|Sarah Heath running in Saturday's SLRC half marathon|
Part of the reason I stopped writing about Palin was that I got sick of writing anything about her. Part of the reason is that she is not going to be the GOP 2012 nominee for president, no matter what. And another part of the reason is that I got tired of dealing with the edge of strangeness people who dislike her no matter what bring with them.
Case in point: Apparently, Saturday, Palin entered a running event in Storm Lake Iowa, called the Jump Right In Storm Lake Running Club Half-Marathon. She registered under her maiden name, probably because she just wanted to run without being bothered by the inevitable media attention her name being on the roster or club web site might have brought.
Leave it to The Immoral Minority to go right up to that edge of strangeness on this:
Is the picture of Sarah Palin running in Iowa the worst photoshop job EVER? was the initial headline, and Gryph dove right in:
This is such an amateurish job that I CANNOT believe that Van Susteren thought anybody would take it seriously.
So we all make noise about Palin looking sickly and possibly drugged yesterday and the day before, and then THIS picture suddenly shows up?
Didn't I have this effect on her once before when she was in Hawaii? Why yes I did!
Can somebody please ask Joe McGinniss is he is SURE that Sarah Palin does not read the blogs? Cause it kind of looks like she does!
I'm just saying.
When another picture emerged indicating Palin had run in the race, Jesse updated his post, linking to it, but by that time some of the bizarro-world commenters he is so sadly saddled with were off and running, setting records at this distance in inanity, and jumping over major hurdles, vaulting to lofty conclusions:
My spouse is a photoshop expert. That is strictly bush league. Fooled the fools, though. Saps.Cue the Twilight Zone theme for this one:
Looks like she is flying in after cutting through a bunch of people's yards after getting out of the car that sped her over to the finish line. Well the pee'ers believe she walks on water so why not expect them to believe she floats over grass?
Notice how she gained 20lb and is running incognito so no one will recognize her. Bwahahahaha! Like that would ever happen to the attention whore that she is.
Its so funny, Gryphen, how one troll comment jumped out at me yesterday - referring to Scarah as aThis commenter sees layers and layer of Byzantine deception in the picture's implications:
That was just before this pic came out...coincidentally.
Old Mavericky Palin can't even run on the roadway like everyone else. According to that "picture" her next step would put her flat on her face - unless she is able to run in culverts. Bad Photoshop indeed. I have been trying to figure out exactly what happened this weekend in Iowa. Even anon238's remarks create more questions than they answer. If Palin is so messed up, why not make some excuse and stay home. (I think she tried that with the COD diva meltdown - until it backfired/) Still, if her "handlers" are so concerned about her mental state, why not just put her on ice for a while and keep up the FB and Twitter assaults? Did Sarah need to show up in order to "refutiate" Cheney's prediction, or was it payback to a large donor to her Sarah PAC? Whatever. One thing is certain: her supporters in attendance at the restaurant meet and greet must have been bitterly disappointed when Sarah didn't at least get up and say a few words. So out of character for her. Can we hope that the nightmare is soon to be over? (Puleeze?)More disbelievers:
Ok, so Sarah Heath from Des Moine finished second in the 40-49. Why in the world would Sarah Palin run in a 1/2 marathon in a small town in Iowa and not say boo to anyone? No news outlet has picked this up yet. Who crossed the finish line as Sarah Heath?Coming to the next comment, I wasn't quite sure what it meant, as in the upper part of the thread commenters were trashing author Joe McGinniss for recently downplaying the importance of bloggers in the mix of Palin's dealings with social media and the web. I checked McGinniss' blog, and he has put up a post congratulating Palin on what does appear to be a commendable time in the run. Here's the IM comment:
If she faked running a half marathon what else could she fake? Talk about opening the door to questions about some of her other "claims".
Of course this photo is faked ... I won't use photoshop since I am not an expert ... but I have run in races; she is off the road, then you have a pack of runners, who kind of look fake themselves and walkers (older people, etc.) behind them almost like the photo came in three parts and was pieced together. It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen! And those of us who have been on the blogs for 3 years know that she reads them and responds : e.g., Trig without his glasses, then he (or one of the Trigs anyway) appears in glasses ONE TIME! Heck, she has even used terminology and phrases in her speeches that originated on the blogs. Plus, Gryphen, if not for your blog and what you write about why would you be her #1 Public Personal Enemy? You lucky duck! lol
All the people on the left side of the picture are walkers who are wearing long sleeve shirts provided at the sign up - they are way overdressed to be runners. The runners on the right side of the picture do not look like back of the pack runners. Sarah is way overdressed for a runner. Maybe she is hiding all the needle marks on her arms.
She is photoshopped in and stupid Joe McGinnis has fallen for it too.and more:
How lame brain is that now?
I doubt that this race requires a drug tests... They must have searched really hard to find an event they could drug her up enough to particpate and be photographed to spread the news. They try so hard to stay one step ahead of the bloggers...Sometimes I feel sorry for Jesse Griffin, in that his commenting community contains so many hostile, nihilistic personalities. Not today, though. He brought it on himself.
OMG, it's just amazing. Those meds Sarah took on Friday night have caused her height to increase, she can now float -- and she doesn't cast a shadow!
Truly godlike! I want some of that!
OTOH, when examined in Photoshop, it's just another Palin fake. Too many artifacts surrounding the image among other things. A reasonably good cut and paste job, but not expertly done. So sad.
And on and on the comments go.....
Hopefully it will be at least another 77 posts before I have to write about Palin again here.
Update: Ann Strongheart had some fun with the photo so many are taking too seriously - horns, tail and coffee mug:
