A Window into the Mind of Palin

Thanks to the people over at People, we now have a better understanding of the inner workings of Sarah Palin’s mind. Apparently to her, “explaining it away” is her way of saying LYING.

A new biography of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin reveals that her secret pregnancy with son Trig was nearly uncovered when one of her daughters discovered Trig’s prenatal ultrasound scan and confronted Palin with the picture.

“Sarah made one slip-up – but [she] dampened suspicion by explaining it away,” reports Trailblazer: An Intimate Biography of Sarah Palin, by PEOPLE Assistant Editor Lorenzo Benet and being published Tuesday by Simon & Schuster’s Threshold Editions.

So now, we understand how Sarah was able to tell all those lies during the campaign. She wasn’t really lying, she was “explaining it away.” I wonder how many “explanations” she would have given us if she had become Vice President? (shudder)

While attempting to find a picture of Sarah for this article, I came across this intriguing quote from howstuffworks.com.

One day in April 1996, Sarah Palin waited in line at a cosmetics counter at the Anchorage, Alaska, JCPenney. She’d fibbed to her husband Todd that she planned on going shopping at Costco. Instead, she made a beeline for JCPenney to see Ivana Trump. As she waited, a local reporter for the Anchorage Daily News who’d come out to cover the publicity event interviewed her. Why did she want to see Ivana Trump? “‘We want to see Ivana … because we are so desperate in Alaska for any semblance of glamour and culture,'” she told the reporter.

So, now we know that she lies both to her husband and her family, and that she is “desperate…for any semblance of glamour and culture.” I think I understand her even more than when I started this post. This quote explains a lot about Sarah’s behavior in the past few years, don’t you think?
