Ice Queen denies racy bio?

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.

Johnny Edwards finally indicted?

According to the Associated Press, “a federal grand jury indicted two-time presidential candidate John Edwards on Friday over $925,000 spent to keep his mistress and their baby in hiding during the peak of his 2008 campaign for the White House.

“The case of USA v. Johnny Reid Edwards contains six counts, including conspiracy, four counts of illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements.

“The indictment said the payments were a scheme to protect Edwards’ White House ambitions. ‘A centerpiece of Edwards’ candidacy was his public image as a devoted family man,’ the indictment said.

‘Edwards knew that public revelation of the affair and the pregnancy would destroy his candidacy by, among other things, undermining Edwards’ presentation of himself as a family man and by forcing his campaign to divert personnel and resources away from other campaign activities to respond to criticism and media scrutiny regarding the affair and pregnancy,’ the indictment added.

The indictment and an arrest warrant were filed in Greensboro, N.C., which is in the district where his campaign was headquartered.

Edwards is a pile of refuse and deserves to go to prison for a very long time. He’s the quintessential example of sleazy politician and has hurt his family, and all those whoever believed him or supported him. Why do men like Edwards, Ensign, Clinton, Newt and others do this sort of sordid thing? Who cares? It demonstrates a clear weakness that should make anyone thinking of supporting them that they cannot be trusted. It begs the questions:

“If you lied about this, what else have you lied about”?

“If you misused your office, or your campaign to cover this up, what else have you covered up”?

Sorry, but if you can’t honor your wedding vows, how can you be trusted to keep the oath you swear as President, as Senator or even as Dogcatcher?

America doesn’t need weak men – or women – in positions of public trust; we need individuals of honor and integrity. If you’ve had an affair you’ve proven you have neither, and need not apply.
