Man On The News: Sarah Palin May Have Had A “Thang For Chocolate”

By now you’ve heard that conservative political lightning rod and Fox News pundit Sarah Palin may or may not have had an affair with a college-aged Glen Rice. You may have also heard that Palin, then a TV reporter for Alaska’s KTUU, allegedly had a “fetish for black men.”

The CW’s Daily Buzz sure has. And going with their “Morning News, Morning Fun!” mantra, they decided to highlight this point.

No matter how ugly this discussion gets (and it will get ugly over the next few days, because something tells me Palin’s conservative base won’t respond well to the whole “black men fetish” thing), let’s not lose sight of something: Palin is three years older than Rice. And I’ll tell you why this matters.

In 1987, when the alleged hookup occurred, she was 23 and just starting her TV career. Rice was 20 and still in school. There are currently no other details about this alleged one-night stand, other than the fact that Rice confirmed it, but do the math: Palin is slightly older, a former beauty queen, and on TV. Rice is a college kid. Not a normal college kid, mind you, because he stood 6-foot-8 and would go on to become Michigan’s all-time leading scorer, but a college kid nonetheless.

So if, at some point down the road, someone, somewhere tries to tell you that, surely, Sarah Palin must have been duped, tricked, or otherwise Jedi-Mindtricked into bed with Glen Rice, remind them of everything I just told you. She was a little older, very good looking, a professional, and in her home town. She had a lot of the power in this situation. At the very least, the initial attraction was mutual.

  • Really

    Palin derangement syndrome extends to the sports media now.

    I’d love to see the video. Sarah is such a sexy slut.

  • WestCivDoomed

    So the idea behind this is that Palin is a slut, a hypocrite and a racist? Gotta love the left.

    The thing about college basketball players is that you always think of them as college players — it is strange to recall that 1987 was 24 years ago and that Glen Rice is now 24 years older than he was then.

    Presumably they were both single at the time, so I don’t see what the big deal is. She is more famous today and he is less famous, so he wants to get in the headlines again?

    Here is the thing that gets me. Joe has a history of saying that the T party are a group of racists, so if their “leader” slept with a black man that would turn them off to her if she was ever to run.
    He basically used Glen Rice’s race as a “political hit”. Regardless whether it’s true or not, people will not care.

    The story says she was dating Todd at the time, so there is also a possible “cheating” element to this.

    I don’t care if she boinked  Glen Rice.  I don’t want her to be president because she’s a farking loon.

    She was 23.  He was 20.  Neither was married at the time so what’s the issue??

  • the kenyan

    how about an expose into BO’s college records or the real birth certificate. I heard that the indian actor BO hired left D.C. because BO wouldn’t admit to an affaire.. and he’s a male. not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    There is no video.

    I think the issue is she’s Sarah Palin, and people go absolutely psychotic about anything pertaining to her.

  • Anonymous

    So according to this article, all Sarah Palin supporters are racist and don’t like black people?
    Dan Fogarty is an idiot.

    10-1 she LOVES it in the can. Those types always do.

    I believe the “issue” is that she was an older woman who had (allegedly) graduated from college and she can’t claim she was a sweet innocent girl who was coerced by the guy into doing anything she didn’t really want to do.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Theresa-Darklady-Reed/581698361 Theresa ‘Darklady’ Reed

    Given that Glen Rice has said it happened, how is this an example of either “Palin derangement syndrome” or “the sports media” having caught it?

    Maybe Sarah Heath had sex with a black basketball player once while she was dating Todd? Or would that be too human a thing for your goddess to have done?

  • Jerry Baustian

    She would still make a better president than the one we have now.

  • Jerry Baustian

    You too, we’ve heard. It’s all over the Net.

  • NC

    This is the woman who is more clean than ivory soap….no way does she believe in sex before marriage…

    Just kidding – she is a total farce and it’s about time that people woke up to the fact.  She sold out her governorship for $7 million dollars – Why in the heck would people put her in theWhite House?

    They are also referring to the fact that Bristol pretends that she only had sex with Levi – because she was drunk…and or tricked….and or date raped….and any other little story that is convenient for her book and tv deals.

  • NC

    The whole family is a hoot —as long as they’re not trying to be in the White House.

  • NC

    ding ding ding – we have a winner —Thanks Theresa for spelling it out for these guys.  Obviously, they haven’t listened to Sarah and Bristol pretend that they’re the virgin Mary’s. :)

  • Gloriajj78

    Jerry Baustian is an idiot if he thinks sarah palin would be a better president than pres. Obama .He must be on cocaine with her or he must be hitting it too!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VK7U6RFTAUIPW2JR2NGPBP2IYA super

    Or maybe you’re on cocaine with Obama.   It would explain all his failed economic policy’s and government loans to failed solar panel companies.   SInce Obama has admitted he did do coke in his own book.  Everything about Palin is unfounded accusations.   Would anyone look up who Obama had sex with 24 years ago before he got married?   Imagine the list of people if they went looking into Bill Clinton’s little black book ;)

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VK7U6RFTAUIPW2JR2NGPBP2IYA super

    i don’t think Sarah said she was a virgin when she got married.  If she did please show me the quote.

    I don’t think anyone currently running for president was a virgin when they got married. 

    Now is it fair game to go into the premarital sex lives of Democrats???  Well is it???  Remember liberals what occurred  when Bill Clinton refused to end the independent investigator law pushing the Democrat controlled congress to reauthorize it??? You forgot that huh???   What was once used as a tool by a democrat controlled congress against republicans in just 1 year later was used by a republican controlled congress against Democrats. …payback is always a bitch :)
