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

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.
Exploding libtard heads is great entertainment. Just wait until she is #45. I’m gonna invest heavily in popcorn. :)
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.
That was maybe the cutest sceen ever. And the left DID attacker Piper for it.
Good Lord Almighty.
All I can say is... More proof that she lives in the heads of the libs...
I hope she brings a shotgun. Who knows what kinds of predators exist in that space between their ears.
...but you repeat yourself.
I used to want to vote for her because I thought she would be a great President- now I want to vote for her to watch the liberals’ heads explode
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.
Meanwhile, our Dear Leader and his “lovely” wife take a posse of thousands to India and Indonesia on our dime and not a peep out of these same jourbalists. They’re so far into the tank for him they’ve grown gills.
Hey! That's my line! Just ask onyx!
I seem to recall Tipper Gore traveling to a Hurricane ravaged Carribean nation, setting up a tent (for the cameras) and then sneaking off to a nice hotel to sleep in comfort.
But, the LA Times/Newsday cover for Clinton...(yet they can’t find Obozo’s BC)
Clinton Haircut Caused No Big Delays, Records Show
Metropolitan Digest / LOS ANGELES COUNTY NEWS IN BRIEF
July 01, 1993
President Clinton’s haircut on Air Force One at Los Angeles International Airport caused no significant delays of regularly scheduled passenger flights, according to federal records obtained by New York Newsday.
It can never be said that the Palin haters aren’t creative.
Next she'll misspell POTATO!!!!!!
That was so cute! So loving.
Ok...Sarah is wearing a T-SHIRT and JEANS so of course she’s worried about how her hair looks...sure, ok, right! What a bunch of crap. I saw that picture online earlier and knew it was her daughter. How stupid does the press look now? What complete idiots!!!!!!
Former president Bill Clinton, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Senator John Kerry get clipped at Cristophe Salon in DC. Cristophe himself flies in every few weeks from Los Angeles to cater to some heads of state. (He’s not the only Hollywood hair guru here: Michael Canale, colorist to Jennifer Aniston and Friends costar Courteney Cox, comes to Toka in Georgetown every five weeks.
A twofer: Stupid and hateful.
Remember how the eneMedia reported about when Edwards charged an exhorbatant amount at a spa called (IIRC) "The Blue Saphire?"
Oh, yea...they wouldn't report it.
