Sarah Palin Is Not Flat Busted

Sarah Palin Is Not Flat Busted

The Associated Press has released this undated photo showing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in her dorm room at the University of Idaho.

Her T-shirt reads: “I may be broke but I’m not flat busted.”

Another favorite of Palin, according to classmates, was a t-shirt that said “FCK: The only thing missing is ‘U.’ ”

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, announced Palin as his vice presidential running mate last Friday.

This photo was provided to the AP by the Heath family. (Sarah‘s parents are Chuck and Sally Heath.)

    what a babe! :)

    but i’m still gonna vote for obama for prez.

  • terissa

    Oh heck she was young and it’s only a shirt leave her alone. It beats smoking pot and taking drugs like Obama.

  • bottom line

    We had 8 years of executive experience when Bush was elected the presidential nominee from being the Governor of Texas, and look what that has gotten us. Yet you dang republicans are ready to put two more so called “executive experienced dummies” (Palin executive experience of running a small town (2 people 3 grizzly bears) and less than two years governor and McCain I don’t know much about the economy fool) back in the office??? Hell Smokey the freaking Bear has better common sense then you guys. No the problem isn’t about experience or the lack thereof for you guys and you just need to admit it that any one will do as long as it isn’t that “black man” in the office. That is what got you republicans running scared, and your panties all in a wade. It’s not about experience or anything else that’s a coverup it’s about keeping the White House, well you know just that.

    Can people not read the article? The photo was provided to the AP by ‘The Heath Family”. The author added the bit about the parent’s names. Doesn’t anyone have any relatives besides their parents that would dig up a picture like this if they ran for major office? (The snarky uncle, the jealous cousin.)

    To those that bring up her short resume. At least the republican short resume is at the BOTTTOM of the ticket, not the top.

  • Connie

    Really, this is the best the Republicans can do. This is a big joke. I have had enough of this garbage family. I feel like so much more has been covered up.

  • Vshizzle

    It is so wonderful how the smears against a woman are so acceptable….It is disgusting the way you people tear this woman apart…Like Obama said himself: “Leave her family alone…” It is really gross you are doing to her Jared.

  • milal

    McCain should have picked Condi Rice, Romney, or Huckabee. Palin is a JOKE. She is the female version of Little Bush. Obama/Biden 2008. Yes we can! Yes we can!

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    Never mind her resume – McCain could have chosen someone with some class and decency . What a joke!

  • heather

    how are photos taken 20 years ago relevant to this election in any way? you liberals will go to any lengths to win an election. how do you sleep at night? nice try…

  • uhhhhh

    the photo is relevant because of her public policy making in terms of sex education, people!

    She only wants to teach kids about abstinence.

    Yet she wore f-ck tshirts herself as a teen, got pregnant and had a shotgun wedding, and now her daughter is having one too(poor thing, why does she have to marry this idiot guy who impregnated her?)

    Hmmm…maybe if her daughter AND her had gotten some decent sex ed in school, they would have learned how to not get knocked up before they reached the age of 19

  • molly

    this is so funny. She’s so uptight about abstinence as a politician and yet she was wearing fck shirts and advertising her boobs publicly in college.

    Pot. Kettle. Black.

  • skeptic

    I’m amazed that it doesn’t bother Republicans that their nominee for President did not vet his vice presidential choice. He has been the nominee for months and he could have and would have discovered everything about the family and we would be spared this saga. It is sad that McCain wanted to pick Lieberman or Ridge, but his party wouldn’t go for it, so McCain picked Palin to satisfy the most extreme elements of his party. That says two things about McCain: 1) he doesn’t have stones to stand up to his party; and 2) he lacks the judgment to be President. People, we are engaged in two wars and the Republican VP candidate’s position on Iraq is that it’s God’s plan. WTF! If that doesn’t strike fear into your heart, then I don’t know what will. Don’t our men and women fighting for their country deserve a President and Vice President who are knowledgeable about the issues they confront? Or is party identification more important?

  • Common Sense

    Okay, have any of you not worn stupid shirts when you were young? Did you really wait until you were married to have sex? Please. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” I think Christ said it best.

  • Tami

    I’ve been a life long democrat…but this woman is exactly what we need in the White house!! I’m voting McCain/Palin!!! OMG Obama is a Muslim whether he’ll admit it…I want American!!! Going against my party is tough…swallowing Obama is impossible!

  • molly

    common sense:

    I”m not judging her morally. I’m judging her words and actions against her public policies.

    Two different situations.

    It’s very ironic this woman is so anti-sex ed when she was clearly sexually active as a teen herself. Her situation makes a case FOR sex education.

