The Sarah Palin 'revelations': next we'll be told she shot JFK and faked the moon landings

Tim Stanley

September 15, 2011

It’s a myth that Sarah Palin is hated by the mainstream media. They love her, just for all the wrong reasons. For three years she has been a source of endless copy. Having covered her extensively in the 2008 race to the point of libel, they then gave her daughter a reality TV show and Sarah a wildlife documentary. Now writer Joe McGinniss has published a book claiming that Sarah Palin snorted coke, slept with a basketball star and had an affair with her husband’s business partner. Over night she has turned from a gun-wielding illiterate to a pill-popping party girl. It’s only a matter of time before we read that she also shot JFK and faked the moon landings.

This new round of accusations looks like a fantasy. McGinniss uses unnamed sources and it’s obvious that a lot of his named ones are motivated by spite (including a neighbour who had a road built across her property by the Palins). If anything, McGinniss has humanised Mrs Palin. He reveals that she sometimes holds a grudge (shock!) and has even had a row with her husband (horror!). He doesn’t go so far as to say that she once parked in a disabled spot, but I’ll bet the little minx has.

The book is more interesting in what it reflects about the obsessive quality of media coverage of the Palins. McGinniss comes off like a stalker. He rented a house next door to Sarah Palin’s, putting him within 15 ft of the kids’ play area. Palin posted a note on her Facebook page asking him to stay away from her children. McGinniss – to put it lightly – freaked out...

Dude's a nut. He's obsessed with Palin, which means one day he could transefer that obsession, and he probably will. On that note, if you see this moonbat anywhere near you, get a restraining order ASAP:

No way. She would have kept pushing the date back to increase drama.

No, if I see him near me, I won’t be getting a restraining order. I’ll be doing something a bit more immediate and a bit more physical.

LOL! Although it makes me wonder, is this book the reason Sarah’s been waiting to declare? To let the spotlight of the book die down before she formally announces? Hmmmmm.

Joe McGinniss' book is a fantasy and so over-the-top with it's unsubstantiated accusations that it is really an unintended parody of the lefts hatred of and obsession with Sarah Palin. I doubt Sarah Palin will even comment on it except to dismiss it as rubbish. However, I disagree with the Telegraph writers conclusion that Sarah Palin should just slink away from presidential politics and count her money or, as some folks who always claim to 'love' Sarah Palin advise just before they add a 'but' to their comment, she should forgo running for president and stand on the sidelines, cheer-leading for someone else. This Tim Stanley fellow seems to conclude that because, as a non-candidate, Sarah Palin has low approval numbers in the polls she is a no longer relevant and won't run. Perhaps she won't but I hope that is not the case. The current 'front-runners' in the Republican primary race have their individual assets but overall, I don't see anyone with Palin's conservative convictions or her charisma. She is a breath of fresh air in national politics and has been thoroughly vetted by both the left and the right. Her enemies are the left and the Republican establishment and they are vehement in their opposition to Sarah Palin. That tells me a lot, all of it positive. The next move is up to Sarah Palin but if she declines to run, for whatever reason, I'll have a lot less optimism about the future of America and will vote for the Republican candidate for president but with only a bit more enthusiasm than I had voting for John 'the maverick' McCain in 2008.

I just was on another thread commending the Perry supporters (and main supporters of other candidates) for not piling on and clucking, then you come on and say the lame thing you just said.

Shame on you. Of course she's not done, almost every news outlet is skewering this stuff as lies, it's backfiring in the finest of ways. Only the bottom feeders are pretending it's true, and you slipped that in such a nice smarmy manner.......how good of you.

I doubt it will be believed except by the very young, gossipy FB set. The general public has been burned out by the “Get Sarah!” MSM. It’s been overplayed.

The MSM would rather talk about Sarah than Obama. If they would have talked about Obama, he would have never been elected. The MSM is afraid of Obama.

The press has been taken over by liberals who agree with Obama and think that socialism/marxism is a good way of life for Americans. They aren't afraid of him. They support him.

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist

I don't see this changing anything. It's just another in a long line of disgusting slanders.

It may be that there are some people who might actually believe this tripe.

My guess is they are so dumb they couldn't find their way out of a phonebooth, much less in to a voting booth.

Sarah Palin will succeed or fail on her own, not because of nonsense like this.

You're a real piece of work, Lakeshark. Patriot08 supports Sarah Palin, and she supports Rick Perry. Her post was addressed to me because she knows I support them both as well. Your little cheap shot says alot about you.

They hate Palin. She is as anti-socialism as a person can get. And she’s not an elitist. In other words she isn’t one of “them”.

Sarah Louise Palin (née Heath) born February 11, 1964. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the thirty-fifth President of the United States, was assassinated at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. I’ve heard of “shoot to wound” but “shoot from the womb” isn’t a common phrase.

Just look at the patronizing way she said that, there is no doubt she was metaphorically sticking in the knife, it stuck out far enough for anyone to see. You're right about one thing, I don't believe it wasn't a nasty comment one bit.

The two of you can pretend you are for her, but your posts prove otherwise.

And talking about cheap shots ss, you're only angry because you can't answer the things I bring up about your candidates record. It's not name calling you fear, it's the inability to answer for his pandering to the amnesty/LaRaza wing of America.

I’ve watched these exchanges and I’ve been pinged to most. I know who’s supporting Sarah and who’s supporting Perry, so let’s stop the nonsense. Sure you like Sarah, but there’s a difference between liking and supporting and I realize she’s not yet a candidate.

I’m watching for her decision come Saturday, Constitution Day, although I could be wrong...

You've been taunting Palin supporters for the past month because she hasn't yet declared for her candidacy. You claim to support her then you do that oh so wonderful job of skewing her supporters, so pardon me while I go barf about your claim.

You're a total phony, you can't answer about your candidate's horrid illegal immigration record, and then you taunt supporters of Palin while you claim you like her.

Yep, you're a phony.

I've said all I wanted to, now I'm done with this.

It is an incredible contrast, isn't it? On one hand we've got the NYT asking readers to help them go through 25,000 e mails from Palin (turning up nothing) and on the other, we've got a PRESIDENT who we know NOTHING about. What were his grades? Where are his legal writings? Did he have a girlfriend before he met Michelle? Who are his friends besides Tony Rezko and Bill Ayers?
