    Default Why Sarah Palin named Trig Trig (because this deserves its own thread)

    While I'm at it, does anyone actually believe that Palin's name for the child of miraculous provenance was found by her deep knowledge of ancient Norse as she claims in her magical-realism novel, "Going Rogue"? I mean, seriously. She knows about as much ancient Norse as she does English grammar. It's as credible as the idea that she gave a speech while having contractions, several hours after going into labor, as she claims in her novel. It's as credible as her amazing journey in labor with a special needs child on a plane where the flight attendants, according to the Anchorage Daily News, did not even notice she was pregnant. It's as credible as any number of indisputable self-serving, unbalanced lies that she has told in the public record for years.

    The medical term for Down Syndrome is Trisomy-21 or Trisomy-g. It is often shortened in medical slang to Tri-g.
    Is it not perfectly possible that the very name given to this poor child, being reared by Bristol, is another form of mockery of his condition, along with the "retarded baby" tag? And does the way in which this poor child was hauled around the country on a book tour, being dragged out in front of flash photographs in the middle of the night, barely clothed, suggest someone who actually cares for children with special needs, or rather sees them as a way to keep the spotlight on her?

    So, he's named Trig simply because Tard isn't politically correct?

    God, I hope this isn't true. That would be so sad. It probably is though.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    Wait-her scientific knowledge is lacking. Logic is not her strong suit. I say this was happenstance, for her. This idea gives her more credit than she deserves.

    I thought it might be short for the mathematical term "trigonometry" - a course she likely flunked in school. But then, what the hell do I know?

    Her other kids have stupid names as well. What's the deep rooted meaning he has uncovered there?

    Sullivan really turns into a gossipy old woman on anything related to Sarah/Trig Palin. Rarely in human history has a gay man been that obsessed with what came out of a woman’s vagina.

    And I was willing to go with the explanation that Bristol had conceived him while "studying" for a Trigonometry quiz...

    Another possibility - Sarah was glancing over and getting a glazed-over look while reading about triglycerides.

    I wondered about his name because I was aware of the Trisomy 21 syndrome, I did not know it was also known as Tri-G. What a bitch! I bet the kid will be in a long term care facility as soon as he gets past early childhood. I'm sure she only kept him for sympathy votes from the public....tsk tsk
