Just one image as a teaser. These are current model quality photos (she could easily be a model for REI, LLBean, Northface, etc) that show how attractive she is even in outdoor relaxed settings.

p.s. Don’t post more here; the Daily Beast is a Newsweak company and we can only post an excerpt. Probably only one photo is allowed.

grey_whiskers captioned her in this photo as “Our Lady of the Tundra.” Though current the photo is of a relaxed, seemingly much younger woman.

..........some idiot just bought Newsweek for one dollar...............I’ll buy it back from him for two bucks, he can then double his profits, and I will donate all pics to FR.......then close the magazine down forever.............there, problem solved!

If you haven’t looked at the 8 pics on the Daily Beast, I recommend you do. Wow! One problem newsweek has is that it is about impossible to take a bad picture of Sarah............as much as I know they try to.............

If the MSM, especially a very liberal part of the MSM, is promoting a Republican, doesn't this mean they think that person would be easy for Obama to defeat? Don't they attack the Republicans they are afraid of? Isn't this what has been posted over and over and over again whenever the slightest of positive comments are made about Bachmann and other candidates or when any slight is made about Palin? Are things different now? Has something changed? Is positive press from the liberal MSM now a good thing for a Republican?

Since Newsweek is no longer part of the Washington Post news group, maybe they are trying to become more relevant.

Slim chance, I know, but just saying...

“You know, I rarely use the term ‘bipartisanship,’ ” she said. “I use the term ‘independent’...Seventy-three percent of Alaskans aren’t registered Republican or Democrat, they’re independent. Todd’s not a registered Republican. Most of the people I know, they’re independent people saying, ‘Just use common sense.’ ”

Ever wonder why the Republican establishment doesn’t like her? Now you know.

Republican Party hierarchy is filling their britches at the thought of her running for President.

Just imagine the moaning and gnashing of teeth at Newsweak when the realize the sales of this copy probably end up at 4-5 times their normal rate.

The last time I bought a copy of that rag was when they devoted the whole issue to “How George W Bush Won”. I look forward to buying a similar issue in November of 2012.

4, 6, 8. They could have picked a better cover picture IMHO, but it would ruin their reputation of being biased.

Are you saying the Washington Post is not Liberal? Isn't it true that a liberal publication publishing something positive about a Republican can only mean one thing, that they think that person will lose if they run against Obama? I've read that continuously on FR whenever there is a positive story in the liberal MSM about McCain, Romney, Bachmann, et al. It would seem that the liberal press really isn't afraid of Palin after all. Could this be correct?

Okay, okay. I’m convinced now. She’s really not running.
These photos are wonderful and she is very beautiful, but these poses appear to be designed for commercial material and not presidential hopes. I remember Putin in the outdoor photo shoot. Where did that go over well except for jokes? When “they” are after you anyway for questionable brains, why deliver proof and sell calendars shots?

Hmmm... I see what you're saying. I could have worded my comment better.

Since Newsweek is no longer part of the Washington Post news group, maybe they are Newsweek is trying to become more relevant.

And, yes, I worry about the Washington Post and other liberal/leftwing publications issuing faint praise. But remember, praise, such as it might be, is always "balanced" by a hit piece somewhere else in the publication. Count on it. A leopard's spots may fade when shedding its coat, but they never disappear.

Newsweek is nearly bankrupt (financially, if not morally) and they know Sarah sells. That’s why they’re giving her publicity.

I thought the cover photo looked a little awkward more than “relaxed” and it almost appeared as if they enhanced her bust the way Rolling Stone enhanced Al Gore’s “package” back in 2000. Again, to sell magazines, not so much to promote the candidacy.

Okay, you're right.

Here's a very presidential picture of Perry posing with a puppy.

...just for you.

LOL!

"One problem newsweek has is that it is about impossible to take a bad picture of Sarah"

It is certainly a fact that any picture of her shows a person comfortable and confident with who she is.A vast contrast to the transparent shallow,establishment types which are foisted upon us.

I hope she does run and look forward to the immense popcorn fest that will ensue as all the beltway elitists run in circles devising plans and lies to destroy her.

When that happens,if the silent masses become loud and come to her defense,then maybe there will be some real hope and change.

You’re right to be skeptical. Sarah should have been also. Of the 8 pictures posted, not one was in a suit, at a rally, in a meeting. They were all glamor shots and completely alone. Why do you suppose they did that?

When will Republicans realize that they are being interviewed and photographed by DEMOCRATS?

Indeed, it may well be that the liberal MSM is promoting Palin because its stupid enough to think Obama couldn't lose to her.

Something along the lines of being hoist on their own petard!

Perry has been pretending a run for a lot less time than the calendar girl, and if he pretends anywhere near as long as she, I’ll be looking elsewhere from him too. It seems unfair to the others who are doing the heavy lifting, and it sets the bench sitters up, legitimately, for being called “spoilers”. Rick has his team together and looks serious. Money and endorsements count and they’re after it.
Sarah isn’t.

The nature of the PDSer

In a time not so very long ago, a man of logic, reason and rationality, upset by the injustice of the mindless and their baseless attacks upon his candidate of choice, did undertake a quest to discover the nature of the PDS’er.

And so did the man travel to the far corners of the Earth, for in his travels he could find no wisdom, nor wise man, to satisfactorily explain the root cause of Palin Derangement Syndrome, nor it’s effect on those so smitten. It was not until a chance encounter with a Zen Master high atop a remote mountain in Tibet that our hero found his answer.

“To discover the nature of the PDS’er,” said the Zen Master, One must understand the logic of why the sky is yellow.”

Confused by the sage words of the old wise man, our hero listened intently as the knowledge of the ages sprung forth from his old and weathered lips...

“To discover the nature of the PDS’er, One must understand the fact that dogs meow and cats bark at passing cars.”

“To discover the nature of the PDS’er, One must understand the reason why the sun shines brightly in the night sky.”

For what seemed like hours the Zen Master spoke thusly until finally our hero looked upon him and said “Master, dogs do not meow, nor cats bark. The sky is not yellow but blue and the sun shines in it by day, not by night. To spout such nonsense is neither logical, nor rational, nor factual. In fact, you’d have to be nuts to believe any of that!”

And so did our hero gain enlightenment into the nature of the PDS’er.

maybe, but given the context, i think the better interpretation is 1) newsweek wants to make some money so put SP on the cover and do a reasonable interview for a lefty mag ( i might just buy this, havent bought newsweek in 40 years otherwise)
2) hey SP just might be nominee or gasp, pres, maybe we want our guy to be one of the few she will talk to
3) they know Obozo is a colossal failure and are trying to shake him up by seeming to promote whom “we” all know is a lightweight

True. And Hillary never even made it to the White House.

Sarah does good Bettie Page. And she mentioned that she was going to run an extremely unconventional campaign.

This is the kind of thing that’s unconventional.

Best,

Chris
