The blogosphere is abuzz with questions about Trig, the 4 month-old baby of McCain VP's running-mate Sarah Palin. The allegations boil down to this: Trig isn't Palin's baby. It is claimed that the baby belongs her sixteen year old daughter, Bristol.
This post at Daily Kos looks at the evidence (summary of the evidence posted here). Palin reportedly boarded a plane bound for Alaska even though she was already in labor.
If the allegation is true, how can Palin possibly stay on the McCain ticket? After all, the campaign has tried to sell Palin as a heroic woman of principle who made the "hard choice" to go through with the pregnancy, even knowing the child would have Downs Syndrome. What if it was, in fact -- all the while -- her sixteen-year-old daughter who "chose" to have the baby? On the other hand, supposing the allegations are false, is Palin in any position to put her country first?
UPDATE: I have put together a comprehensive and factual Sarah Palin timeline. It is color-coded by scandal, and getting longer by the day.
