Politically-speaking I could not disagree with Sara Palin any more.
However, I would like to say that this woman has taken an amazing amount of hard-blows from the left. It would be more impressive in her own personal character if she refused to play the victim over the matter, but there is no doubt these things occur.
I am for focusing on the facts, as I see them at this time.
The fact is it makes no sense what Sara Palin said to Oprah about her reasons for leaving the governor’s office in Alaska.
This notion that her political advocacy would be hampered by resigning from office due to fact that ethical violations would have been filed is absurd.
The only logical conclusion that can be drawn from her statement is that her political advocacy would promoting something widely recognized as unethical due to fact that if your cause is just and more motives only non-violent advocacy of ideals you have nothing to fear in defending your case should you be called to question for your actions.
The Governor of Alaska has many, many times the ability to effect social change and promote political advocacy of a private citizen relying on namesake leftover from the 2008 Campaign.
The facts of the matter are that the former-Governor of Alaska still refuses to give a cogent or logical reply to a simple question.
Sara Palin also retains that the simple question, “What do you read?” is somehow an insult on her.
This was a great opportunity for Sara Palin to promote her local newspaper and other press outlets that may go under-looked. She instead continues to only be vague about rather simple questions.
Now putting all that aside, I don’t think that taking an image from Runner’s World on the cover of Newsweek was a very wise move.
This just feeds into the false notion that Sara Palin doesn’t get a “fair shake” in the “liberal media.”
If anything the “liberal media,” which is a misnomer, doesn’t get enough objective critics who focus on facts where many are clear to raise.
In a previous post I said that people should pick up a copy of that Newsweek with the Anna Quindlen and disgraced Governor Mark Sanford to read, so you could get a grip on what the heck is going on right not in politics.
As for this issue of Newsweek, I suggest instead buying a National Inquirer instead.
MediaMatters.org has covered this issue quite well:
Making matters worse is the equally offensive headline Newsweek editors chose to run alongside the photo — “How Do You Solve a Problem like Sarah?” — presumably a reference to the Sound of Music song, “Maria,” in which nuns fret about “how” to “solve a problem like Maria,” a “girl” who “climbs trees” and whose “dress has a tear.”
Now, this photograph may have been completely appropriate for the cover of the magazine for which the picture was apparently intended, Runners World. But Newsweek is supposed to be a serious newsmagazine, and the magazine is certainly not reporting on Palin’s exercise habits.
I don’t believe Sara Palin is a viable candidate for any major political office.
Her disinterest in facts and honesty being the reason for this.
Call me strange, but I don’t think Sara Palin’s legs are “news worthy.”
I’m just saying that things like this Newsweek cover are fodder for all these false-news hounds out there painting on their wild canvas.
