First Edwards and now this. Going to be some great denials after this post…

Great source. No. Really. Enquirer? Almost as dependable as that fucking RealNews shit that Zepplin guy is incessantly posting links to.

Did you really just link us to the national enquirer?

Did you think no one would notice?

What the hell were you doing on national enquirer?

Yeah, this is hilarious. This is the funniest thing I seen come out of this election yet.

The Fox News position:

Wait till they come out with the story that says Biden is an alien sent to colonize earth. Now that will be big!

What do you think the people of Hollywood use as their news source?

Well to be fair, I think it was the Enquirer who broke the Edward’s affair story. Regardless, the fact that the lefties are willing to go digging in personal matters that are over a decade old is a little pathetic. I’ll give Palin the benefit of the doubt until we’ve got something more substantial that second- and third-hand accounts.

Yeah, the Enquirer was actually fairly responsible with the Edwards story. They sat on it for months until they were sure they had the goods.

If this were to turn out to be as demonstrably true as the Edwards fiasco then the election would be a formality and President Obama is an inevitability.

They sat on the Edwards story for months. They came out with the Palin lie as soon as they heard anything they use against her.

See the difference?

If they actually practice good journalism, this story - if there is one - would not break until after the election. The dems don’t have that kind of time, so the press is willingly pushing wild rumor as fact.

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

That very well could be and I believe is the case. However the Enquirer is about sensationalism and money. I just saw it yesterday with “PROOF” of Obama’s muslim ties. I don’t think they could care less about supporting one side or the other.

The sources for this are dubious at best at this point and I consider anybody, including liberal democrats as innocent until proven guilty.

I agree, they broke the Edwards story and it was true. This also may be true. If she has had an affair and she was stupid enough to run for VP then she deserves exposure and the consequences that it brings.

If this is just another hack job then that too should be exposed.

Either way I thought liberals liked it when spouses cheated. You know blow jobs in the oval office were no big deal. Have the rules changed now?

I’m not sure, could a liberal fill me in on the ever changing values of the left…[/quote]

Wait a minute - are you aying there are people out there who think blow jobs in the oval office ARE a big deal?

Would they feel the same way about all extra-marital affairs, or only when a democrat is doing the cheating?

Her affair was with you and she’s describing your penis in that pic.

  1. Yes, me.

  2. Yes, all.

My only comment on this is, what a great photo accompanying the Enquirer story.

“Well, I tried to have sex with him, but damn! His little pecker was only this big!”

And now I see that Mr. John Galt hath beat me to it.

This doesn’t make any sense. It wouldn’t be libs who would be punishing Palin for this. It would be her voters i.e. conservatives.

EDIT: As a side note I find it crazy that this could potentially be a bigger deal with voters than the fact that she got her first passport last year?!

Doubtful, since a great number of her supporters likely have no passport themselves.

Nor, for that matter, do the majority of Obama’s supporters.

Eighty percent of the US population does not own a passport.

Of course, until this year it was not necessary to own a passport in order to travel to Canada or Mexico, the most common international destinations for American travelers.

When one effectively owns a continent which is as geographically varied as Eurasia, I imagine the impetus for leaving it might be somewhat weak.

Of course, I was an expat for nearly twenty years, so what do I know?

Yes as I understand you lived in Japan for quite some time right? Fascinating place. How was it returning to the US after so long?

Also you make some good points and I would be interested in your opinion. It sounds like you have travelled quite a lot. Personally I believe the travel I have done, cultures I have experienced, places I have seen etc… have been almost more of a valuable education than any schooling I have received. Because of this it is something I look for in any candidate. Of course it’s not the only or by any means the most important criteria to me but it is up there.

A potential head of state that got their first passport at around 40 has alarm bells going for me.

What do you think?
