Sarah Palin Worried About Oil Money Conflict of Interest In Her Divorce

News

Way back in 2007, when Wonkette was literally theonly national media actually covering Sarah Palin and her ridiculous role as John McCain's vice-presidential candidate was still just a stain in Bill Kristol's underroos, the Wasilla grifter was already planning her divorce from amiable extremist dolt Todd Palin. Emails finally released on Thursday show Sarah was scheming even then, and wondering if her divorce from Todd -- a laborer on the North Slope oil fields -- would somehow lead to charges of conflict of interest because of Governor Sarah's "drill baby drill" policies. None of this makes any sense, because Sarah Palin is a lifelong idiot. But she is consistently phony and amoral, when it comes to "family values," at least!


The Washington Post saves this only interesting part for the last paragraphs of its article:

The emails indicate her job had taken a toll on her marriage long before she even became McCain’s running mate.

In a Sept. 26, 2007, email to Kris Perry and her husband Todd, titled “Marital Problems,” Palin writes: “So speaking of... If we, er, when we get a divorce, does that quell “conflict of interest” accusations about BP?” Her husband was a former BP employee on the North Slope.

So wait, she copied Todd on this email? We hate to give Sarah Palin any credit at all, for anything, but this actually sounds like a cheap, sarcastic joke and not actual plans to get divorced. Why does the Lame Stream Media fail to get Sarah's snarling, half-serious attempts at humor? [Washington Post]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
