Sarah Palin Affair?

September 3, 2008

Did Sarah Palin have an affair? That’s what the National Enquirer is sort of alleging, but sort of not. See photos and video of Sarah below.

Of course, we must consider the source of this allegation that Sarah Palin had an affair which turns out was apparently the Obama campaign itself. The National Enquirer, supermarket tabloid extraordinaire, alleges sort of that Palin might have had an affair with her husband’s business partner based on a tip. Who says so and why?

Turns out upon examination that the story is based on an anonymous source which the paper itself describes as an “incredible charge” by someone who appears to be a well-connected insider. The story may have come down to someone in the Obama campaign feeding the Enquirer a line. Their disclaimer that the charge was not credible did not pacify Sarah Palin’s team who are going to make a political issue out of media bias and dirty tricks from the Obama campaign.

McCain adviser Steve Schmidt said earlier today:

“The smearing of the Palin family must end. The allegations contained on the cover of the National Enquirer insinuating that Gov. Palin had an extramarital affair are categorically false. It is a vicious lie.”

The McCain camp has denied the Palin affair rumor, and is threatening to sue the National Enquirer over these allegations. So far Obama himself remains silent.

The tabloid issued a statement to the Huffington Post, where they barely spoke of their allegations of the Sarah Palin affair but yet brought up issues not even related to this story, and spoke of their “exclusives on John Edwards” in the statement as well. The Enquirer has stated that they will have a more detailed report next week. Give me a break.

The issue also writes about Palin’s 17-year-old daughter Bristol, whose pregnancy was announced on Monday. An insider tells the tab that Palin wanted to announce her daughter’s pregnancy and that a wedding date was set before McCain publicly announced Palin as his running mate. That was nixed by the baby daddy, Levi Johnston, who refused with those plans.

Right Celebrity challenges Barack Obama to fire the campaign staffer who apparently put out this baseless rumor in the good old boy method of sexist partisan politics. What are your thoughts on this latest rumor of a Sarah Palin affair and who is making the allegations? Add your comments! More photos and video below.

    Keep these idiotic smear posts coming. I truly enjoy watching Ms. Palin get angry and kick Obama’s ass over garbage like this.

    It’s fine entertainment.

    I really wouldn’t doubt this story since I have known about it for a long time. Weird though since my cousin lives in Alaska and said, when Palin was mentioned by the press to be the VP choice of McCain that there were “many secrets in her closet that would shock the McCain campaign and that she was a deceptive, control freak who didn’t care who she stepped on. He also said that there was an affair and he thought it would be made public”. I laughed at him because I am a McCain supporter but now I am really wondering if she is going to ruin McCain’s chances. I guess time will tell. The Enquirer is not likely to mess with the powerful forces of McCain and the Republicans without proof. Makes me shiver.

    I don’t believe the Obama campaign needs to spread vicious rumors about Ms. Palin, I’m confident the truth (whatever that is) will surface. as for the rumors – they are just that. She is applying for the 2nd most powerful position in the free world…she better know how to take a punch from the rumor mill and get back up, or she has no business in the VP slot.

    The fact of the matter is that this woman, although very likable is in no way prepared to run this country if McCain should end his biblically promised days in the next 4 years. She just got a passport last year…and she will be representing all the nuances of American culture to the world? Forget it…I’ll take the educated black guy.

    If the McCain thought it was not legitimate, Why threaten? They wouldn’t be suing, they would sue for defamation of character and libel since the damage has been done and would get the paper to shut the story down and issue a retraction.

    Is the National Enquirer noted for their journalistic integrity? NO.

    Does the mud sometime stick when they throw it as in John Edwards? Of course as in even a broken clock…etc.

    What is the National enquirer most interested in? Circulation & Money. FOLLOW THE MONEY!

    Who has tons of it and who is scared to death of this woman? THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN!

    Wait a minute. This rumor is being floated by the press (not the reputable press, but press nonetheless), NOT the Obama campaign. I know how we all love a fight, and we pretend we are just observers and commentators. In fact, there are many voices adding to the negative tone, the press among them. Let’s be a little more careful about how we attribute this trash. If you are an (R) you want to put this off on Obama’s campaign, but that’s just lazy reporting.

    The REACTIONARY party has nothing but name-calling and fear to run on. So, of course, being the bullies they are they react like children “It wasn’t me” when they get caught up in yet another hypocritical moment.

    The REACTIONARIES can spew all the lies they want and hope some of the s*** sticks, but they cannot escape 8 years of a failed foreign policy, 8 years of a failed domestic policy, and 8 years of literally handing the keys to the candy store to the ultra-rich corporate pigs.

    it’s interesting that RIGHT CELEBRITY is insinuating (gossiping without proof just like the tabloids…) it was Obama with absolutely no evidence whatsoever. you guys are pretty self righteous about this Sarah Palin story not being true but have no problem kicking up more untrue gossip that an Obama aide leaked it. Please. This is all ridiculous and even more ridiculous that Republicans are outrages at the coverage of Sarah. Where was the outrage with Michelle? Hillary? Obama? you reap what you sow guys…
