Don't Say I Didn't Warn You

The National Review, for god's sake the National Review!, reports that the National Enquirer is alleging that Palin had an affair with a business partner of her husband's, a few years back. Andrew Sullivan and Pufferfish have both picked this up. On top of this, Sullivan reports
Todd Palin's former business partner files an emergency motion to have his divorce papers sealed. Oh God.
The motion was denied. Oh God, indeed!

Looks like I, and the blogosphere, got it wrong. According to The Smoking Gun:
Richter wanted the documents deemed confidential in a bid to cloak details about his home, workplace, and phone numbers because "reporters and news agencies" were using that information to contact him. Richter, a 39-year-old contractor, noted that he is "friends and land owners in a remote cabin" with the Palins and, as a result, journalists were intruding on the "cabin life and private life" of him and his 11-year-old son.
OK, so this particular story about Palin was incorrect. I don't doubt that there's a sewer full of more stories about her. Toss in the campaign's arrogant denial of media access to Palin, and I still doubt that she'll be on the ticket, come November. Either way, the real enemy is still Bush-McCain.
