Here Is A Post About Sarah Palin And… What Now… The Newsweek Magazine

by Jim Newell

It’s all Palin material out there, friends, sorry. Thousands of available Caribou Barbie blog items, swirling in the RSS feeds, looking for capture. This one: is the Newsweek cover here super sexist, as Sarah Palin claims it to be? Kind of, yes! It’s odd for Newsweek to just steal the leggiest insert photo from an old issue of Runner’s World and slap it on their cover. It doesn’t really “fit.” Eh, Newsweek just wants outraged links, we suppose. Sorry.

Am I the only one who doesn’t find Palin attractive on any level, and actually find her…unattractive? Yech! If anything, this Newsweek cover’s offensive because Palin’s just so unattractive to look at. Does her rampant stupidity make her more unattractive to people, or what?

thehelveticascenario November 17, 2009 at 4:47 pm

She’s definitely an alignment tool of some sort.

Tundra Grifter November 17, 2009 at 4:48 pm

Why aren’t any of the right wing gasbags upset over using the American flag as a photo prop?

It’s just tossed over the back of the chair like a daytime Snuggie.

And why did The Gov’nor agree to pose with The Flag so inappropriately used?

And where the hell is her flag lapel pin? Huh?

For shame, Newsweek, for stone cold stealing the degrading front cover of another magazine to whom Sarah gave her express permission to publish, redistribute, and circulate as it and she saw fit. How could y’all continue to promote such an obviously sexist image that Sarah was totally okay with being published, redistributed, and widely circulated when she was first contacted by Runner’s World?

From Herself’s Facebook page:

Newsweek
Yesterday at 7:59pm
The choice of photo for the cover of this week’s Newsweek is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, this “news” magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant. The Runner’s World magazine one-page profile for which this photo was taken was all about health and fitness – a subject to which I am devoted and which is critically important to this nation. The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw attention – even if out of context.

- Sarah Palin

SayItWithWookies November 17, 2009 at 4:59 pm

I guess they didn’t send out their own photographer because someone would’ve had to tell her that the article is about what a liability she is. And defining “liability” could’ve taken hours.

One Yield Regular November 17, 2009 at 5:00 pm

I like the subhead. Not Sarah’s, Newsweek’s. “She’s bad news for the GOP.” So now even middle-of-the-road weekly news pamphlets recognize her toxicity.

fishskicanoe November 17, 2009 at 5:02 pm

She’s the dumb box of rocks that posed for it. Why wasn’t it sexist of her to do the photo gig? Why doesn’t she take responsibility for her own actions? Oh,that’s right,she’s a conservative. Only other people have to be responsible for their actions… and for hers, too.

AxmxZ November 17, 2009 at 5:04 pm

Oh yeah, she’s a bad bad girl… uh huh… *fap* *fap* *fap*

engulfedinflames November 17, 2009 at 5:05 pm

[re=460925]thefrontpage[/re]: I had this conversation with a guy (in his 60′s) last night . He thinks she’s hot, I have never found her to be anything but repulsive. He thinks it’s my ideology, I know it’s because I’ve had really bad experiences with insincere women who use whatever physical attraction they have to manipulate shallow dumb guys like me.

[re=460948]JMP[/re]: I’m like you in this respect. She is a somewhat attractive woman (nice legs, pleasant smile), but when she opens her mouth and tells you where she stands, she becomes instantly undesirable…

I think we saw this in the campaign. To men, she was a MILF and they stopped listening when she started talking.

[re=460971]chascates[/re]: Once again, to Palin (and fans) “sexist” means anything said about Sarah that she doesn’t like. It definitely does not mean forcing rape victims pay for the investigations themselves, though.

PrairiePossum November 17, 2009 at 5:11 pm

But it’s all the media’s fault. The media doesn’t like me. They ask me the hard questions about reading and the Bush doctrine. And it’s all the media’s fault because they don’t take me seriously. They put me on the cover in my shorty shorts. It’s the media’s fault because they don’t give my kids privacy when I tote them to political events and showcase them for the public. And the media keep sending me FOIA requests and asking questions about government ethics. The media should not expect so much of me when I travel around the country whorin’ my book to the media.

slappypaddy November 17, 2009 at 5:13 pm

wake up, sheeple, this bimbo’s going to be our next president, which, coincidentally, will also make her the last president, as once she is elected this country will come apart at its regional seams in a civil war that will make yugoslavia look like a slap-fest between pampered schoolgirls.

just joking. maybe.

i’m going to go hang myself now and beat the rush.

Dangerous November 17, 2009 at 5:13 pm

Sarah Palin is a very attractive woman whose other attributes render her undesirable on so many levels that her physical appearance doesn’t matter.

