Regarding your statement, "Well, Sarah Palin could have said no to the shorts. But she didn't."
You should consider all the facts prior to forming your opinion. Gov. Palin did not agree to a request from Newsweek to be photographed in running shorts for a political profile piece. The photograph in question was taken by Runner's World Magazine in an Aug 2008 photoshoot; completely unrelated to the Newsweek article. (see: http://goo.gl/5ZVsI ) Newsweek acquired the photograph and chose to use it for the cover.
According to Gov. Palin, the Runner's World photo was taken for use in a profile on health and fitness - an entirely appropriate image for the given context.
You are, in a sense, correct that she could have said no to taking the "shorts" photo, but I believe you are misrepresenting her decision by not informing your readers of the original purpose of the photo.
