Sarah Palin Denies Teacher-Hating Eye-Roll, Tells “Left-Stream Media” to Stay Classy


A video has been circulating today in which a local woman with an enormous Worst Governor Ever sign confronts Sarah Palin at the high-security filming of her Discovery Channel show in Homer, Alaska, about, basically, selling out. As you might expect, the conversation the clip captures is utter inanity. The best thing about it is when Palin is told her detractor, Kathleen Gustafson, is a teacher and gives what seems to be a pretty obnoxious eye-roll. Meaning she hates teachers, right, or at least looks down on them? Watch and decide.

This evening, Palin fought back on Facebook with the following, charging the Left-Stream Media with a spin op and saying it wasn’t an eye roll at all, and in fact she was only moving her eyebrows:

The LSM has now decided to use this brief encounter for another one of their spin operations. They claim I – wait for it – “appear to roll my eyes” when the lady tells me she’s a teacher. Yes, it’s come to this: the media is now trying to turn my eyebrow movements into story lines. (Maybe that’s why Botox is all the rage – if you can’t move your eyebrows, your “eye rolling” can’t be misinterpreted!) If they had checked their facts first, they would have known that I come from a family of teachers; my grandparents were teachers, my father was a teacher, my brother is a teacher, my sister works in Special Needs classrooms, my aunt is a school nurse, my mom worked as a school secretary for much of her professional life, we all volunteer in classrooms, etc., etc., etc. Given that family history, how likely is it that I would “roll my eyes” at someone telling me that they too work in that honorable profession? Stay classy, LSM.

Wait, so does that mean she’s pro- or anti-Botox?
