Sarah Palin Newsweek Cover: A Distraction Dubbed “Sexist” by Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin’s Newsweek cover is receiving a lot of press.  Sarah Palin on the Newsweek cover was a photo that she took for a magazine “Runners World” and featured Palin in her running attire with her legs showing.  Newsweek asked on the cover “How Do You Solve a Problem like Sarah?”

Sarah Palin attacked the Newsweek cover on her FaceBook account.  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 Palin’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 now…

Do you think that the Sarah Palin Newsweek cover is sexist?   While I personally don’t think that the cover was sexist, I think that the publication could have used a better, more professional photograph for their cover.  They could have at least asked for Palin’s input as well. The article wasn’t at all a positive article for Palin.  If you don’t realize that, you obviously didn’t read the words on the front cover that read “She’s bad news for the GOP – and for everyone else, too”

Newsweek wanted to show readers that Palin distracts, deflects, and is an empty political shell.  Although these are not the personal views I share, I still encourage readers to look up and read the article.  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 – will she run for President in 2012?

I guess we will have to wait to find out.
