    Todd and Sarah Palin to divorce

    AlaskaReport has learned this morning that Todd Palin and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin are to divorce. Multiple sources in Wasilla and Anchorage have confirmed the news.

    A National Enquirer story exposing previous affairs on both sides led to a deterioration of their marriage and the stress from that led to Palin's resignation as governor of Alaska.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    I never liked her, she came off as a preachy bitch. First her daughter gets knocked up out of wedlock and now this. Family values :rolleyes:

    Caribou Barbie without Ken?

    It's just not natural.

    Denial of the rumors:

    Sarah Palin: No Truth to Latest Rumors | Facebook

    I don't agree with her on much (if anything), but this is just low.


    ***

    Let me also add that we all know that SOP when a "scandal" is exposed is to deny, deny, deny. We saw this with Clinton, with Haggard, and others. It's not a political issue. So let me change my stance and say that *IF* this is just a rumor then it's pretty low.

    This may be part of the reason she resigned as Governor.

    And why she's been silent on her Twitter and other social networking accounts.

    When will the Republican Party leadership improve their track record on supporting (and pushing on the rest of us) these folks with the moral track records of alley cats?! It seems that adultery, child abuse, sinful children and divorce are now required items to be one of their "best hopes for the future".
    Of course, the Religious Right can't offer many examples of Godliness either.
    What is this world coming to?

    I'm too pissed off to care. I bought a bunch of parsley marked as cilantro at the shithole of a supermarket we have in my town. Now I can't make salsa.

    Tomato Pineapple
    3/4 pound tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    1/2 cup pineapple chunks, crushed
    1/3 cup chopped green onion
    1 jalapeƱo, seeded and chopped (see note)
    1 1/2 tablespoons ground

    1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    1. In a medium bowl, combine chopped tomatoes, crushed pineapple chunks, chopped green onions, chopped jalapeno, and coriander; set aside.
    2. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, minced garlic clove, and salt; whisk in oil. Gently mix the dressing with the tomato mixture.
    Makes 8 servings.
    Note: Working with jalapeƱos or other chiles: Capsaicin is the ingredient in chiles that causes the burning sensation associated with fresh peppers. It's a good idea to use rubber gloves when handling fresh chiles. (Disposable surgical gloves, available at most drugstores, work best for this.) If you choose not to use gloves, be extremely careful not to touch any part of your body, especially your eyes. After you've finished handling the chiles, wash your knife and cutting board with hot soapy water to ensure that there is no carry-over to other foods that may come in contact with the peppers.

    As long as we are sharing recipes this is a great way to cap off the meal!
    Sour Cream Coffee Cake
    Filling
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts roasted in the oven on 350 for 10 minutes
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    4 tsp cinnamon

    Batter
    1/2 pound unsalted butter @ room temp + 1 TBL for greasing the pan
    2 cups sugar
    4 large eggs
    2 tsp vanilla
    2 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 cups sour cream
    4 cups Swan Down cake flour

    Mix the filling and set a aside
    In a large mixing bowl (If you have a Kitchen Aid it's easier)
    Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, add the eggs one at a time stir in the vanilla, baking powder and baking soda. (If you are using an electric mixer you are now done with it)
    With a wooden spoon stir in 1 cup of sour cream, and then 2 cups of flour, Be careful not to over mix batter should be thick but light, Stir in the other cup of sour cream and the remaining two cups of flour.
    Preheat the oven to 350 and butter a tube pan.
    put 1/3 of the batter in the pan, and top with 1/3 of the filling, add another 1/3 of the batter by dropping spoon fulls and smoothing it out. add another 1/3 of the filling and top with the remaining batter and smooth it out.
    Bake in the oven for 25 minutes then carefully top with the remaining filling.
    Bake for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
    Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. When it is cool remove the center from the pan and run a knife around the tube and under the cake to loosen it.
    It's a great coffee cake and rich enough, but it's divine topped with a little whipped cream.
    Enjoy!
