The National Enquirer Prepares to Print Story That Sarah Palin Had Affair

The National Enquirer was preparing to publish a story that Republican John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, had an affair with her husband's business partner. And John McCain is threatening a law suit.

The Enquirer has gained prominence recently after it published a story that one time Presidential candidate John Edwards was having an extra marital affair. That story proved to be true.

In a statement to the Huffington Post, a spokesman for the paper, who promised a larger report next week, tapped into that pool of quasi-respect.

"The National Enquirer's coverage of a vicious war within Sarah Palin's extended family includes several newsworthy revelations, including the resulting incredible charge of an affair plus details of family strife when the Governor's daughter revealed her pregnancy. Following our John Edwards' exclusives, our political reporting has obviously proven to be more detail-oriented than the McCain campaign's vetting process. Despite the McCain camp's attempts to control press coverage they find unfavorable, The Enquirer will continue to pursue news on both sides of the political spectrum."

Palin has been at the center of a media firestorm. She allegedly tried to have her ex-brother-in-law fired through an "abuse of power", something Palin flatly denies. She dropped a bombshell Monday, confirming that her unwed 17 year old daughter is pregnant. The father - another 17 year old who attended the convention - wrote on his MySpace page that he is a "f**king redneck" who is not ready for kids yet.

But Gambling911.com, which has been monitoring odds on the upcoming Presidential election, is witnessing the most intense scrutiny related to Palin's reported nine hour flight from Texas to Alaska when she was eight months pregnant. (I) have a question about Sarah Palin's last pregnancy. She has been praised for her courage when her water broke while making a speech in Texas. As I understand she continued the speech; took her scheduled flight back to Alaska (8 hours) and delivered the baby about an hour later. My daughter in-law had a baby in February (9 weeks early) when her water broke she could not control the flow (nor can anyone else). We rushed her to the hospital (20 minutes seemed to take forever). The biggest concern was infection. I feel she was being irresponsible by taking a chance that things would turn out fine. I had three children and with each child the baby came quicker. Something seems wrong and I'd like to know if you are having the same concerns about Sarah Palin's judgment?

Oddsmakers overseas have given Palin 8/1 odds of dropping off the ticket while Bookmaker.com has made McCain a +160 underdog to become the next US President.
