Way back in 2007, when Wonkette was literally the only national media actually covering Sarah Palin and her ridiculous role as John McCain’s vice-presidential candidate was still just a stain in Bill Kristol’s underroos, the Wasilla grifter was already planning her divorce from amiable extremist dolt Todd Palin. Emails finally released on Thursday show Sarah was scheming even then, and wondering if her divorce from Todd — a laborer on the North Slope oil fields — would somehow lead to charges of conflict of interest because of Governor Sarah’s “drill baby drill” policies. None of this makes any sense, because Sarah Palin is a lifelong idiot. But she is consistently phony and amoral, when it comes to “family values,” at least!
The Washington Post saves this only interesting part for the last paragraphs of its article:
The emails indicate her job had taken a toll on her marriage long before she even became McCain’s running mate.
In a Sept. 26, 2007, email to Kris Perry and her husband Todd, titled “Marital Problems,” Palin writes: “So speaking of… If we, er, when we get a divorce, does that quell “conflict of interest” accusations about BP?” Her husband was a former BP employee on the North Slope.
So wait, she copied Todd on this email? We hate to give Sarah Palin any credit at all, for anything, but this actually sounds like a cheap, sarcastic joke and not actual plans to get divorced. Why does the Lame Stream Media fail to get Sarah’s snarling, half-serious attempts at humor? [Washington Post]
