Sarah's Lust for Attention – How Low Can She Go?
Sarah Palin's disgraceful photo-op visit to Haitian cholera victims is a new low, even for this shameless publicity hound.
Her whirlwind tour was carefully orchestrated, with all the right clips and sound bites, to show her sympathizing and calling for action, while having only the most carefully controlled contact with the cholera victims themselves.
Only Fox News (her employer) had full access to this media-diva while she posed for her close-ups. Questions were ignored, and only carefully prepared statements made it into the public record. Strangely, for a visitor to Haiti, she appeared to be surrounded almost entirely by white faces. This whole disgusting farce could have been shot in a studio in Hollywood (or by a Madison Avenue ad agency).
What inspired her to sink to this level? If it was to show her compassionate side, the effort was a miserable failure, and instead gave a glimpse into a cold, scheming woman with a monster ego, who has no qualms about using the dead and dying to further her ambitions.
Sarah Palin is obviously eyeing the highest levels of politics, quite possibly the presidency. She has spent the last two years building her image by keeping herself constantly in the public eye. Whatever credibility she may have achieved just got wiped out.
This Haitian fiasco shows how unfit she really is to hold public office. The nation doesn't need this sociopath in the White House..
