72-year-old Arizona Senator John McCain admitted today that he chose Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate to hide the fact that he fathered her Down’s Syndrome baby Trig.
DNA tests prove that McCain fathered the child while her husband, BP oil field worker Todd Palin, was snowmobiling.
“I admit that I fathered the child but that’s not the only reason I chose her as my running mate”, McCain stated at an early afternoon press conference. “I also chose her to grab the women vote from Obama”.
McCain claims her chose Palin over much more qualified women such as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice because of the paternity issues.
“It had nothing to do with Condoleezza being black or anything”, McCain asserted.
McCain would not be the first president to father a child out of wedlock. Thomas Jefferson is known to have fathered several children through his slave Sally Hemings. Grover Cleveland and Warren Harding are also alleged to have produced offspring outside of marriage.
