Sarah Palin circa 2010
By Gary P Jackson
Sarah Palin is writing a fitness book, so the dishonest media had to create a narrative to go with the news. As usual, the narrative isn’t positive. Nope, it’s designed to paint Sarah as some sort of weight obsessed loon. Now I guess dealing with Hollywood “stars” and their crazy insecurities, these hack writers figured they could project their insanity onto Sarah.
We’ve seen the media try this before, so this isn’t a big shocker that they’d try it again. They’ve attempted to paint Sarah, a corruption buster, as corrupt herself [with the help of Barack Obama’s hand-picked Alaska bloggers] and that blew up in their faces. They’ve called her a liar [“death panels” was called lie of the year by the corrupt Politifact bunch] only to have Obama regime employees come and and verify what she said is true!
The media even blood libeled Sarah [and the entire Tea Party] after Congresswoman Giffords was attacked and others murdered only to find out the gunman was actually a left winger who had been stalking Giffords for years, long before anyone knew who Sarah Palin was, or the Tea Party had been formed. The media never apologized.
There are dozens of examples that you already know.
I don’t generally comment on Sarah Palin’s looks. It simply isn’t relevant to who she is, what she’s about, and why we support her. But let’s face it, Sarah Palin is an attractive woman. Forty-eight and the mother of five, Sarah can hold her own with women half her age in the looks department.
She has natural good looks, and takes excellent care of herself. She eats well and lives in an excellent, naturally unspoiled environment.
Sarah is a lifelong athlete. From chopping wood when she was a kid, to playing championship winning basketball in high school, to long distance running, [she ran a marathon faster at 45 than Paul Ryan could in his 20s] she’s always had an athlete’s build. Still, the talking points have been sent out, and the meme is: Sarah is “alarmingly skinny,” “anorexic,” “scary skinny,” and the ever popular “on a starvation diet“!
I hate the gossip rags, but my email alerts have been overflowing with these dishonest articles. Dozens of them!
I hate linking to them, but here’s a few. Us Magazine went with the headline: Skinny Sarah Palin Wears Off-the-Shoulder Shirt in Los Angeles and ran this photo:
Skinny Sarah Palin Wears Off-the-Shoulder Shirt in Los Angeles
Sarah showed off her skinny frame in a revealing off-the-shoulder cropped top and tight, dark jeans. The busy mom carried groceries in high yellow wedges and stylish shades.
She was at K-Mart, if you’re curious. She doesn’t look skinny to me! The article goes on to remind readers that Bristol said Sarah is “way hotter” than Julianne Moore [no argument here] and panned her pathetic attempt to play her mom in the DNC hit piece disguised as a movie: Game Change
Speaking of Moore, the Internet Movie Database ranks Julianne number six in a recent article entitled: Top 10 Female celebrities who are ugly no matter what Hollywood says. Ouch!
Hollywood Life went with Sarah Palin Scary Skinny: Drops 35 Pounds, Says Expert. Yeah, they went and found an “expert” to lend credence to this bullshit!
They also published this side-by-side:
A few problems with the comparison. Obviously the business attire Sarah was wearing as she gave her Vice Presidential acceptance speech doesn’t exactly show off her figure. And let’s not forget that she had just given birth to Trig, child number five, only a few months prior.
Let’s look at Sarah in a more “revealing” outfit from last year. This is from the 2011 Iowa State Fair:
Here’s she’s getting ready to appear on The Sean Hannity Show. Sean was live at the Iowa State Fair:
Don’t know the story behind this photo, be she’s definitely showing off her figure, and if Sarah has been on some sort of “scary crash diet” she’s been on it for over a year, which if true, would have killed her by now!
Other than angles and lighting, I don’t see any difference in Sarah Palin’s absolutely stunning figure, then and now.
TMZ took a different route, showing a photo of Sarah reading the National Enquirer which had a story trashing Bristol for having corrective surgery on her jaw [and running the most unflattering photos possible] as well as buying toilet paper. Buying toilet paper is huge news these days!
The Brits got in on the action as well, running one of their overblown style of articles: ‘I’m writing a fitness book!’ Sarah Palin hits back as the row grows over her shocking new skinny figure. Yeah, that’s the headline!
Controversial Sarah Palin has been forced to hit back after being caught up in a furore over her new scarily skinny figure.
