Explosion In Alaska! Family Values Tumble Into The Sea!

Ah, the wondrous facility of the web: within a scant five hours, a rumor becomes widely read, within six hours, it's "the truth" and by seven hours...? If our ancestors saw fortunes fall within hours. We can see ideologies and natioal images teeter on the brink of oblivion within minutes.

The mere mention of Sarah and "First Dude's" possible divorce has set the net on its ear. Even greater, the possibility that there was infidelity on both sides! And The National Enquirer, that bastion of functional illiteracy warned all of us about the affair Sarah was having with Todd's (later ex) business partner:


In a world exclusive The NATIONAL ENQUIRER names GOP VP Candidate Sarah Palin's secret lover!
No less than three members of the man’s family including one by sworn affidavit have claimed that Sarah Palin engaged in an extramarital affair with hus­band Todd’s former business partner, Brad Hanson.
“Todd found out about the affair and was so mad he broke up their partnership at the snowmobile dealership"
- says a close friend
Well, you have to say one thing for Sarah Palin: THIS GIRL CAN RUN!
...from just about anything! Then again, she has plenty to run from: Trig's maternity, Bristol's pregnancy, Levi Johnston's mouth, alleged ethics violations, and any sane person who knew that she would have been dumber than Dan Quayle had she won the vice-presidency.

from Huffington Post:

Pray tell! What will the Christian Right say? Has the world's most famous "hockey mom" flushed her "family values" card down the toilet?

O.K., enough of cheap shots, but...

If the divorce is acrimonious, we'll be eager to see who sides with whom. The morning will bring...what? Who will react? Franklin Graham,?Tony Perkins? James Dobson? Pat Robertson? Then there's the Republican Party. How long will it take for the Republican Party to distance themselves from all of this? (Shudder) Michael Steele make a comment?

No matter who thinks what, the wheels of fame, politics and society will still be turning. And not in Palin's favor.

You betcha!
