Joe McGinniss's book on Sarah Palin is finally here. After years of hype, The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin does not disappoint, offering the kind of salacious allegations you'd expect from a guy who'd move next door to Palin to write a book about her. What's in it? Cocaine, a one-night stand with a basketball hero, a love triangle.
Palin allegedly slept with future NBA star Rice when he was a University of Michigan student playing at the Great Alaska Shootout. The one-night stand supposedly happend in Palin's sister Molly's dorm room at the University of Alaska. Palin was a TV sports reporter at the time. And dating her future husband*. "I remember Sarah feeling pretty good that she'd been with a black basketball star," a source told the National Enquirer, according to The Daily Mail. (The supermarket tabloid often limits its online content.)
The National Enquirer reports that Rice confirmed the affair to McGinniss. And The Washington Post's Cindy Boren helpfully notes, "because keeping score is important, Michigan lost, 79-64, to Arizona in the semifinals. The Wolverines finished third, beating Alabama-Birmingham. Rice was named to the all-tournament team."
