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.

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

    That has to be one of the most idiotic things I have ever read. Like “Boris” knows what in the hell the Obama campaign thinks. Let’s hear it for pulling stuff out of your a–. You people are delusional and always have been. You liken McCain to the Manchurian Candidate in 2000 and spread lies about his “black daughter by a prostitute” then you love all over him 7 years later. Pathetic.

    I see more Obama camp blogger employees here trying to spin things again.

    What a bunch of tripe. The only reason I found you nest of nut cases is I googled Palin and affair to get some more info about her husband’s business partner. She fired her legislative director for having an affair with the business partner’s wife. The only party that pays bloggers is the GOP. How do I know?
    I was a campaign chair on McCain2000. Why do Republicans have such a hard time with the truth?

    This story was not floated by the Obama campaign it was floated by the The National Enquirer. For McBushes sake he better hope it is not true after going out of his way to deny it. This joke of a ticket is the most dangerous political trick in the history of this country. I guess that old saying that” not all Republicans are stupid just most of them” holds true with these two bold face liars.

    I love Sarah Palin. Based on everything I’ve seen, I trust her to do the job she’s chosen for. I am unconcerned about the rumors. They make me laugh because it’s all so silly. Obama is afraid and it makes him look weak and everyone so desperate to back him. You can’t buy the presidency. Oh wait a minute? That has happened before, right? Or is that a “rumor”?

    Bush, Cheney give Palin thumbs-up

    The headlines from AP….says it all….and then Karl Rowe was reported to have said that Palin was the Trojan Horse….which means to draw attention away from ISSUES–everyone will be focused on her and people will not realize until it is too late that we will have 4 more years of Bush, Cheney only with different names but the same polices. The GOP ‘spin machine’ has been oiled and is working well for this election. But what are her beliefs on issues? What are McCain’s plan to change when he votes with Bush 95% of the time, not 90%. The American People and Bristol and Levi are the victims in this election.

    It is fact that Mr. Palin’s business partner had his records sealed the moment Mrs. Palin was “chosen” after her thorough “vetting.” Talk about being rid hard and hung up vet!

    As usual, there are no sources documented which prove that Obama’s campaign had anything to do with the National Enquirer article. They make stuff up and the brainwashed Cons say YEESSSSS MASSSTEERRRRRR

    Isn’t it funny to hear the GOP whinning to the media about smear campaign’s and bias – that’s like the pot calling the kettle black – so to speak. The GOP are the ones who developed and mastered the dirty game. They are the ones along with their media shills – FAUX, Limbaugh, Savage, O’Reilly, Coulter, Beck and on and on who have degenerated the dialogue and made really bad behavior the norm. The silly whinners should clean up their own act before striking out at others.
