Sarah Palin Talking Nonsense on Medical Records

She’s speaking to reporters in an attempt to clear her name. Here’s one statement she made Sunday, about the gossip that swirled around her candidacy:

“Some of the goofy things, like who was Trig’s mom. Well, I’m Trig’s mom, and do you want to see my medical records to prove that?”

Um, yes. We asked for your medical reports repeatedly. Andrew Sullivan talked about little else for a while. You refused. Your campaign stonewalled. And ultimately all you did was pass around a letter from your doctor asserting you were in good health the day before the election. Are you serious right now?


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.
