“Yeah, it Hurts”: Sarah Palin Learned She Was Being Divorced by Email from Todd’s Attorney

From an interview with Dr. James Dobson:

Dr. Dobson: You found out that your husband was filing for divorce from his lawyer.

Sarah Palin: I did.

Dr. Dobson: He did not even tell you.

Sarah Palin: I did. I found out from an email from an attorney saying that she was hired and that was on June 19th, I’ll never forget it. Then on Todd’s birthday, a week after our 31st anniversary is when he filed, yeah. Oh, yeah. It’s not easy to talk about.

Dr. Dobson: Did it-

Sarah Palin: But it’s not over yet.

Dr. Dobson: Was it devastating?

Sarah Palin: It was devastating. I thought I got shot. And yeah, I think-

    ________, go ahead fill in the blank.

  2. There is….. until we actually hear the other side of things…. a possibility that Sarah might have ‘mis-remembered’ things….She has hung around politicians for awhile.

    And… Revenge is a dish best served cold, I’ve heard so maybe if we knew all the details we would think…. “Gee — I would have had a plane pull a banner with some details….” (extreme example)

    Hard to know everything about a marriage and only have one data point from which to draw an opinion.
