So Many Rumors

When an attractive woman gains national attention, especially one with conservative leanings or outright conservative beliefs, there is an almost automatic attempt to trash her image as a secret tramp. There are so many stories and people are on fishing expeditions to find scandalous pictures of her. Rumors are circulating that the pictures exist so I decided to do a search and see if they do.

The vast majority of the hits are "reel-in" sites for porno pay-sites. (ie free sites with no content used to draw in people looking for porn and send them on wild goose chases until they give up and pay.) Misleading draw-ins are their bread and butter.

There's even contests which include some interesting suggestions. (language warning!)

And you know, she’s totally gotta have a naked picture out there someplace. And if not, someone should quickly photoshop one up.

followed by a bit of ribald fantasies about her by the writer and then this line:

So, with THAT NOTE, we OFFICIAL LAUNCH THE SARAH PALIN NAKED PHOTOSHOP CONTENT! Create, inspire, share! Send us your hottest pics of Sarah Palin

The site in question does have a very poor resolution photo of a nude woman whom they first say is her then they say it isn't. There is also a picture of "her" in very tight mini-skirt that they acknowledge as photoshopped. Though other sites claim that it is real.

For starters the head doesn't even have the right proportion for the body but anyway it looked kind of familiar to me. I had seen that picture before but had to think about where.

Then it hit me! Some time ago I filled out a "Personals" questionnaire (foolish I know) and started getting a lot of spam from "Hot Women Your Age in Your Area" including what I assume to be stock pictures of "hot older women". There was one picture that appeared a couple of times a week and one of her pictures was still in the Delete box of my Outlook Express. (I am very negligent at keeping it cleaned out.) Does she look familiar?

Why the fishing expedition? Why photoshop pictures? They are determined to find something even if they have to create it. If it was really there it would be all over the net by now.

I could be wrong, but I don't think there are any really bad pictures out there. (Bikini pictures mean nothing and offend very few.) This is nothing more than a fishing expedition/smear campaign.

Palin is a credible threat to the Democrat's platform of "change." Where Obama chose someone from Washington's old guard, McCain actually picked someone who is committed to change!

They are in a panic! Palin ripped a hole in the Obama/Biden Balloon of Enthusiasm the size of Chicago, and the moonbats are scared to death.

Dude! That's hilarious! Totally busted on the fake photo.

Have you sent that to Malkin? She might ad it to her Palin Derangement Syndrome post.

I agree with Henry. Send them to Michelle, Shoprat. This is great detective work, my friend. Perhaps you should go into business as a Private Eye! :)

The liberals are desperate and because they are, they are making complete idiots out of themselves. LOL! It's a good thing they are so stupid!

You people are so foolish! Everyone knows that the second picture is photoshop. The real picture is the first one with Palin, but as you pointed out, the head doesn't have the right proportion for the body so they had to switch it to a different head.

She scares the hell out of the left. While Obama runs on a platform of change he grabs a 35 year party/Washington insider so tied up by lobbyists he can't talk without their permission.

Then McCain grabs a running mate who sacked half the political friends of the guy who got her the job in the Oil and Gas Commission, then took him out in the Governor's race. that's actual change, and the left can't stand the idea of it coming from A) the right, B) a woman on the right.

Crazy Politico is completely accurate. She scares the living shit out of the Left on most EVERY level imagineable.

There are more obvious photoshopped pictures of her but I have neither the time nor inclination to go looking for originals. Some of them I wouldn't know where to look and others I don't want to know.
