'It Came from Wasilla' by Todd S. Purdum Posted Online

Todd S. Purdum unleashed a torrent of anonymously corroborated indictments against (now former) Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, accusing her of erratic, irrational, unethical and down-right improper behavior in her post.

I had found out that I was pregnant while out of state first. While out of state, there just for a fleeting moment, I thought, Nobody knows me here. Nobody would ever know. I thought, Wow, it is easy to think maybe of trying to change the circumstances and no one would know—no one would ever know. Then when my amniocentesis results came back, showing what they called abnormalities—oh, dear God—I knew, I had instantly an understanding, for that fleeting moment, why someone would believe it could seem possible to change those circumstances, just make it all go away, get some normalcy back in life.”
