More ridiculousness from the Palin-Haters

Just when I think the lamestream media's hatred of Sarah Palin can't get any more ridiculous...

This weekend, Palin traveled to Haiti on a humanitarian trip with Reverend Franklin Graham and the Samaritan's Purse charitable organization.  The Haitians, still a long way from recovering from the earthquake, recently were dealt another blow after the outbreak of a cholera epidemic.  The Associated Press sent photographers, and this was one of the photos they published:

Note the photo's 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"

The AP needs to find a dictionary and look up the meaning of "journalism."  First of all, Sarah Palin isn't getting her "hair done" in this photo.  It's just a girl pushing a loose strand back in place.  As someone who has had long hair since high school, there's no way I would consider this getting my hair done.  If Sarah puts her hair in a ponytail, is that "getting an updo" now?

And what about the girl in the photo?  Who is she?

Let's look at another photo from the trip:

Who is that next to Todd Palin?  Hey, wasn't she on that dancing show?
Hmmm.  Same brown hair in a ponytail, same white T-shirt and jeans, same scarf as the "hairdresser"...yes, it's Bristol, Sarah Palin's daughter.

So basically, Bristol helps her mom fix her hair and the AP twists itself into pretzels trying to embarrass her.

The liberal derangement and paranoia over Sarah Palin continues, even after they were forced to admit that she wasn't really getting her hair done.  After seeing photos of Palin washing and sanitizing her hands, a Huffington Post commenter slammed her for being "primarily concerned, above all humanitarian else, about catching something."

Ummm, hello!  Palin was visiting a treatment center during a cholera outbreak!  Cholera!  Symptoms include sudden onset of severe diarrhea and vomiting, often causing severe electrolyte imbalances and dehydration, leading to death if not adequately treated.  And by the way, the World Health Organization and other medical organizations recommend thoroughly washing and disinfecting any hands that touch cholera patients, their bedding or clothes, etc.

So, yeah, that prissy little snob Sarah Palin didn't want to get cholera.  How ridiculous!  [insert eyeroll here]

Seriously, people.  This is the left-wing media's philosophy...their hatred is so deep and irrational that they are willing to attack a woman for taking basic health precautions so she doesn't bring a dangerous disease home with her (where, remember, she has a baby son).

Anyone want to take a bet what would happen if Michelle Obama had been on this same trip and Malia had fixed her mommy's hair?  Somehow I don't think we'll see Mrs. Obama taking a trip like this any time soon

(Hat tip to "kristinn" at the Free Republic, who had this great comment: "To reiterate, a daughter helps fix a loose strand of her mother's hair, and it becomes an international scandal. Amazing.")

Want to help the earthquake victims in Haiti?  Samaritan's Purse is collecting donations online for its humanitarian missions.
