It was a bad weekend for the Alaskan bloggers. They tried to float a rumor that Sarah Palin was getting a divorce from Todd. Their efforts evaporated in moments because of a quick Facebook message from Palin's spokesperson Meg Stapleton and an official quote from Sarah Palin herself. In the aftermath faux reporter Dennis Zaki inadvertently forgot to redact key information about Immoral Minority blogger Gryphen from a letter issued by Palin's attorney Thomas Van Flein. That key piece of information was enough of a hint that an anonymous tipster sent The Other McCain and Riehl World View information identifying Gryphen as Jesse Griffin.
Unlike Zaki, McCain and Riehl double checked their sources and indeed proved Gryphen was Jesse Griffin part time Alaskan kindergarten teacher. To make matters worse, Griffin actually confirmed the key piece of information in his own blog posting.
So from Epic Fail #1 grew Epic Fail #2. Not only did the bogus divorce story crumble, it lead to the outing of Immoral Minority blogger Gryphen. Now everyone can sit and wonder why an assistant kindergarten teacher spends his free time saying things like this:
"So our trailer trash Barbie of a Governor is also a spoiled brat who blames her failings on the people around her? Nothing that I learned about this nasty bitch surprises me anymore." - Gryphen 11/06/2008"She kind of reminds me of that girl who did not get invited to the prom so she dresses up in a low cut dress and high heels and tries to get all the boys to pay attention to her instead of their dates. And later you find her in a parked car giving a hand job to the captain of the football team. Pure class." - Gryphen 11/09/2009"Wherever Trig came from he has proved to be a very valuable asset to Sarah Palin indeed. But just where did Trig Palin come from? As of today, as of this minute, and after over a month of searching I cannot tell you. I simply do not know for certain. I do know however where he did not come from. He did not issue forth from Sarah Palin. He may have been concieved inside her house (The jury is still out on that one), but he was not conceived in her uterus. On that one fact I have absolutely no doubt." - Gryphen 06/06/2009
Amazing what one can say while hiding behind a nom de plume?
