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.

In that photograph Sarah Palin looks much more aggressive and more serious than any of Obama playing basketball with hand-picked college boys or friends.

Obama was not a starter in high school and was only put in as a substitute when his team was far ahead and could not lose the game if his coach put him in.

Obama could not have made the JV team where I went to school

One quick hip under the basket and he would have been way up in the upper bleachers

Opposing coachs would sneak in their spies down to watch our practices - and for laughs two of us would move out to halfcourt for a few minutes and loft a series of deadly undefendable halfcourt hook trickshots (that we never used in a game) to spook them

Gosh, I messed up on my other comment which should have been ‘been there, done that’!!

None of my kids played basketball, so I had little interest in it.

It is mostly awareness, speed, repetition, practice

You may have seen a few older men on TV that can stand and sink dozens and dozens of long shots without a miss

same with my parents and one of my sisters. My brother and two other sisters are basically apolitical, which is better than the likely other option.

Born and raised in a state employees AFSCME union home, so I guess that has a lot to do with it. Main difference is that my parents aren’t off the deep end totally and actually did work for their paycheck.

Recall that during the 2008 campaign while Obama was looking for voters in Germany.....

The MSM showed him on TV and print making a basket -

What they did not tell the public was that Obama had just missed on six (6) count ‘em - (6) so-called “practice shots”!

She has become a close friend of the Palins and was on the trip with them. You may see a lot of new video.

They showed Sarah, Bristol, Todd, Franklin, and Greta as the Haitian children opened their Christmas presents -

I can see why AP and rest of the radical left MSM attempted to distort and kill any good honest coverage of this -

Yes, I can understand the lefties hating all this good media from the trip, even if they try to deride it it won't work.

I saw a picture of Angelina Jolie when she was in Haiti and she was all dolled up and looked nice. Never heard bad things about that I'm sure.

I am sure that Angelina Jolie just ran a comb through her hair and was all ready for her closeup!

FYI, Greta did a great piece on the Palins in Haiti...

And of course, slammed AP.

Here’s the site, will send video when up.

Re: “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”

*******************

It’s true, the left will lose its mind over Bristol being in Haiti — they pretended concern for her young son when she was on DWTS so imagine how they will pounce on her trip to Haiti.

Perhaps the child was spending ‘quality time’ with his numbskull ‘father’ while Bristol was in Haiti?
