I agree with your take, but you didn't address the larger point -- if there really is nothing to the faked pregnancy idea, then by necessity the truly bizarre plane flight while in labor with the 5th and definitely most high-risk pregnancy must be true. That speaks volumes about both her judgment and the sincerity of her "pro-life" credentials, that she would risk a baby like that. This is relevant on a variety of levels, not the least of which being that her "pro-life" credentials had everything to do with why she was picked and her continued appeal to the conservative base.

I understand this point, but I'd still rather let the issue go. Palin's unfitness for office has been demonstrated again and again. The tale of Palin's pregnancy tells us nothing we didn't know already.
