Foam-at-the-mouth moonbats are dancing in the streets because an ultra left wing Journalism professor has written a paper which they are touting as lending "credibility" to support their insane conspiracy theory that Trig is not Gov. Palin's son. Investigative reporter Stacy McCain has taken a look at the prog prof's paper and found that it is full of insinuation and totally lacking in any real tests of the theory, as opposed to what is expected of scholarly research. Stacy reports:
Dr. Bradford Scharlott is an associate professor of communications at the University of Northern Kentucky, who has called attention to himself by publishing a 29-page “academic” treatise, the essence of which is an allegation that Todd Palin is a liar:Stacy has learned that Scharlott's paper is being shopped by a publicist. Serious scholars and faculty submit their papers to legitimate academic journals where they are subjected to rigorous peer review. They don't hire publicists to shop their stuff. Just another indication that this joke of a college professor cannot be taken seriously by anyone but the deranged.The theory is that Sarah Palin is actually the grandmother of her purported son Trig, not the mother, and that she staged a gigantic hoax during the campaign to cover up this fact...As I say, I have met Todd Palin, seen Trig scamper around the living room of the Palin family’s lakefront home in Wasilla, and watched Todd read a storybook to the adorable little tyke. Todd just rolled his eyes in disgust at my cautiously indirect mention of the “Trig Truther” nonsense, but I’d double-dog dare any of those fools to try presenting the so-called “evidence” for their lunatic theory while Todd Palin was in the room.
Scharlott’s article walks through all the evidence supporting the theory, including the photos of Palin in what is said to have been a late-stage pregnancy, the leisurely 20-hour trip home that Palin took after she supposedly went into labor in Texas, the refusal of the hospital where Trig was supposedly born to even confirm that he was born there (let alone who was the mother), strange statements from Palin’s doctor and the McCain campaign, and so on.
Yet I didn’t need to meet Todd and Trig to recognize Trig-Trutherism as lunacy.
Jesse “Gryphen” Griffin claims that he corresponded with Scharlott for two months, and that Scharlott shared an advance draft of this paper with him. This indicates that Scharlott is knee-deep into the festering swamp of Palin Derangement Syndrome.
