More PDS from the MSM

FreeRepublic: Media Creates New Palin Scandal! Sarah Accused of Bringing Hairdresser on Haiti Trip

Of course, folks here know that I am not a “Palinista.”  I like her, and would support her in a general election situation, but hope that she does not run for president in 2012.  That being said, one thing I do find absolutely fascinating is the mainstream media’s fascination with the former Alaska governor.

In this case, while in Haiti, someone with the Associated Press spotted Palin being attended to by someone fixing her hair.  Predictably, as pointed out by user “Kristinn” over at Free Republic, the following items turned up across the Internet:

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.

As it turns out, and as is wonderfully spelled out in photos and prose by “Kristinn” over at Free Republic, the mysterious “hairdresser” attending to Palin was indeed Palin’s own daughter, Bristol.  Mom, it seems, likely had a flyaway strand of hair in her eyes, and daughter was kind enough to fix it for her.  Harmless enough, but add a mainstream media photographer channeling paparazzi and hoping to catch the likely presidential candidate in an awkward situation, and we’ve got the latest example of Palin Derangement Syndrome.  The wire service caption:

“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”

Head on over to Free Republic.  See the AP photo and caption.  Then, go on over to HuffPo and the other sites — it really is amusing to see this visceral reaction that Palin receives from the left.  Heck, the prospect of four or eight years of PDS might be reason enough to sport a Palin 2012 sticker on my minivan.

    The more the MSM talk about these things the more irrelevant they become.

    We SURE don’t want her to get to looking like Oprah on her camping trip with Gail.
    Come on.

  3. Talk to the screen says:

    I would volunteer, repeat..volunteer, to travel with Sarah and be designated to keep the hair out of her eyes. No less a demeaning job than being the one to make sure Baracks teleprompter is carted around and made to work.

    Even with hair in her eyes, she has greater vision for this country….. sans communism.

  5. Boston Blackie says:

    Watching the left with PDS is even better than when they all had BDS!!
    I LOVE Sarah, I too would put her sticker on my car just to get their blood boiling. My husband is still amazed that I mentioned two days before McCain picked her that I had recently read an article about her and how I told him that McCain should pick her(we all knew he was going to pick a woman for VP).
    I think she should take over the GOP party from Michael Steele, that would drive everyone crazy haha.

    They worry about Palin as their unconstitutional pres’ plans unravel.

    RICHMOND, Va. – A federal judge declared the foundation of President Barack Obama’s health care law unconstitutional Monday, ruling that the government cannot require Americans to purchase insurance. The case is expected to end up at the Supreme Court.

  7. David Johnson says:

    That was Bristal fixing her mother’s hair, jeez… At least look at all the photos and pay attention to the scarf that she is wearing.

  8. Dee says:

    Apparently, there is no other news to report. I think the media can’t stand Palin because many people like her and she has taken on the “old boys”.

  9. Joe Biden says:

    3:01 THAT is a BIG effin’ deal.

  10. Secretaries of State unite says:

    Was the hair dresser natural born? Look into that.

  11. Bo and Luke Duke says:

    Dee, thank you for leaving the adjective ‘good’ off of ‘old boys’….

  12. Amonymous says:

    At least it was 100% American hair in her eyes.

    Michelle took far less to Spain.

  14. Gail B. says:

    Boston–I wrote the Republican Party and suggested Sarah Palin as Chair. I got a reply back that said my comment/suggestion would be presented to Michael Steele.

    Wonder what his comnment was?!

    Cold. (But true!)

    What is PDS? I’m from the Stone Age!