Mrs Palin, 48, debuted her new look as she strolled through California’s Studio City, dressed in an outfit that appeared to have been plundered from one of her young daughter’s wardrobes.
Dressed in tight black jeans, a crop top that looked like it had been stolen off the set of Flashdance, and high wedges, the former vice presidential hopeful looked a million miles away from the campaign trail.
But the look was greeted in less than flattering terms by many – prompting Mrs Palin to claim she is, in fact, now writing a fitness book.
How exactly is Sarah Palin “controversial” anyway? And the only reason she’s being “greeted in less than flattering terms” is because the “journalists” claim it to be so. Absolutely no one, including me, would be talking about Sarah’s looks if these clowns weren’t writing this nonsense!
People that support Sarah Palin support her because of who she is and what she stands for, not her looks, and the haters, well, they just hate. Most have no earthly idea why they hate her [just ask em] they just do.
The Mail published a lot of photo “evidence” and shots the other rags left off, including this one with Sarah doing that thing she does when she’s a tad aggravated:
And this one, where she’s smiling. This actually proves our point, not theirs though!
They also ran this one that I find rather stunning. If they are trying to make Sarah look bad here, they failed miserably, even though they ran this stupid caption: It must be all that hockey: Sarah Palin shows off her skinny arms and legs, with a significantly thinner face.
“Significantly thinner face” really? If this wasn’t ridiculous enough, they also run a photo of Sarah, Todd, and Willow in the audience at Dancing With The Stars looking exactly like she always does!
In case you missed it, Sarah posted a backstage photo of her, Willow, and Bristol Monday night before Bristol and Mark’s dance:
I know our readers are wondering why I am spending so much time on this, especially since I don’t generally comment on Sarah Palin’s looks. It’s the principle of the thing. The media lies when the truth will work better, and does anything and everything to discredit Conservative leaders. They especially attack Sarah Palin. They can’t win on substance, because they always end up looking stupid[er]so they attack her children and attack her looks.
This is nothing new, a couple years back, Sarah was photographed at the Belmont Stakes wearing a revealing blouse, and the word went out that she had had certain “enhancements.” This of course, was just more BS. It’s not like she hadn’t been photographed in a swim suit years before that showed a similar figure, now is it? And who can forget this cute photo of college age Sarah:
The media is filled with degenerate liars, and folks with an agenda that doesn’t include reporting actual news, or advancing Liberty and Freedom. In a society filled with lazy, overweight men, women, and children you’d think we’d want to learn from someone who has managed to maintain a healthy body and great figure throughout her life. Someone who is just as athletic today as she was in high school. I guess that would be too much like right wouldn’t it!
Anyhow, these attacks on Sarah piss me off. They are stupid and idiotic. But, they do show the left has run completely out of ideas. When this is all you got, you’ve lost.
Just because I like this photo, here’s Governor Palin as Commander-in-Chief with her troops. This was taken in 2008 or 2009.

Thanks to you and others we can see she is a serious threat to the establishment~ And if she is not totally, involved in their eyes in the politics of things they go after her on everything else~ Which to me still means she is a threat to them~ If she ever had power they know for sure without doubt they would be locked up for the most part~ They know she has God onher side and they stand God~ To me it is just a bunch mindless junk the half dark brained can come up with~ And not to self loathe Gary I am having not publicly, but similar rejections of sort~ I do nothingbut speak about love of God and Christ of course on youtube and I have been rejected by two preachers on there~ And get this they will let people post hateful messages but not once have posted mine which are the oppoiste~ and I amnot going to lie it does hurt my feelings because it is all have to offer~ I ptruly prefer to talk about nothing else and preachers out of all people to reject it hurts worse~ I never cut people people down but they search me out to destroy me~ I am 41 and look 25 so I am like her in this regard as well~ Man Gary I would love to gain some power because the time for filth ruling the world is over~ We could in a way consider these things a compliment in one sense but it is hard to deal with~ And I just want to spread the word~ I know though something inside me tells me to try harder~ To shout~! I am married and have a beautiful wife and I know Todd cares for her~ God I can’t wait for this to be secured~! I have in memory all these unGodly claims by people and hopefully those memories will become reality as in them ending up in prison~
Sorry for the typos~ Right now I am just really, upset Gary~
No worries! It is definitely aggravating. Now I’ve learned the photos of “skinny Sarah” are actually PHOTOSHOPPED to make her look skinny! Dishonest bastards!
