    The Iron Dog is the longest, toughest snowmachine race in the world. It is truly a test of endurance, not only for the equipment but for the participants. Two men with past success in the event have teamed together this year to try to capture the title together. All eyes are on Team 11: Todd Palin and Tyler Huntington. Palin has won the Iron Dog four times and Huntington has come out on top twice. Now, they are hoping their amalgamation will translate into another championship. This week Team 11 appeared on Iron Dog Insider, a special program on...

    (Reuters) - Nine Nobel Peace laureates, including retired South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, on Monday called on television network NBC to cancel its "Stars Earn Stripes" reality show, calling it a bid to "sanitize war by likening it to an athletic competition." The competition show, due to air for the first time on Monday evening, puts eight celebrities such as singer Nick Lachey and politician Sarah Palin's husband Todd, through military-style training, including helicopter drops and long-range weapons firing.

    NBC is premiering a new competition show later this summer, bringing the likes of Sarah Palin‘s husband Todd Palin and singer Nick Lachey together— with former Army General and Democratic presidential hopeful Wesley Clark as co-host. The show, Stars Earn Stripes, describes itself as “a fierce and emotionally charged new competition show honoring America’s armed forces.” Each celebrity contestant will be paired up with an “operative” (meaning: former military or law enforcement member) and make their way through missions “inspired by real military exercises.” Per the press release: “From helicopter drops to long range weapons fire – the competitors will...

    Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, is among those competing in NBC’s new reality series “Stars Earn Stripes,” the network revealed Tuesday. This is not entirely surprising, given that “SES” exec producer Mark Burnett also exec-produced Sarah’s TLC reality series “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” And late last year, word around Hollywood was that Sarah and Burnett were pitching a reality series about Todd’s career as a championship snowmobile racer. Apparently, there were no takers. Maybe more surprising, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, the former supreme allied commander in Europe for NATO and a 2004 presidential candidate, is going to host the show with “Entertainment...

    If America's top hockey mom decides to make an endorsement in the Republican presidential primary, it doesn't sound like Mitt Romney will win that sweepstakes. (As Katie notes below, Palin's husband has decided to back Newt). Via Fox News: Her logic is certainly worth considering. The Democrat/MSM playbook against Romney isn't an especially well kept secret. Cast him as an out of touch, greedy one-percenter who "likes being able to fire people." That would be the formula: craven blame shift and nuclear class warfare. If Republican voters believe that dual strategy will eclipse Obama's woeful record as president -- and...

    Todd Palin, husband of former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, has endorsed Newt Gingrich in the Republican presidential primary, giving the former House Speaker a much-needed boost among Tea Party conservatives. Palin told ABC News that he had not spoken to Gingrich or anyone from his campaign, but appreciated that the former speaker had fought through scrutiny similar to that placed on his wife during her unsuccessful vice presidential bid in 2008. Palin also applauded Gingrich for fighting through the en masse resignation of his senior staff last summer, saying his campaign has “burst out of...

But Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and John McCain’s 2008 Republican running mate, has yet to decide “who is best able to go up against Barack Obama,” Todd Palin said. Palin said he has not spoken to Gingrich or anyone from the former House speaker’s campaign. But he said he respects Gingrich for what he went through in the 1990s and compared that scrutiny in public life to what Sarah Palin went through during her run for the vice presidency.

One big question she will have to answer is why she quit after only two years as governor. The question came up as Palin and husband Todd swooped through the Iowa State Fair the other day. A woman, who identified herself as an Alaskan, questioned Todd about why his wife quit. He told her to watch "The Undefeated" -- the movie about Palin made by a conservative filmmaker. They got into it, and the exchange ended with...

    “Todd is a good dad”.

Never slothful or lazy, Todd is always by his wife’s side and works hard to provide for his family whether it be on a Bristol Bay salmon run or in the oil fields...

    Looks like the First Dude is off the hook. The Anchorage Police Department blasted the National Enquirer’s recent report that Todd Palin is embroiled in a sex scandal involving an extramarital affair with a massage therapist who belonged to a prostitution ring. "It was just guilt by innuendo, nothing else," Lt. Dave Parker told the Daily News on Wednesday. "There’s not one scintilla of evidence that Todd Palin had anything to do with this." The Enquirer claimed 36-year-old Shailey Tripp was arrested for maintaining a house of prostitution in March and that cops had confiscated physical evidence that could tie...

    Texas for Sarah Palin ^ | January 25, 2011 at 10:35 PM CST | Josh Painter
    According to infotainment site TMZ, the Anchorage Police Department has released a statement explaining although they have seized evidence in a massage parlor sting operation, none of the evidence shows any sort of link between a massage therapist named Shailey Tripp and Todd Palin. Not only does the APD statement directly refute allegations made in the tabloid National Enquirer and spread across the internet by leftist and gossip web sites, but the police department also revealed that the Enquirer published their lies without ever bother to contact police officials to verify their misinformation. The website Uncoverage.net finds a curious coincidence...

    The House of Palin is crumbling, at least if you're willing to believe the most notorious liars in media, the National Enquirer, who report today that Todd Palin, the famed "First Dude" and father of five, cheated on Sarah Palin, potential presidential hopeful, with a "female massage therapist who was busted for prostitution!" Shailey Tripp, the woman in question, does at the very least exist in Wasilla, Alaska, but beyond that, the tabloid's tip comes from an anonymous email address, thepalinmorals@hotmail.com, who writes: "My sources reveal that a massage therapist and computer technologist, SHAILEY TRIPP, had an affair with Todd...

    After Bristol Palin brought 'Dancing With the Stars' unprecedented buzz and ratings, it sounds like the show's producers are dying to go back to the Palin well. This time, they want Bristol's dad. "They want him big time," a source told E! Onlione. "They'd love Sarah, but they don't think that will ever happen, so why not go for the dad." The show is also after another politician's daughter, Meghan McCain, as well. Which would mean, if producers have their way, that family members of the 2008 GOP Presidential ticket would be instead be competing against one another. Weird.

    (Graph at link) Conservatives4Palin(C4P) today reported that Gov. Palin’s internet search traffic is six times greater than the traffic for Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee, and Pawlenty. C4P’s story is based on Nate Silver’s “The 800-Pound Mama Grizzly Problem” published last night in the New York Times. The numbers are even more staggering when each candidate’s search traffic is analyzed. Silver wrote: Ms. Palin’s search traffic, since the start of 2010, is roughly 16 times that of Mitt Romney, 14 times that of Newt Gingrich, 38 times that of Mike Huckabee, and 87 times that of Mr. Pawlenty. (It is about six...
  • Haley Balks on Endorsing Palin in 2012

    South Carolina Gov.-elect Nikki Haley had warm words this morning for Sarah Palin, whose backing was crucial in netting her the Republican primary nomination. But there's one word Haley wouldn't utter about the possible presidential contender: "endorse." Asked on NBC's Today show this morning whether she would back Palin in a potential 2012 presidential bid, Haley demurred. "You know, I think the responsibility to the citizens of South Carolina is that I look at the environment, I look at the slate of candidates that are running, and I make the choice that is best for the people of this state,"...
