DJ! Does Saturday Sarah

Our friend Audrey at Enormous Thriving Plants has a regular feature called Saturday Sarah. Here's today's.

DJ! is forced to join in today with this from the National Enquirer, Todd Palin caught in sleazy sex scandal!!!11!!!!11! (caps theirs)
SARAH PALIN's husband TODD is caught up in a sleazy sex scandal, The ENQUIRER has learned!

Political bloggers are digging into incredible claims that the "First Dude" - father of the couple's five children - cheated on his wife with a female massage therapist who was busted for prostitution!

The scandal not only has the potential to sabotage Palin's possible 2012 White House bid, but also threatens to destroy her marriage, sources say.

While the story heats up on the internet, The ENQUIRER has uncovered official documents confirming the woman's arrest, and learned police have confiscated physical evidence that could tie Todd to an alleged extramarital affair.

We have also uncovered documents that show the woman - identified by bloggers as Shailey Tripp - contributed free massages to an anonymous person working for Sarah's campaign for governor of Alaska.

While representatives for Todd Palin vehemently deny he cheated on his wife, allegations of his extramarital affair surfaced on Jan. 4 when an anonymous tipster sent out messages to news outlets making the allegation using the e-mail address

"My sources reveal that a massage therapist and computer technologist, SHAILEY TRIPP, had an affair with Todd Palin that lead (sic) to her arrest March of 2010," claimed the anonymous e-mail.

"According to the tenants in the building of her offices, they saw Todd come and go often and heard noises that sounded like someone was having sex. It was the same tenants who called the police on her."

It goes on. Well, it is the National Equirer.

Oh. Wait. There's an update (emphasis mine):
Since the first hours of this breaking story ignited a firestorm of controversy key mainstream media The New York Daily News, Vanity Fair magazine, Yahoo News, The Huffington Post and Forbes Magazine, among others, have cited The ENQUIRER's bombshell investigation into the Palin cheating scandal.

In fact, Forbes suggested that "in the Palin-built political arena of 2011, Todd Palin’s affair might be just the ticket Sarah needs to be the first single mother in the Oval Office."

That's not JJ's take. When I tweeted the link a little while ago this is what she said:
I was wondering how the GOP would solve their Palin Problem.

And, if true (must put that in, I suppose), there will be no end of fun coz we know what dirty fighters the Palins are. Just imagine the 'he said's' and 'she said's'. And the 'well, she did it too's' and 'well, he started it's'.

Shailey "Tripp" ... now we know where the Grandkid got his weirdass name.

Ever since it was revealed that Todd's nickname is "Dude", it's hard not picture him as the bath-robed lead character in "The Big Lebowski" movie. Just a matter of time before he got an offer and couldn't help wandering off to the nearest cash machine. These yappy moral majority family values types just can't practice what they preach.

Good eye, batter! Didn't even occur to me.

k'in - sacrilege! You cannot defile the wonderfulness of The Dude with The Todd, man.

Heh, well I've been wondering for quite awhile how the GOP would solve their Palin Problem. It's got to be driving the establishment GOP nuts that Palin could win the primary, but in a General she's totally unelectable. I can see why they'd want to shuffle her out of the picture somehow. This story, if true (and that's a pretty big "if"), appeals to the conspiracy theorist in me... was it a set-up? etc.

That said, I think we're seeing the decline of Palin fascination anyway. Conservatives who were afraid to say anything against her for so long are slowly changing their tune, especially after Tucson. Her most lasting legacy will be all the babies that were born between 2009-2011 and given names like "Carrot Crackpipe".

Yeah, Palin seems to be a fading stain. However! There is now Michele "Batshit" Bachmann rising up to make a grab for the title of "Most insane token candidate that the Republicans could try and use to their advantage in '12." Okay, that's a little long and she probably needs a nickname. My dream is that she and Palin run as a pair.

JJ said...

Mrs. Bitch - Palin/Bachmann 2012! It doesn't get any better than that.

Although Bachmann does seem to be trying to appropriate the teabag-adorned crown from Sister Sarah, I expect that once she makes her teabagger response to the SOTU speech she too will be shuffled out of the picture somehow. The GOP leadership isn't completely insane -- they know that in a General, these two are about as electable as a couple of turnips.

Too bad though, it would be a lot of LOLs.

Ironic that a Tripp is involved. I wonder if she is any relation to a certain Linda Tripp?
