Sarah Palin Boosts Wig Sales

We don't post a lot of political stuff on Neatorama - but I couldn't resist this one: Republican VP-nominee Sarah Palin is sparking a buying frenzy for ... wigs!

Since John McCain chose her last month as his running mate, Gov. Palin's personal style has sparked a buying frenzy. Many women are snapping up her choices of shoes and eyeglasses and blogging about which brand of lipstick she wears. Hairstylists and wig sellers report sudden demand for her trademark up-dos. Indeed, the brands behind Gov. Palin's fashion taste have gone into overdrive seeking to cash in on the association.

On Wednesday, issued a news release boasting that it has wigs and hair pieces "that reflect the new looks made popular by Sarah Palin," along with style tips to "instantly" achieve the swept-back style.

Amongst other fashion windfall beneficiaries are the "Naughty Monkey" shoes and eyeglasses by Kazuo Kawasaki.


Let's not have the comments degenerate into the usual mess, mmkay?

Now now,
The post did request that we not get into the "mess"

I am surprised that a lot women are wearing wigs. I know about smaller hairpieces can mimic Palin's updos....well I learned something new.

I'm with you, Vi; the vitriol gets really, really tiring after a while. And it's way too easy to be unfriendly on this internet thing. Some of my best friends are way left of center, but we just agree to disagree. It's difficult sometimes with some issues, but I realize they, like you, have their own stories, and those stories, like my own, are far from complete. We all have a lot to learn.

And apologies for the comment recycling thing; the copy/paste/change names method of turning an argument around can be fun, but it's not always effective and only sometimes funny.

Oh, and I'm still waiting for an honest "wtf" about Obama, but won't hold my breath. Cheers!

Addendum: I'm becoming fond of you, but if we spar in future, could you ease up on the parodying of my language and points? They deserve to be considered on their own merits and not recycled as a convenient retort. I appreciate it. (I'm not being snide; this a real request. Thanks.)

Well, thanks for at least being respectful. I still wish I could get an honest "wtf" about SP, but that's minor in the grand scheme. It's truly weird to me how we, and by we I mean all those who represent the two of us in this context, are so diametrically opposed in our conceptions of what's going on. But hey, nobody said life made sense. Or if they did, they were lying.

Personal best wishes to you; may your party go up in flames. (Friendly joke attempt, damn it. Honestly, I'm tired of the vitriol. Perhaps you will accept the fact that my convictions come from a place as legitimate as yours and we can agree to throw up our hands and have a rueful laugh. Enough said.)

I know I won't be satisfying you any time soon, Vi, which is why I didn't try very hard. I think it's pretty obvious that the McCain ticket doesn't excite me greatly, but I don't see the degree of issues with the pair that you do. I won't be voting for them in November, I'll be voting against Obama/Obiden.

The thought of either Obama or Biden in the Oval Office is very, very frightening to me. I believe they are a reckless, dangerous pair, and anyone who had truly, vividly visualized either of them in the Oval Office would at least admit it’s a downright scary image of the future of our country.

You're right; this "conversation" (and I use that term very loosely) is pretty much over. I feel like I'm talking to a wall. I am thankful though that people who share your opinion are in the minority, and I'm fully confident that by November the majority of voters will see Obama as the empty suit he is.
