The Palins are NOT getting Divorced

Sarah Palin's official response is at Stacy McCain's place:

"Divorce Todd? Have you seen Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but I'm not blind!"

-- SARAH PALIN, 5:35 p.m. ET

More from Meg Stapleton, Sarah Palin's communications manager, at Sarah's Facebook page:

Yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story. There is no truth to the recent "story" (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that the Palins are divorcing. The Palins remain married, committed to each other and their family, and have not purchased land in Montana (last week it was reported to be Long Island).

Less than one week ago, Governor Palin asked the media to "quit making things up." We appreciate that the more professional journalists decided to question this story before repeating it.

Meg Stapleton

Update: In an email Bookworm, a blogger friend, says this about liberal bloggers: "They can't tell the truth about Obama, but they can publish every lie and rumor about Sarah."

Well the MSM is at it again. Trying their best to dirty Sarah. Too bad for them she has class and morals. They can talk all they want, but it is obvious they are p*ssed she is admired by so many people. I bet if a REAL poll was taken, she would be rated higher than phonies like Katie Couric, Joy Behar, etc. Let them all eat crow when their "Savior" finalizes the sale of this country to the Muslim world. He is a loser and needs to be impeached.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

Birthers huh? The fools that you hold dear to your heart believe G. W. Bush had something to do with 9/11, yet millions of people saw the plane. Which records of Obama's have you seen? School records? Draft papers? Certainly not an original long from certificate of birth. The News paper ad? Anyone can get an announcement posted in a paper. Another small problem for Obama. Which may be the reason he has spent more than most make in a lifetime to keep the publich from seeing these documents. At the time, a 17 year old girl could not confer citizenship on an offspring so because his father was a citizen of the British Empire. Obama is not a natural born citizen. However not to worry. The Democrats do not follow either the laws of this country nor do they adhere to the constitution. Only when the Republicans replace the criminals who currently run the house and senate will Obama be impeached. Tina, you can always turn to alcohol or drugs to use as a coping skill when the disappointment that comes when your communist agenda is rejected.

Well Darleen, I have raised a family in partnership with my wife. I haven't been governor nor have I run for VP. But I haven't been a serial quitter either. I never quit school, the military or any job I've ever had. And while all that was going on I even found the time (and curiosity) to read a few magazines and some books.

"And you've obviously read a few liberal blogs."

True, as well as some conservative ones, some magazines, newspapers and books. It appears as if about all Palin reads are tweets.

DaveD - never been fired or laid-off or company folded. It seems however you equate being laid-off with Palin's habit of quitting just about everything she's tried. That's about as dumb a point as can be.

Palin's resignation obviously puts yet more pressure on Obama to finally get some results, as the soaring rhetoric isn't hypnotizing the plebes like it used to... and now there's another viable alternative waiting in the wings.

Alaska was a pretty corrupt system until she stepped in. Her reforms took on entrenched politicians (inc. Republicans), a mafioso-style union boss, and Big Oil.

Wouldn't it have been nice if Obama had been principled and brave enough to confront the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine? Or shady political operators like Tony Rezko? Racist preachers? Instead of doing business with every last one of them?

IMO Palin could trounce him in 2012, when Americans would vote for the Gipper-in-Heels in droves- they'll surely being looking for such an antidote to the Bolshevik con-artist who's currently taking a wrecking-ball to this society.

No wonder the far-left moonbats -along with Team Obama's David Plouffe and his internet squads- are out to destroy her.

Palin divorce rumors just business as usual from the enemies of a real conservative GOP

The Democrat left and GOP elites fear Palin's popularity with conservative voters as well as her independence from their control and direction. They have done all they can do to destroy her marriage, family, children and her vision for America and will continue to do so.

To the GOP neocon establishment who have trashed and attacked Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Peter Schiff and other potential Republican candidates far more than the liberal Democrats, your attacks just increase the popularity of Sarah and the Palin For President in 2012 website effort at http://www.palin4pres2012.com where we answer "Why They Hate Sarah".

Palin scares the Left because she walks the walk. They will make up anything they can think of, try anything they can imagine in their efforts to discredit her in the minds of non-partisan voters.

Some on the Right fear Palin because her "version" of conservatism is not congruent with their own.

Perhaps next rumor will be that both she and Todd are transgendered and that Todd is the true mother of their children.

I see you are being a bit sensitive. You implied that Palin is a quitter. You wrote you yourself have never quit any of the jobs you had. That implies you have had multiple jobs. Frankly, I also know people who have multiple jobs and have quit some of them because they have found something better. I never gave it a thought before that they were "quitters" in the derogatory sense. You see it differently. I get the sense you are basically full of it but the anonymity of the internet provides convenient cover for you.

