Exploring the Depths of Indecency

Snowball Snookie is at it again, opening up her rancid piehole:

With Hillary Clinton becoming a grandmother, Sarah Palin argued the former secretary of state will likely reconsider her position on abortion rights.

“Just knowing that her daughter Chelsea is pregnant, with a baby–It’s a real baby!–It’s not some disposable something, and I know that’s going to be controversial,” Palin said in an interview set to air Wednesday on “Extra.”

Clinton, who’s thinking about running for president again in 2016, has said she supports efforts to prevent unwanted pregnancies and abortions, but she also defends a woman’s right to choose.

I’m sure Hillary, who has walked around with a vagina her entire life and has a grown ass kid, was pretty clear on the concept of where babies come from, you nutjob.

    Wait, so Snowball Snooki thinks that Hillary considered Chelsea to be disposable? If that’s the case, why would Hills change her mind just because it’s a grandchild and not her own child?

    Also, I can’t be the only one creeped out by the notion that a mother would somehow think she’s allowed to control her grown child’s actions and medical decisions. I think Palin is revealing a little too much about herself here, as usual.

    Um, what else would she be pregnant with? The way Palin talks drives me insane. It’s all word salad and jumbles and she just pulls some thoughts together and spews forth.

    Also, reminds me of the image I see all the time of a woman holding up a sign that says “If Lilly Potter had an abortion, then who would stop Voldemort?” Reply: Neville Longbottom, jesus christ, read the books.”

    When I heard the whole crazy story Snowbilly travelling to Texas for that speech during her ninth month of her high risk pregnancy and then travelling back to Alaska without even going to a doc in Texas or Seattle(where I assume they have better facilities than Alaska), I figured she was trying to intentionally lose the baby. I’ve known several pregnant women in my time and have yet to find somebody who traveled during her ninth month and we are not even talking about high risk pregnancies. Just go away, Sarah, you methhead. Nobody wants to listen to you anymore. Go away before you embarrass yourself to the point that you’ll have to built a cabin way far in the woods so that nobody can find you.

    Violet says:

    @mai naem: It’s worse than that. According to Sarah Palin, in her ninth month of pregnancy she flew to Texas from Alaska for a Governor’s conference. She claims that her water broke while she was in Texas. Keep in mind she’s 42 and pregnant with a Down’s Syndrome child (she and Todd and her doctor knew about the DS). She claims she phoned her doctor, who told her to get on a plane and come home to Alaska. No doctor would do this, but this is what Palin says happened.

    Instead of going to a hospital in Dallas she flies from Dallas to Seattle with a layover then Seattle to Anchorage. Instead of going to a hospital in either Dallas, Seattle or Anchorage, this 42 year old woman whose water has broken lands in Anchorage and drives an hour to Wasilla to deliver the baby.

    It’s malpractice if her doctor told her to do anything but go to the hospital in Dallas. It’s child endangerment or worse if she did anything but go to a hospital in Dallas. Or she lied about what happened. There is no other option.

    Sarah Palin made a point of saying that when she found out she was pregnant with Trig (her youngest) she didn’t tell anyone at first, even her husband. She thought about it, albeit briefly, and decided to parent. It was an empowering decision she made to enter into parenting knowing the challenges she and her family would face. This is pro-choice in action.

    What makes me crazy is that she is not asked why she would deny women the opportunity to make the same choice she made for herself.

    Yes! Thank you! I always thought that Andrew Sullivan was an absolute moron for concocting elaborate conspiracy theories about how Trig wasn’t really Palin’s child when the truth was both obvious and pitiful: she knew she was having a Downs Syndrome child but, due to some combination of religious fervor and political calculation, couldn’t have the abortion she secretly wanted, so she actively tried to force a miscarriage, even at the risk of her own life.

    @mai naem: I know that some don’t like to dwell on this, since Sully latched on to this crazy story to display his gay male disdain for those vile females, but the story of Palin’s last pregnancy always bothered me as being just so illogical. I think you’re on to something with the desire to have a “politically correct” and sympathy educing miscarriage to solve her baby problem without the stigma of an abortion, which is what she really wanted, as actually going through with it would make her political life much more complicated on a personal level. Let’s face it…a special needs baby, especially when you don’t have truckloads of money for nannies and such, is pretty inconvenient. Sarah is all about convenience, and actually quit the governorship when it became inconvenient to her.

    @Citizen Alan: If you’re going to have an abortion it’s a lot easier to do it earlier in the pregnancy. She could have done that without anyone knowing. Going to the conference in Texas in the ninth month of her pregnancy to force a miscarriage is kind of stupid. At that point the baby is viable and if she went into labor a hospital probably could have saved it.

    The airline she flew claims they didn’t know she was pregnant. They would not have allowed a woman in her ninth month of pregnancy to fly. It’s a major liability for them. No doctor would approve of that flight either.

