The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

The "thrown on without looking" idea has merit, and may well be the answer.

Still, all those donkeys are hard to miss. I wonder if that logic would have worked for my niece when she was young and caught shoplifting? ("Honestly officer, us girls were just going around the mall and someone handed me this!!" )

I don't think there's a message here. But if she is so easy to confuse/trick, then how will she handle tricky international situations in the future? Thinking on your feet seems crucial for a VP, who might well become POTUS at some point.

No, I don't think this means she's not VP material. By itself, it's just an error. But she seems to make a lot of small errors, which together indicate she may not be ready for the big leagues.




As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

There is a perfectly logical explanation for this.
These photos were taken of the autograph line at a Jackasses for McCain-Palin event!

It depends what you mean by "anti".
I don't imagine he'd feel inclined to date either.

OTOH, throw them on the caribou barbie and they'd cook up a treat.

Ok... here we go. They are horses not donkeys. Donkeys have big ears and a shorter snout. They are hourses with flags drapped upon them. This only happens when the president is dead. It says vote. What Palin is saying is vote to kill the chances of Obama getting into the Whitehouse, if it's symbolism you want, there it is.

The President is dead? Someone has given Palin a scarf that signifies the President is dead? WTF? Is this what happens in 'real America'?

How do you know what the subtext is? Did you give the scarf to Palin? How do you know that, following your horse with draped flag theory, someone hasn't given it to Palin meaning, "don't worry, if he gets in, Obama's a dead man!!!1". Yeah, "if it's symbolism you want, there it is". At least with my suggestion it's actually referring to a President not a Presidential candidate.

If she was wearing it in Reno, it was for a brief time..
A few people I know were at the rally..none of them remember a scarf.
None of their photos show a scarf either..Nor does the local newspaper's coverage.

However, it DOES look like those donkeys are standing in a SOUP line.
So, I guess there is a little symbolism happening.

heehaw..

... I'm just wondering... If indeed those are NOT donkeys - they are most definitely NOT elephants - which - if they were it would have left no doubt which party she was supposed to be supporting.
But being a scarf that states 'Vote'... within a red, white, and blue field... and having animals that RESEMBLE donkeys... during a campaign... on a member of the GOP...


Hmmmm....

You can't judge her harshly for this. Someone probably gave it to her and told her the animals on it were elephants.
After all, you can't see elephants from Alaska, so how could she know what they should look like?

Sorry... I guess you're right. They don't have elephants in Alaska... or they may have at one time... but you know the rest.

I fully agree. She's not ready.
(she's more qualified then Obama, but she's not ready).

So ... Since we are discussing Palin's scarf ... and it's obviously NOT one of the newly approved issues that we are supposed to be discussing in the politicis area ... does that mean it's open house on uh-bama and his flag pin flip flopping, etc etc again?

I'm sorry, but those are not horses. Look back at the OP picture to the right of the area that says "Vote." That is NOT a horse. That is clearly a donkey. Zoom in on it if need be.

I'll agree that the scarf was most likely given to her by a citizen as a gift during the signing. She didn't pay attention and just threw it on as a polite gesture. It appears as though she needs to pay attention.

Whoever handed her the scarf if that is what happened is a genius. Talk about making a bold statement and then having it turn into a HUGE HUGE HUGE statement by the candidates own hand.

Well clearly it was handed to her. I don't see it on her while she is speaking at the podium. I think she may have just put it on without realy looking at it, but boy what an gaff to make.

People do make mistakes like my trying to stop the post to correct the "gaff" gaffe.

Star for you. Even though you would have loved for it to be real, you debunked the myth.


LOL, if that's photoshop, then I'm John Titor.

first thing I thought of as well.

This is such a non-issue, and it has absolutely no bearing on anything... although I am both fascinated and amused by all the claims that this is photoshop trickery. Keep them coming!
