It’s not what you think! Sarah Palin has never admitted Todd used women for prostitution. She has never said that Todd made money off of women. She never said that Todd married her to make money off of her. You’re probably confusing what Shailey Tripp said about Todd Palin, with Sarah’s comments about the Secret Service agent.
Sarah has slammed the media for “ginning up controversy.” Yet it seems that it is Sarah Palin who is trying to gin up controversy. With all eyes in the country focused on the prostitution scandal in Columbia,
Palin felt left out. The only logical thing to do was to interject herself into the scandal. But how? That was easy for Sarah Palin. First she has a direct connection to the media through Fox, so she gave an interview on Fox. In that interview she reminded the listeners of a pervious comment she made defending Herman Cain, for having a 13-year affair, saying “Boys Will Be Boys.” It is amazing that she repeated that phrase as it was sure to trigger thoughts of Todd’s involvement in prostitution as described in Shailey Tripp’s book.
It was as if Sarah, in some sort of twisted logic, wanted to be thought of as appealing and pursued by men as much as a young prostitute. Then to make the point crystal clear she made sure all listeners knew that she was connected to David Chaney, one of the Secret Service employees who was ousted this week in the wake of the Colombia prostitution scandal. It seems that David Chaney had posted several photos of himself on Facebook showing him protecting the defeated Republican vice presidential candidate. In a comment under one of the pictures, Chaney wrote, “I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean?” While these comments may have been somewhat inappropriate, they would surely not be grounds for dismissal. If anything, the Half-Term Ex-Governor must have been flattered that anyone was “checking her out.” To bring attention to these comments, rather than simply not repeating them, Sarah Palin was advertising that the same man who paid money for prostitutes in Columbia, also found her to be attractive.
No interview of Palin would be complete without finding a way to slam the President. Not to worry. She worked that in too. First she suggested a comparison between herself and Michelle Obama, saying:
“The president, for one, he better be wary, there, of when Secret Service is accompanying his family on vacation. They may be checking out the first lady instead of guarding her.”
Palin then indicated that all of these scandals were the President’s fault and due to his “poor management skills.” Was Sarah comparing the management skills of Todd with the President’s? Was she indicating that a better manager would intimidate everyone involved into keeping the information out of the public domain?
When Palin concluded the interview, do you think she was talking about Todd when she said:
“…I have had enough of these men being dogs and not being responsible?”
