Palin Ditches Bangs

Original post made by She is Pretty Though, Duveneck School, on Oct 8, 2008

Seen speaking in Pennsylvania today, she has swept her bangs-in-the-eyes to the side. Is she trying to be taken more seriously?

Maybe she should ditch the dangling square earrings, the winks, blowing kisses, and the girlie wave next.

She is trying to look (and act) less like Tina Fey.

McCain is sanwiched between Sarah Palin and a knockout blonde. That blonde can't be Cindy McCain, can it? Whatever, the guy has taste in hot women.

He gets my vote!

Kerry says: "the guy has taste in hot women." Sadly, you are right. Sex had a lot to do with McCain's choice of Sarah Palin. Did you see the expression on his face when he announced Sarah Palin as his running mate? A lot of men are voting for the ticket just because Sarah Palin looks sexy.

Interesting that some of us can read the news articles, watch the commentaries, watch the debates.

And then other people vote based upon such a simple thing such as appearance.

Better than not voting at all? Should there be a law requiring people to vote? Um...that might make people who don't study the issues have some power. That's when the electoral vote kicks in big time.

The next phase of feminism must circle back and reappropriate the ancient persona of the mother -- without losing career ambition or power of assertion.
Betty Friedan, who had first attacked the cult of postwar domesticity, had long warned second-wave feminists such as Gloria Steinem about the damaging exclusion of homemakers from their value system.
The animus of liberal feminists toward religion must also end (I am speaking as an atheist).
Feminism must reexamine all of its assumptions, including its death grip on abortion, if it wishes to survive.

The hysterical emotionalism and eruptions of amoral malice at the arrival of Sarah Palin exposed the weaknesses and limitations of current feminism.
But I am convinced that Palin's bracing mix of male and female voices, as well as her grounding in frontier grit and audacity, will prove to be a galvanizing influence on aspiring Democratic women politicians too, from the municipal level on up.
Palin has shown a brand-new way of defining female ambition -- without losing femininity, spontaneity or humor.
She's no pre-programmed wonk of the backstage Hillary Clinton school; she's pugnacious and self-created, the product of no educational or political elite --
which is why her outsider style has been so hard for media lemmings to comprehend.

Maybe she thinks her bangs are hiding her winks. Or maybe her bangs caused her to overwink.

I think Sarah is hot! But who was that blonde? She is steaming!

I know a number of older women who voted for John Kennedy when he, and they, were young, just becasue they thought he was sexy. Bill Clinton made some women slide off their seats.

Get over it!

McCain is the MAN!

Again, reverse the gender and see how the double standard works.
