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...

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.

Put Todd on speed-dial.

Give today.

Cheers!

A. "Governor."
B. Someone who would campaign for AlGore.
C. All of the above.

Just thinking of other possible answers.

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

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?

Look there! Up on the grassy knoll!

It’s Sarah Palin!

Since she was born in February following the Kennedy assassination in November she must have learned to shoot while still in the womb. Talk about precocious!

Just the pygmy goat Amish, an inconsequential offshoot sect.

I think I just put the pieces together.

Joe McGinnis is the “Attack Watch” Webmaster.
