Everyone has commented on the cover photo of Sarah Palin that Newsweek editors used — a photo from a Runner’s World spread taken during the campaign.
Whatever the intentions of the left-wing Newsweek editors, I think Sarah looks fabulous.
The truly tasteless photo of Palin that no one is talking about is inside the magazine on p. 33, illustrating Christopher Hitchens’s broadside against Palin populism:
The dregs at MSNBC tried and failed to get away with faked photos of a sexualized Sarah Palin. Newsweek’s weasels found a way to evade responsibility for their rank sexism by using a photo of a real Palin doll in schoolgirl regalia.
Just another manifestation of Female Conservative Derangement Syndrome.
And no, it isn’t “playing the victim” to expose their bigotry.
It’s calling them out.
