Todd Palin Slams Joe McGinniss' Book, Neglects to Mention Awesome Glen Rice Rumor

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, denounced Joe McGinniss' new book about Alaska's most famous family as "disgusting lies, innuendo and smears" in a statement.

The former governor's camp is looking to discredit the biography - a racy, detailed, provocative tell-all, even as Palin gossip goes - which is due out next week.

Todd Palin slammed The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, specifically denying that his business partner Brad Hanson had an affair with his wife.

The part about Glen Rice nailing Sarah Palin, sadly, went unmentioned by Todd.

Todd Palin wrote of McGinniss:

"This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in next door to harass and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife." 

"His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo and smears. Even The New York Times called this book 'dated, petty,' and that it 'chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.'"

Hang on ... the Palins read The New York Times?

The 2008 GOP VP nominee has yet to comment. Last year, she wrote of McGinniss: "Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden and the family's swimming hole?"

McGinniss, who rented the house next door to the Palins while writing the work, defended his reporting in an interview on the Today show.

"I think I was as fair as I could have been given the fact that she told all the people who were closest to her not to talk to me," he said.

Of all the claims he makes, the allegations that Sarah Palin carried on an affair with Brad Hanson have clearly ruffled the most feathers.

Hanson again denied the allegation in a statement:

"This is the same old story that went around in 2008. It is a complete and outright lie," Hanson said. "Todd and Sarah Palin have been good friends for many years, and in fact we still own property together."

"We sold a former joint business venture for business reasons, nothing more. These attacks are shameful and those making them seem to be out only to destroy good people and make money doing so."

As for Sarah snorting coke off of oil drums, that may or may not have taken place. We have no idea. But thank you Joe for the hilarious visual.


Ummmmm a 6' 8" black man, how can I be down! White girls have all the fun.


First "Dud"...(LOL)


Matthew 7:1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged." I love all of the sympathy and caring that comes from all of the supposedly "Tolerant Left"! What a joke!


I became curious about Sarah Palin when she did not accept state trooper security when she became governor. She is a desirable woman whose husband was on the North Slope for weeks at a time, and she was around on-the-make alpha males continuously in her political career, and traveling with what could be lonely nights in hotel rooms. It's a piece of cake to slip in and out of rooms when there is no security outside the door. With a couple of drinks to soften one up, it's a short distance from the bar to the bedroom and why would a warmed-up woman want to suffer the pain of being alone? I'm getting aroused even contemplating the inevitabilities.


@Kitty King: Nice One


I had thought of Joe McGinniss as a true crime writer. And the last book of his I read was quite good, well researched and well written. Not sure that I will read this book as I have zero intrest in any more info on Sarah Palin,good or bad. I agree with @Leo. And would like to add that it seems as though Sarah Palin wants so badly to be in the public eye, wants so badly to be seen as someone "important" but yet she refuses to accept that the more she puts herself out there the more people are going to talk about her both good and bad. She refuses to admitt any tiny misstep in her life and slams anyone who may point them out yet is willing to bask in the glow of every positive comment made about her no matter who it comes from. She wants only positive things said about her and reacts like a toddler throwing a tantrum when anything even slightly negative is said.


Their own statements tell you the kind of people we are dealing with. They may not like the author living next to them, and for good reason, but they imply he is a stalker and a pedophile. She slanders the writer in the same breath as she whines about being slandered. What a joke.


Dear Sarah, Please don't let this get you down. Look on the bright side. You CAN make lemonade out of lemons. Now you can add to your resume that you have had foreign relations experience with African-Americans. All you gotta do is take your tweeted advice to Dr. Laura Schlessinger after she used the N-word 11 times in 5 minutes after being asked a question about mixed-race dating from a black female caller. Your tweeted advice? "don't retreat...reload!" Is that what you told Glen Rice also too?

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
