Morning Quickies: Sarah Palin Kicked Out Houseguest Over Baby Oil

  • Sarah Palin once asked Todd to kick a houseguest out of their Wasilla home because she was suspicious the baby oil on his bedside table was being used for sex, according to Joe McGinniss’s scandalous new book The Rogue. According to the book, “Todd says, ‘I gotta talk to you guys. Sarah’s pissed. She found that big bottle of baby oil in your bedroom and she knows you guys are rubbin’ it on yourselves and havin’ sex.’ My husband was like, ‘She uses it on her skin, dude.’ But Todd says, ‘Sarah wants you out. She’s really upset thinkin’ you’re in there having sex with baby oil.’ We left. We went to a motel.'” Yet another reason never to stay at Chez Palin. []

Lipreaders claim FLOTUS says “all this just for a flag,” “all that for a flag,” or “all of this for a damn flag” to her husband, who then nods in agreement. Somehow, I find this suspect. [The Week]
