US political bloggers were working overtime last night on the most crucial issue since the healthcare debate - has Sarah Palin had a boob job?
Since her abortive bid for the White House number two slot Palin has given herself over to campaigning while ducking the actual governing bit. She resigned as governor of Alaska without finishing her term.
While her appearances at Tea Party rallies have dominated the right, now the left has sat up and taken notice after she appeared at a horse racing event sporting what observers believed to be a brand new set of chesticles.
DC gossip site Wonkette first noticed the alleged augmentation, and has a handy gallery of comparative snaps here.
The high level political analysts have spoken to a number of people "with experience in having breasts" who have concluded that the former governor has indeed boosted her campaign agenda a couple of cup sizes.
Gawker, which claims its own expertise on the matter, says its photographic investigation suggests the difference could be down to the lack of a bust-hiding jacket, but "would not be surprised" if she'd had a plastic intervention.
Incidentally, Palin recently built a large wall around her Alaska beach front property, ostensibly because famed political biographer Joe McGinnes had rented the house next door while researching Palin.
The New York Times said ... nothing. ®
