I Have Arrived

Ah ha! Caught in the act!

During a thread on the immaturity of the Alaskan bloggers the other night over at C4P, I made the following comments:
The only thing that really ticks me off about the Underworld is their constant obsession with Trig not wearing socks.

The people who would most likely advocate aborting a down syndrome child are frantic over his lack of socks.

Note to the insane: Nobody's going to die from bare feet! How on earth did my barefoot farmer ancestors manage to survive? Aahhhhhh!

My main beef is that it's none of their freaking business. Who made them the judge and jury over motherhood? This from the same people who tolerate scumbaggery of all other kinds.
Well, guess what? That caused the folks at Palingates (the same people obsessing over Palin taking a jet on her "bus" tour. The gall! She's deceiving the American people!) to put up a post to rebut me. Check it out:
Trig, Sarah Palin's prop -

Trig Palin was used as a prop by his "mother" during the vice presidential campaign, after the campaign and more recently during the "Going Rogue" book tour.

Commenters on liberal blogs have been concerned about the lack of proper attire for Trig when we observed that everybody else was nice and toasty in bad weather but Trig had no socks, no shoes and no hat.

Of course the Palinbots (C4P, who else?) immediately defended Sarah Palin's parenting skills:

"The only thing that really ticks me off about the Underworld is their constant obsession with Trig not wearing socks.

"The people who would most likely advocate aborting a down syndrome child are frantic over his lack of socks.

"Note to the insane: Nobody's going to die from bare feet! How on earth did my barefoot farmer ancestors manage to survive? Aahhhhhh!

"My main beef is that it's none of their freaking business. Who made them the judge and jury over motherhood? This from the same people who tolerate scumbaggery of all other kinds."

No, we don't advocate aborting children with Down Syndrome:

What it is, is that "they" cannot grasp that pro-choice does not mean pro-abortion. I think I missed the band of pro-choice people "advocating" for abortions. I am pro-choice, but did not have the extra tests done in my pregnancies that look for DS, even though I was the same age as Sarah during our (OK, my) last pregnancy. Why? Because if the baby were to have DS, I would not have aborted him, so why take the extra risk? I'm pro-choice. That means I believe it's NOT MY DECISION what other women do.

We don't like to see Trig dragged out of the bus at 11:45 pm to be paraded to the crowds when the temperature is 41 degrees. We worry about early intervention and appropriate therapies that would give Trig the best chance of an independent life later on. We wonder why Trig is often photographed without his glasses and hearing aids. We don't think it's a good idea for a vulnerable child to be passed from person to person and exposed to germs during the flu season. We worry about the number of air miles Trig is accumulating at such a tender age when he's more succeptible to the adverse effects of high altitudes. We are puzzled about his inability to eat solids.

It might be none of our freaking business, but we didn't make Trig into an object of worship and we wouldn't choose to have him so exposed for the sake of selling some books. Sarah Palin's words, from "Going Rogue":

"Please don’t let anything happen to this baby.

"It occurred to me, once and for all. I’m so in love with this child, please God, protect him! After all my doubts and fears, I had fallen in love with this precious child. The worst thing in the world would be that I would lose him. God knew what He was doing."

Does God still know what he's doing? Is the care of Trig to be left to God alone or is his "mother" going to do her bit?

We know Sarah Palin pays close attention to the blogs. If we're in any way instrumental in ensuring that Trig receives the care he deserves so she can deflect criticism, our job is done.

But I'm not holding my breath...
No socks! Call Child Protective Services!

Cracks me up. If Trig were constantly photographed with his glasses, these are the people who would be starting the rumors that she only puts them on Trig for the cameras - when the cameras are off, she viciously rips the glasses off of her infant and laughs maniacally while forcing him to look at things without lenses!

They lose their case in the first sentence: "Mother." (Quotation marks) Trig Truthers, extraordinaire.

It's funny on one hand; on the other it's seriously insulting. Who do these people think they are? I stand by my original statement - It's none of their freaking business.

No, I did not include a link. They don't need any more traffic.

I don't have any kids, but I've done my fair share of baby-sitting and I can tell you this - kids are pretty resilient. Walking around with bare feet is not going to be their death knell (try keeping their socks on!) and they have survived much worse than having their cute little chubby cheeks pinched by relatives. I was a kid once myself, and I endangered my own life unwittingly countless times. Give me a break.

Now, for the record, I was not actually talking about Palingates, but the anti-Palin crowd in general. It makes me sick the way these people pretend to be so concerned for Trig. I didn't take the time to research the positions of the authors of every single blog, I was just popping off out of my frustration. The anti-Palin blogs tend to be liberal, which are pro-choice (pro-abortion, despite their protestations to that label), and the vast majority of children diagnosed with down syndrome are killed before they have a chance to see the world. So, yes, I lumped them all in together.

Now I point out the obvious - These people are really this pathetic? They read the comments on another blog and felt the need to put up a post rebutting someone's comment?

Wow. Nothing better to do, I guess.

On the other hand, it's kinda cool to get the attention.

I actually have noticed that the anti-Palin blogs take screencaps off C4P and Palin's Facebook wall and post them on their sites. I'll admit, sometimes I pop off just to see if they'll post it. That was actually in the back of my mind when I wrote the Trig comments.

I laughed my butt off when I saw that they took the bait:)

[stupid] "We wonder why Trig is often photographed without his glasses and hearing aids." [/stupid]

These loons take stupidity to a whole new level. You put glasses and hearing aids on a babies head, and I guarantee that they will rip them off in an instant. As your picture shows Trig can't keep his hands off the socks on so good luck with stickin' stuff in his cute little ears!(LOL!)

And some of these weirdos claim to be parents? Maybe it's time we start our own truther sect, uffda. You know, its no coincidence that most of the PDS anklebiters are divorced. Projection thy name is Griffin/Moore/Devon/Biegel/Chatman!

Your picture, along with the Barbara Walters video, show that Trig is a very active and (clearly) hands on toddler. Just because he has DS these freaks treat him like he is made out of porcelain. Using his disability to attack his mother because they disagree with her politics is disgusting. They're lower than dirt.
