no more editing Palin’s Wiki profile

Even if your Wikipedia user name is ‘YoungTrig’ you can Not edit Sara Palin’s profile again.

The 30 edits – mostly positive – that were removed/downplayed just minutes before her VP status was announced Friday will have to suffice. The brother-in-law probe/scandal was downplayed and glowing traits were spotlighted, but editing one’s own page is a no-no in Wiki’s terms of use, so the jig is up on this piece of political shenanigans.

Ah, mass media-loving Neptune’s deceptive, veiling tendencies are so very useful in Politics, si?

NPR has the story here:

Perhaps someone acting on Palin’s behalf – or against her since this sort of squirrelly activity looks bad – knew her infant son’s name is Trig and could’ve used ‘YoungTrig’ in order to make it ‘seem’ (Neptune) that it was Palin doing the deed. I suspect she was too busy to make the edits herself.

Criticizing Hillary Clinton back in March for “whining” will make whining about her own political treatment a bit of a hypocrisy problem if Palin intends to indulge on this or on other issues. The phrase “deer in headlights” may be replaced by “deer in spotlights” any day now for the hockey mom.

As Jilly noted in the comment thread after ‘some notes on Sara Palin’s natal chart’ her Downs Syndrome child may be her grandchild. My leanings are not to  ‘go there’ at all when there are children involved, yet it illustrates that no one is perfect ENOUGH to be in politics with its microscopic lens and inclination to distort what it finds.

If claiming the child is Palin’s attempt is to ‘hide’ (Neptune) her daughter’s pregnancy, I still think it should be off limits, but maybe that’s just me. Too many families have had, have, and will always have similar sad dilemmas and it’s not fair grist for political mills, imho.

Well, perhaps Wikipedia will bring out more details soon on this attempt to spruce up Sara Palin’s profile for immediate public consumption and admiration. But why should she need it?

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
