Todd Palin offered blistering criticism Wednesday of a controversial new book about his wife, which he described to reporters as filled with "disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears."

The book, by author Joe McGinniss, is said to feature a number of controversial and dubious claims about the family, including reports of drug use and inferences that Sarah Palin had a fling before she was married with former NBA star Glen Rice, according to published reports.

The book has long been a sore point for the Palins: McGinnniss, while doing research for the book, moved into house next door to the family's Wasilla, Alaska home. The Palins, memorably, built a fence between the two houses in an effort to protect their privacy.
