Palin's Medical Records

More

Surprise! Despite Palin's gaffe to Brian Williams last night, the records will not be released any time soon. Or rather:

“When medical information related to Governor Palin’s health is ready to be released we will make that information available.”

"Related" to her health?

The records were part of the vetting process. There is absolutely no reason why they couldn't be released immediately or why Palin's obstetrician, Catherine Baldwin-Jones, could not be allowed to talk to reporters about the evidentiary facts of Palin's controversial story of her last pregnancy. And yet we get this crap:

Comella declined to give any more information about when the records might be released or whether there were any particular issues holding up their release.

The truth, of course, is that the campaign has already refused to release any medical records, let alone any actual confirmation of the Down Syndrome pregnancy. Such confirmation will not, I bet, be provided before the election. Or ever. But I would be delighted to be proven wrong.

Or maybe this is a moment to holler back at Mark Salter's accusation that I have lost my "fucking mind."

Two words, Salter: prove it. Why not?
