Pappas is a graduate of The University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., where he was editor-in-chief of The Sewanee Purple. While in college, he did internships at NBC's Meet the Press and the White House. He grew up in Mobile, Ala., where he graduated from St. Paul's Episcopal School. He and his wife live on Capitol Hill.

Sarah Palin says the British tabloid Daily Mail lied by reporting that she sobbed after viewing a new film about herself.

“Obviously we’ve seen our share of media lies, but the latest fabrications circulated take a big slice of the cake,” the former governor of Alaska said in a Facebook posting. (Bristol Palin on her family: ‘I think we have some of the thickest skin’)

The Daily Mail reported that “Palin was reduced to tears after her husband flew into a rage over her new movie The Undefeated.”

“Huh? Really? The beautiful town of Pella, Iowa, was flooded with an army of media covering the premiere of this film,” she wrote. “You’d think someone would have caught those tears and rages on tape, right?”

“Todd and I were overwhelmed with gratitude, and we hope everyone sees this film.”

In her posting, Palin also encouraged the media to view the movie, which is about her governing of Alaska and premiered in Iowa last week.

“There’s a story there, but you’ll never find it if you continue lying and carrying water for the powers that be,” she said.

    The Daily Mail is known for untruths! Just today they’ve inserted a story about the Presidents father wanting to put him up for adoption, to the Salvation Army if you can believe it, just so he could stay in the U.S..The DM is an equal opportunity lying sack of…Now, go make a big deal out of that info, trolls.

    • virginiagentleman

      The article is in the U.S. section of todays DC with a link to the Daily Mail story.

  • SheerPolitics

    Being that the British empire is going down in flames and soon to be under Sharia law, you’d think they’d have more to worry about than Sarah Palin!

  • UncleDon

    You know, when a so called “man” tells me he’s a liberal, I automatically, and usually correctly, assume he’s a sissy. But to see how much Sarah Palin intimidates them confirms why the want “partners”. Boys, these comments about her say more about you than about her. It’s twue, just ax Barney Fwank.

      You know, you would think that since the liberals are supposed to be such pro-Gay supporters, you know, so tolerant of other views and all, that they would say something like, “I respect the gays and you, sir, shouldn’t disparage them with your wild accusations and stereotypical comments.” But, instead, the left ALWAYS comes back with “Yea, you’re such an a-hole you must be gay too!” — which is really quite telling about how liberals really feel about homosexuality.

      • truebearing

        Excellent point, and but way too advanced for condi to understand, obviously. Keep in mind though, that gays call each other “faggots” in a derisive way, which shows how they really feel about themselves.

        If you want to get on condi’s good side, ask him about women’s panties and the like. He was just commenting on them on another thread.

  • pink

    And would any of us have heard about the “lie” if she hadn’t publicly whined about it on Facebook? I guess the film’s opening didn’t generate enough publicity for her.

    • truebearing

      poink,

      You whine incessantly, and you don’t have any media attacking your sorry ass.

      Now just because I replied to your comment, don’t get your hopes up that I’ve lowered my standards far enough to consider dating you. I prefer to keep my Gorgons in antiquity where they belong, and when you were born.

      • pink

        Such a sad little pervert you are.

    • BigRmv

      I don’t think that’s the point, Pink. People don’t open movies in Iowa if they’re looking for box office numbers. They do it for political reasons–the same reason the Daily Mail wrote that article.

      Once again, supposed news reporters are openly lying about Sarah Palin. The fact that she’s able to glean publicity from these attacks while defending her honor just shows how media savvy she really is.

  • borntoraisehogs

    I take the Daily Mails version.

  • Realist4U

    The ObaMafia has been scared of Ms Palin since 2008, because she is probably the only one in America that can save America. The goal of these miscreants is to destroy America. Make sense?

    • tarkus1

      So, Sarah the moron is the only hope for America? I don’t have any problem with a woman president, but for goodness sake, you could at least pick a smart one, not media-savvy smart, but intellectually smart. I would love to see her debate an actual intelligent woman on specifics of policy rather than bumper-sticker platitudes;she would show her true ignorance. I have a long list of woman who would OWN her in a debate,Hillary Clinton, Christie Whitman, and especially Elizabeth Warren spring to mind. I would pay to see that!

  • GhostRider75

    What’s the matter Sarah, no “lame stream media” to attack? You had to find a British tabloid to attack?

    Someone please tell me when her 15 minutes is up.

    • 8second.ride

      She’s the one attacking? She called out a media outlet for a blatant, unproven lie about her, which, had it been made about anybody besides Palin it would be called self-defense, and you claim SHE’s the one attacking?

      PDS truly does eliminate all common sense.

      • GhostRider75

        Oh please. 90% of the people in the US wouldn’t have even know about it if she hadn’t whined about it.

        Besides we only have her word they told a lie and she has been caught in many fabrications of truth

        • 8second.ride

          “90% of the people”

          Doesn’t matter — you were wrong. She is NOT the “attacker”, she was defending herself. That’s what’s wrong with you anti-Palin drones, you can’t use any common sense. Always with the dramatic “make her look as bad as possible” comments. It’s tiring and it’s stupid.

          “we only have her word they told a lie”

          PDS bizarro world! They made the accusation. It’s up to them to prove it.

          Is there anything anti-Palin that you don’t enable?

        • BigRmv
    • truebearing

      GoofWriter,

      That sure was a moronic statement. I’ve noticed you have a knack for idiocy.

      If i punch your stupid face and you attempt to punch back, is that you defending yourself, or attacking me? Get back to me when you figure it out. Don’t strain yourself.

      What are all of these falsehoods you are babbling about, or did you just have another uncontrollable attack of verbal diahrrea?

  • riseabove

    Palin should just take out a full-size disclaimer on the front page of all of the major newspapers saying…”whatever it is the Left is saying about me, even if it hasn’t been thought of yet, I didn’t say it or do it.”

    Yer way off, I say, yer way off this time son…

    Keep on calling the media out on their lies Sarah.

    I already knew your record and I think you’re great.
    I can’t wait to see the movie about you.
    I hope it helps to set the record straight.

    Hey, I wonder what happened with all those emails?
    Could it be that all they saw was a hard working, caring and committed individual?
    Still laughing about that one…
