PROOF! Sarah Palin Doesn't Write OR Read Her Facebook Posts - UPDATED

On Tuesday, January 26, 2010, Sarah Palin wrote signed this statement on Facebook:
Women’s Rights groups, like NOW, commendably call out advertisers and networks for airing sexist and demeaning portrayals of women that lead to young women’s diminished self-esteem and acceptance of roles as mere sexed-up objects.
On Thursday, January 28, 2010, Sarah Palin told Greta Van Susteren:
I mean, there are so many offensive commercials out there and, um. There's commercials out there that belittle women and demean them and make them feel like sex objects and I haven't heard a whole lot of protest from N.O.W. on that. H/T Bree Palin and a Guest commenter.

Tuesday, she commended N.O.W.; Thursday, she slammed them — for not doing what she had praised them for doing on Tuesday!

Who wrote the Facebook post? Why wasn't Sarah Palin familiar with the post's contents?

Update: Here is the snapshot of Sarah Palin's Facebook Post on Tuesday:

Wasilla's Light

At Gryphen's, there is a story from The National, a newspaper in the United Arab Emirates. In The National's story, about Sarah Palin's book signing in Wasilla, there is a photo of Wasilla's Mocha Moose, during full daylight, and a photo of Jessica's Beehive Beauty Shop in low-light. The National's Mocha Moose photo reminded me of a photo of the Mocha Moose made in low-light by Bill Hess. Seeing The National's photo of Jessica's beauty shop reminded me, too, that there can be some beautiful light in Wasilla.

Here's The National's Mocha Moose photo, where Sarah Palin drives-through:

Here, Bill Hess has made a photo of the Mocha Moose when he visited at another time of day:

And, here is the low-light photo of Jessica's Beehive Beauty Shop, where Sarah Palin has had her hair done:

Frank Flavin's photos are from a story about Sarah Palin's book signing, in Wasilla, Alaska.

Bill Hess covered the book signing, too. Bill Hess has seen Russia from Alaska! Bill Hess' blog — Wasilla, Alaska, by 300 ... — can be found on the blogroll.

It Was Fact-checked!

What? Going Rogue was fact-checked?

No! We're not fools. Me and Mrs. Palin was fact-checked!

We can now read the story as a series of episodes out of Levi's life with the Palins.

We can now ask, "Who was present in each episode? Who could verify this?"

Remember! It's not necessarily someone we're told was present.

How do I know this?

Levi Johnston encountered Meghan McCain at the 2008 Republican National Convention:
The night Sarah made her speech, Willow and I were in the hair room. One of the hairdressers was working on Willow’s hair, and the other was doing mine, when Meghan McCain walked in and asked if someone could do hers. “I have a show,” she said. One hairdresser told her she would do her hair as soon as she was done and Meghan just lost it. “You’re going to do her hair before you do mine?” She got riled up and started dropping cusswords. “How are you going to do her hair when I have a show in 20 minutes? You guys are supposed to be working for my dad,” she said. “You’re not doing my fucking hair? Maybe you need to get some more people.” Then she left. [A representative for Meghan McCain called Levi’s account a “naïve mischaracterization.”]
If characterizations weren't imperfect — it wasn't a lie, but Levi's naïve and unaware that there is royalty in America — Levi might have told us of his regret about failing to realize that he should have jumped from his chair so Meghan wouldn't have to wait. So, you see, Meghan didn't actually "lose it;" her reaction wasn't unusual, given her status. Anyway, the takeaway from Levi's description of that scene is that Vanity Fair checked-out what Levi told them.

Meghan McCain pushed back! Over a "naive mischaracterization," not a lie.

None of the story's other participant's pushed-back!
