UPDATE: Charlie's Site Meter is rockin' today -- pushing toward 12,000 hits by 2 p.m. Ice down those servers, Charlie. Dude's been linked by Lucianne, NRO Corner, Blue Crab Boulevard, Politico, Free Republic, American Thinker . . .
UPDATE II: Oh, for crying out loud! A "progressive" blogger is claiming (on the authority of "Lucille, the waitress") that Palin referred to Obama as "Sambo." How freaking desperate can they get?
UPDATE III: This "Sambo" smear is now #54 in Charlie's list of Palin rumors. That there are no named sources for this allegation, and that the only remotely identified source is the stereotypically named "Shirley, the waitress" (e.g., "Hazel, the maid," "Jeeves, the butler," "Joe, the mechanic") is your first clue that it's bogus. The fact that Palin has been in public life for 15 years and never been accused of any such thing is your second clue.
Michelle Malkin says this progressive blog "comes off like a really, really bad Onion parody," and Allah is equally dubious. As Charlie notes, "Sambo" is a suspiciously dated reference, considering that Palin is only 44.
UPDATE IV: Allah sees Andrew Sullivan as the driving force giving a semblance of credibility to the Palin smears, and notes this Politico item:
[Reporter T.C.] Mitchell said the [Anchorage] Daily News received a call from a media outlet seeking the rules of the Miss Wasilla Pageant, presumably to determine whether Palin cheated when she won it in 1984.In-freaking-credible!
UPDATE V: An Ace-o-lanche just crashed Charlie's server again.
UPDATE VI: Someone just e-mailed me what he purports to be a photo of Sarah Palin topless. Of course, it's a Photoshop job -- a highly skilled Photoshop, but as fake as the way-too-obvious porn-queen boob job of the way-too-young model on whose body Palin's head is superimposed.
UPDATE VII: Now the Weekly Standard has linked Charlie's page. But what will he say about the latest shocking scandal?