Of course, the best example of someone who quit one job to take a better one is Barack Obama. But, irony is lost on the left.

I'm guessing that Sarah Palin will now get rich on the speaking tour and from writing. In any event, she found something better.

In regards to Obama being a citizen, if he was, he would release his college records, his birth certificate, or his passport. But, as usual, with is speeches while campaigning, he talked about how "transparent" he and is admin would be. The only thing he has been transparent about is his hatred of the "Whiteys" and anyone with morals. He needs to be impeached IMMEDIATELY. As for Ms. Palin stepping down, she said it was because the unfounded ethical accusations were costing the state of AK millions to investigate, even tho the results were in Ms. Palins favor. You Dems need to get a grip on reality and face the fact that your "Savior" is a moron who wants nothing more than to turn our country into a socialistic government where the citizens have no choice in birth or death. First, it was abortions on demand, even tho the requirements were supposed to be the birth of the baby would cause great mental of physical harm to the mother. But, Killer Tiller in KS used the excuse to perform a late-term abortion because the girl didn't fit into her cheerleading uniform anymore. Now, Obama is trying to kill off seniors with his end-of life "counselling" sessions. What a sick joke.

The Real Reason Why Obama Has Not Released His Original Birth Cerificate

The state of Hawaii maintains possesion of all original birth certicates. Nobody born in Hawaii is allowed to possess their original birth certificate.

Hawaii has made the original certificate to available to many in the media. Now don't you feel foolish?

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

Tina, that is not a birht certificate. It is a certification of live birth. If you were a little brighter and had done just a minimal amount of research. I suggest reading the laws that applied at the time. It is extremely easy to get a certificate indicating birth in Hawaii. Problem is, there is no proof on those documents. On the long form which has never been released to the public, who have vested interest. My question for you, should you get a sudden impulse of honesty, is why is Obama fighting the release. Sort of like you last hero who choses to continue to hide his Naval records. If you are attempting to hold a job of importance to the nation, things as important as school records, voting records at state level and published articles become important to those who will either vote to elect or reject a candidate. Obama has chosen to fight releasing the information. You can pretend the information is public. If you know, name the Doctor who attended his birth, otherwise STFU.

TinaS - The long form of the birth certificate is the official paper - unfortunately for Obama, the one supposedly produced as the "Real One" has a typeface that was not even around until many years later. Why don't you nuts face the fact that you have put into an office he does not deserve, and he is a charlaton and an arrogant a**hole. When we are a socialistic country, all of you democrat pigs can congrat yourselves on putting all of us in jeopardy.

Still An Unrepentant Democrat:

To all the apologists for Palins's penchant for quitting:

OK - maybe it's reasonable that she quit school; maybe it's reasonable she quit her job. I'll give you that for the sake of argument. But the governorship? Please, the whining, self-indulgent excuse that she was saving Alaska is beyond pathetic.

I can see the ad now - a derivation of the 3am ad Hillary did about Obama. It's 3am and a phone rings in the WH - Palin picks up the phone and says: " I'm sorry, I quit just like I did when the heat got to me when I was governor."

As for the justification by 914_62, it might become my business if she wants to run for the presidency. And how about the citizens of Alaska, is it their business? By the way her disapproval(s) in Alaska are now higher than her approvals. Funny how she started tanking after she quit.

DaveD - I didn't imply anything. I said, and I'll say it again, she's a serial quitter - apparently when the going gets rough she tends to whine and quit. Marvelous character traits for someone who may want to be president. Are you saying that a person who ups and quits a governorship is justified because they may have found something better? What is the something better that she has found? Money? I', not sure what your silly comment about internet anonymity is about other than a red herring or just plain stupid.

The evidence is in maggie, she's steadily losing the approval of those who know her best - Alaskans.

I agree with Zelsdorf vis-a-vis the "birther" issue. Obama's certificate of live birth is not what historians would call a "primary source" document. It was probably generated circa 2000 a.d. , and definitely NOT in August 1961. It's basically a chit, a piece of ephemera as documents go that states issue now in lieu of bith certificate xerox (I tested it myself recently. The Commonwealth of Kentucky sent me a chit, too, and not a birth certificate copy per se). However, I believe Obama WAS born in the new state of Hawaii of an American mother which makes him a US citizen by birth. I figure he'll whip out a 1961 xerox of his birth certicate in October 2012, or never, since the circle has been effectively closed by his election as the 42nd constituted president ipso facto.
