Todd Palin: Arrested for DUI!

by at . Comments

Seriously, did John McCain and his staff investigate the background of Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin for 20 minutes?

Or do you think they took a whole half hour?

Todd and Sarah Palin Picture

Hours after it was announced that 17-year old Bristol Palin is pregnant, research has uncovered the fact that Todd Palin was arrested and charged with DUI in 1986.

Who knew you could be arrested for DUI in a snowmobile. Way to go, Todd Palin!

According to CBN News, Todd was dating Sarah at the time of his arrest, which allegedly occurred in Dillingham, Alaska. There was no accident or injuries.

Citing sources close to Sarah Palin, Brody added that Todd has been "forthcoming about the situation and indicated it was a lesson learned  he was younger."

To be clear, The Hollywood Gossip staff doesn't believe Bristol's pregnancy, or Todd's DUI, has any bearing on Sarah Palin's qualifications for being Vice President.

But it is worth noting the facts that have arisen about Governor Palin in the 72 hours since she was designated the nominee:

  • She is under investigation by an ethics committee in Alaska;
  • Her teenage daughter is pregnant;
  • Her husband was once arrested for drunk driving;
  • She told an interviewer on July 31 of this year that she had no idea what a Vice President actually does.

Any or all of these facts could be overlooked if Palin were as qualified as, say, Joe Biden. But combined with her utter lack of experience in national and international affairs and we're left to wonder if John McCain is even trying to win.

Lets not forget about John and Cindy's affair while John's wife was disfigured after a near-fatal accident. No wonder the Dems are now in charge of Washington and Obama has been leading in 90% of the polls and will take the oath of office in Jan. No wonder Hurricane Gustav made landfall on the day of the RNC commencement while the Dems had a crystal clear and memorable convention. I am beginning to think that the word Republican by definition means hypocrisy.

Chah, I'm sorry it took me too long to respond but I was reading a story about how Obama's father was an abusive alcoholic bigamyst who lost his legs in a drunk driving accident some years after he abandonned Barrack at the age of two. I wonder just how much of a role the abandonment had on Barrack who turned to drugs to cope in his youth, as he recalls in his own book(s). The article was making several points about Palin/her family. Chah.

Phil I am not going to delve into you and B Rational back and forth but if you are going to say "Palin does in fcat have 12 years of elected office, Obama has 2. That's a fact." then you should have your facts straight first. Obama has 14 years of elected office 10 in Illinois State Senate and four as a US Senator. So saying Obama has two is far from fact.

You leave no doubt that you are far left. Here are some facts, you are still interested in those, right? She is under investigation by a democrat that has gubernatorial ambitions. She has been exonerated by the ethics committee on the firing of the commissioner All teenagers make mistakes, let's focus on Sarah. BTW if she were a Democrat you would be raising hell for attacking her family, biased? Partial? Maybe so. Her HUSBAND was arrested 22 years ago when the laws were just being established in that area. I am currently researching more about that, you know research. Wow, don't you think she was joking about the VP's job? If not, I will talk monotonously to you and make no jokes or be sarcastic... that was sarcastic. Oh gee look I'm done. Those were your objections to her, objections answered and HEY, welcome to the republican party. You'll have to loose the pink tie... sorry sarcasm again.

Democrats just can't get over the fact that their woman (Hillary, Janet Reno, Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Helen Thomas, Dianne Fienstein) are so much uglier than ours.... (Sarah Palin, Condi Rice, Laura Bush, Cindy McCain, Laura Ingraham..) Enough said, now lets get on with the REAL issues of this campaign!

I would consider Cheney to be an exception to the ordinary reality of Vice-Presidential duties. Think Dan Quayle, for instance. Cheney isn't running for President, because he's not constitutionally eligable, having already acted as President for two terms. Yes, there was that other shill who ran for President and made all the TV appearances (and might actually have gotten elected the second time around), but everyone knows who was really making the decisions.

Well said, B. Rational. But 8 presidents have actually died in office. It's happened more often than people realize and it HAS to be the main consideration of any Presidential nominee.
This is from today's NY Times cover story: A Republican with ties to the campaign said the team assigned to vet Palin in Alaska had not arrived there until Thursday, a day before McCain stunned the political world with his vice-presidential choice. One day before. That's mind-boggling.

Does someone actually pay to read your rag??? What garbage. Stick to the Hollywood crowd. They deserve you.

Todd Palin Quotes

Todd Palin [on his wife]: I remember the first time she ran for mayor one of her fellow council members told her you can't run because you've got three negatives: Track, Bristol and Willow. Those are the three kids we had at the time. So when you tell her that kind of stuff, she just gets fired up. We're an Alaska family that adapts.

He's been trained for this mission and so we've seen that confidence in that young man. We're, of course, nervous.
