Sarah Palinâ€™s Newsweek cover is receiving a lot of press.Â Sarah Palin on the Newsweek cover was a photo that she took for a magazine â€œRunners Worldâ€ and featured Palin in her running attire with her legs showing.Â Newsweek asked on the cover â€œHow Do You Solve a Problem like Sarah?â€
Sarah Palin attacked the Newsweek cover on her FaceBook account.Â You a have to ask yourself the question: is the cover really sexist, or is this another attention-grabbing distraction on the part of the former Vice Presidential hopeful and former Alaskan Governor?
Sarah Palinâ€™s Facebook attack read:
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 nowâ€¦
Do you think that the Sarah Palin Newsweek cover is sexist?Â Â While I personally donâ€™t think that the cover was sexist, I think that the publication could have used a better, more professional photograph for their cover.Â They could have at least asked for Palinâ€™s input as well. The article wasnâ€™t at all a positive article for Palin.Â If you donâ€™t realize that, you obviously didnâ€™t read the words on the front cover that read â€œSheâ€™s bad news for the GOP â€“ and for everyone else, tooâ€
Newsweek wanted to show readers that Palin distracts, deflects, and is an empty political shell.Â Although these are not the personal views I share, I still encourage readers to look up and read the article.Â Getting both sides of a story and seeing things from multiple aspects is particularly important in politics.
Of course, the drama surrounding the Newsweek cover distracts people from the core questions surrounding Palin, including â€“ will she run for President in 2012?
I guess we will have to wait to find out.
