John McCain became the presumptive republican nominee on March 4th.
Sarah Palin announced to stunned colleagues that she was pregnant on March 5th.
And yes, veep rumors were swirling at the time.
UPDATE: Here is the story of Sarah and Todd Palin's wedding: " When they married in 1988, Sarah and Todd were coming off a mediocre fishing season in Bristol Bay. She didn’t want to burden her parents with the costs of a lavish wedding, something the young couple felt was unnecessary.
So they took the practical approach. One day in August, they simply drove to the Palmer courthouse and bought a marriage license. But they still needed two witnesses to stand for them at the ceremony.
“So they went to the senior center there in Palmer and got two old people as witnesses,” Heath said. “They didn’t know them at all. I’d love to have seen that. When Sarah came home, she said, ‘By the way, we got married today.’”
Guess who had a baby eight months later.
Lying about babies and family values seems to be a theme. Teh hypocrisy. It burns.
