Sarah Palin Headed For Divorce Court, Husband Says ‘Impossible To Live Together’

The New York Daily News is reporting Todd Palin has filed for divorce from Sarah Palin, the former half-term Governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.

Sarah Palin and her husband have reportedly split after more than 30 years together.

The former Alaska governor’s husband, Todd, filed for divorce in Anchorage Superior Court Friday, citing an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife,” according to the Anchorage Daily News.

Sarah and Todd Palin are reportedly seeking joint legal custody of their child, Trig; their other four children — Bristol, Willow, Piper and Track — are all adults.

Sarah Palin served as governor of Alaska from 2006 until her resignation in 2009, during which time she ran an unsuccessful campaign as John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election.

Sarah Palin Not Invited To John McCain’s Funeral

NBC News is reporting that former half-term governor of Alaska and 2008 Republicans vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, has not been invited to the funeral of her former running-mate, Sen. John McCain.

The Palin camp apparently issued a statement which read, “Out of respect to Senator McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point. The Palin family will always cherish their friendship with the McCains and hold those memories dear.”

Meanwhile, McCain famously asked both of his presidential rivals – Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama – to not only attend the funeral but eulogize him at the service.

I’m just gonna leave this riiiiiight here.

Sarah Palin: I Would Run For Office Again “In A Heartbeat”

Has it really been almost ten years since John McCain inflicted former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, on the U.S.?

After her spectacular splash, crash and burn as the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008, Palin spent years stretching out her 15 minutes in the spotlight.

Talk about not getting off the national stage…

Well, it looks like Palin wants more time in the limelight as she recently told Fox News host Mark Levin she would run for public office again “in a heartbeat.”

“Oh yes. I would do it again in a heartbeat,” said Palin on the Life, Liberty and Levin show. “I will push back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not during the campaign. I would’ve pushed back and gotten more truth out there, but yes.”

The problem is no one wants Palin to run for anything.

Palin also shared that the negative press she received while running in 2008 was a gosh-darn “surprise” since her ratings in her home state of Alaska were “very high.”

Additionally, she was “mostly shocked” by how little the McCain-Palin campaign did to defend her.

“That aspect was perplexing and frustrating,” she continued. “But I have learned a lot in these 10 years and I don’t put up with as much as I had back then and I don’t let things bother me. I obviously didn’t let a lot of things bother me then either otherwise I’d be crawled up in a fetal position under that table and just want to go away.”

As we all recall, Palin’s missteps became daily fodder for political pundits.

From her woeful lack of foreign policy knowledge to straying off-message while stumping on the campaign trail to pricey wardrobe receipts.

All of that and more was chronicled in the best-selling book, Game Change, which was adapted into an HBO political drama film of the same name in 2012.

Sarah Palin: Paul Ryan’s Political Career “Is Over” For Not Supporting Donald Trump

Sarah Palin, the former half-term governor of Alaska, tells CNN’s Jake Tapper that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s “political career is over, but for a miracle, because he has so disrespected the will of the people.”

This is in reference to the news this past week that Ryan told the press he isn’t prepared “yet” to get behind Donald Trump as the 2016 Republican presidential nominee.

Palin posits that Ryan may be trying to torpedo Trump in this year’s election cycle to clear the way for himself come 2020.

Sarah Palin Flips Out On The Today Show Blaming President Obama For Her Son’s Domestic Violence Arrest

Sarah Palin explodes on The Today Show when asked about recent comments blaming President Obama for her son's domestic violence arrest
Former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin, the former half-term governor of Alaska, flipped out during an appearance on The Today Show this morning when she was asked a question about her recent comment blaming her son’s domestic violence arrest on President Obama.

The segment began with the show hosts asking about tonight’s Iowa caucus, and the scenario of Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz being at the top of polls in the state. During that conversation, Palin deftly took credit for getting Cruz elected to the U.S. Senate.

Via Raw Story:

Then co-anchor Savannah Guthrie appeared to blindside the former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate by asking about her suggestion that Obama caused her son to allegedly punch his girlfriend in the head.

“I never said that,” Palin said, pursing her lips in anger. “No, I never said that.”

Guthrie pressed on, and Palin argued the anchors had tricked her.

“You guys brought me to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight, not to talk about my kids — and that was a promise,” Palin said. “But as things go in the world of media, you guys don’t always keep your promises, evidently.”

