Sorry Dudes No Hot Sarah Palin Affairs On Record

This little polar bear is tired of your rumormongering.Oh goodness everybody’s panties were in a lather on Friday when it was revealed that some former business pal of Todd Palin had asked to have his divorce records sealed — presumably because they contained page after blistering page of descriptions of hot sexing with Todd Palin’s wife, a pretty lady who is running for vice president. After all, the National Equirer said she’d had an affair with a business associate of her husband, and how many business associates can a guy have?

Alas, there’s no there there, at least not with this associate, Scott Richter.

The noble reader-monkeys at The Smoking Gun went through all 98 tedious pages of Richter’s divorce filing and found nothing salacious or even very interesting in there. Basically the guy just wanted his records sealed because reporters were bothering him, but the only way he knows the Palins is he owns a cabin with them somewhere.

A judge denied the motion to seal the records, noting that “There is no legal basis for the request.”

  1. Serolf Divad

    So what you’re saying is that Palin and Richter were discreet and so no one found out about the affair?

  2. Jerk Cade

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Or something like that. The Enquirer didn’t say it was Richter.

    I reeeeely want this to be true ’cause I want to watch the thugs say things like “Sarah and Todd’s decision to put this adultery behind them and reconcile for the sake of saving their marriage and providing a stable home for their pregnant children proves they have the values that America needs.”

    And then my grandma’s head will explode.

    [re=88519]Jerk Cade[/re]: It will no doubt come and will take that hideous form. MY queer old head will explode.

  4. Slutty_Chola_Cobbler

    We need something on this bitch, ’cause y’all done know if she and the other idiot are in power this country will be fucked!
    You know.. like Alaska is close to Russia and no sex education for the teens.. I’ll be having friggin’ 1/2 Russian retarded babies named Trailer Vladimir, Truck Porfiry, Pistol Kalishnikov…

  5. Gopherit v2.0

    [re=88519]Jerk Cade[/re]: Didn’t you mean “Absence of evidence isn’t evidence of abstinence? Just sayin’.

    She’s a hot-blooded snowbilly, but she’s also fertile as all get-out. DNA test the whole brood, I say. I bet none of them are Todd’s.

  6. youknew

    Even if this one isn’t true, I bet it’s out there somewhere. She looks like that woman you go to church with who’s screwing everybody’s husband Monday to Saturday and smiling in your face on Sunday, not to mention talking shit about you and all her girlfriends.

    Come on Alaska, tell us about it.

  7. columnv

    The Nat’l Enquirer cover is titled, “Sarah Palin’s Dark Secrets”. Should we not suggest a change to, “Sarah Palin’s Sambo Secrets”?

  8. magic titty

    Snark off: you know what’s bugging me about the current status of this election fiasco? is the inference that when a person of color reaches a certain ascendancy, they suddenly have no idea what they’re doing, and not capable of ‘leading’, and all of this other bullshit that attempts to re-dye a racist connotation. suddenly now, obama is not qualified, and he needs someone to look over his shoulder and mentor him, and let us send in grampappy mccain to play father figure to the negro who got too big for his britches.

    fuck this fucking country.

    we can resume snark now.

  9. Advocatus_Diaboli

    I just hope it doesn’t take the Enquirer as long with this story as it did with Edwards.

    Well, if they want to wait until the middle of October, though, I think I can wait that long.

  10. Gopherit v2.0

    [re=88565]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: Not me. I hate the cynicism and contempt the Republicans are showing for Americans by picking Palin. I hope they find Palin is the worst of Jerry Springer and Reality TV all in one rancid little ball. I say bring on the putrescence that is the McCain-Palin ticket, and let the morons choke on it. I believe in Bell curves…..there’s just no way half of
    the voting public can be stupid enough to swallow this garbage.

    Oh yeah, Sarah Palin is a vapid, lying whore.

  11. Jingo

    So Scott Richter and Sarah Palin did not have “sexual relations.” I, and my friend Bill Clinton, would like to know if investigators have looked for any stained dresses.

    I guess there is a bright side to all of this. I will save the money I was going to use to buy every Palin Sex Scandal issue of the National Enquirer to put them under the wipers of every car I see with a McCain/Palin sticker on it.

  12. savage

    this is a true story…i feel compelled to unlurk and tell it!
    I sit next to a woman at work who has a friend who has a friend who caught caribou barbie in bed with her husband up there in that wasilla.
    Does that make me 5 degrees from sarah???

  13. gurukalehuru

    [re=88963]savage[/re]: When you say that the friend of the friend of your friend at work caught Caribou Barbie in bed with her husband, does the “her” refer to the friend of the friend of the friend at work, or Caribou Barbie. If the latter, salacious as the story may be, it does not prove her to be the republislut we are all hoping she turns out to be.
    If the former, whoooaaa Nellie!

  14. savage

    gurukalehuru: sadly, C.B. was in bed with the husband, not the friend. It did cause a divorce. I asked my co-worker why no public disclosure, mud-slinging etc. but she doesn’t know.

  15. YellowSnow

    [re=88504]natteringnaybob[/re]: Yeah, I heard while they were unsealing the records he done switched them with somebody nice. We demand answers people! Why is this being covered up from us?
