Sarah Palin Thinks Chelsea’s Baby May Make Hillary ‘Open Her Eyes’ About Abortion

By

And here, we thought today's award for the most ridiculous Clinton theory would go to Lynne Cheney for suggesting that Vanity Fair would only agree to print Monica Lewinsky's essay as part of some Clinton-orchestrated plot. In an Extra interview on Tuesday night, Mario Lopez asked Sarah Palin to weigh in on whether becoming a grandmother will make Hillary Clinton more electable in 2016. "I think it will kind of broaden her world view," Palin replied, rambling for a bit about the national debt. Then, she found the perfect attention-grabbing remark: Perhaps Chelsea's baby will make Hillary change her views on abortion, though it appears being pregnant herself didn't do the trick.

Palin explains:

Also she, just knowing that her daughter Chelsea is pregnant with a baby – it’s a real baby! It’s not some disposable something – and I know that will be controversial – but those who, perhaps, they’re in this position now as a parent or a grandparent, they realize that sanctity of life, how innocent, how precious it is. And of all places it should be in the womb that these babies are protected. So maybe even on a social issue like that she’ll open her eyes.

We even get two bonus remarks, in which Palin pretends she might run in 2016 and reveals that she has a different definition of "baptize" than the rest of us. Watch out America, she's on a roll!
