Sarah Palin's medical records. Yes, that letter...
There's a person still commenting furiously on the latest Open Thread, discussing the merits of the letter written by Dr Cathy Baldwin-Johnson regarding Sarah Palin's medical history which was released on the eve of the election in 2008.
Some people doubt the letter is genuine and the person above has challenged them to prove the letter is a fake.
The way I see it, it doesn't matter whether the letter is fake or not. The insertion of a certain paragraph makes me think the letter was carefully concocted to reflect certain tidbits Sarah Palin wanted to make public in order to "prove" she gave birth to Trig and make the wild ride seem less wild.
If I had asked my doctor to write a letter about my medical history I would have been very surprised if he had included details regarding one of my children's health.
(Perhaps people started thinking the letter was fake because the text is skewy on the page. Well, maybe the good doctor's computer skills are just as sloppy as the advice she gave Sarah Palin during the wild ride...)
Comprehensive analyses of Dr Cathy Baldwin-Johnson's letter can be found here and here.
