When you use words like conspiracy theory and tin-foil hats in conjunction with describing why you are not writing or talking about a potential story, you trigger a response in listeners, to wit: "Watch your step here, this is la-la land!" Both these accomplished ladies seemed to "pooh-pooh" any efforts to get to the bottom of the clearly impossible stories Mrs. Todd Palin has given concerning the birth of the child she calls her son, Trig.
Like I said, I can understand why someone would not want to touch a story that the "mainstream media" decided to let lay fallow. One only has to read the recently released e-mails from the Journolist group to find some sort of justification for this. Is the justification valid? I don't happen to think so, but then, that's me, and I have a day job. My future life plans do not depend on whether or not I blog about the right topics, or the safe topics, or the approved topics. Running for political office is not in my future. Cozying up to Marcos Moulitsas or any other notable in the Democratic Party is not one of my goals.
Let's face it. though. Labels have meaning to people. Label something a conspiracy theory and red flags shoot up everywhere. BEWARE, BEWARE!
So fine, don't touch the story, but don't label it in such a way that I, and many of my blogging and commenting friends are made out to be kooks. It's obvious from some of the details that AKM and Shannyn provided during the interview with Nicole that they are not very well read on the subject of babygate. There is now a mountain of detailed evidence that makes it clear why not one of us, those who did choose to follow this story, have been threatened with a lawsuit for claiming that Mrs. Todd Palin defrauded the country with her impossible Wild Ride tale and imagined magical birth of Trig. It is because it is NOT TRUE.
For an excellent overview/summary, I implore you to view these newly released videos:
