Sarah Palin accused of taking cocaine in new book
telegraph.co.uk ^ | September 15 2011 | Nick Allen

Posted on 09/14/2011 11:06:24 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

The allegations about the former Alaska Governor, who has been pursued by the tabloid press since running for the Vice Presidency in 2008, were originally published in the National Enquirer, which quoted publishing sources close to the book.

If the leftists media had spent 1/10th of the time investigating Obama he would not be President.

Food for thought......

She (allegedly) took cocaine and reportedly slept with black men?

If she was a Democrat...she’d be a certain winner!

I am not sure that Obama has said he stopped using cocaine. He said he used it in college but that doesn’t mean he stopped in college.

I honestly wouldn’t care if she did cocaine once or twice when she was younger. I know a lot of successful conservatives that have done cocaine in their youth.

On the libs regardless of any truth/BS involved. Either way the Libs are stuck. Condemn their precious ‘Lifestyle choices” mantra and thus their own voters or support her and rile their base for doing that as well. No win for the Dems/media. That book will be a big problem and anyone involved will be servicing the underside of the bus.

I wonder how I lived to 41 without doing cocaine... oh yeah... now I remember...I said “no.”

Frankly, I think this book is probably a piece of crap.

This is why I’m not in politics... because I’m a conservative. And if you are conservative, reporters crawl up your backside to get all the details. You get a scurrilous hyperbolic scandalous personal colonoscopy. Even though you have come to your beliefs genuinely and through experience....someone is going to talk about the polyps that were removed from your life.

If you are a liberal... since you don’t stand for anything.... there’s no need for the colonoscopy at all. Even if the cancer will wind up raging through the nation... hey... at least they can’t call you a hypocrite.

Wow. She dated, smoked dope and blew lines back in the day.

What a load of $#!t. Even if she did, no one cares. Who didn’t do this stuff in college. If anything, this will raise her street cred as a normal person. This McGinnis guy is a real bottom feeding, irrelevant hack. I bet these allegation don’t have any proof. They were just thrown in to peddle an unsellable book.

The economy is in shambles, people are in real pain and the leftists thinks Americans give a rats @$$ about this high school BS?

And I think the keywords I added aptly describe what this "writer" has penned.

By the way, I want to thank Berlin Freeper for posting this and for remarking favorably on my choice of keywords. In hindsight, I should have used the term "slanderous article from the British paper" instead of "slanderous thread" since it might appear that I was upset with the poster. We've discussed this via FReepmail and BF understood from the get go my intent. (I did ping the Admin Moderator just to make sure I didn't cross the line by using too many "loaded" keywords).

Suffice it to say, these slanders from the "writer" have me fuming. And I think the blowback on this will be surprising and accrue to Sarah Palin's benefit.

If you’re 41 you came along after the culture had changed about cocaine. The crack epidemic in the ‘80s pushed it out of being, for a few years, a common middle-class dabble.

The only reason I never tried Coke as a kid was because it was too expensive. That was back during the days of leisure suits, gold chains and all that crap.

By the time crack had arrived on the scene, I was living in Japan, had developed Conservative values and wasn’t interested.

But if I had the money back then? Sure.

We all do things as kids we wouldn’t do later in life. This kind of crap annoys the hell out of me.

Sarah Palin’s only 8 years older than me, right?

I’m not so sure that cocaine culture was en vogue in Alaska....

In the 2000’s cocaine culture was rampant in DC.

I don’t blame anyone for what they did. I’m not JUDGING...I’m just saying I never did it.

I think that marijuana should be legalized ... but nothing else.

And... it won’t stop the drug wars....

Anyway.... I don’t have to have my colonoscopy yet.

Obama purchased both crack cocaine and powder for himself and Larry Sinclair on their date. Barack smoked the crack while Larry “serviced” him.

