Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa, But Who Cares?

Yes, It's my fault
(But I'm not going to beat a hole through my chest begging forgiveness)

What's the deal? Are the Palins divorcing or not? There are some strange things about all this: the links go like this:

Alaska Report:

Palin lawyer threatens to serve papers at kindergarten, then balks

ImmoralMinority blogs breaks Palin divorce story Updated 11:17am AKDT By Dennis Zaki

Thomas Van Flein, Sarah Palin's lawyer, threatened Saturday to serve libel papers at a kindergarten to the owner of the highly trafficked "ImmoralMinority" blog for a divorce story on the Palins. The blog was given until 3pm Saturday to remove the story and post a retraction. The blogger stands by the story.

So, I'll admit I fell for the rhetoric. I'm sorry if anyone I steered toward the ImmoralMinority and they felt that it was all a waste of time. However, earlier this year, The National Enquirer published a piece about Sarah Palin's infidelity with Todd Palin's business partner.

Todd Palin no longer has a business partner.

OK, look: I don't like conspiracy theory stories, so why should I attach myself to this kind of story? 1. It's not a conspiracy. 2. Palin has been doing some erratic things lately: her impromptu resignation speech wasn't very coherent. 3. Palin did not wear her wedding ring during her last four appearances.

Apropos of that last angle, I wonder if Palin will say simply: The dog ate her wedding ring.

And no, there was no coverage of it on the major media. Hmmm. Curiouser and Curiouser.

Her publisher and ghost writer must be getting very, very nervous.
