AP attempt to smear Palin blows up in their face
Palin was shown in an AP
photo supposedly 'getting her hair done' by a hair stylist while visiting a cholera center in Haiti, according to the AP
caption released with the photo. The obvious goal was to show that Palin was intent only on looking good for the photo op. A number of news outlets, including the HuffPo
and The Daily Mail
ran with that false story. It turned out that the 'hair stylist' was in fact Bristol Palin, who was just straightening up her mom's disheveled hair before they got their picture taken.
piece, with a rather amusing attempt at misdirection in the 'update':
* I have the right to live, thus I have the right to defend my life from attackers who would take it from me.
* I have the right to my private property, thus I have the right to defend my property from thieves who would take it from me.
* I have the right to self-determination, thus I have the right to defend my liberty from tyrants who would take it from me.
* The only usable tools for these tasks are guns, and thus I have the right to shoot anyone who would take my guns from me.
