The New York Daily News’ Larry McShane writes that one of the more explosive revelations in the forthcoming Joe McGinnis tome, ‘”The Rogue: Searching for The Real Sarah Palin,” is a claim that ex-Hornets/Heat/Knicks F Glen Rice was amongst the sexual conquests of the future Governor of Alaska.

Palin bedded future pro hoops player Glen Rice while he was playing at the University of Michigan, the National Enquirer reports about the McGinniss book.

The sharp-shooting Rice – who spent one season with the Knicks – was playing in the annual “Great Alaska Shootout” while Palin was a sports reporter with Anchorage television station KTUU, the Enquirer said.

Their one-night stand over Thanksgiving weekend 1987 reportedly occurred in the dorm room of Palin’s kid sister at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Palin was described by a friend as the aggressor, with the pal reporting “she hauled his ass down,” the Enquirer said.

There’s not really much more to add, other than I’d be very happy to be amongst the few willing respect Rice’s privacy…if this wasn’t so funny.  How many other GOP candidates for Vice-President have slept with members of the 2000-2001 New York Knicks? How can we be certain there’s no romantic history between Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. and Rick Brunson?
