Ok- so I’m just going to throw this out there because it’s the first thing I thought when I saw the Palin family photo: Sarah Palin doesn’t look pregnant- but her daughter kind of does.

I have absolutely no proof of this. None whatsoever. But I did do a little research and found out I’m not the first person to come up with this theory.

Let’s start with the basics of my theory:

1. Sarah is 44 years old- pretty unlikely that she’d just get pregnant naturally.

2. She announced her pregnancy at 7 MONTHS and the general consensus was that Palin “simply doesn’t look pregnant.”

3. After supposedly going into labor in Texas, Sarah stuck around for awhile to give a speech and eventually hopped on a plane back to Alaska to give birth. When asked why the airline employees actually let her on the plane, she said: “I wasn’t showing much so they didn’t know.”

Now I don’t know about you, but personally I think I’d know if a woman was seven months pregnant- and I’m certain I’d know it at nine months – especially someone as fit and trim as Sarah Palin.

Also – there is NO WAY IN HELL any doctor is going to ok air travel for a 44 year old pregnant woman- especially one carrying a baby with down syndrome.

Now let me be clear: I don’t care if she wants to raise her daughter’s son. It’s actually a pretty honorable thing to do.

However, if it turns out she lied about it being her kid, then she is done. McCain is going to need a new running mate.
