More evidence that the media is trying to sabotage Sarah Palin

The media still hasn't gotten the message that Sarah Palin would rather be seen and not heard.

On Tuesday, they got all hissy when Palin told them that no print or wire service reporters would be allowed to watch her meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Only photographers and videographers. And only for a few seconds.

So the media threatened not to run video footage of her meeting, which would mean that her foreign policy experience would still be limited to being able to see Russia from her house.

But they worked out a deal where reporters were able to enter the room for a few seconds in which they craned to hear the discussion.

After 29 seconds observing the meeting, CNN and other photographers covering the meeting were escorted out of the room.

Later, McCain-Palin press representatives chalked up the restrictions to a “mix-up, a miscommunication among staff.” The full pool — a print and wires reporter, along with a television producer — was then allowed in to observe Palin’s meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe for 15-20 seconds.

Palin then announced her new campaign slogan: Speak softly and carry lipstick.

Oh my God, you are disgusting. Sarah Palin wants to be seen and not heard? You are either making a compelling farce about the public's fascinating with Sarah Palin or you are seriously the most sexist man I have met in a long time. And you aren't even hiding it. Speak softly and carry lipstick? Do you make your wife diet? I bet you do. You seriously make me sick. Your blog is enough to have me actually consider Obama.

My wife sometimes tells me I'm sexy but there are more sexy men than me.
