Twin peaks update

On Friday, I breathlessly linked to a post by Andrew Sullivan on an emergency court motion in Alaska by an associate of Todd Palin, Sarah Palin’s husband, asking that his divorce papers be sealed. Like others of my ilk, I assumed the court motion had something to do with Mrs. Palin’s alleged extra-marital affair.

But The Smoking Gun has read the court motion, which was denied, and they tell us there’s a more innocent explanation for the motion: The ex-business partner wanted to protect his and his family’s privacy from intrusive reporters.

I can respect that.

Now, her family life is slightly less similar to that of David Lynch’s creepy characters in his landmark television series “Twin Peaks.”
