Sarah Palin's Baby Oil Aversion

By Jeffrey Goldberg

The phlegmatic Mike Allen notes in Playbook today:

IF YOU'RE WONDERING how seriously to take Joe McGinniss' "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin" (on sale from Crown next Tuesday), consider this passage from page 146, quoting "one former houseguest" of the Palins: "'I get real dry in the winter,' the houseguest tells me, 'so I keep a bottle of baby oil by the bed. I'll come out of the shower, put it on, and go to bed. One day, when we're staying at the Wasilla Lake house, Todd says, 'I gotta talk to you guys. Sarah's pissed. She found that big bottle of baby oil in your bedroom and she knows you guys are rubbin' it on yourselves and havin' sex.' My husband was like, 'She uses it on her skin, dude.' But Todd says, 'Sarah wants you out. She's really upset thinkin' you're in there having sex with baby oil.' We left. We went to a motel."
