Sarah Palin as Newsweek cover girl again (Sexism, thy name is jourbalist)
The Washington Post's Post Partisan ^ | July 11, 2011 | Jonathan Capehart

Posted on 07/11/2011 9:16:57 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

As celebrity glamour shots go, Sarah Palin’s cover photo on this week’s Newsweek is danged good! The best-selling author and reality-TV star looks young and vibrant. Her devil-may-care countenance aided and abetted by the wind conspicuously blowing hair back. And while her outfit might be laid back, there’s no doubt she’s in total control. But when Palin’s cover shot is viewed through the prism of presidential politics, it’s a dud.

Folks want to be able to envision someone sitting in the Oval Office.

They don’t necessarily want to envision them in the pages of Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive 2011” or Maxim. She can’t possibly be taken seriously as a presidential contender dressed like that, especially since this is the second time she has graced Newsweek in a less-than-presidential pose. But let me move away from the superficial to the substance of what the half-term governor has to say in the Newsweek interview. I’m particularly incensed by the lunacy of her comments on the impending default of the United States.

“It is not the apocalypse,” she said, and questioned the need for the urgent negotiating sessions Republicans and Democrats were conducting in search of a debt-limit agreement (ongoing at press time). “The fact is that we have $2.6 trillion in revenue coming in, and if we just use some common sense there — take that revenue, service the debt first, take care of national priorities — we don’t have to increase debt.”

So now Jonathan thinks Gov. Palin is the editor of the only worth $1 magazine Newsweek? And ever hear Mr. Obama referred to as "half-term Senator Obama" or "failed" community organizer? He's both, of course.

Capehart knows nothing about Sarah Palin or why millions of people are supporting her. He needs to chill out...maybe go to a Liza Minnelli concert or order some new drapes.

Jonathan is openly gay so he cannot have the appreciation for a beautiful woman that straight men can. And Sarah Palin is one beautiful woman.

You’re thinking about Gerbalists...you devil. They are usually teabaggers, too, not so co-incidentally.

Capehart is holding out for Boy George. I guess the term “sugar daddy” caught his attention.

“Jourbalist” is perhaps the greatest term ever coined to describe a homosexualist reporter.

Oh, Democrats have made good, bad and bad, good. EVERYTHING they do (which leads to nihilism, dysfunction and destruction of civil societies and freedom) is, of course, good.

That, by itself, is a howler. Libs turn every single one of their presidential candidates into a sex symbol. Obama was portrayed as a sex symbol. Back in 92 Clinton and Gore were portrayed as sex symbols. Its a constant pining for another sexy, young, liberal John Kennedy clone. And remember how the Libs got all hot and bothered about JFK, Jr.--a stupid Himbo if there ever was one--running for the Senate or Congress in New York.

The rest of the article is typical Lib garbage that has been repeated over and over and over. Not worth talking about.

Interesting, now that you mention it. I wonder why, too.
