Sarah Palin, Swimsuit Competition Edition

posted by on September 26 at 13:35 PM

It took this long for video from the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant to surface? Or did I miss it earlier? In any case, here it is, via Sullivan (and with a 50-second intro by some guy in Juneau who apparently keeps VHS tapes of such things). UPDATE: That first video was removed, so I’ve swapped it out with a new one:

Wow... three minutes after posted and it's already a busted video link.

I'd like to skip the obvious technical possibilities here and go straight and headlong into a conspiracy theory.

The Obama/Biden smear monster has already moved to block the viewing of this. The fear is that, once the American people see Palin in a swimsuit, the race is over.

Geezer and Gidget 2008!

That music is not creepy. At all.

Fat bottom girls, they make this rockin' world go 'round.

OK -- now I understand why Gov. MooseMeat came in second. Not a great tushie. Not bad, but not Miss Alaska good!

Oh, Jubilation. Seriously? That's supposed to be a fat-bottomed girl? WTF?

Posted by leek | September 26, 2008 2:07 PM

can anyone explain to me in simple terms why we keep hearing that Palin is considered attractive or sexy? i just haven't seen it, not with my own eyes. not in 1984 (not one bit) and certainly not now today.

not that's even worthy of note (at all) next to her repugnant policies and views, mind you. i just don't understand why so many news stories seem to insinuate that.. are there actually people out there who find her attractive?

Fat Bottom, Jube? Seriously?

I beg to differ. Sarah Palin circa 1984 has a serious deficiency in the ass department, if you ask me.

i don't know... shouldn't we not be paying so much attention to her physical appearance, or that she was in a beauty contest?

Posted by infrequent | September 26, 2008 2:22 PM

i would have hit that in 1984. flat ass & all.

The video is "no longer available." Hmmm...

@11 Don't try to deconstruct the feminist implications of Sarah Palin in a swimsuit. It will give you an aneurysm.

Posted by blank12357 | September 26, 2008 2:39 PM

did someone (@12 to be specific) just say "FLAT ass"??? are you kidding?
jubilation was a damn lot closer to it when he said FAT ass..
so, ok, maybe it's somewhere in the middle.

but.. i'll be damned if i can see how this is beauty pageant material..

She has the nicest ass I've ever seen on a white girl.

Bitch can't walk in heels.

Posted by Gitai | September 26, 2008 3:42 PM

you white boys are easily impressed. that is a small booty.

The real boner killer was that jazz trumpet music in the background.

Posted by Joe M | September 26, 2008 4:28 PM

A lot of women do these things for scholarships or for publicity/career advancement. I have lots of reasons to not respect her; the fact that she paraded around in a swimsuit doesn't even hit the radar.

Posted by Jaxxi Hax | September 26, 2008 4:40 PM

Maybe she could fix tensions in Iraq by going over there and walking around in a swimsuit.

Posted by Todd | September 26, 2008 4:56 PM

Very Presidential.

Posted by snarky | September 26, 2008 5:03 PM

@16 and @17 tied for the win.

We've seen Palin, and we've seen Obama.

Next up: Biden vs McCain, the Swimsuit Competition.

Typical, standard caucasian female FLAT AS A BOARD ASS. Yuck. When I bend a lady over, I'd like for there to be some nice meaty buns there, otherwise what's the point. But she definitely makes a better model than she would a candidate for national office. WF Buckley would never have approved of her. For VP that is.
