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.

    The tip came from a local. It’s funny when Edwards was exposed, your rhetoric was a lot different.

    Jimmy says: “Perhaps her latest child is not her husbands”

    I strongly doubt that. If the baby was her husband that would be strange enough, but if the baby was actually her husbands – plural – that would be just plain weird. How is that even possible?

    Besides, what has this got to do with the extramarital affair?

    Saying that Obama should fire the “individual” who leaked this story is ridiculous. He has said that he would do so over anyone in his campaign that would attack her children, they are off limits. Sarah has put herself out there as a target now and needs to address these allegations. Republicans are quick to dish out but cry uncle when the tables have turned, this is her Reverend Wright. I am sure this is just the begining of her dirty little secrets coming to light.

    Do everyone a favor, and get your facts straight before spouting crap, will ya? And this is coming from someone who is not only voting FOR Mcain, but has been a die-hard Republican for over 22 years. At least have the guts to be intellectually honest when supporting our side.

    1) Crybaby Liberals? Is that the best you can do to defend your position? Put some meat on the bones and quit falling back on tired cliches to make your point.

    2) Obama got a pass from the media? Are you for real or have you not been paying attention for the past 6 months? The media gave him a sound drubbing on all the issues you just mentioned, and more. Whether he deserved it or not is not the point. It played REPEATEDLY in the media for months, from Fox to Limbaugh on the right, to some rather liberal media outlets who jumped on it. It nearly sank his candidacy, so what the hell are you talking about. Somehow, he recovered from it, as I’m sure Palin will, but you sound like the crybaby here trying to blame the media for attacking her, while not giving credit to the same outfits that smacked down Obama. Again, work on your intellectual honesty a bit. And learn to take it if you want to dish it out, buddy.

    Politics is a hardball game. You don’t want us to lose, then buck up and quit whining about this. We can’t afford to have folks like you doing exactly what you are accusing the other side of doing.

    she was for the 200+million earmark for the bridge.
    she left her city 20 million in debt, a town of 7000.
    her husband was a member of a separatist party.
    she ran a 527 to defend corrupt politicians in alaska.
    she wants to teach creationism in public school science classes along side evolution.
    she doesn’t want sex education taught in school, or any mention of condoms.
    she wanted to have books banned in her towns library. and threatened to fire the librarian.
    troopergate abuse of power case pending.
    and on and on.

    Hey, Repub for Life buddy,

    Calling yourself a Republican doesn’t nessesarily make it so!

    Never has there been a presidential candidate who has hung less meat on the bones for the American people to make an informed decision than BHO. Constantly repeating the word “CHANGE” does not inform me of anything! What CHANGE? The major media never presses for any answers from this guy.

    You say,”The media gave him a sound drubbing on all the issues you just mentioned, and more.” What! What channel did they have you locked into in the home? JUST THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE. Major media did their best to bury all of his dirty laundry. If it were not for Hannity & Limbaugh they would have buried it completely. Make no mistake about it BHO is the media’s candidate bar none. Ask Hillary!

    However, according to you ‘Repub for Life’ some RATHER LIBERAL MEDIA OUTLETS jumped on those stories and REPEATEDLY played it for months. And it nearly sank his candidacy!!
    Well, buddy if you have the guts to be “intellectually honest” ….NAME THEM!

    I would side with you assertion of the allegation of a Palin affair being baseless if you hadn’t put up a baseless allegation of your own.

    Where the proof in any way that this tip came from the Obama campaign. Where are YOUR facts? Making up things degrades your argument that the Enquirer is making things up.

    And no word from Obama? He only said unequivocally this week that the private lives of Palin’s daughters were off limits. Or were you too busy making up facts on Obama to see the real ones.

    So we’ve heard for weeks from the GOP pundits on how the mainstream media ignored the Enquirer reports of the John Edwards affair. So as usual, when the shoe is put on the other foot, the right cries like babies.

    Hypocrisy first.

    This is what Republicans do. When they’re caught in something dirty, the first thing they do is deny and blame the “drive-by media” or the awful Democrats. Only when the pictures are produced or the culprit makes an admission do they stop…..til the next time.

    (Remember the senator with the “wide stance” in the airport mens’ room, the Florida congressman who preferred young boys & camping trips, the representative from Louisiana who turned up on the DC hooker’s list of clients, Newt Gingrich, the congressman who chased down Clinton’s affair, the Limbaugh narcotics & doc-shopping case, etc., etc? By the way, Limbaugh’s millions apparently made that one disappear!)

    As for the National Enquirer, I don’t read it. However, they apparently were the only ones to run the Edwards story to ground when the media wouldn’t touch it. Give the Enquirer time and they’ll likely run down this one too. After all, there is at least one person outside the family who knows the truth and for the right fee, I’m sure he’ll fess up if it’s true.

    I agree with jaisoon above (26). You can add to the list failure to pay for the business license and taxes on the carwash.