    Amir Khalid says:

    @SatanicPanic:
    Sarah Palin is reliably stupid, disingenuous and/or hypocritical; I reckon that’s always fair game. She’s being all three of these when she speculates that Chelsea’s pregnancy, that of a happily married woman who very much wants the child, might compel Hillary to rethink her position on abortions for women in other circumstances.

    But has the Juicitariat crossed the line this time, into attacking her right to speak? I don’t think it crosses the line to call her ill-qualified to speak, and certainly wrong this time around. I like to think that this crowd is not too partisan to acknowledge Sarah Palin being right about something, should that ever happen.

She could have been having Braxton Hicks but I don’t think the rest is true. In my opinion, it was an embellishment gone wrong. I will say that it was irresponsible just to travel that late in her pregnancy and I’m surprised she was cleared to travel–if she was.

    One of Sarah’s perpetual problems is her first instinct when reacting to something adverse is to concoct a lie to explain it away.

    She did this when she was confronted by Todd’s membership in an Alaskan separatist party, and the McCain people told her they would not fabricate a story to explain it away, because the membership was real and not some “dirty trick” djinned up by Sarah’s political enemies. They were not going to allow her to commit an unforced error that was so easy to detect that even the lazy bastards of the MSM couldn’t overlook it.

    @Citizen_X: By “allow” I meant that Sarah Palin claims her doctor said it was okay for her to fly. So she “allowed” her to fly. Yes, ultimately no one can keep her from doing what she wants. But airlines can refuse to allow a pregnant woman to board if they deem it to be risky. Some airlines require a note from a doctor for a woman in the last month of her pregnancy to fly.

    @SiubhanDuinne: There was speculation about this issue. Todd’s involvement in the Alaskan separatist movement may have played some role in that too. If that’s what she wanted, that’s fine. Then don’t get on the damn plane. That woman is reckless, stupid and a danger to others.

    there’s some disparaging term for a “non-native” Alaskan, one not born there,

    Anyone who has ever had multiple pregnancies will tell you Sarah’s story is very difficult to believe. None of it can be true.

    Also, yes some people do have children out of wedlock. It does not mean the mother is a tramp. I know a few of those mothers who have done an excellent job as a single parent.

    @Violet: I forgot about the final ride from Anchorage. I’ve talked to several women who’ve had kids about my theory and before I explain my theory I always ask them “Would you have traveled during your ninth month and would you have traveled if you were having problems during the pregnancy?” and every single one of them are essentially “hell,no.”

    BTW, I thought that Snowbilly being preggers during her first wedding was common knowledge. I didn’t think there was any big controversy about that.

    @mai naem: Sarah won’t admit she was pregnant during her first wedding. She also won’t discuss the fact that her first child looks like the spitting image of Sarah’s previous boyfriend. The one who conveniently died in an airplane accident a short time later. He doesn’t look much like Todd.

    @Villago Delenda Est: in their morality it’s less of a sin to “get carried away by the moment” than it is to deliberately plan to have premarital sex. And the rest of us all pay the price for that twisted logic.

    @Violet:

    Todd’s involvement in the Alaskan separatist movement may have played some role in that too.

    Evidence-less speculation (“It would be irresponsible not to speculate”) suggests another possibility, that she may have promised Todd that the kid would be a native-born Alaskan, to maintain his (conditional) forgiveness for some transgression on her part. None of these scenarios make much sense though.

    @Violet:

    I don’t know how it’s possible that the airline didn’t notice she was pregnant. When you’re on your fifth pregnancy, when you’re 3 months along you look like you’re six months along, and when you’re nine months along you look like you’re 3 months overdue. Plus, being in labor is kinda attention-grabbing, no?

    @mai naem:

    When I heard the whole crazy story Snowbilly travelling to Texas for that speech during her ninth month of her high risk pregnancy and then travelling back to Alaska without even going to a doc in Texas or Seattle(where I assume they have better facilities than Alaska), I figured she was trying to intentionally lose the baby.

    And you aren’t the only one.
    I and several of my friends all thought the same thing (they all were nurses). They don’t believe in abortion, but if a baby tragically doesn’t survive birth, a baby they already knew had Downs, well… god’s will and all that.

    @chopper: And now you’re down the rabbit hole of “was she really pregnant”? Her stories and timelines simply don’t add up. Plenty of craziness in that story.

    Don’t recall whether that young woman ended up playing at Tennessee.

    It was Michelle Marciniak, and she did.

    @Amir Khalid:

    I like to think that this crowd is not too partisan to acknowledge Sarah Palin being right about something, should that ever happen.

    I’m waiting for confirmation, but I would be willing to admit that Sarah Palin is right about Chelsea Clinton being pregnant.
