I assume you mean the “stripper shot” pictures? According to Fox news, yes, they are Reuters.

“Are these appropriate pictures from major wire services? Would women’s groups tolerate these kinds of pictures if this was a Democrat candidate?

No...I don’t think so either.”

Well, you know... I don’t really WANT to see similar shots of Joe Biden...

...but to each his own, I always say.

I don’t know about you but, I have been noticing a lot of this lately. A push to may Sarah as just another skirt.

Greg Gutfeld from Red Eye was on Fox and Friends this morning discussing this. He said “you know they arent’ Hillary’s legs because you can see the kids face”!

Don’t hate her because she’s beautiful...;-)

I don’t get the “perspective” of that photo? I mean what is it supposed to portray other than the fact Sarah and Cindy have legs most women (including myself) would kill for!

While your point is a valid one, and while I agree with all you said; I think the ‘Rats just have a case of the green-eyed-jealously that NOT ONE ‘Rat woman has a set of pins like Sarah’s.

We never saw shots like this of Hillary when she was running...............

I know it’s controversial to notice the fashion sense of women candidates, but doesn’t Sarah seem like she dresses much more nicely that Hillary? Hillary made those pantsuits her trademark. I don’t think Hillary wears those pantsuits when she’s in the Senate.

I know this is woman’s cross to bear, as far as clothes and image and all that. Men seldom if ever are called to task on their appearance.

the left wants everybody to associate sarah palin with sex, preferably kinky sex - recall the purient smearing they have been doing. This tends to reduce people’s opinion of her and diminish her effectiveness.

the leftist media and their co conspirators in hollywood are going to be real disappointed when their efforts to destroy Palin fail. Regardless of what happens next month, she has weathered the onslaught and I suspect it’s going to be a case of “Was mich nicht umbingt, macht mich starker”. Should she want to, she can be a real player on the national political scene for the next twenty years.

Heard a good line on Fox News this morning...

"Well, obviously those aren't Hillarys ankles, otherwise you wouldn't see the kids face."

Spewed a mouthful of coffee on that line...

Does not matter. It will backfire. Some people will vote for her because she’s a conservative, some will vote because she has the looks. Some will vote for both reasons. The more they push the sex angle it will make her all the more attractive to that particular voter. It won’t phase conservatives a bit.

There was a time, not too long ago, when the point of photojournalism was to give people a visual representation of an event, in order to support a verbal description of the event. Nowadays, photojournalists try to “tell a story”, and shoot from all kinds of odd angles and use various tricks to inject their own opinion and agenda into the photographs.

Frankly, the result is worthless. I don’t really care what story a photojournalist wants to tell. If I want his opinion, I’ll beat it out of him. An undistorted photograph of an event can be revealing, but it is impossible to glean any useful information from news photography these days, because the photojournalist is constantly manipulating the situation and standing in the way.

Of course, it is far worse the last month or so. The leftists in the media are going completely bonkers over Barack Obama and they are throwing everything they can think of at Sarah Palin. Hopefully, it is becoming clear to even the most disinterested observer that the main stream media is no longer to be trusted, and that they will manipulate, cheat and lie at every opportunity to advance their agenda.

Did those pictures remind anyone else of posters from the movie “The Graduate”. Check out the expressions on the young men’s face in the second and third photos here...

Now take a look at the movie poster.

conservatives will vote for pelin regardless, independents will vote for whom they are comfortable - by associating her as cheap and common, this will adversely affect those who haven’t made up their minds.

it’s mind control, regardless of whether it affects us - it affects some peoplle.

Maybe it will be a real turn on for males who think she is sexy and vote for her on that alone. Who knows? The MSM just may have shot themselves in the foot by doing this.

Yep. But it's so blatant that it's backfiring. Al Reuters has sunk to paparazzi status.
