Bad News for Trig Troofers

Crackpot conspiracy theorists and assorted nutcases such as Andrew Sullivan for months have insisted that Trig Palin was not born to his mother, Sarah, but rather to her daughter Bristol. Sullivan as recently as two weeks ago clung to this insanity.

Baby Trig entered the world eight months ago today.

Well, word comes today that Bristol Palin is due to give birth Saturday.
THE first grandchild of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is a boy, her father, Chuck Heath, revealed to Heath said his pregnant granddaughter, Bristol Palin, has a due date of Dec. 20. Asked what Bristol and the child's still unmarried father, Levi Johnston, will name the baby, Heath answered, "Oscar . . . No, I'm just kidding. They don't have a name for it yet."
As I can safely assume no human being has ever given birth eight months apart, Sullivan has some explaining to do.

Not to mention apologizing and asking for forgiveness from Sarah Palin. Somehow I doubt he's man enough to do either.

Instapundit links. Thanks!

Update: A reader emailed to note an instance where someone indeed gave birth eight months apart, so I'll stand corrected on that point. Though in that case the second birth was a couple premature after 28 weeks. In the case of Bristol Palin, however, she'll be full term. Hate to give the troofers something to cling to, but I thought it was worth noting.

Update: Thank to Charles Johnson for the link. Now the Nirther cranks will really be out in force.

Thanks also to Ace and Rand for the links.
