Salacious details about Sarah Palin are quickly emerging from leaked copies of Joe McGinniss’ highly-anticipated book The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.
The book, which is said to answer such questions as “Who is she, really?” and “How did she happen?” according to a statement on the author’s website, details the former Alaskan governor’s alleged one-night stand with basketball great Glen Rice nine months before her marriage to husband Todd, reports The National Enquirer, which obtained an advanced copy of the controversial book due out Sept. 20.
McGinniss unearthed some of the details about the former U.S. vice-presidential candidate’s alleged affair with Rice in 1987 during his time living next to the Palin in Wasillia, Alaska last summer.
Rice, the former Miami Heat player, was in Anchorage for the college basketball tournament Great Alaska Shootout while Palin was working as a sports reporter for TV station KTUU at the time of the alleged hookup, the tabloid says.
McGinniss, who says he spoke with Rice, who confirmed the tryst, claims Palin had a “fetish” for black men during that time, the Enquirer says.
Rice, whose ranked eighth in NBA history with over 1,500 three-point field goals in 15-year career, could not be reached for comment Wednesday, The Miami Herald reports.
The book also details how Palin allegedly had a six-month affair with Todd’s friend and business partner Brad Hanson and how Palin and Todd experimented with cocaine use, adding that Palin was seen snorting cocaine off an overturned oil drum while snowmobiling, the tabloid reports.
On Thursday, McGinnis criticized Chicago Tribune, Newsday and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for not running the popular Doonesbury comic strip because it referenced his soon-to-be-released book.
“Major newspapers in Chicago, New York, and Atlanta refuse to run–for a full week or more–a comic strip that refers to excerpts from a book that dares to criticize a woman who once ran for vice president and then quit as governor of her state and has subsequently made millions of dollars by doing reality shows and appearing as a highly-paid political commentator on a right-wing TV channel?” McGinniss wrote on his blog.
No need to actually source it. Just say "someone told me" or I read somewhere.
Bachmann has lowered the bar for veracity
The National Enquirer was right!!!!
KNEW it! All females just knew what she was like!Knew people like her in High School. Ahaha--it's true then, Krystal had the Hots for her when he recruited her!! And she used her "wiles" on him. dang. so Typical!
She was proud of her nick-name Barracuda....it means what it means.
That lowers my opinion of Glen Rice. Have you been following Doonesbury. Several newspapers have stopped printing the comic strip since it started in on Sarah's sex life.
Yes. It reminds me of the dustup over the "inside the brain of Ronald Reagan" series.
That must have been a very short series.
Like a single frame.
(Go ahead, smack me. I deserve it )
Why didn't this information come out in the open during the elections?! I would have voted for her!!!
Greek, why not a Raptor? I wonder!
If and when you read this book the background music should be a bang chicky wahwah
70's porn style.
I saw her in the movie Chicky Chicky Bang Bang. I don't know what the umbrella was used for.
Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "slam dunk"!
He's pretty hot (duh, he plays for the HEAT). But he's no Karl Malone.
Please don't tell me she had him, too.
I'll be crushed.
This is garbage news. Let's get back to actual issues.
a potential presidential candidate drug user with no morals when is comes to opening her legs for a sports star IS an issue to many of her potential supporters
I always thought she looked like a Thanksgiving Turkey. Now we know she has been stuffed like one too!
If Sarah Palin loses supporters because of this I guess that says a lot more about her supporters than it does about Sarah Palin.
I'm actually amazed that Glen Rice has confirmed this. If he's anything like the typical sports star, he's had plenty of one night stands. Being able to recall one in particular from 24 years ago is remarkable.
If she had had the courage to tell this part of her life she might have got more votes.
We have just had an MP outed by the Murdoch press as a former drug user. She said more or less "Yes we all were at that time. So what?". It does not seem to have hurt her.
...the past (true/false) didn't stop this guy....and i can't even imagine how many 'legs he spread'.............................
....my personal 2 cents - she'll be attacked even more, because first of all - she is a woman...then the rest falls from there
When asked as a young woman how she had so much energy yet seemed so relaxed, Palin reportedly said to a friend..
"It's all about having a great breakfast.. I just start off each morning with two balls of rice"
Is that all ya got? That's really not a nice way to talk about the woman that might be our next president!
This is how Santa Claus sees Sarah Palin. I kid you not. I got this book for Christmas last year and the cover looked like this!
As to being mean.
Oh come on, La_Lo.
This is tame compared to the way people talk on a daily basis about the man who is already our president.
These revelations wouldn't be news at all if SP didn't portray herself as Mrs. American Morality 2008. Hypocrisy invites ridicule. Always has and always will.
Oh she might be our next President. let's all bow down. Oh look now that I am down this low I can see Russia.
If she gets to be president it would be sad indeed. How has your love life been Lady? Got any indiscretions you would like to tell us about?
Asked what the best thing was about his trip to Alaska, Glen rice replied "I loved the beaver hunting up there"
It's supposed to be 'Head of State'... not giving 'head in the state'.
Katie Couric: "So, Ms. Palin, what's your favorite thing about Alaska?"
Sarah Palin: "That's easy, Katie. There's so much snow!"
Mrs Palin, how would you describe what Glen Rice did you you that night?
..and what did you do to him?
The book is by the stalker that moved in next door to her... what a tool! I wouldn't put much stock in anything he has to say.
Evidently not only could she see Russia from her house, she also had a pretty good view of Bangcock
... he dumped her immediately thereafter though... something about he was not into so much Bush
What's the difference between a pitbull and Glen Rice's tallywhacker?
that's disgusting and disrespectfully to the former Governor of Alaska.. (who, indecently, has come out with a new line of Rice pudding treats..
Odd packaging though...the ingredients are "made from, but do not include, any Rice"
Ha! Greek One has a wry sense of humor. How about this one? "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. But if in the bush a maiden should stand, a push in the bush is worth two in the hand!"
If he was stalking her 24/7 then I am sure he knew what she was up to Just saying
Ralph I remember when I was in the 4th grade my teacher said " I don't beat around the bush" and I told him "no you probably beat behind it". Needless to say the conversation didn't go well from there.

While Sara Palin was contemplating if it would be more profitable to run or not to run,for her economic future that is, which is obviously the only thing that matters to her, a star was born. Michele Bachmann, must've gone to presidential candidate university and prepared herself real well, because...

There are a "few" posts in the forums indicating the posters' firm beliefs that Sarah Palin's book is an effort to (A) make money, (B) settle scores, (C) suck in those of us foolish enough to believe she's a person of substance, (D) blow hot air, and/or a number of other negative...

These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence. In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified presidential hopeful in the history of the United States of America. We...

This past election there was a lot of energy created in the choice by John McCain to have Sarah Palin as his running mate. What do you feel was the reason for this choice and how do you think she was qualified to be the Vice President. Could you please be factual with your replies to...