Photo shopped~? That is lame~ I wonder how deep that dark pit really is they reach into themselves to find this stuff~ Talking about not having a life~ Shame on all of them~
Yup, I’ll have a follow up story addressing this. The media is dishonest as the day is long!
Great article!!! Sarah has more integrity and class in her little finger than the lefty sick lame stream media have in their whole body!!! She doesn’t care what they think!!! Love how “grounded” she is!!!
I’ll Buy Her Fitness Book as soon as it’s released. In The mean time, I’ll be terribly pissed on this skinny, anorexic meme!!!
Especially since we’ve learned those photos have been photoshopped!
Gary … we all know since there is NO news about Mrs Palin, it’s their new mandate to create the news
they have no morals / scruples
and their actions show it over and over again
She lives in their heads rent free. No one in history has ever messed with these peoples’ minds like she has. It would be quite entertaining if it wasn’t so evil.
Sorry to burst your bubble, folks. She’s anorexic and possibly bulimic, She has lost a good 30 pounds she didn’t need to (she was a healthy weight 4 years ago).
If you do care about this person, urge her to get back to a normal weight. Her weight loss is unhealthy and has aged her. And no amount of plastic surgery (and she has had plenty) will fix that. Only maintaining a healthy weight and staying out of the sun will help.
Trust me on this. I was anorexic as a teen and in my 30s.
You may have had eating problems as a child, hope you beat them, but you shouldn’t try to project that onto others.
Governor Palin has an extensive workout routine that she’s followed for decades. She’s the same size she’s been since she was a teen, excluding the times she was beautifully as big as a house when pregnant. [I’ve seen the pictures]
And NO, the Governor hadn’t had ANY plastic surgery. Where do you loons come up with this stupidity?
You people fall for the dishonest media narratives every time, even when evidence to the contrary is right in front of you! It would be hilarious if not so pathetic.
People with eating disorders and who are “sickly” don’t have the beautiful and well defined muscle tone Sarah has.
Been following Governor Palin and her career from almost the day she took office. I know what I’m talking about.
You need to get a grip on reality, then stop believing everything you read in the dishonest media.
Whoever thinks those images have been Photoshopped are idiots! I have been teaching and using Photoshop since the day in came out in the market in the late 80s. I have been a professional graphic designer for 30+ years. They are NOT Photoshopped!
Graphics experts disagree. Some say yes, some say no.
For What it’s worth: Our West Coast Editor, a graphics artist and news service veteran, says no.
That said, the notion that Palin has become “alarmingly skinny” is the most ridiculous nonsense ever spewed by liberals, and that’s saying something. Palin has great muscle tone, and is incredibly strong. One who is on some sort of “starvation diet” or other silliness these loons claim, doesn’t have good muscle tone, and can’t run 5 miles day.
Face it, liberals are just jealous that a 48 year old woman with 5 kids and 2 grandkids looks this good.
The comparison photo set (above) is “photoshopped” or “windows paintered” crudely, by altering the height vs width, particularly of the right side picture. One only needs to see that photo next to the rear right side view shown in the Daily Beast article to be certain of this.
Palin is at or near the medically ideal body weight. I agree that she should be admired, not pilloried for her active, outdoor lifestyle, and efforts to keep physically fit.
Notice that even chunky conservatives maintain a better distribution of body fat and retain better overall fitness and mobility than their leftie counterparts. People-watch and compare for yourself! No wonder they envy us. 😀
Yup, one of our readers sent me a tweet saying the photo looked “stretched”. There are so many tricks nowadays.
All I know is I would KILL to be in the great physical shape Sarah Palin is in. She has almost zero body fat.
It’s funny, the haters on the left always crow about “eating organic” as the only healthy lifestyle. No one eats more “organic” than the Palins! All of their protein comes from “free range” sources. They hunt for all of their meat, and of course run a commercial fishing operation. The only time she’s “in danger” is on the road eating at restaurants and fast food joints!
Liberalism is a mental disorder, and they all prove this daily!

damn, she looks alarmingly skinny
No, she looks like she always has. Fit and trim. Nice try though.
