Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret--nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him. That way, she said, Bristol and I didn't have to worry about anything. Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging--she wouldn't give up. She would say, "So, are you gonna let me adopt him?" We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn't want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/02/levi-johnston-palin-wante_n_274986.html?page=6&show_comment_id=30164024#comment_30164024
Predictably, this has brought back the nagging question: Who is Tripp's mother? Or, is it Trick ... I am sorry, I find it hard to keep Trick/Trip/Track/Trap and Trig staight ...
Conspiracies aside though, the events surrounding the birth of Sarah's 'fifth child' have always left me wondering: How responsible is this woman??
I don't know who that baby's mother is, but I do know this. Sarah's story needs to be examined closely to see if it can bear close scrutiny.
Assuming Sarah's story is true ... then these are legitimate questions and observations on who Sarah Palin is.
Did she lie to the airline about how far along her pregnancy was when she left for Dallas?
Sarah says her water had broken, before she left Dallas; which is the beginning of labour. Leaving aside the risk to her baby ....If we are to believe her stoy, then these facts are irrefutable:
1- Sarah misled the airline, in order to bypass airline rules/policy
2- Sarah put her high-rish child at risk
3- Sarah put all other passengers at risk too, since her condition migh have caused the planes to be diverted somewhere between Dallas and Seattle OR Seattle and Anchorage
4- Sarah did not mind the fact that the other passengers might have been inconvenienced by her actions. A diversion would have caused some passengers to be late for meetings/weddings/funerals etc ..... but Sarah chose HER needs over the needs of other passengers ..
HOWEVER .. if Sarah was NOT going back to Alaska to give birth, but rather going back to Alaska to be there for the birth ... none of those matter... (wink)
EITHER WAY .. Sarah was reckless, selfish and unethical in this whole birth story. There are legitimate reasons to question her judgement to be sure.
DID SARAH reveal the Amazing Adventure of Trick's Birth thinking it would make her appear tough and fearless? If so, it backfired on her, because it does no such thing. If her story is true ... she put her child's life in danger. That is important to remember.
