Sarah Palin's Hair is NOT Thinning, but Keith Olbermann's is!
Psssst, Keith Olbermann is really bald - pass it on. I'll explain at the end of his post. But Anonymous sources swear it's true - that should be good enough for the New York Times right?
This all leads up to another despicable Sarah Palin rumor.
It was such a low blow disguised as concern that I didn't even want to address it on this blog, but the insane claim that Sarah Palin is so stressed out that she is "losing weight and her hair is thinning" is still being perpetuated over the Internet...AND...in the main stream media.
One June 12 the New York Times wrote this crap -
"Friends worried that she appeared anxious and underweight. Her hair had thinned to the point where she needed emergency help from her hairdresser and close friend, Jessica Steele.
“Honestly, I think all of it just broke her heart,” Ms. Steele said in an interview at her beauty parlor in Wasilla, the Beehive."
Since that article, Jessica Steele, owner of The Beehive and a good friend of Governor Palin's has been letting the world know - it is a lie. She never said such a thing.
Check out Jessica's Twitter feed and her tweets. Just today she wrote "Media Myth: Sarah needed emergency treatment from Jessica her hairdresser I never said this the NYTs did."
If that is not clear enough, here are some past tweets.
But that didn't stop the insipid lie from spreading like cancer through the Internet. Our friends at "Conservatives 4 Palin" searched "Palin Hair Thin" on the Internet and came up with almost 400,000 hits. I just tried it again with the same results - 392,000 to be exact.
Some headlines read:
"Palin Suffered Thinning Hair and Weight Loss Due to Personal, Political Turmoil" - Chattahbox.com
"Sarah Palin Underweight, Anxious, Needed "Emergency Help" for Thinning Hair" - The Huffington Post.Com
"Sarah Palin lost weight & was balding due to stress" - Examiner.Com
There was a sickness in the gleeful re-posting of the New York Times big lie. It was as if those who relayed the rumor wished it to be true. That they hoped their vitriolic had not only knocked Sarah Palin out of the ring, but caused permanent damage.
Fortunately, neither is true. Citizen Palin will be have a bigger platform untethered from Alaska then she did as Governor. And as for the claim that she is somehow physically ill from the stress. Did you see Runner's World Magazine?
Does this woman look like the stress is taking a physical toll?
But I saved my favorite fool for last. Watch Keith Olbermann's feigned concern for Palin's health -
Doberman, the TV attack dog at the end of a democratic leash, was dying to pass on the underweight, thinning hair rumor, but knew it was low even for him. You see, in Doberman's misogynistic mind, the worst thing you can do to a woman is attack her weight and hair, so he pretended to be concerned. Olbermann tried his hardest to furrow his brow, but the botox prevented it. Still he did use his "concerned voice."
Here is what I am concerned about - Keith Olbermann's botox, eyebrow waxing and hair implants show an over-concern about his appearance. "Sources close" to Olbermann say he is overly concerned with his appearance and they worry that he will overdo cosmetic treatments like Michael Jackson or the Catwoman. "Close friends" also tell the Sarah Palin Blog that Olbermann likes to dress up like Michelle Obama late at night so he can pretend that he actually does sleep with the President.
Please pass these reports on - I am deeply concerned about Keith. You should see my face - I AM furrowing my brow, jealous Keith?