    Her political alignment is extreme right wing when it comes to public policy regarding sex ed and abortion(doesn’t even think abortion should be a possibility for cases of rape).

    THAT matters. Her political stances matter in context to how her actions have been. Her political stances regarding teenagers and sex are so to the right….and yet, we see? She was any normal, sex minded college teen herself. It’s hypocritical.

    THAT matters.

  • lana

    translation for the tshirt:

    “Do as I say, kids. Not as I do—or did as a horny teenager myself.”

  • eddie jones

    More Leftist Propaganda, good job jared, I hope all your tax filings are in order, let’s hope the republicans handle these attacks just like the democrats do, going after your pocket book.

  • anonymous

    How does anyone know she was sexually active as a teen? Cause she wore a silly, racy T shirt? Not that I think there’s anything wrong with it.

    This whole thing is ridiculous. She just seems like a typical college student. She also was older when she got married. It was a few years after college.

    I’d like to know how many here have the accomplishments she has? I don’t share many of her politics or social views but I won’t deny that she is an amazing woman.

  • lana

    she was sexually active as a teen cause she had her first child as a teen–8 months after eloping with her husband.

    Good for them for making the marriage work-but she’s hardly a spokesperson for “just say no” to sex as a teenager.

  • lana

    ps-she does seem like a normal college student. That’s the point.

    Her public policies regarding sexuality however are NOT reflecting that fact. They are on the far right, where abstinence is the only option to present to teenagers. That clearly isn’t what happened for both mother and daughter here.

    I don’t judge them personally. Good for them for having the kid. But she’s the last person I want to hear about preaching about abstinence only programs.

  • karen

    she wasn’t a teen, but she did have a shotgun wedding.

    The shirt isn’t a big deal for her personal life.

    It matters in how to judge how much her actual life aligns with her political stances though.

    I feel bad for her daughter–she’s only 17 and being subjected to so much awful press.

    But Sarah Palin’s open to scrutiny. This isn’t the end of the world, but it does compromise her moral stances in the political realm.

  • Too sad

    Wow her own family must be voting for Obama. Her in laws are.

  • Danielle

    dude, stop posting bad shit about mccain and palin. none of this shit has anything to do with her being the VP of the USA. ugh, it’s getting so fucking annoying.

  • Common Sense

    Molly, not everyone lives up to their own standards. And just because she wants that for the country doesn’t mean that she’s been able to live up to it herself. Honestly, I think it’s great that she can relate to average people. Do you really think that Obama or most of these rich politicians can relate to any of us? She’s lived as just a regular soccer mom, and that’s something I think is great.

  • molly

    It’s not her own standards i have a problem with–live her standards away.

    Her ability to project her public policy standards on ME and others politically is where I have a problem.

    How is she relating to average people, if her views on abortion don’t even square with conservative evangelical leanings–where most agree that abortion should be an option for those who have been raped?

    HOw many people honestly agree that abortion shouldn’t be an option for rape victims, including those underaged?

    How is arguing that abstinence programs are the only options that should be taught in schools—when her own life experiences don’t reflect any sort of success rate with the “just say no” concept herself? If it didn’t work for her, why is she attempting to instill those standards on others?

    Just because she’s some mom doesn’t mean she’s relatable at all if her public policies hold others to a higher standard than she holds herself!

  • mike

    So what, its a t-shirt. 20 years ago. It wasn’t that long ago that Obaloney was still wearing a muslim diaper on his head.

  • remember da truth

    If this were a man, there wouldn’t be this kind of thread up here.


    I was going to vote for Hilary but then Obama kicked her out of the running. Then I decided I’ll vote for Obama, even though I think his face looks weird and something about him repulses me a little. But now…now the idea of having this hot bitch as vice-president has warmed me up to the notion of McCain as President.

    President Obamalama? President McCain? Yeah, I know which one I prefer.


    If there are examples of Obama being hypocrytical, I’m sure they will come to light. But frankly, it is a lot easier to find examples of Republican hypocrisy, because the conversative values they preach are not meant for the priviledged/ moneyed upper classes but are designed to keep the working classes in order. Why would anyone who has to work for an employer EVER vote right-wing? Especially now, of all times, during the credit crunch. News flash: It is hardly YOUR interests that the Republican party is representing.

