    On January 15, Alaska governor Sarah Palin laughed along with an Alaskan shock-jock DJ who called her political rival Lyda Green a "cancer," a "bitch" and ridiculed her weight. (Green is a cancer survivor.)

    "People were so nice and were mortified. Newspapers that were never Lyda Green-friendly, they demanded that [Sarah] apologize," Green told Us.

    "You know what she said? She said, 'I'm calling to apologize. I hope you didn't misunderstand the radio program,'" Green says. "I told her, 'I didn't misunderstand.'"

    The Alaska state senator added, "It's not a good way to behave. Why would anybody call a shock jock?"

    So what did Green think when she heard Palin was John McCain's vice presidential candidate? "It's been very difficult to work with her," she tells Us Weekly. "I wish there had been more vetting."

    did you actually read the article? it is one of the worst pieces of trash I've seen. and does it matter to you that us mag is owned by the same guy who owns rolling stone and had contributed heavily to bho?

    here is the editor of us mag. getting embarrassed on fox news. I know it's a link to a blog but the video is there.

    didn't say that did i? the so called journalism of the piece is crap from an obviously biased source. the editor could not support any of the allegations in said piece. so whether it is true or not, we'll never know from this article in this magazine will we? and what exactly is the scandal?

    look this is a gossip rag on par with the national enquirer. there is no substance to this article and no effort to remain impartial. even the nyt published an article about the us ragazine piece appearing biased

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/08/business/media/08usweekly.html?ref=us

    but hey if you want to call it credible be my guest. plenty of kool aid to go around.

    oh no this must be another scandal it's in the national enquirer after all

    You guys sure jumped on the bandwagon when the national equirer broke the story about John Edwards which later proved to be true. There is always some truth to every story and why won't Palin talk to the media?
