Sarah Smiles

Sarah Palin, one of the best candidates ever to run for Vice-President, has announced her marriage is ending after thirty-one years. That’s right, guys; she’ll soon be single!

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband Todd Palin has filed for divorce in Anchorage Superior Court.

Citing “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife,” the court document, filed on Friday, uses initials instead of full names, but lists the date of the Palin marriage and the birth date of their child, Trig, 11, who had Down Syndrome, for whom they filed joint custody.

Anchorage attorney Kimberloo Colbo is representing Todd, 55, and has asked the court to keep the case confidential. As well as Trig, the couple has four adult children, Track, 30, Bristol, 28, Willow, 25, and Piper, 18.

Sarah Palin, also 55, rose to prominence during the 2008 presidential election, when the former mayor of Wasilla was chosen by John McCain as his vice presidential candidate, a decision for which the Arizona senator expressed regret last year. (H/TAOSHQ)

Like most conservatives, I voted for Sarah Palin in 2008 and not the McCain squish. She was conservatism unleashed, and if not for McCain’s feckless kowtowing to King Putt, they may have had a chance to win the presidency. Then, years later, Sarah could have officially become the First Babe.

Sarah Palin Barred From McCain’s Funeral

Senator John McCain has requested his former running mate, Sarah Palin, not be invited to his funeral services.

I have been trying to not speak ill of the dead, but this story is making that exercise exceedingly difficult.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral.

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

Sarah Palin was the only reason I voted for McCain in 2008. She carried him during that election, because most voters were voting for Palin and her infectious constitutional conservatism instead of McCain’s bittersweet brand of liberalism. McCain thanked his running mate by recently suggesting he lost the election because of her; a notion which is 1. utterly classless, and 2. completely false.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family. The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice President.

I suppose when you’re angry and bitter, timing is everything.

Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.

Then Sarah Palin will be in good company, since she and the president are arguably two of the most viciously – and unfairly – attacked politicians in American history. President Trump has gone after his attackers – sometimes gracefully, sometimes not – but Sarah Palin has usually taken the high road.

Even after being excluded from the funeral, she declined to criticize him.

Of course she did, because Sarah Palin has always handled herself with grace and class; virtues I believe are severely lacking in the decedent and his family.
