The Star Trib saw fit to print an article yesterday about the cost of Sarah Palin's makeup artist on the campaign trail.
WHO CARES?? Is this really news? What a piece of garbage newspaper- barely fit to line a hamster's cage. It's a joke. There was a funeral this week for a Minneapolis man who blew up 29 people in another country- and they print this fluff piece on the incident in the South Metro Section of the paper. You have to search for it, while the Palin piece is the #2 item under "Politically Connected" on the home page. I wonder what page of the print edition it was on.
I'll have to point out that Hillary Clinton's shellac for 18 months of the campaign trail surely cost a pretty penny- that she also had paid professionals applying her makeup and styling her hair on the road. And FYI- the men use professionals too. But would a MSM reporter ever take the time to pick up the phone, call the Clinton campaign and ask what her final tab was for purposes of comparison in a news story? No way.
This is getting old. The editors of these papers sitting around the news room "Well, here are the stories we have today....Recession looming, market down, still no energy policy, still no immigration reform...nah, let's go with the Palin makeup story."
The election is over- your guy won. You barely asked any substantive questions of Barack Obama- neither of his background nor his proposed policies. You effectively destroyed Sarah Palin's reputation. Mission accomplished.
Now go report some damn news.
