One might have assumed that after three years of glaring media attention, all of Sarah Palin’s skeletons had been whisked out of the closet by now. But Joe McGinniss — the well-known author who moved in next to the Palin family as he worked on his soon-to-released exposé, The Rogue: Searching for The Real Sarah Palin — apparently found out some pretty good stuff. And by “pretty good,” we mean some of the most salacious things you could possibly imagine. According to the National Enquirer, which talked to “[p]ublishing sources familiar with the contents” of the book:
• Palin had a one-night stand in 1987 with future NBA All-Star Glen Rice while he was junior at the University of Michigan. Just a rumor? Not exactly. “McGinniss quotes Rice as confirming the one-night stand,” the Enquirer says. Furthermore, “Todd was very much in the picture at the time and the couple married just nine months later.”
• Palin was seen “snorting cocaine off an overturned 55-gallon oil drum while snowmobiling with pals.” The Enquirer report doesn’t say when this happened.
• The Daily News says the book “also repeated allegations — denied in the past by Palin — that she had a six-month affair with her husband’s business partner in the mid-’90s.”
Two thoughts: One, Palin will dismiss all these revelations as lies perpetrated by the liberal media, which is on a crusade to destroy her because they can’t stand the thought of a powerful conservative woman from rural America. And two, we are very disappointed in Glen Rice for not bringing this up sooner.
