Yahoo! New Zealand Calls Sarah Palin ‘Evil’
Mediaite ^ | 10 jUN 2011 | Tommy Christopher

Posted on 06/11/2011 10:54:13 AM PDT by mandaladon

A caption in a photo slideshow of “Celebrity Look-a-likes” sparked outrage among at least three New Zealand conservatives Friday night. The Yahoo! New Zealand feature contained a split-screen of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and comic actress Tina Fey, with a caption that read “Poor Tina – there’s something painful about resembling someone so evil.”

This is the thanks she gets for keeping the Russkies at bay for almost three years?

There are many adjectives that come to mind when discussing Sarah Palin, but I think even her most strident critics would agree that “evil” is a bit of a reach, especially for a New Zealander. What did Sarah Palin ever do to them? Maybe their captions are written by literate caribou.

Here’s the caption as it originally appeared:

The offending caption was first reported by the New Zealand Conservative blog at 7pm Friday night, and by 7:23pm, they were reporting that it had been taken down, proving that Palin’s fans are so dedicated, they can even reach into the future to quash attacks on their beloved.

While Yahoo! New Zealand may have removed the offending caption, there remains the fact that their slideshow doesn’t contain any Democratic former governors. Why not former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and Oscar winner Jodie Foster? Equal time!

Most Computer/IT/Media people are like the majority of women, and are cliquey socialists at heart.

"...sparked outrage among at least three New Zealand conservatives..."

Only the MSM could turn three people into a whole country...

Alinsky tactics: accuse your opposition of the crimes you yourself have committed, shifting the blame.

This is getting more and more like 1984 every day. Palin is their Emmanuel Goldstein.

Whoever was stupid enough to post a caption of Sarah Palin as ‘evil’ is a demented fool. The woman is simply a Republican politician - currently holding no office - and espouses politically conservative views. She has harmed no one and has withstood years of vicious attacks - like this one in New Zealand, of all places - on her intelligence, character and even her family. Why? What is so terrible about this mother of five who is a Christian conservative, a former vice presidential candidate, state governor and small town mayor as well as a popular media figure, due to her attractive appearance, buoyant personality and her personification of middle America and it’s values. Oh, wait, I think I just realized why the left hates Sarah Palin.

Yes, poor, poor Tina Fey.

How unlucky for her that she looks enough like Palin that she can become a hero of the left for portraying Palin in a negative light. If not for this, nobody would even remember who Tina Fey was and she would be lucky to be waiting tables at the IHOP.

The only thing I know about New Zeland is:
They don't have any snakes. . . . . None, Zero, Nada.
Some big movie star was going to do a movie over there and wanted to bring a snake. New Zeland said Hell No. No snakes.

Liberals think all conservatives are evil. Conservatives think all liberals are naive dolts.

With the left everything is up-side-down. What is good is evil and what is evil is good. So...Gov. Palin thanks the NZ lefties for the endorsement!

Tina Fey WISHES she looked like Gov Palin!!! No resemblance at all! In fact Tina is very unattractive compared to Sarah.

,,, I had to find this out on FR Don! I didn't see it in the news here at all. It's all Christchurch, Christchurch and Christchurch. There's been between 6000 and 7000 quakes since Sept 4 last year and the bigger ones are pretty much taking up the media's time.

It's an opinion of someone that Palin is evil. It's certainly not based on fact. She didn't send anyone's job to China or force taxpayers to bail out banks "too big to fail".
