A highly anticipated biography of Sarah Palin alleges the Tea Party politician and former Republican vice presidential candidate used cocaine and marijuana, and had a long affair with her husband's business partner.

The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin by the respected if controversial author, Joe McGinniss, claims Palin was seen snorting cocaine off the top of a 55-gallon drum while snowmobiling with friends. It also alleges she smoked marijuana with a professor while at Mat-Su College in Alaska.

The book, scheduled for release in the US next week, quotes a Palin family friend as alleging that Palin's husband, Todd, also used cocaine and that he was "on the end of the straw plenty".

McGinniss, who made his name as the young author of a study of Richard Nixon's campaign, The Selling of the President 1968, angered Palin by moving in next door to her home in Wasilla, Alaska. Palin warned him to not to spy on her family, saying she suspected he was trying to look in her daughter's window from his property.

The book claims to substantiate allegations previously denied by Palin that she had an affair for six months in the mid-1990s with her husband's business partner. McGinniss writes that the relationship put considerable pressure on Palin's marriage.

Anticipation of the book's release has been heightened by a deal McGinniss made with Garry Trudeau, author of the Doonesbury cartoon, to include extracts in the strip read by an imaginary Fox News reporter who moved in next door to McGinniss.

Some US newspapers have declined to run the strip which includes lines claiming that "Palin isn't comfortable in the presence of dark skinned people".

I work with a 26 year old that did a report on the former Alaska Governor that did a high school report on her about 10 years ago.  Before I read this post, he said these kinds of things were "known" when she was on the town council committee of Wasilla, Alaska.

 

The Tea Party will deny reality and say this attack is by "Liberal Socialist/Communists".  They either can't see what is happening or unwilling to cope with reality.

 

"You are entitled to your own opinion, but not you own facts"

I didn't know that about her - thanks for the article link.

What we have to remember is that this rhetoric comes from all sides of the political spectrum. Here we have one book written by one guy (who is very well known to write inflammatory, controversial material) making allegations about events that may or may not have occurred years ago.

 

I am not defending Sarah Palin; rather, I am defending critical thought and free thinking. Should we really be forming an opinion based on the writings of one man? Or, should we check for other sources and corroborating witnesses? Sarah Palin has already made a run at the vice presidency. Does anyone find it odd that this 'story' is just now coming out? It seems to me that these allegations would have surfaced long ago.

 

There are two things that disturb me: Sarah Palin as US President is one. But rush to judgment and lack of critical thought scares me much more.

 

Be well-

I wouldn't be surprised if Michelle bachmann used blow.  Look at her eyes.  She said Time used a bad photo of her, but her eyes always look like that.  I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of those politicians used drugs (except Hillary Clinton, she's always looked clean) - even the ones who comment on Fox News.  There's a lot of drug use in this country, why should politicians be exempt?
For some reason I'm not even surprised to see something like this.  I feel like, more than not, these politicians don't practice what they preach.  From George Bush to Eliot Spitzer, sex and drugs somehow always seem to be kept in the dark, while in the light, these people are supposed to be representing just the opposite.  Its actually very sad that this country cannot recognize the difference between a manipulator and a genuine humanitarian that cares about their country.  I've always thought Sarah Palin was a joke, and this proves why I had those intuitions.  Don't get me wrong, sex and drugs have their place, but not if you're a politician or governor representing the people.  Its just morally and ethically hypocritical and wrong.
All kinds of sex have their place, with the consent of and consideration for everyone involved. I would be more likely to vote for a politician who was openly a swinger, or polyamorous, or otherwise going beyond the narrow conventional ideals in being true to themselves. The problem isn't sex, it's deceit and hypocrisy... and a puritanical culture that contributes to it.
