From the time she was born until about age six, Sarah Palin lived in a remote Alaskan town near the closest Canadian city, Whitehorse.
At a Canadian interview, she admitted that she used to get her treatment in Canada's single-payer healthcare system although she's opposed to the same system in the US.
Since Sarah and her parents frequented the medical care system in Canada, the question is wether her mother was rushed to a Canadian hospital to give birth to her little future governor, Sarah.
"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada," Palin said in her first Canadian appearance since stepping down as governor of Alaska. "And I think now, isn't that ironic?"
The irony, one guesses, is that Palin now views Canada's health care system as revolting: with its government-run administration and 'death-panel'-like rationing.
Clearly, however, she and her family once found it more alluring than, at the very least, the coverage available in rural Alaska and why one questions if she's really Canadian.
Officials at several hospitals in that area declined to give out information on patient visits.
