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

Posted on 12/12/2010 5:57:01 PM PST by kristinn

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":

Photos via Palingates

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.

Wow. That IS bad. In its proper context it’s a cute photo of Sarah being helped by her daughter, with her husband by her side. Dirty pool.

Even if she had a hairdresser with her who cares? I am sure that not one of the many people in Mooshells group is there to do her hair on her trips.

Another Progressive deflection. Watch what one hand is doing, not the other. While the media is focusing attention on trivial news items, the Obama administration is positioning the Executive branch to seize power, but this is not news worthy.

Really dirty pool! I mean...lol...talk about embarrassing. The Palin haters must be reeling from finding out a dtr was helping her mom with her hair...oh the SHOCK! (Maybe they can get Palin on over working her dtr, or something else. lol)

I was all set to request of Sarah that she share her traveling hairdresser with hillary, who desparately needs some grooming help. Think I won't do that now.

I love Sarah Palin. I don’t know if she’s the best candidate out there for President. But wouldn’t it be fun if she won?

Don’t these people have anything else to do with their time? Seriously? don’t they have freezers to defrost or something?

Of course, pointing out that the hairdresser is actually Bristol will just unhinge the nutbars even further. They still are out of their minds over DWTS.

The photographer probably has a dozen shots of that scene and any one of them could have shown Bristol’s arm not over her face, but that would destroy the “scandal.”

maybe some of the other liberals out there should take a hair stylist with them or SOMETHING anyway. Actually, Sarah doesn’t need one...she looks great all the time.

You’re not the only one who thinks that.

My first reaction to the pics from Haiti last night, was that she even looks spectacular in jeans and a t-shirt.

GEEEZ! The libs are insane.
No lie is too big for libs.
Any lie will do to cause "damage" to conservatives.

How can you know when libs are telling lies?
If their lips are moving, they're telling a lie.

As for hairdressers, there is the Bill Clinton incident, John Edwards’s pricy cuts, and didn’t Hillary also have a hairdresser with her? And what about Pelosi’s facelifts? I am not sure if Michelle Obama’s hairdresser was among the huge numbers of people traveling with her.

Funny, just a posts below Christie Whitman says that Palin’s resignation shows “attitude” towards the voters and as such she (Palin) isn’t fit to govern (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2641669/posts). I guess all the stupid crap like this goes unnoticed by the esteemed Ms. Whitman.

What we need to do is find out who the AP person is, frame it and personalize it.

The only way to stop this is to do to them what they do to us.
