Sarah Palin on Newsweek
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.

Here's the thing... this picture does not even make me wonder how to "solve a problem like Sarah". It tells me she's fit and takes care of herself rather than sitting around eating crap all day and getting fat on politics the way so many others do. And how this picture shows she's "bad news for everyone" is also missed on me. Newsweek is sitting squarely on one side of the fence and the look naked when they're stupid.

So... why on Earth do you suppose Newsweek has to come out and proclaim that Joe is no joke? One should never have to say that about someone... to defend them against the obvious. He is a joke and he's not the most common sense kind of guy they are trying to say he is. He opens his mouth and a whole shoe store falls out.
And this one... this one just takes the cake. Is your baby racist? Are you kidding me??
