Sarah Palin leaves out Bristol’s ‘bundle of joy’ on things she is thankful for

In the Palin turkey video, now making its way worldwide, the governor is asked the traditional question asked this time of year, “What is it that you’re thankful for this year?”

“So thankful for the health and happiness of my family, that my son’s Striker brigade is safe over there in Iraq, relatively safe, and school’s going well for the kids, and Trig is happy and healthy, just very thankful for the health and happiness of my family.”

So what’s missing from this picture?

Well, if you were on the Christmas card list for the Palins this year, you would hear about what happened to the family: Trig was born, Track went off to Iraq, Mom ran for vice president, and of course, Bristol got pregnant and she is going to marry Levi.

Wait, Palin never mentioned that last part, did she? Bristol was lumped in with “school’s going well for the kids” along with Willow and Piper. Wouldn’t Mom have said “we’re happy for our daughter, soon to give birth, and for our new incoming son-in-law”? After all, Bristol would be really close to being 8 months pregnant at this point, something that might be obvious when she comes into a room.

In a household that took the news well that a teenage girl was pregnant and going to marry the father, you would think that might be worth mentioning. True, there might be some denial for a woman of Sarah Palin’s age to be a grandmother. But for a person who talks about her children a lot, it seems a rather glaring omission not to mention her ever-expanding pregnant teenage daughter close to giving birth.

Unless, of course, Bristol’s pregnancy isn’t true.
