Secret's Out: Gov Palin is Pregnant
The Anchorage Daily News ^ | March 6, 2008 | Wesley Loy

Posted on 03/06/2008 1:06:29 PM PST by redpoll

JUNEAU -- Gov. Sarah Palin shocked and awed just about everybody around the Capitol on Wednesday when she announced she's expecting her fifth child.

The governor, who recently turned 44, told a handful of reporters as she was leaving work to expect a new member of the first family, then headed to a reception at the Baranof Hotel to feast on king crab.

Palin said she's already about seven months along, with the baby due to arrive in mid-May.

That the pregnancy is so advanced astonished all who heard the news. The governor, a runner who's always been trim, simply doesn't look pregnant.

So I guess there are still some areas of the state where drilling is permitted.

Just brushy swampland.

Which, after development, is apparently accessible to children.

Congrats to mom, dad & en route bundle o' joy!

From the article: Palin said she's already about seven months along, with the baby due to arrive in mid-May.

Sorry, but maybe she can get started on number 6 before the convention. :-)

Good for her, I can't believe no one knew until she was 7 months along though, she just isn't that big to hide it that far along I would think.

Wow. This lady deserves more respect. She is my first choice for McCain’s VP. Being in the family way only enhances her as a candidate. Please, Dear God, let McCain see it the same way.

I think Jane Swift had a baby when she was acting gov of MA several years ago. But Gov Palin will be the first elected governor to give birth. If that makes a difference. ;)

Is no one but me sad that this baby will be raised by day care? As governor she will have very little time for it.

Well Willy Jeff was the first elected President to be impeached.

Some milestones may need an astrisk.

Another example would be that B. Hussein, if elected, would be the first "half Kenyan" to be elected. Or the first half White to be elected. Or the first "choclate President" as the mayor of New Orleans might say.

Reminds me of an old joke (ladies, move along to the next post, please):

Q: What's the good thing about having a woman for president?

A: We wouldn't have to pay her as much.

He also recently competed in a long-distance cross-state snowmobile race, and finished (I think) fourth despite breaking his arm along the way.

Wait, wait, wait.

In today's politically correct world, aren't the guys "pregnant" too when their wives are pregnant? Haven't you heard people say "we're expecting"?

That being the new way of the world, hasn't there been a male governor somewhere that "gave birth"?

So I guess there are still some areas of the state where drilling is permitted.

In that area where the drilling occurred, the democrats will soon be investigating for pollution.

And how large was that area for drilling?

"Palin said she's not aiming to take any time off from her job as governor... She said when she had Piper -- Palin was mayor of Wasilla at the time -- the baby was born on a Monday and she returned to the office on Tuesday."

"To any critics who say a woman can't think and work and carry a baby at the same time, I'd just like to escort that Neanderthal back to the cave," Palin said.

Wow, what a woman...and a God-fearing Republican, to boot! Where do I sign up?