“I never blamed President Obama,” Palin continued. “What I have blamed President Obama in doing, though, is this level of disrespect for the United States military that is made manifest in gutting budgets and not trying to beef it up and let our military do the job that they are trained to do. And in specific issues that we’re talking about that are so hot today — specifically, let’s get there and let’s utterly destroy ISIS as we know our United States military can do, yet we have a commander-in-chief who seems to kind of want to kowtow and allow the enemy to be poking at us — and that’s unacceptable to most Americans, certainly to me.”

Before ending the segment, Matt Lauer pointedly said that no promises had been made to Palin other than the interview would be her first since endorsing Donald Trump.

It’s worth noting that the question Guthrie asked was not about Palin’s troubled children, but about the former governor’s public statement blaming President Obama for our veterans’ PTSD.

For the record, this is what Ms. Palin said on January 20, 2016:

“My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different. They come back hardened.

“They come back wondering if there is that respect for what their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military have given so sacrificially to this country, and that starts at the top.

“It’s a shame that our military personnel even have to question, have to wonder if they’re respected anymore. It starts from the top. The question, though, it comes from the top, the question, though, that comes from our own president where they have to look at him and wonder, ‘Do you know what we go through? Do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?’”

“So when my own son is going through what he goes through coming back, I can certainly relate with other families who kind of feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with, and it makes me realize more than ever, it is now or never for the sake of America’s finest that we’ll have that commander in chief who will respect them and honor them.”

Here’s the full interview segment from The Today Show this morning:

Bill Maher gets it all SO right as he recaps the wild, rambling endorsement by former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, of GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump.

This is great.

Tina Fey Returns To SNL As “Sarah Palin” And It’s Priceless

After the former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, endorsed Donald Trump, you knew this was coming.

Tina Fey returned to SNL last night to reprise her spot on version of Palin, to spectacular results.

She takes Palin’s endorsement speech and just ups the ante a smidge to perfection. Thank you, baby Jesus!

“I’m here for all you teachers and teamsters, you farmers and charmers, whether you’re a mom or two broke girls, or three men and a baby, or a rock and roller, holy roller, pushing stroller, pro bowler with an abcess molar.”

Best moment at 2:23.

Enjoy.

Sarah Palin Blames President Obama For Her Son’s Domestic Abuse Arrest

It’s so much fun having former half-term Gov. Sarah Palin in the news again. Bloggers rejoice!

Today, for example, Palin addressed the recent domestic abuse arrest of her son, Track.

As Palin tells it, Track suffers from PTSD from his time in Iraq, which is all President Obama’s fault.

#ThanksObama

NBC News reports:

Sarah Palin suggested Wednesday that her son’s arrest on domestic violence charges this week stemmed from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and – in part – the president’s lack of “respect” for veterans.

Addressing what she called “the elephant in the room” during a rally in support of Donald Trump, Palin said her son Track came back “different” from his year-long deployment in Iraq.

“My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country,” she said after alluding to the arrest.

“It starts from the top. The question though it comes from our own president, when they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through, do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?” she added. “So when my own son is going through what he goes through, coming back, I can certainly relate with other families who feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with.”

According to police reports, Track Palin punched and kicked his girlfriend, threatened suicide by putting an AR-15 to his head and taunted her yelling “do you think I’m a pussy?” and “do you think I won’t do it?”

Between her daughter, who’s had two children out of wedlock while preaching abstinence, and a son who beats his girlfriend while allegedly drunk, I think it takes some big stones to blame someone else for your children’s shortcomings.

Clean your own house, Ms. Palin, before you blame others.

The Word Salad That Was Sarah Palin’s Endorsement Of Donald Trump

The cover of today’s New York Daily News

As Sarah Palin, former half-term governor of Alaska (before she quit), endorsed GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump, political folks across the country watched this incredible word salad pour forth from her mouth.

It’s really something to see. Just a few samples:

• “Well, and then, funny, ha ha, not funny, but now, what they’re doing is wailing, ‘Well, Trump and his Trumpeters, they’re not conservative enough.’ ”

“And he, who would negotiate deals, kind of with the skills of a community organizer maybe organizing a neighborhood tea, well, he deciding that, ‘No, America would apologize as part of the deal,’ as the enemy sends a message to the rest of the world that they capture and we kowtow, and we apologize, and then, we bend over and say, ‘Thank you, enemy.’ ”

“We’re talking about no more Reaganesque power that comes from strength. Power through strength.” (I think that was a bungled attempt to recall President Reagan’s famous “Peace through strength” line, but does it really matter?)

And, have you ever seen The Donald sit back so passively and hand the spotlight to someone else?

In related news, Trump refused to rule out a Palin as his running mate during an appearance on The Today Show this morning.

Tina Fey is must be dancing in the streets today.
