Palin Releases Medical Records

According to Greta van Susteren, Governor Palin has released a summary of her medical records, just like Senator Obama had done. No links so far.

Medical records are not a big deal, except to conspiracists like Andrew Sullivan and frankly, to us in the Blogosphere. Most Americans won't even register the fact, and neither side will care one whit when voting for either.

In Senator Obama's case, his grandmother's passing leaves him with an awful legacy, not helped by his own lifelong smoking habit -- his mother, grandfather and now grandmother have all died of cancer.

Meanwhile, the Heaths have a genetic predisposition to autism, plus they have a Down Syndrome grandchild.

More info as I get it.

ADDED: Governor Palin's family physician released a two-page summary. Here it is, in PDF format.

Not only does it cover her FIVE pregnancies (all eyes turn to Sullivan...), but it reveals that the Governor had a breast biopsy in 1992, which turned out to be a benign legion. Her last visit showed Palin had low blood pressure, 96/61, not inconsistent with women who have just given birth, incidentally. Her pulse was 77.

(This is rather eerie. My last vitals were 100/60, with a pulse rate at 75...)

Dr. Baldwin-Johnson went on to state that there is no medical reason why she wouldn't fulfill her duties as Vice-President of the United States of America.
