Sarah Palin Bikini Photos Are Fake
The Improper ^ | 8 Sep 08 | Samantha Chang

Posted on 09/08/2008 2:57:45 PM PDT by SkyPilot

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has kicked up a media firestorm since John McCain announced she would be his vice presidential running mate.

In the two weeks since the announcement, Palin, 44, has been attacked for being a bad mom, an inexperienced bimbo and a vapid ex-beauty contestant.

Many people have also been frantically searching the Internet for sexy photos of Sarah Palin, and apparently hit pay dirt when saucy photos of Palin toting a rifle wearing a star-spangled bikini were uncovered. However, those photos--like the rumors that Palin's son Trig is actually her grandson--are fake.

Whether you agree with Palin's politics or not (personally, I don't), attacking her teenage daughter and mothering skills and manufacturing sexist images in order to undermine her credibility is a transparent attack on her gender. Sadly, we as a country just can't move past our prejudices. On the other hand, is this any worse than the New Yorker magazine cover which featured Barack Obama and his wife Michelle as gun-toting Muslim terrorists? Here's a novel idea: Let's just stick to the issues.

Talk radio hosts from all over have been discussing how they have been e-mailed the faked photoshopped "picture" of Gov. Palin in a red white and blue bikini carrying a "sniper assault gun (sic)."

In case anyone here at FR is being sent the e-mailed fake photos, or anything else, here is proof it is false.

Oh....and it is false that she tried to ban books in the library of her town too. Michael Medved even discussed the Snopes link to that.

Oh....and that photo being circulated isn't her dressed like a hooker either...

The abortionist-feminist-homosexual-hate America-coward- drug users are going to have to find a new attack vein.

I keep hearing the gun referred to as an AK-47. I’m no gun expert, but the AK has a distinctive look, and that ain’t it.

I could send the media a photoshopped pic of her with a KKK outfit on and they would run with it they are so rediculous. It just shows how low these morons have sunk.

looks like a BB/pellet gun to me. And if Sarah’s doing all that running, I’m sure her bod is more toned than that one...

It turns out that the real photo is of Marina Oswald, wife of Lee Harvey Oswald (seen in the background drinking domestic beer), near their backyard pool, two weeks prior to the assassination of JFK.

Hours after the photo’s publication, 30,000 self-described experts began talking of “incontrovertible proof” of Oswald’s innocence.

“I keep hearing the gun referred to as an AK-47. I’m no gun expert, but the AK has a distinctive look, and that ain’t it.”

It looks like a .22 pump rifle to me. If it really was Sarah she might be able to feed one sled dog with it.

Yuck. Why is everyone so exercised over a silly piece of photo shopping. That little girl in the original pic is heavy of thigh and belly, as well as being a little topheavy. In a beauty contest, she'd be given the Miss Marshmallow award. She is NOT Sarah Palin!

It's a Beeman BB gun. $39.99 at your local Wal-Mart.

YES. Cartoons are never mistaken for being real. This was a deliberate attempt to make people believe it was real. If the Palin photo had been a drawing, it would be crude humor, not character-assassination.

What? You expect the MSM and leftie sites to know the difference between an AK-47 and a BB gun ;-)

The image from which Sarah palin's head was photoshopped:

The image was flipped horizontally.

Compare the details:

Of course that picture is fake. Were it real then Sarah would have her shooting glasses on and the rifle would be at least a 30.06 and not a BB or pellet rifle. She’d also look a damn sight better in a bikini than whoever that is in the original pic.

It's really a ridiculous attempt to make Sarah look like a bimbo. I'm amazed that anyone was taken in by it.

Perhaps a pic of an AK and a BB gun, side by side, will help the marxists at DU discover the difference...;)

My mistake - the other FR is correct - I think it is a Crossman.

Geez, anybody could tell that pic was faked, as the original girl's body is soft, and obviously hadn't finished any marathons.

Add a shotgun and really confuse them. Particularly the media, who often identify shotguns as rifles.

I know that you were quoting another poster but whoever that is is holding a hunting rifle, not a sniper rifle and not an assault weapon.
The maggots on the left don't miss a chance to lie when it comes to firearms.
Even the socialists describe an assault weapon as a semiautomatic. This rifle is clearly a bold action so it doesn't even fit their fantasies.

That’s a dreaded assualt Crossman BB gun.

AND it's black AND it has a scope so it's also a dreaded assault Crossman SNIPER BB gun.

Boy, they are out of touch!

Same as the uber-lib guy I knew in law school, he of the Oberlin undergrad degree, who thought that the Ronbo poster (Reagan's head on Stallone's body, with appropriate quotes) would make me upset. You should've seen the look on his face when I said, "Hey, where'd you get THAT? I've just gotta have it!" This guy deflated from Bozo the Clown on uppers to...Michelle Obama thinking about Hillary.

Indeed, they simply do not understand.

Respectfully, I'm not sure the name-pun “Barracuda,” while fun and indicative of Sarah's tenacity, is how she should be be singularly defined.

Nor would her finger be inside the trigger guard.

That reminds me of a Dennis Miller comment when he still had his HBO show. When John Walker Lindh was captured in Afghanistan, Miller stated he was less concerned with Lindh and more worried about "Wolf Boy" in the background.

LOL! That is what I thought.

Plus, andy rifle with a scope is considered a "Sniper Rifle", and any gun that the MSM deems ugly is an "Assult Rifle."

In the Fox News/Greta Van Susterin shoe on Palin, a picture is shown of her in college in which she is wearing a T-shirt that says "I may be broke, but I'm NOT flat-busted"............very true.

I’m no gun expert, but the AK has a distinctive look, and that ain’t it.

Reminds me of Gunnery Sgt. Tom Highway in "Heartbreak Ridge," as he finished live-firing an AK not so far over the heads of his Marines:

"This is the AK-47 assault rifle, the preferred weapon of your enemy; and it makes a distinctive sound when fired at you, so remember it."

I got sent the bikini photo over the weekend, plus the one where she’s in a tight, short skirt, and let the person that sent it to me know they are both fakes. I’m not expert on photoshop, but they did a great job on that bikini one IMO.

just look at the two photos and you can easily tell that they cut her face out of her official photo and put that on someone body / hair. the creases in the corners of her mouth, the lighting on her cheeks, chin, and lips, even the shadow of her bangs that falls on her forehead (just below the “G” in “VOGUE”)...