Is there a politician better made for modern MSM? I think not. She no sense of hypocrisy or the truth and is ready to feed the 24/7 news cycle endlessly.

I can only hope that her daughters can find some kind of stable personalities in spite of her example.

Mickey7 November 17, 2009 at 5:13 pm

It’s a tacky and unattractive cover in more ways than can be counted and Newsweek was stupid to use it. I suspect they just needed the boost in attention. As far as Sarah thinking it’s sexist, there is nothing more sexist than to assume you are entitled to important positions based only on your ability to wink and manipulate men (majority of Republican men find her qualified for president, a majority of Republican women do not). Being unwilling to work to earn your stripes is the most cynical sexism of all.

Shortly after Sarah’s big Coming Out party last year at the Repub convention, I inadvertently made a rightwing co-worker lose his woody when I told him she reminded me of Peg Hill. The look on his face was suddenly as if the porn I’d given him turned out to be starring his mom! Ever since then I’ve used the line to generally good effect; I think the true death knell to her ostensible sex appeal will be when she becomes the new Liza Minelli…for trannies!!

The choice of me as Vice Presidential candidate is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, John McCain has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant.

The out-of-context McCain approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn’t judge a candidate by its cover, gender, or color of skin.

But then of course, you wouldn’t be able to cry and blame other people, which has obviously become the story of your life.

[re=460957]EarBucket[/re]: “Jesus Christ, how can she be mad about a sexist photo THAT SHE POSED FOR?”
Dear EarBucket,

Sarah posed for that picture for Runners World. It’s a sports magazine, like the muscle ones the gays read. That makes it okay. Newsweek is an entirely different context. It is a serious organ of the bourgeois press. Posting her gams on the cover of this serious magazine encourages the idea that serious people should not take Sarah seriously, but should just look at her gams. That is sexist, sexist and sexist, too.

Yours sincerely,

Jesus Christ

Aurelio November 17, 2009 at 6:25 pm

“You know, Sarah, you DID pose for this photo, and you DIDN’T have to wear hot pants. You could have worn sweat pants,…blah blah.”

The cover isn’t sexist, but the picture itself is replete with atavistic, patriarchal imagery. I can’t think of a single picture that represents better how horrible that woman is. If there is one, please don’t nremind me. My stomach may yet settle in time for breakfast.

Frumious Canbrasnatch November 17, 2009 at 6:53 pm

[re=461017]saggyboobedhag[/re]: no, they photoshopped her bottom half skinnier. This is the custom of the magazine media when they are forced to deal with any super-grossly icky fat chick above a size 2.

Newsweek digging up this photo for the cover is something beyond tacky, period. That said, for Sarah to complain about a picture that she took is something more than stupid. This is one of those situations where it’d be great for others to be angry, for her, and for her to shut the hell up about it.

Sarah likes to think herself the most talented player in the game of American politics. Well, what she needs to do is accept that Newsweek beat her, this time. Don’t hate the player, Sarah; hate the game. Did Sarah just get dunked on? You betcha!

CNN Wolf Blitzer did a very good tweet on Sarah Palin and her gams — the fact that looking at them is sexist. Did you see it?

This is what happens when Newsweek fires it’s Photo Editors. They start using stock photography and don’t think longer than 30 seconds about the result.

Last week it was reported in PDN that “Newsweek director of photography Simon Barnett, a nine-year veteran of the magazine, says he will leave his position after the end of the year. Three other Newsweek photo staffers—deputy director of photography Susanne Miklas, photo coordinator Leah Latella, and senior photo budget administrator Peter Schleissner—lost their jobs in layoffs this week.”

Photo shoot for Runners World.
Bit tough running with a body shaper girdle thingy isn’t it?

I guess now my erection is sexist. Great.

I suppose they’re tryin’ to say: Is she runnin’ or is she just posin’?

[re=461220]the problem child[/re]: I with you on that. The original Runners’ World photo had human, middle-aged saggy-baggy knees. These knees have had PhotoShop botox.

Sarah Palin will do anything to draw attention – even if out of context.
–The Media

I wish the media would stop judging books by their gender and color, too. Pantone and chromosomes simply can’t indicate all the quality.

Does no one get the memos?

Now I understand why she was upset that they had used that picture…it is really about this statement on the cover of Newsweek: How do you solve a problem like Sarah? She’s bad news for the GOP…and for everybody else, too.

[re=461220]the problem child[/re]: Hey fuck you. These shapely middle-aged legs of mine could put that youthful skull of yours into a headlock that would make blood burst from your ears before you could even think of opening your mouth.

You like me, right now, you like me!
