Well, although I thought outside-the-box thinking was far beyond John McCain's skeleton finger reach, this one did surprise me and I must say, good job! Hurrah for Track and Trig and that extra chromosome. We could do worse than boys with really gay names and snow mobile racing!

Mother of five
They have five children. Their son, Track, enlisted in the U.S. Army on Sept. 11, 2007.

Palin gave birth to their fifth child, Trig, last April. The baby boy has Down syndrome, a genetic abnormality that impedes a child's intellectual and physical development.

"When we first heard, it was kind of confusing," Palin said, according to an account in the Anchorage Daily News. She called the news "very, very challenging."

But she added in a note, imagining what God would say to her family, "Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in this mixed-up world you live in down there on Earth. Trig is no different, except he has one extra chromosome."


And Sarah does bear a resemblance to President Laura (if only she were a real person and could run) Rosalyn from Battlestar Galactica so maybe there is hope for this fracked-up world...
