What can you glean from Sarah Palin's facial expressions?
The first time I saw her hideous "blood lible" video, I couldn't help but notice her facial expressions, specifically, the way she gives a smug grin after an impact sentence. It doesn't take but 30 seconds before she begins, then she picks up steam. It's as if she's saying non-verbally, "Yep, I said it, and that's the way it is." Perhaps even more. I would like to hear an expert's interpretation.

Somewhat related, the way she over-dramatizes the word "tragedy" as "traaa-gedy" (while lifting her head slightly) makes me think that she doesn't believe it really was that tragic at all. Nothing more than the media whipping Liberals into a frenzy. The span between 3:21 and 3:50 contains "tragedy," a few smug grins, and blood lible.

3. Contempt
After she said the word "sadness" one side of her face flashed a raised lip of contempt.

5. And the way she sticks her chin out with a closed mouth grin

clearly signals defiance. it doesn't signal sympathy and caring in any way, whatsoever.

10. It Looked To Me Like She Is Putting On Weight......
my girlfriend says nothing makes a women angrier than being told that she is putting on weight.

So Sarah - your looking kind of portly these days - old fat in the face.

If we keep up this meme maybe we can really piss her off.

13. In another thread about that creepy 'Sarah breathing' video, someone suggested
watching it with no sound. You get to see the full range of her emotions - from pout to...well...pout.
