Associated Press Aids Rabid Left In New Sarah Palin Scandal Hoax

There was that moment frozen in history when Joseph McCarthy went that “one giant leap” too far, and was asked, “Have you no sense of decency?”  And that question resonated with the nation, because this was a time when both political parties and the media actually had a sense of decency remaining.

Those days are long gone from the Democrat Party and the mainstream media.  Their souls swim in “having no sense of decency.”

Now all we have coming from them are demagogic lies and Goebbels-levels of propaganda:

Media Creates New Palin Scandal! Sarah Accused of Bringing Hairdresser on Haiti Trip
Sunday, December 12, 2010

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin traveled to Haiti this weekend as a guest of the Rev. Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse to spotlight the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the earthquake and cholera-stricken Caribbean (half an) island nation. Instead she has found herself embroiled in a scandal, accused of bringing a hair stylist on the trip to make herself look good for the cameras and “photo-ops.”.

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”

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.

The Palins and the Grahams in Haiti (“hair stylist” Bristol second from right):

Palin “has her hair done”:

The Daily Mail titled their story based on the AP photo and caption, Ready for Her Close Up…Sarah Palin Lands in Haiti (where they don’t care what her hair looks like)

The Huffington Post titled their attack on Palin, Reading the Pictures: Palin Does Haiti Cholera: How’s My Hair (and did AP lend a curl?). The AP reference in the headline is based on speculation in the article about whether the AP ran “scathing photo op-defying pictures of “the Sarah show?””

The raving lunatics at Palingates titled their hit piece, BREAKING NEWS: Palin Looks Good in Haiti.

To reiterate, a daughter helps fix a loose strand of her mother’s hair, and it becomes an international scandal. Amazing.

I don’t think that Sarah Palin should run for president in 2012.  I think she’s great, with a rare degree of common sense and the courage to square off with both parties to get things done.  But I literally don’t think the country deserves her at this point.

The left, the Democrats, the mainstream media, have come so completely unglued, and told so many demonic lies about Sarah Palin, that I don’t think she could overcome the vomit that has counted as “coverage” of Sarah Palin.

And they won’t stop.  They are so full of hate that it just oozes out of them.  And it has to keep spewing out.

When large and once-respected media outlets like the Associated Press deliberately insight demagogic hatred of an undeserving major political figure, we are degenerating into a truly dangerous place.

Let me just ask the Associated Press: have you no sense of decency?

    I respect your reason why you don’t think Sarah Palin should run, THAT THE COUNTRY DOES NOT DESERVE HER AT THIS POINT. And you are correct that the Left will not stop in their evil efforts to destroy her.

    I have thought Sarah Palin is the only person I see who has consistently opposed Obama and promoted Conservatism. After learning of her actual accomplishments as a public servant, I thought she has the convictions and will to fight to win. I also think she loves America like we do.

    At this point should she run and WIN. I think it would be the utter mercy of God toward us.

    We want as a candidate whoever drives the libs, the lib media and the rest of 20% of America (that is in this particular cult) absolutely apoplectic!

    and aside from the 20%ers (liberal cult) America does deserve Sarah!

    Like I said, I have nothing but admiration for Sarah Palin.

    That said, I hope she doesn’t run in 2012. I hope instead she continues to do what she’s doing now, which is fund-raising, king-making, and offering commentary and analysis.

    Mostly wrongly, the Democrats and the media have largely succeeded in creating a narrative about Sarah Palin. The polls currently show she would fare less well against Obama than any other Republican candidate. And that Obama – as vulnerable as he is – would handily defeat Sarah Palin were that the matchup. And I frankly haven’t seen any evidence that Palin can overcome the rabid coverage that distorts the people’s perception of her.

    That’s a shame, but I think it’s the reality.

    Further, I think she’s too young, and that she doesn’t have the necessary experience. Population-wise, Alaska is a tiny, tiny state that depends heavily on federal money to sustain itself. And Palin didn’t even finish her term as governor. Was she more experienced than Obama at the time Obama got elected president? “You betcha.” But how has a too-young and too-inexperienced president worked out for America???

    The other problem Palin has, on my view, is that she is largely disconnected with the conservative leadership in America. It’s not her fault; it’s not their fault. It is largely a matter of the vast distance between Alaska and the rest of the country. And as a result, I think she’d have a very difficult time really building momentum. Because Alaska is practically it’s own continent.

    With respect, the man or woman I want to see in the Oval Office is going to have a lot of gray hairs. He or she will have substantial political experience in a major state. He or she will have enjoyed tremendous success in the private sector. And he or she will be able to build a landslide-style following and even win Democrats.

    That’s a description of Ronald Reagan. It’s not a description of Sarah Palin. At least, it’s not one now.

    Sarah Palin has, like I said, a lot of common sense. I think she’d actually be a great president if she got the chance. But I don’t see her getting the chance anytime soon.

    All that said, I LIKE people who like Palin. I share Sarah Palin’s values. I want the things that she wants. I love the way she has – with a few words on a Facebook page – changed the entire political debate (e.g., “death panels”). I’m a huge admirer of hers, and would actually love to see her as POTUS in the future.

    I give more reasons why I fear a Palin run could have bad consequences in my comment to Robbie.

    Of course, the fear is that Sarah Palin could get the Republican nomination because Republicans are actually ready for the kind of real “hope and change” that the first female president could bring. But that Obama and the entire unhinged mainstream media Jospeh Goebbels propaganda machine would viciously attack her with unrelenting hate and lies, and destroy her.

    But you actually say something that I would have to consider: “it would be the utter mercy of God toward us” if Palin won.

    Sometimes, we humans think with our cynicism. But God can do anything. If God wants Sarah Palin to be president, she would be elected. Because God is God.

    For the past several years I have prayed, “Lord, please don’t give us the leaders that we deserve.”

    In 2008, God DID give us the leader that we deserved. And we are being doubly damned for it now.

    Make it your prayer that God show us mercy in 2012, rather than make 2008 the year that God truly began to make true Jeremiah Wright’s screed, “God DAMN America.”
