So, Sarah Palin’s husband – Todd – is calling a book about his family “disgusting lies, innuendo and smears” according to the Associated Press (AP). But wait, isn’t that the usual fare coming out of the Palin camp, especially whenever the ex-governor is talking about the President?
A racy new biography about the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) darling – “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin”, by Joe McGinniss – includes allegations of infidelity and drug use. All this while the Ice Queen is still mum about a possible 2012 run for the GOTP presidential nomination
“This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife,” Todd Palin wrote of McGinniss. “His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo and smears. Even The New York Times called this book `dated, petty,’ and that it `chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.'”
OK, wait a minute; I think Todd is confused, “dated, petty, caustic and unsubstantiated gossip” are all words usually reserved to describe the hatchet job Sarah habitually tries to perform. I guess it really sucks to be the skeet instead of the shot huh?
“We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning,” Sarah Palin wrote last year. “Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden and the family’s swimming hole?”
While McGinniss doesn’t appear to mention “Piper’s bedroom”, Palin’s “little garden” or the “swimming hole”, he does repeat allegations first published in The National Enquirer that Sarah Palin carried on an affair with Brad Hanson, Todd Palin’s former business partner. Wasn’t it the Enquirer that first broke word of John Edward’s affair?
In a statement released through Palin’s minions, Hanson is once again denying the allegations, although according to the Enquirer story at least one witness has sworn an affidavit about the situation.
“This is the same old story that went around in 2008. It is a complete and outright lie,” Hanson said. “Todd and Sarah Palin have been good friends for many years, and in fact we still own property together. We sold a former joint business venture for business reasons, nothing more. These attacks are shameful and those making them seem to be out only to destroy good people and make money doing so.”
Well the chickens have finally come home to roost; one problem facing Palin is when you live by the sword – spreading lies and innuendos – eventually you get hit by the same sword. She makes stuff up all the time, and now everyone should rush to her defense because her camp is denying so-called lies someone else is spreading about her?
A second problem facing the Ice Queen is an awful lot of self righteous uber-conservative Christian “family values” types have turned out to have none; Newt Gingrich and John Ensign to name a few. My father used to say if you take what the used car salesman claims to be a car’s greatest strength; it usually turns out to be its greatest liability. Odds are there’re some pretty dank, dusty and fetid skeletons in Palin’s closet, and isn’t it just too bad someone is giving her a taste of her own medicine.
Time for the political reality check; when you play with the pigs – including the ones with lip stick – you’re going to get covered in some pretty foul smelling stuff, and it doesn’t matter if what the writer has alleged is true or not, Sarah Palin is a phony, and since she spews vindictive poison on an almost daily basis, a hit in return is not only expected but deserved. She wants to play in the big leagues, she better be prepared for the hits; put on the pads or get off the field.
