Skip to comments.Media Creates New Palin Scandal! Sarah Accused of Bringing Hairdresser on Haiti Trip

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 think she looks HOT in a T-Shirt!!!
More amazing PDS by the Lamestream media.
I really think this is it!
Glad you found out. I broke the deception hours ago on Twitter against the trending Twitter perp.
@JennaGreen Getting her hair done? Nah, that’s just Bristol. Stop the lies. http://twitpic.com/3feipk #palin #tcot #teaparty @gretawire

I would love to see Sarah and Zero debate, heck I would pay money for that. She would rip the big zero to shreds that is why zero will not run against her...
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.”
the big zero has reggie love to help him out~!!
The AP, Daily Mail, HuffPo.....talk about a lack of credibility.
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.
Pure unadulterated propaganda from AP...not a first.
How many people did Michelle bring to India??
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.
Yes she does.
The PDS is amazing.
Liberals are morons. Always have been, always will be
ping for later
It runs in the family (remember the convention speech?). I'm surprised they haven't attacked Piper much. Yet.
The Bitch Squad attacks again.
