Dan Savage denies breaking up Sarah Palin’s son’s marriage

Dan Savage gets married to his boyfriend right before Sarah Palin’s son get divorced from his wife.  Clearly another heterosexual marriage destroyed by the homosexuals, if you ask me. Oh the humanity!

Though Dan is now categorically denying that his “gay” marriage several days ago to his longtime boyfriend-in-America-husband-in-Canada Terry Miller had anything to do with splitting up the Palins (this is really from Dan, he just emailed it to John):

“Hundreds of other same-sex couples have married in Washington state since Sunday. It’s true, of course, that every time a same-sex couple marries, a straight marriage collapses. But there’s no proof that my marriage caused the collapse of Track Palin’s marriage. It could’ve been some other couple’s marriage, or perhaps it was the collective weight of all the same-sex weddings that have been performed in Washington state since Sunday that doomed the Palins’ marriage. We are not trying to evade responsibility here—being married is all about assuming responsibility—but I feel this effort to blame us is baseless.”

Sounds like a non-denial denial to me…

And such bad news so soon after Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, famous for being an unwed teenage mom who doesn’t live the father of her child, had her show canceled, followed by the discovery that the show was heavily subsidized by taxpayer money in Alaska.

The California company that made Bristol Palin’s TV show about raising her child has collected a $354,348 subsidy from the state.

Unlike nearly all of the other shows and films subsidized so far under the movie incentive program, the salaries paid to Alaska residents on the Palin show account for a majority of the total  “Alaska expenses” for the TV show.

Palin and the five other Alaska residents who participated as “talent” on the show collected close to a half-million in wages.

They’re a real “pick yourself up by your own bootstraps” kind of family, those Palins.

I can see a train wreck from my kitchen.

Today News reports that Sarah Palin’s son, Track Palin (yet another stellar name), is divorcing his wife of 18 months, and they have a 1-year-old child.

Hmm, married 18 months ago, and a child born only 12 months ago.

Why is it with the Palins the math never seems to add up?

Remember, Sarah Palin’s own child-birth math – with the birth of the very same son “Track,” no less – didn’t seem to add up either, and she refused to comment on it during the campaign in 2008. No less than the NYT noted it.  This from my earlier post on that topic:

  1. Sarah Palin’s first son, Track Palin, was born in April 1989 (we don’t have the exact day). Actually now we do, courtesy of FOX News’ Alan Colmes. He was born on April 20.
  2. Sarah Palin was married on August 29, 1988. She eloped.
  3. 38 weeks is the typical human pregnancy.
  4. 38 weeks before her son’s birthday, April 20, 1989, is July 28, 1988 – i.e., that would be the hypothetical day of conception.
  5. If this data is correct, that would mean that Sarah Palin eloped four weeks after her son’s conception.
  6. Sarah Palin’s son could still be legitimate if he was born four weeks premature, AND if he was conceived on the night his parents eloped.

The Palin family should be treated with the same compassion and respect that they’ve so famously offered to others during these tough times. Including Sarah Palin’s support for an amendment to the US Constitution banning gay marriage, since she apparently thinks gay marriage are somehow a threat to “traditional” marriage.  And her daughter Bristol’s rant against gay parents, in which the unwed mother, who moved thousands of miles away from her child’s father, lectured President Obama, incredibly, about the imperative of children having fathers.

NOTE FROM JOHN: Being from the Chicago area, I didn’t really grow up appreciate the notion of “trash.”  We never really used the word, or the notion.  Thanks to Sarah Palin, I get it now.
