The point of this post was supposed to be what AY-holes the 32% of Americans who said Sarah Palin should become a homemaker are. Sure, I posted a jokey list of new jobs for Palin at Asylum, but even there, I didn’t tell her to get back in the kitchen. To top it off, 45% of Democrats want her at least barefoot. The poll is an insult, as even a strong Palin critic like me can see. Jerks, all of you. And stupid, since Palin stands to make a lot of coin at whatever she does next. This is the problem with Palin. People either worship her blindly (as the 10% who voted “college professor must), or insultingly dismiss even her legitimate talents. Ah, I wash my hands of it.
But, as I was looking up stories about her recent cancellation of a speech at the Reagan Library, the 2nd time her SarahPac has fumbled something like this (I say fire Stapleton and hire John Ziegler, he’s never late), I came across this item:
AlaskaReport has learned this morning that Todd Palin and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin are to divorce. Multiple sources in Wasilla and Anchorage have confirmed the news.
A National Enquirer story exposing previous affairs on both sides led to a deterioration of their marriage and the stress from that led to Palin’s resignation as governor of Alaska.
The story is completely unsourced horseshit (that’s horse’s hit, for the fainting types), so I wasn’t even going to dignify it with a debunkage. Then, I found this on Palin’s Facebook page:
Yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story. There is no truth to the recent “story” (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that the Palins are divorcing. The Palins remain married, committed to each other and their family, and have not purchased land in Montana (last week it was reported to be Long Island).
Less than one week ago, Governor Palin asked the media to “quit making things up.” We appreciate that the more professional journalists decided to question this story before repeating it.
OK, Sarah, listen to me. You ignored my very nice open letter, but this is important. You have to fire Meg Stapleton, or give her something easier to do. There are no “so-called journalists” reporting this rumor, but now, they’ll all get to report Stapleton’s denial on your behalf.
On top of blowing 2 high-profile appearances, chasing down salacious internet rumors should be the log that breaks the caribou’s back. Dump SarahPac.
Update: I just talked to John Ziegler, who got a good laugh out of the rumor. He’s personally in touch with both Todd and Sarah Palin this week, and informs me that, as of Wednesday, the Palins were together and doing fine. He also reminded me of the story of Palin’s wedding ring, and that she often doesn’t wear it, as in this photo.
