She was in Haiti over the weekend, as the guest of the Rev. Franklin Graham, to look at the humanitarian crisis there in the aftermath of the earthquake. However, the media went to work trying to create some kind of "scandal."
As reported by Kristinn at FreeRepublic.
The Associated Press transmitted a photo from Haiti of Palin captioned, "Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, center, has her hair done during a visit to a cholera treatment center set up by the NGO Samaritan's Purse in Cabaret, Haiti, Saturday Dec. 11, 2010. Palin arrived Saturday in Haiti as part of a brief humanitarian mission. Dieu Nalio Chery / AP"Yet the same media who is so willing to create a phony scandal to attack the former Alaska Governor/2008 Vice Presidential Candidate and first woman President-to-be is silent about the imagery of the President of the United States leaving a press conference, letting a former President take over because he is late for a party?
That photo and caption set off rabid attacks on Palin from the Huffington Post, the U.K.'s Daily Mail and, of course, Palingates.
The photo does indeed show Sarah Palin standing with her husband Todd as a woman whose face is obscured uses two hands to fix the hair on the right side of Palin's head.
However, one can observe that the woman is white, with her brown hair pulled back in a ponytail, wearing a white shirt with a bulky scarf and dark pants.
In other photos from Saturday, Todd and Sarah Palin's white, brunette, eldest daughter Bristol, who accompanied her parents on the trip to Haiti, is wearing the exact same clothing and ponytail as the "hair stylist" in the AP photo.
That's right, what the Palin-hating AP and others fail to report is that the "hair stylist" is Bristol Palin.
The AP photographer who sent the caption would have known that it was Bristol Palin, but by not mentioning her the AP was able to do a media hit on Palin but still be able to claim they told the "truth" with the caption.
...To reiterate, a daughter helps fix a loose strand of her mother's hair, and it becomes an international scandal. Amazing.
Does the media not think this is a troubling sign that Obama is sending this nation and the world? The leader of the free world is disengaged and uninterested in doing the job he was elected to do. Attending Christmas Party is more important to the President of the United States than attending to the nation's problems? At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed, or just lost their jobs, and facing tax hikes at the end of the year, the President of the United States turned his back on the nation and headed out to party.
And yet it is claimed by Obama worshipping liberals in the media (and some misguided Republicans) that Sarah Palin is unqualified to be President?
