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.

    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.

    True or not , I seriously doubt the rumors came from the Obama camp. Why should they? She’ll already got way too many strikes against her…another’s not needed

    Hypocrisy first!!
    She’ll already got way too many strikes!

    Talk about hypocrisy, you have got this woman condemned with no proof. Just on the word of some unknown left wing loony bloggers!

    “For the right fee, I’m sure he’ll fess up if it’s true.” —- for the right fee most people will tell you whatever you want to hear! Didn’t you ever hear of paid for expert witnesses?

    “Obama said unequivocally this week that the private lives of Palin’s daughters were off limits.” Gee, do you think maybe he had his fingers crossed?

    This is politics. If necessary he will say or do anthing to win. To him it is all about OBAMA! It is all about winning!

    OMG how much more can there be?

    Five kids and she still has enough energy for an affair?? GIve her the job already.

    I know it is only a rumor now, but think this might be true and you didn’t need Obama’s camp to leak it, here’s why.

    1) They actually mention the individual-her husbands business partner. She might be fair game as a public servant, but he is certainly not.

    2) She has a really pissed off ex-brother in law who knows the family secrets and would expose her just for the sport of it.

    3) She has pissed off a lot of people, especially Republicans in Alaska and they would love to hand over her head on platter.

    4) If it weren’t, McCain’s people would sue, not “threaten to sue”

    Team Obama is just sitting back waiting for the other high heel to drop and if it does, it will probably be the nail in the coffin.

    Republicans were ALL OVER the John Edwards scandal about him cheating on his wife when it broke on National Enquirer.

    But now that it’s on Sarah Palin, the Republicans are saying the National Enquirer is lying and that Obama planted the information.

    Stick with one story, Republicans! Either the National Enquirer is credible or it isn’t!

    Same with Rush Limbaugh’s hypocrisy! When a caller to Rush Limbaugh’s radio show asked about Jamie Lynn Spears’ parents, Limbaugh:

    Caller: Would you tend to think that a family in this position, though, wouldn’t you think that there would be a more watchful eye as a parent to be watching over these kids so this doesn’t happen to them?

    Limbaugh: I would certainly hope so, but it’s long past time for this to happen. The parents here are the culprits!

    But where is Judge Rush Limbaugh when it comes to Bristol Palin? Aren’t her parents, Todd and Sarah Palin, culprits?!?

    Republicans are lying, feces-smearing HYPOCRITES.

    Hey, ‘Repub for Life’, Still waiting for the names of the ‘RATHER LIBERAL MEDIA OUTLETS who jumped on those stories and REPEATEDLY played it for months. And it nearly sank Obama’s candidacy’.

    Guess you made that part up. So much for intergrity and intellectual honesty!

    It is okay to talk about John Edwards affair but not Sarah Palins? I guess the media is biased as men’s affairs are fair game but not women’s.

    Uh…Boris,

    You apparently are not too bright are you?

    Let’s see, where shall we start?

    Print Media:
    NYT
    Washington Post
    Vanity Fair

    TV News Outlets:
    CNN
    MSNBC

    Blogs:
    Talking Points Memo
    Daily Kos
    AmericaBlog

    Need a few more? Links perhaps to stories and dates when his approval ratings took a nose dive in the light of constant coverage? Or do you not understand how to Google and do a few simple internet searches? Hmmm? Am I going to have to hold your hand through the entire process?

    Are you going to claim that these are not “liberal media outlets”? For doing so would completely undermine your argument.

    Have at it big guy! The truth hurts, but at least I can face it. Good luck with your path to self awareness. It’s gonna hurt, but you need the lesson apparently. I did, and it is sobering to know the truth about your enemies. Try it sometime instead of spouting rhetoric. Know the facts.

    By the way, YouTube is a wonderful resource for helping me continue to make an ass out of you if you’d like in front of all these people. It’s all there, in living color. In the talking heads own words.

    Prove me wrong. I dare you…
