The Trig Truthers are not an alternative/indie band. They are a national train wreck. Somehow, this tabloidian turd of a conspiracy was given enough oxygen to come to life.
Too bad for the rest of us.
The Conspiracy: Sarah Palin is really Trig Palin’s grandmother
America has never seen this level of stupidity in a conspiracy(except for the 9/11 Truthers). The ultra-uselessness of this conspiracy is that, if it were true… Sarah Palin is a Grandma!
How it started: Opponents of John McCain started claiming that Trig Palin was actually the son of his sister.
Putting the bust on Palin’s then teenage daughter for having two kids is the best anyone can hope to achieve in pursuing this idea. Amazingly, reporters were dumpster diving like crazy on the Palin’s and the press’ misguided crusade has elevated Sarah Palin to the level of folk hero for American right. If they never went after her kids, this lady my have faded from the scene long ago.
Losers were posting pictures of Palin and declaring “This is the day before she had the baby!” when it just wasn’t so.
Sometimes Trig Truthing isn’t enough and people have to go that extra mile and simply pick on a baby:
Even shows like Family Guy got in on the act.
There is also a blog written from the perspective of Trig Palin as he calls out his mom’s various political plays using clever “retardonese” type lingo:

What huge rassrole. I won’t even place a link to this level of rassrolery, but at least this rassrole can admit who Trig’s mother is. Please try to at least rise to his level, Trig Truthers.
The Stupid: All of the above
The Reality: Hurts
To watch serious journalists and powerhouse bloggers throw themselves upon the rock of Trig Trutherism has been painful. Here is Dave Wiegel, slapping down uber-blogger Andrew Sullivan and touching on the birthers as well.
We will hear more from these moths to the Truther flame? You betcha.
