    Palin denies affair rumours

    The McCain campaign has vigorously denied reports that Republican vice-presidential pick Sarah Palin had a steamy extramarital affair with her husband's business partner.

    The story, which appeared just hours before Mrs Palin was due to address the Republican convention today, was branded "scurrilous" by McCain chief strategist Steve Schmidt, who said it was "a vicious lie".

    "The smearing of the Palin family must end," he said.

    "The allegations contained on the cover of the National Enquirer insinuating that Governor Palin had an extramarital affair are categorically false. It is a vicious lie. "

    "The efforts of the media and tabloids to destroy this fine and accomplished public servant are a disgrace. The American people will reject it."

    The affair allegations follow revelations earlier in the week that Mrs Palin's 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, is five months pregnant and plans to marry the child's father, high-school ice-hockey player Levi Johnston.

    Mrs Palin is expected to castigate the media in her speech at 12.30pm (Melbourne time).

    The notorious National Enquirer has a reputation for digging the dirt when it comes to politicians' private lives.

    It reported that former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was having an extramarital affair - and had a child with his lover - while his wife was ill with breast cancer.

    The allegations were denied for months until the magazine ran pictures of the pair meeting in a Los Angeles hotel.
  2. Well, you can't accuse the National Enquirer of being partisan. They took down Edwards and were also early and right on Bill Clinton's affairs. Can they make it a threefer? We'll see...
  3. I know they're a tabloid, but they usually don't shy away from publishing something like this unless they have proof.

    That McCain's team has threatened litigation signals smoke. And where there's smoke....

    Well, you know.
  4. This might be the end for Mccain
  5. Here's the cover and a promise by the Enquirer of 'more to come':



    Steamy Details Of Sarah Palin Affair To Hit The Newsstand Within The Next Few Wks
    September 4, 2008

    A reliable source has tipped me off that that Enquirer has sent a number of folks to Alaska right now to cover this story. The Palin family has quite a few enemies in their hometown and there are a number of people who seem to be willing to spill the beans…Apparently they’re doing John McCain’s vetting for him.

    Though the Enquirer has released false stories in the past, The Palin Report will give them the benefit of the doubt until the complete story is released.

    It has been a number of years since they’ve released “World Weekly News” style stories. They have a ton of money to pay those who tip them off and I will keep you all updated with any pictures or text that hits the web or newsstands.
  6. Yeah, it looks like they have the goods from this cover. If the McCain campaign doesn't follow through with the litigation threats, you know they got them. That should have tipped off the MSM when Edwards never went after them for allegations about him. Game on!
  7. Over 5100 moronic posts and counting. It will be hard for you to vote for Ron Paul while you continue to pull Obama's "lever."
  8. I know you're a huge McCain fan, but why so serious?


    If the stories not true, then no worries, right?

  10. LOL :D :D
