Sarah Palin's husband Todd 'considering divorce'
Source: Telegraph.co.uk

Sarah Palin has been hit by more negative reports about her private life, this time suggesting that she is heading for divorce. The rumours, which have surfaced before and been furiously denied, were reported in the National Enquirer, which did not name its source.

The magazine claimed Todd Palin was "fed up" following the publication last week of Joe McGinniss's book The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.A friend reportedly told the magazine: "The final straw was McGinniss quoting Sarah's brother Chuckie telling a friend they don't have a marriage."

Mr Palin has condemned the book as "full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears." In a scathing review the New York Times noted that the book contained "caustic, unsubstantiated gossip about the Palins, often from unnamed sources."Last year, Mrs Palin reacted angrily to a similar tabloid report that she was heading for divorce. She was said to have been "steaming" about the suggestion.

1. If true, good move on Todd's part as far as equitable distribution of assets
before they're gone.

2. If it really was "full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears" then wouldn't he stick by her?
guess those "disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears." are more truth than not. :evilgrin:

3. God...Do you know how many TV networks would line up to follow
a single Sarah Palin in the dating world? For producers of reality TV, this is called "Death by Orgasm"

10. His friends probably won't let it get out of his mind either.
Tawd seems like a bigot to me, with bigot friends to go along with it.

I'm sure this has been very hard for the macho Tawd.

11. She should move to Jamaica
Plenty of big, black Anacondas that would be glad to give it a go. A couple of weeks at Hedonism II would give her such a permanent smile, she would end up with a speech impediment.

14. No offense, but why would you wish her privacy? If there's anyone who screams "look at me!" ,
(and my family)it's Sarah Palin.

... I can not bring up enough hate for her to want her and TAWD to hurt for just being human.

15. Why? She doesn't wish the right to privacy on women who wish to make their
own medical decisions regarding pregnancy.

8. Repeating, gossip does not equate to "untruth". Most everything Levi said
was true. Same goes for McGINNIS in this book, as with Kitty KELLEY in her books.


McGINNIS says that Todd has said he and Quitter MUST have had sex FOUR times since they have 4 kids, but beyond that... not so much. She sleeps in the bedroom with the door closed; he sleeps on an old leather, filthy couch in the living room, something like that.

Bahbwah WAHWAH was incredibly corporate to McGINNIS, repeating the Quitter/BecKKK talking points about spying on the PALINs from next door, oogling Quitter as she cut the grass in shorts, the works. Bahbwah was totally the non-journalist she is. She said that the times she has seen the PALINs together they looked very affectionate. McGINNIS said something like, yeah they have the personal appearances down pat. Otherwise, in the book they drop the F-bomb and scream "DIVORCE" at each other all day every day.

17. and We Wonder Why We Can't Get St. Sarah To Go Away
Because every bit of her life, the lives of her children and her the life of her husband get plastered on every web site, every media outlet, every tabloid.

Palin is done as a political force but both the left and the right continue to keep her in the spotlight insuring the the Alaskan Grifters wont be short of fame or money anytime soon.

19. I hope not,
Because if there is a divorce, this board will be filled will post after endless breathless post about it. I swear, Palin's fifteen minutes would be long gone by now except for the fact Dems keep coming back to her, extending it into overtime.

23. he wont divorce her maybe ever.
MONEY. That ties it together. They both lose at least half in alaska. (50/50 state). With all that money why would he, he can just lead his own life away from her.
If he does divorce her its will be when her income starts to fall.

22. Todd is nothing without her
she's the gravy and the train. She's the mindless conservative du jour. Unless he's braindead.

32. Todd Palin will never divorce her - he's being paid well to stay right where he is at
I doubt if Sarah Palin wasn't such a big media star raking in the big bucks that these 2 would still be together.

Todd role is simple - Watch the Kids, keep is affairs private and look good in a suit when she needs a photo opportunity.

Maybe it's just another money-grabbing ploy.
