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

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!

Hey John, looks like you got the same type of weasly media we have.......

,,, 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".