  • Horselover Fat

    OMG. You poor deluded people. First, McCains people undoubtedly PLANNED on this to happen. It is just another neo-con smoke screen to keep the sheeple from actually looking at, or seeing, the real issues here. They totally planned this. Can’t you see that this whole election process has become another version of a soap opera, or professional wrestling? What better way of saying, “Hah, pwnd! THIS is what we think of you, mister and missus average voter.” Between the sophomoric jokes, and the dry humping, you have the bewildered and disenfranchised feminist swing voting democrats looking for someone to defend against oppression. And, besides, do any of you WANT another qualified VP like Cheney? As a puppet, which they all are (please, budding grammaticists, I know this sentence structure is all wrong, so sue me), wouldn’t you rather have a puppet that at leasts looks good whilst playing her part? In an ostensibly representative democractic republic, isn’t she a mirror image of the so called ‘model american’? All tease, and no please. Next thing that is released will probably be a “show me your tits” photo, or Playboy spread… Now, who of you is going to complain about that?

  • Todd

    How can anyone that sides for Obama for president, say that Sarah Palin in not ready for VP? What has Obama done that makes him so “prepared” to be president? Sarah Palin has had far more executive experience than Obama. The most he has done is run his own rockstar campaign.

  • bob

    There are a lot of hypocrites on this site, going after Palin while conveniently forgetting the many, many short comings of their own candidates. Women are crazy if they don’t vote for her, just b/c she doesn’t look like Madeline Albright or Janet Reno doesn’t mean she isn’t capable. Her record shows she isn’t afraid to call out the establishment and stand for and DO what is right. Unlike most career politicians, she thinks like most Americans think, and that in itself gives her perspective and understanding . Remember – he who is without sin, cast the first stone

  • Shell

    Just Jared you are pathetic



  • jennifer

    Even as adults, we as a society are still “so high school” and it is really embarassing to me.
    Do we as adults really need to bash and dig up crap that really has no bearing on a current situation just so that we can feel better about ourselves?
    In my opinion she is like everyone else in this country, just living and the rest of us really need to grow up!!

  • jennifer

    TO uHHH # 61



  • bonzo

    so what? why is this news?

  • Matt

    We were all young once. We wore stupid shirts, craved anyone’s attention we could find. I’m a Democrat, but I’m not naive to know that our future president Barack Obama drank, did cocaine, and smoked both cigarettes and marijuana. If she comes out an denounces the pictures, I’d have a problem with that. You live, you learn. Sometimes you just do silly things.

  • DG

    How dare Sarah wear a silly t-shirt at about the same time Barack was using cocaine!

  • Tired of Idiots

    Why do you keep insulting JUST JARED? Is he the only BLOG with these pictures? EVERYBODY has them. Palin is the talk of the town, Blogs post things people are interested in. If you wanna bury your heads in the sand, stay at home, shut your doors, unplug your PCs, TVs and Radios, stuff cotton balls in your ear, Do whatever you want but do NOT click on a website and then call the owner pathetic for posting something the entire nation is talking about. It make you PATHETIC.

  • Britney

    omg! What a stupid ho bag!

  • flibbidy

    She was just a college student and lots of us do dumb things/act dumb when we are young. This is not a reason to be opposed to her.

    No, no. I am opposed to her for entirely different reasons.

  • uhhhhh

    to jennifer 87:

    You aren’t catching on obviously.

    Her personal life and her political stances don’t fit. She says “just say no” is the only option to offer teenagers-and yet she’s wearing fck me tshirts in college.
    Interesting that you guys aren’t understanding how her personal life and her political agendas are completely conflicting and hypocritical.
    I don’t care about Palin’s past personally. I care about her political agendas however that are completely hypocritical.

  • notArepublicananymore

    Give the woman a break about the shirt. Stupid sayings were common on shirts in the 80′s. In another 20 years there will be old (taken now) photos of a candidate with the word juicy across her butt.

    Now if you want to talk about her position on teaching intelligent design or abstinence only sex ed – go ahead and rip into her.

  • jD

    Jared, seriously? Could you be any more transparent?

  • hi

    She is the most sexy politician since Cindy McCain…. the republicans have got a ticket to get my rocks off!

    Now there is some RED MEAT I can chew on!!!!

  • hi

    THE Republicans are HOT!!!! The Repubs have a ticket to get my rocks off.

    NOW, THAT is some RED MEAT I can chew on, if ya know what I mean!

  • brad

    How can you not judge someone who might be the vice president of a country? If you dont judge their actions and words (and those of their family members), how do you make an informed, well-thought choice of the people who should run your country?

  • Chris


    “This is freaking ridiculous. Hypocritical, too. Don’t for one moment try to claim that you would make the same remarks if pics of a college-age Obama wearing tshirts with profanity surfaced. You’d be cheering him on!

    Freaking hypocrites give most of us political PROGRESSIVES a bad name.”

    Screw yourself. If you’re a fundie, and you don’t practice what you preach, expect to be treated like the idiot that you are.