Since Rice admitted tonight that he and Palin did have a fling, maybe the coke thing is true too. We may have a difficult time finding pure as the driven, ok, bad metaphor, purely innocent candidates in the future that never did anything stupid in their younger years. Let’s not call it all slander but instead fight it with Who Cares? Palin is a good person and a great politician. She would be great for America and it matters little whether she dabbled in drugs or slept with men.

I say Big Whoop.

Cocaine in the middle and working classes in the early 80’s was like marijuana in the mid- to late-70’s: a common, casual, social drug to dabble in. But that really only lasted a few years before the legal and other implications led to it becoming less common, less socially acceptable and more risky.

Yes, 8 years matters in this circumstance. You missed a cultural moment.

I was struck by how the account of her snorting cocaine was “it was off a 55 gallon drum”. I know little about cocaine, but I somehow doubt that someone would take a very expensive drug and inhale it off a rusty old oil drum outdoors in the stiff sub-arctic wind. Didn’t they have mirrors in Alaska? Or coffee tables?

She would be running against the current POTUS who cooly bragged to “doing some blow” in college. His pupils look dilated in every photo I’ve seen of him since 2007.
This McGinnis is the creepy guy who moved in next door to the Palin’s & was peeping in 7 year old Peper’s window. He us a vicious political hack, & the Palin’s should sue him for libel.

If I remember correctly, Obama also admitted to dealing to pay for his Weed.

I would guess that Weed was pretty cheap back then, so he probably dealt Coke and took a little off the top. That was probably his first experience with Shared Sacrifice.

McGinnis angered Palin by moving in next door to her in Wasilla, Alaska, while he was researching the book. Palin’s camp has not yet given an official statement, but her husband Todd Palin said:

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. 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.

Even ahead of the book’s release, the handling of the allegations has caused controversy in the US. McGinnis made a deal with Garry Trudeau, author of the popular Doonesbury cartoon, to include extracts in the comic strip. Some papers have decided not to run a strip containing the allegation that Palin once spent the night with basketball star Glyn Rice, saying that it is currently unsubstantiated. Another strip which many declined to run claims “Palin isn’t comfortable in the presence of dark skinned people”.

McGinnis’s claims are certainly headline-grabbing, but it is difficult to judge their veracity. A New York Times blog points out that “many episodes cited in the book relied on unnamed sources or second- or third-hand accounts”.

Todd Palin Slams Joe McGinniss

Todd Palin released a statement late Wednesday condemning claims author Joe McGinniss makes about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin in his upcoming book, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.”

“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 said via SarahPAC’s Rebecca Mansour. “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.”

In his book, McGinniss claims that Palin used cocaine, had a one night stand with retired NBA player Glen Rice, and engaged in an extramarital affair.

Oddly enough, the more they demonize her. The more people relate to her.

They try to shame her for what's happening in most Americans lives today.

I think Rice gave vague answers to McGuinness' questions and McGuiness took that as yes that he did have a fling with Palin. At least that is the impression I got from the NY Times article.

McGuinness is a real POS. Even the MSM thinks he is loathsome.

The words Rice used in the book were “a sweetheart” and “respectful”. Does that sound anywhere close to a one night stand? Or even remotely sexual?
She was the sports journalist for a local station at that time. It SOUNDS like she might have interviewed him and was nice and respectful to him. mcguinness then spun it to ask if maybe it seemed as though it wouldn’t have bothered her to have sex with a black man...even though the rap was she was a racist.
This is one sick b@st@rd.

I could give rats a$$ about what someone did of a sexual nature 30 years ago, as long as it didn’t involve children. I mean I’m over Bill Clinton and his oval office BJ’s. Heck I’m even over Obama’s sex fling with Larry Sinclar, although it still makes me feel like I need a mind blur when I think about it. I’m not sure which is more revolting, Obama having sex with Larry Sinclair or with Wookie

I doubt there are many people who haven’t had some sordid sex fling at some point in their lives. Nothing to see here. Move along.

OMG, OMG, I forgot all about AttackWatch....I’m dead meat.
