I thought I already covered this, but I guess I didn’t.

Former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband ofmore than three decades, Todd Palin, quietly finalized their divorce four months ago, court records have revealed.
The case is sealed from public view, but a publicly available docket shows that their divorce was granted on March 23 following a non-contested hearing, PEOPLE first reported.
Todd Palin filed for divorce on September 5, 2019 – his birthday – citing ‘incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.’
The 55-year-old was seeking joint custody of their now 12-year-old son, Trig, and an equal division of their assets, his initial complaint stated.
All other documents in the case were made confidential after it was sealed, however the docket reveals that no child support was issued.
As I said at the top I really thought I had already closed the book on the Palin marriage and divorce, but I guess I did not write about it after all.
So yeah they are officially divorced which of course I predicted was coming way back in 2009.
It is my firm belief that for the last ten years the couple has mostly stayed together out of spite, as there has been no real love between the two for at least that long.
According to various pictures on the internet, it appears that Sarah spends the majority of her time outside of Alaska, and seems to do very little actually.
As for Todd, well Todd has for all intents and purposes gone off the grid.
I have no idea what he is doing and really don’t care at this point.
For my part, I was essentially ready to stop writing about them after this. (Link.)
Once I had finally proven that I was right, I more or less wanted them to drop off the face of the earth.
Despite attempts to turn this couple into some heroic duo who raised themselves up by their bootstraps to take their place as the next big thing in GOP politics, we were able to reveal that it was all a lie and that there was never anything admirable about either one of them.
That was actually a very important achievement at the time, though of course, it seems almost quaint while living in the shadow or the Trump presidency.
So hopefully this is the last post I will ever have to write about Sarah and Todd Palin, though I fear they will never let me ignore them for long.
