Sarah Palin snorted cocaine off 55 gallon oil drum and had affairs with NBA star and ...

Complete Headline: Sarah Palin snorted cocaine off 55 gallon oil drum and had affairs with NBA star and husband's business partner: Sensational claims in new book

Sarah Palin snorted cocaine off a 55 gallon oil drum while snowmobiling with friends and had elicit affairs with a top NBA star and one of her husband's business partners, a new book sensationally claims.

In revelations which could strike a devastating blow to the controversial politician's hopes of joining the 2012 presidential race, Mrs Palin is said to have snorted the class A drug off an oil drum with her husband.

Joe McGinniss's book The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, which is due to be published on September 20, also alleges that the former governor of Alaska is far from the traditional family woman she claims to be.

Mrs Palin, 47, had a one-night stand with Miami Heat basketball star Glen Rice less than a year before she eloped with her husband, the book claims.

She is said to have met the 6ft 8ins player in 1987 when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska and she worked as a sports reporter for KTUU television.

It is also claimed that she carried on an affair with Brad Hanson, who ran a snowmobile dealership with her husband Todd - a betrayal which led to Todd dissolving their business.

Don't agree with your views on Governor Palin, but we are on this site to share our opinions.

I wish you well with your treatment. I've been through two Chemo cycles myself for Leukemia, so I will certainly be praying for you. Keep the faith my FRiend.

The University of Michigan Wolverines played in the Great Alaska Shootout (the pre-season basketball tournament held in Anchorage) in the fall of 1987: http://blog.mlive.com/wolverines/2007/08/schedule_announced_for_great_a.html

So Sarah Palin and Glenn Rice *could* have met. But that does not mean that she had sex with him. And if she did, they were both single and above the age of consent, so I don’t see why the scumbag author claims that the affair was “illicit” (which the idiot misspelled as “elicit”). Is the author hankering for the days of state miscegenation laws (which were never in place in Alaska)?

The tournament where the author claims Palin and Rice met was played in Alaska in November of 1987. So your timeline does not rule out the possibility it COULD have happened. I am not giving credence to the story, just pointing out the logistics are not impossible.

This is such a boring allegation. The National Enquirer has been peddling stories about Sarah’s so-called affairs since she first appeared on the national scene in 2008. None of them have caught fire and this won’t either.

Conservatives have long ago caught on to the media’s games and short of murder, she won’t be hurt by this.

No one is more kind, generous or human than Yours Truly.

You will have to take my word for that but it happens to be true.

I just find the hype surrounding Sarah Palin MOST amusing.

She is on a train-—or is is a bus?-—to nowhere. Nobody outside a narrow slice of the conservative wing of the GOP sees her as presidential timber. Yet she has a cultlike following which makes the Ron Paul people look tame.

Thinking that makes me an inhuman monster? No, I’m just tired of being hustled by attention-hustlers and political slicksters.

“You realize that it’s almost impossible for your assertion to be true, don’t you?”

No, it is not.

I pointed out that I knew people in school who used drugs, but not in my circle of friends. Can I prove a negative? Of course not. Is it highly likely I am right? Yes. Some of them used drugs before becoming Christians, but not after. These are people I had as room mates, that are still in touch after 30 years, people I deployed with and lived in tents with.

Oddly enough, there is still a large percentage of people who have never used illegal drugs. It is entirely possible to know 50 people, all of whom have never used drugs.

The idea it is impossible is sad. And false. We weirdos do exist, and many of us have each others as friends.

And one of the reasons Palin resonates with many is that she seems a lot like the folks we grew up with and had as friends.

Your kidding. I must have missed that.

That debate was a Tea Party debate. The Tea Party is naturally against an elected official using executive orders to bypass the will of the people. Especially if he has people working for him that lobby for what that official is using the EO for.

What is it about that people don’t get?

A big deal is made out of how Bachmann used the little girls to describe it.

What really stunk was Rick saying he just didn’t want them to get cancer. That is a typical lib excuse for doing something that stinks.

That is what smells. Glossing it over is disgusting.

Just like with Mrs. Palin. Lesser minded or visioned folks are always declaring Palin stupid, out of it, or whatever.

It's somehow rooted to the same emotionally delusional half-logic that informs affirmative action. The thinking that a heart surgeon or lawyer making it to degree and certificate by social promotion is actually a good surgeon or adept lawyer. That dynamic in the case of the most gifted and most able often becomes a utter denial of their abilities, and a 180-degree off bold replacement-identity for their public persona that claims stupidity where they are true geniuses and cold-heartedness and viciousness when they are in actuality the most caring, modest and respectful of others.

Why do such completely opposite bold lies work and take hold in some part of the public? Only because they are completely opposite. Like a compass needle while pointing North also points South. Even the complete negative of their true gifts and extraordinarily developed abilities still defines the gifts and abilities, by inversion.

For example when a person says "turn LEFT!" the driver also considers a right turn as well. Or when one mentions the wholly evil Hitler, we also think of the millions of good and decent Jews he ordered killed.

She has been among the top three prospective GOP candidates in polling all year, has unquestionably the strongest base in the party, has been the most successful critic of Obama over the last three years—and hasn’t yet announced.

Also, she’s the only candidate among our realistic top three who doesn’t have an embarrassing history of trying to mandate healthcare solutions on her constituency when Obamacare is the biggest club that the GOP has to wallop Obama with in 2012.

>>Remember the Nobel Peace Prize day on FR?

Um, not to butt in, but I’ve never heard of that. What was that about? Just curious. <<

The day that Obama got the Nobel Prize, people started posting “Breaking News” threads. Everything from “Obama wins Dancing With the Stars” to “Obama wins the Hogwarts House Cup” There were even explanations that looked like real news stories, i.e. “In a surprise upset, Obama takes the Gold medal for unevenbars without breaking a sweat.”

We had been so down in the dumps from they election until then, that everyone’s humor started running. We had a blast. Even the mods got into it. They left them all up and at noon when Rush came on, he picked them up and started announcing.

It was a brilliant day!

Perry's schmaltzy "compassionate conservatism" annoyed me. I hated it when Bush did it and I don't like it when this guy does it. I think we are dealing with Texans who support Perry right or wrong. I really believe that. If you dare suggest he's not the best candidate, they go ballistic.

The malice directed at Bachmann is unbelievable. I can only imagine the vitriol if Sarah Palin gets in.

No, not at all. Honestly, I hope that it is not true. If true, many social conservatives will not be pleased to learn that she engaged in premarital sex and, probably worse, used cocaine. The GOP needs social conservatives to win elections all across this country and, if these allegations were generally accepted as true, it would drive a huge wedge belween Palin and many social conservatives and ultimately hurt the conservative movement.

Unless Palin admits these lapses, or there is video tape of them, then her word is as good as we will get.

The idiot writer asserts they are true, and we also know he’s a vicious a-hole.

YOu think writers and political agents are not going to lie about her or any other Republican?

Additionally, many of us committed grave wrongs in the past and have repented and changed our lives. Even if she did those two things (which is completely unknown at this point), to me it’s not such a big deal since she obviously has not led a life of sin.

Addiitonally, I tend to not believe them. I think the author is most likely lying.
