The Immoral Minority
All of these blog entries are a direct challenge to Julia O'Malley's April 14th Anchorage Daily News op-ed, Make. It. Stop. In the three weeks since O'Malley wrote her opinion piece, several other articles have challenged her assertions, but the top photo seems to counter her claim, using a rather vague image of Palin from the side (with the misleading caption "" [she isn't], that we need to put this matter to rest.
The image at the top of this post, coupled with this one from April 8th, 2008
suggest that O'Malley's contention that photographic evidence is definitive needs further consideration from O'Malley herself.
Looking at the March 14th photo reminded me that former political blogger Robert Dillon took a number of photos of Palin in Washington DC, on February 26th, 2008. I ran one of them at PA in the first week of March, 2008. It fooled me at first glance, and I wrote then, ".....pretty much pegs it, eh?"
On further consideration, Dillon's photo pegged nothing. This morning, I commented at Jesse Griffin's post on Novak's article:
Robert Dillon took some photos on February 26,2008 (less than three weeks earlier than the image at the top of this post) of Palin in Washington DC, while she was there during the Supreme Court's hearing of the EVOS case. I believe he took several of Palin next to Cordova Eyak artist Mike Webber's Shame Pole, which had been brought from Cordova to DC by Cordova fishers to support their public presence there during the USSC hearing.
I published one of the photos at Progressive Alaska back then, but Dillon took several.
He now works for Lisa Murkowski. When he got his job with Lisa, he took down his site. Possibly somebody knows Dillon and could persuade him to release all the images he took of Palin on February 26 2008 in DC. Maybe Lisa herself could encourage Robert - who is an excellent photographer - to come forward with the images Dillon has of Joe Miller's BFF.
Maybe somebody should encourage Dillon to revisit his February 26th 2008 photos of Palin. What do you think?
Until I see better evidence that Palin actually was pregnant on March 14th, 2008, I remain, once again adapting Joe McGinniss' term, "TriGnostic."
