Palin: I Didn't Roll My Eyes at That Woman

'I've been hit by another spin operation'

(Newser) – Sarah Palin is upset that the "lamestream media" pounced on her for appearing to "roll my eyes" when the former constituent who's blasting her as the "worst governor ever" tells Palin she's a teacher—an exchange reality TV cameras naturally caught on tape (catch up on the confrontation here). "Yes, it's come to this: the media is now trying to turn my eyebrow movements into story lines," Sarah grouses on her Facebook page.

As for her pooh-poohing a teacher, nothing could be further from the truth, writes Palin, who goes on to list the long line of teachers she comes from, from her grandparents to father to brother. "We didn't think she rolled her eyes either," notes Jim Newell for Gawker, who doesn't entirely let her off the hook. "So what was that very sneering gesture of disgust she made?" You be the judge. Palin's last words of advice? "Stay classy, LSM."
