Latest Palin Non-Scandal: Grabbing Too Much Swag or Something

It doesn't matter whether any of these gossip reports are true. It's all about a raging case of full-blown Palin Derangement Syndrome.
Sarah Palin and her entourage descended "like locusts" on the Oscar swag suite, scarfing up freebies in a binge that "practically cleaned the place out," celebrity gossips reported Thursday.

The former Alaska Gov's Wednesday pigout included jewels from Pascal Mouawad, watches by Skagen and a fancy new hairdo for her daughter Willow. The new coiffure came courtesy of Erick Orellana, Jennifer Aniston's longtime hairstylist, witnesses said.

The Los Angeles Times reported Palin was supposed to donate all of her gift items back to the Silver Spoon Oscar Suite for auction, as well as $1,700 of her own cash, in support of Red Cross efforts in Haiti and Chile.

But E! Online insisted, "we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag."

The entertainment news outlet quoted an unnamed vendor who said that as many as 20 people from the Palin camp swarmed the event.

"They were like locusts," he said.

News of Palin's grabfest ignited the blogosphere.
Of course it did. They'd rather obsess on her instead of talking about all the corrupt Democrats falling by the wayside in recent days. A Congressman hitting on a male staffer? Who cares! Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee up to his neck in scandal? Who cares! Willow Palin got a free haircut!

Such a horrible woman accepting all that free swag.

The PuffHost is agog over this new scandal. I imagine Arianna herself never took a freebie before.

Update: Thanks to Hot Air and Big Hollywood for the links.

The LA Times story is here and it contradicts the gossip outlets apparently just making up stories.
I'm told the oft-parodied politico donated all of her gift items back to the Silver Spoon for auction, as well as about $1,700 of her own cash, in support of multiple Red Cross efforts, including those in Haiti and Chile.
Speaking of making things up, Media Bistro says Palin "looted" the gift suite.

How kind of them. You suppose if the Obamas helped themselves to a couple of freebies the term "looted" would be used?
