think if true, this story doesn't matter -- No. This would be a huge, bizarre cover-up of Nixonian proportions. Palin would be immediately disqualified from all public service. And there has been no proof offered to dispute the "crazy" theory.

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.
