Palin Denies Divorce Rumor as 32% of Americans Prove to be Idiots

The point of this post was supposed to be what AY-holes the 32% of Americans who said Sarah Palin should become a 505px-Sarah_Palin_Kuwait_22ahomemaker 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.

Meg Stapleton

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.



  1. […] course, as Tommy Christopher points out, the divorce story was nothing more than an un-sourced Internet rumor that hadn’t been picked up by a single journali… OK, Sarah, listen to me. You ignored my very nice open letter, but this is important. You have to […]

  2. […] media that otherwise would not report claims attributed to unnamed sources on an anonymous blog. OK, Sarah, listen to me. You ignored my very nice open letter, but this is important. You have to fire Meg Stapleton, or […]

  3. Let the media be your guide. They don’t attack Romney or Huckabee. That means she is right on the money.

  4. It’s funny that stories in the “National Inquirer” should be given any credence whatsoever. But media is distorted and dangerous today. Fox News is essentially the very same animal as the “National Inquirer”… yellow journalism at its finest.

    I truly don’t care what Sarah Palin does (even if it’s a matter, as you suggest, of laughing all the way to the bank). Though I’d just as soon she wasn’t involved in government. Like George Bush, she carries a 22 caliber mind into a 45 caliber world. If there ever was a time when we needed smart people in government… it is now.

  5. congrats,to budhouston just look at the smart a– people you and others have voted into office now. liberals at their best. obama polosi , congress , senate and most of the news media (cnn,msnbc, nbc, abc,and cbs .new york times ,huffington post others ican,t think of right now.

  6. Palin fits perfectly into our political system. She’s an ambitious ideologue with tunnel vision who’s willing to be a tool for the party she sides with. But she has a fatal flaw: she attracts too much attention. A lot of attention inevitably brings about some bad press, and no Pres. candidate should be discussed this much in the off season. She needs to go into media black out for the next two years, or she’s through.

  7. @bobbygee: As a long time reader of this blog, I can tell you 4,378 links are required to catch my attention.

    Thank you.

    Often, defamation cases are started on facebook. I’m pretty sure Palin went to Harvard Law.

  8. […] Will the Palins be divorcing? […]
