Sarah Palin Affair?

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.

    Slapper – A slapper is a female who is a bit loose. A bit like a slag or a tart. Probably also translates into tramp in American.

    How was the source of this the Obama campaign? How can you make an unsubstantiated statement like that? And can we just give this affair story a rest until something is definitively proven? Until then, it is just a rumor and a smear, you know, kind of like what Bush and Rove used to do and the Dems hated so much.

    Dolly is that you? You know, the first cloned sheep. I thought you had died, but here you are making snide remarks and I’ve decided to join you. If you are in England, you have no advice to give, as your country is headed down the tubes. If you’re Canadian, read about England. If you’re Austrailian or New Zealander, don’t have anything to say except you guys are doing a pretty good job.

    If you’re an ex-pat American, don’t bother coming home.

    Most people who criticize want to be HERE and can’t get a visa.

    I am with Dolly on this one. Why would it surprise anyone that a self-obsessed, sociopath who will do anything (including throwing her own children under the media bus) to achieve her own glory would cheat on her husband. This woman is poison and the sheep in this country blindly follow whatever message is being fed to them. As for the “love it or leave it” mentality, I do not have to leave my country because I believe my government is corrupt, in fact the patriotic thing to do is to stand up against what I feel is unjust and attempt to affect change. This woman goes againt all that the Christian Conservatives supposedly stand for and yet they ARE EATING RIGHT OUT OF HER HAND–baa!!! I believe it was Ghandi who said it best, “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.”

    The McCain/Pain ticket looks like a pimp and ‘ho show. McCain buckled under the right wing pressure and abandoned his first vp pick, Lieberman,for this woman, who is the lamest I’ve ever seen in a candidate.

    Why do you say England is going down the tubes – drain? Why is Australia and New Zealand not. I live in the UK although not from here originally. I think its a very good country to live in.

    just a reflection:
    strolling thru you tube i happened upon McCains “THE ONE” ad. you know the one where obama is depicted as a messiah type figure…and i thought if obama is “THE ONE” would that make McCain “the beast” and palin “the great harlot”?

    Why is everyone feeling badly about the media’s investigation of Sarah Palin? The Republicans threw in a total unknown a couple of months before the election. We need to find out everything we can about her quickly. Everything is fair game- she put herself in this position of scrutiny. The Republicans are using their usual tactics to keep us from examining this woman. The media has a responsibility to find out as much as possible. Frankly, I don’t find her appealing or nice- she is sarcastic and nasty.
