We’ve never heard of this website AlaskaReport.com, so when they posted on Saturday that Sarah and Todd Palin were on the train bound for Divorceville, we didn’t know what to think. The site claimed that marriage issues were what led Sarah to make her abrupt exit as governor, and that Alaska’s first couple barely spoke before or after Sarah’s resignation speech last weekend. They also claimed that a Palin staffer confirmed the couple was dunzo, and that Sarah had stopped wearing her wedding ring. Oh, and that Sarah had bought some land in Montana, where she’s considering moving with the kids. [Alaska Report]
It took less than a few hours for the Palin camp to chime in. A spokesman posted a message on Sarah’s Facebook account saying, “Yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story. There is no truth to the recent ‘story’ (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that the Palins are divorcing,” read the post. “The Palins remain married [and] committed to each other and their family.” [New York Daily News]Oh, but that’s not all folks. See what happens when we don’t read the National Enquirer from cover-to-cover each week? Last week, the venerable rag—which in all fairness, was the first to break the John Edwards scandal—dished that Sarah Palin had an affair circa 1996 with a dude name Brad Hanson, who used to own a snowmobile dealership with Todd. While both Sarah and Brad have denied that any boots-knocking ever happened, the Enquirer claims that they gave a polygraph tests to Brad’s family members, who all claim that, yes, the two were together.

So are Moose-Hunt Ken and Barbie getting divorced? Probably not. But if they do, here’s hoping that Sarah ends up with her intended, William Shatner.
