Comments on: Those Palin photos… http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/10/14/those-palin-photos/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Robina http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/10/14/those-palin-photos/comment-page-1/#comment-341495 Sun, 16 Nov 2008 11:19:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/10/14/those-palin-photos/#comment-341495 I see you choose to print only those hypocritical views that youy paper probably expouses. Taking a photo up a women’s legs is always SEXIST unless the ‘said’ person is a Democrat. This is very unpleasant.

In the Middle East and in many Muslim homes this is the image we get of the WEST. HYPOCRITICAL. Palin should wear a full cloak and cover herself (like Muslim women)in a country that women are held in full REGARD and EQUALITY.

If she didn’t have half-way decent looks, she wouldn’t have a leg to stand on as a viable candidate. What comes out of her mouth is pure nonsense.

These pictures represent well the shallowness of her candidacy and the only thing she has to offer……comic and sexist relief.

The photographer turned junk shots into moneymakers. The look of admiration is classic and captivating, I wonder who he will vote for? This kind of coverage makes me wonder if he put the camera on the stage and took a picture looking under her skirt?

I’m sure she is having a laugh at it, she has already achieved a huge success – talk about political correctness run wild – is it no longer possible for people to laugh at themselves?

It’s an interesting angle as well as an interesting study of the audience no matter who the legs belong to or whether they’re clad in trousers or tights.

Congratulations to the photographer for finding a new angle, kinda like looking up from the gutter, from where so many citizens will probably be viewing the world given the horrendous mess our leaders have made of the 21st century so far. And yes, from here they do look like great legs. Well done that photographer and the editor. Don’t let the short-sighted re-activists stop you.

Give us a break. This is fun. Its a good foto. It shows strong and healthy leg.

Lighten up and see the good things in this foto. Some people just want to be upset at something; maybe because the campaign is not going well, maybe.

Palin displayed her legs and photographer took a shot. Learn something from Tina Turner. Take this as a compliment.

Let’s get over this whining and go back to discussing the important issues of this campaign.
