Change Liberals Can’t Believe In: Lefties Mad That Palin BabyDaddy Took a Shower; Double Standard on Obama Kid

By Debbie Schlussel
Liberals at the Huffington Post are apoplectic that Bristol Palin BabyDaddy Levi Johnston actually took a shower and shaved. Horror of horrors. And he took the shower after a hockey game several months ago. We can’t have that. He should have stayed sweaty, smelly, and gross for months. Right?
The Huff-and-Puffingtons even did a before and after. And whaddya know–it’s a conspiracy of makeovers when a guy showers and shaves between participating in a sporting event a long time ago and a Republican convention this week? How dare he waste the water and razors. Talk about petty and small.
Here’s the Huffington Post Before/After Comparison of a Candidate’s Soon-to-be-Relative:

Levi Johnston’s non-“Makeover”: Shower and a Shave

Here’s the Debbie Schlussel Before/After Comparison of a Candidate’s Relative:

Malia Obama’s Makeover: Hiding the Cornrows

And, as reader Abraham points out, the liberals and media don’t seem to be bothered by a far different makeover conducted on Barack Hussein Obama’s oldest daughter, 10-year-old Malia, who had cornrows before her Democratic National Convention appearance, and suddenly didn’t. Voila–no cornrows. Was this some sort of attempt to make the Obama kids more palatable to White people? Why, the Obama’s would never do that, would they?
Um, if you’re gonna go to such a ridiculous issue–the looks of a relative of a Presidential or VP candidate–and you’re gonna look at makeovers, here’s a tip:
If you are going to ignore the new, non-cornrows hairstyle, don’t harp on a guy because he engages in basic male sanitary hygiene.
Remember, Arianna Huffington, you and your crew “went there” first. Talk about double standards.

Good comparison.
But then, most liberals are either slovenly themselves, or admire slovenly people, so I can see why they think it is unauthentic to be clean. The fact that the Hiffington Post is making this attack also tells me something else; I’ve noticed today that the attacks against Palin are much weaker than yesterday, and there’s also a lot of defensiveness on the leftin reaction to some of the things she said. A long way from yesterday, but of course a long way to go, both in terms of vote totals, and political content. But there has been a very widespread feeling of both hostility and impotence against the elites for a long time, and Palin seems to be the first major politician who can effectively tap into it, for at least quite a while. If this sets a dynamic going, who knows what will happen?

Since Oblahblah felt it necessary to undergo plastic surgery to reduce the width of his nose way back when, cornrows would clearly be toast.
BO does have family. He lives in a slum outside Nairobi.

The leftist media are showing themselves to be the craven, soul-less, sociopathic vermin they truly are.

I wonder if the “legitimate” writers that publish on Huffington Post are the least bit concerned about their work being compromised being linked to such a vile propaganda site.
For instance: Nora Ephron, who I’ve loathed way before she hitched herself Arianna Huffington’s train wreck. The thing is, Ephron was quite an acclaimed author and screenwriter in her own right, before Huffington Post. —But apparently Ephron just wasn’t good enough of a writer to go out in the big bad world, and do her own blog.
Jane Smiley, Nora Ephron……always loathesome, but both had a modicum of success without Huffington’s help. Now their careers are completely compromised and in the toilet after tying themselves to Huffington’s apron strings.
Hope it was worth it !

Wow, the difference is obvious. Corn rows are a blacker hair style. The straight hair is the whiter hair style. B.O.’s daughters can thank mommies college paper hating on whitey and daddies freindship with buddy rev. wright for this change. Too bad the Obama girls are going to have to use the hot steel combs every time they go in front of a t.v. camera. I understand it is a time consuming affair if not a painful one. Those things have to get heated up in an oven to get them hot enough to straighten hair. Women burn their heads all the time doing it.

Of course the kid is going to clean up to be seen on a national stage,and as for his High School hockey pic,who gets all prettied up for that? It’s a sport where we all embrace the rough and tumble image…Bob Probert #24 yeah…that was the ticket!

Hiding the cornrows? How is that? The media has 50-dozen pictures of the Obama girls in their cornrows, so nothing is being hidden. The family even did an interview while the girls were in their cornrows, so I think people are reading too much into this. As someone who grew up with two sisters, I can that the reason her hair was in cornrows is simple. If you’re on the road and traveling with kids (such as a political campaign), cornrows are a lot easier and more time-efficient to manage than constantly having to prim and style a young Black girl’s hair. My mother put my sister in cornrows every time we took a long trip so she wouldn’t have to worry about them messing up their hair or fussing over it. But the cornrows always had to come out and the straight perm styled in when we got to our destination or attended a gathering such as a church. My mother would never allow my sisters to wear cornrows at any formal gathering. Cornrows were just for home, doing chores, and long trips.
Samurai, please don’t mention those hot steel combs in front of my sisters…..they have very unpleasant memories of those things growing up!! (and so do I!….the whole house smelled like styling oil and burnt hair!). However, I think today there are more efficient (and safer) methods that Black women use to perm (straighten) their hair.

when Michelle O was out of sight for a while wasn’t it reported she was being “reinvented”
and her “softer” side will be more prominent??also Axlerod has a history of “makin-over” he asked JIM TERMAN a public relations firm to help with “trinity church” in April of this yearand this church gave Wright a million $$$ home??Terman did pro-bono job for Wright then Axlerod did a makeover for Univ. of Chicago hospital when citizens of Chicago were upset with hospital???
by the way their code for black and poor was “urban”and lets not forget EXELON a company who Obama has ties to because Axlerod is theoir public strategist soon I see them making over Biden….
