Pony Pal™ Mr. Dork, Esq., has scanned the pertinent area of the cover for us to enjoy. You'll have to click on the picture to see the high-res version for maximum impact:

It's not really that bad, but still... LOL.

Aw, hey. Some of us have the same problem. I go to the Indian ladies at the threading salon on Venice Blvd. and they take care of my post-menopausal mustache.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Well, sure, but you'd make sure to get that done right before having a headshot taken, right?

FranIAm said...

Perhaps Newsweek gave the airbrusherer/photoshopper the day off for a reason?

It only reinforces the lie that she's just one of the common middle US-American hockey moms, who have a valiant fight against lip hair.

But also think: such hair helps to keep her warm in Alaska.

I'd love to laugh at this one, but I have to wax the hair above my upper lip, and a couple of chin pubes as well.

Too many pain flashbacks, and I dream of the day more women will feel free to shave less and wax never, even before a photo shoot. That would be soo...mavericky.

Still, plenty of material to laugh at before entering soup-catcher territory.

They weren't too kind leaving that area under her eye unretouched, too.

Those are the novelty earrings she wore when she went to the UN and met REAL LIVE world leaders!

I can't believe I'm hammering on last month's joke still, but isn't that pitbull fur?

OT - but have you noticed that the GOOPERS have her all dressed up in virginal white to deliver her nasty-grams this week? And it's after Labor Day? Sheesh.

dguzman said...

God, she's so scary close-up.

rptrcub said...

Virginal white could also stand for KKK white, considering her supporters who shout "kill him" at rallies.

Where did she get those earrings???? At the truck stop on border of Alaska and Russia???
OMG.....
novelity earrings on the possible (although seriously longshot) VP???
What is next a "I'm with the old guy running for President" tee-shirt?
a "I'm the governor of Alaska and all I got is this tee-shirt?"
I bet she picked them up with a pecan log....
good jesus....

Shelly Amber said...

BTW, Fox is all over this right now.....saying it is just unbelievable she wasn't airbrushed.
Wonder what they would say if she had been airbrushed....???
Again, Palin is just "putting it out there for the American people"
Hey, hunting moose does NOT require upperlip waxing, or even bleaching obviously...

Go find an Indian beauty salon, anonymous. They use a twisted thread. It take a few minutes and costs about $12. No wax!

Hirsute hockey mom.

I hate her with a passion, but her skin looks good for a woman who is almost 50 & a tanner. I also think it is a hoot they didn't de-fuzz her evil face.

Sara in MN said...

Supposedly, the wing-nuts love her because she's REAL. So, what's the problem over at FOX News? Upset because the Caribou Barbie mask has slipped?

DanInMn said...

Ewwww!

Great. Now I have to go through the rest of the day with that image in my head. Thanks a lot.

Sar Appalling; Mavericky AND Testosterony!

And what the hell? Did she chip that tooth showing off at the bar by popping the tops off long neck Buds without a bottle opener?

Shelly Amber said...
