    I actually saw some girls at the convention who did their hair up to look like Palin's. One even had similar glasses on and looked like a junior version of her. :D

    It was pretty funny to say the least!

    Eh, I don't care. I don't have to comb it. Shoot, I hate combing my own hair.

    Attacking this women on style is just a measure of how little there is, at this point, to bring to bare against Polin. Politically, the Democratic Party has to be very careful here. She is a candidate with very few weakness because the things you can point to are of a personal nature. Her 17 year old pregnant daughter (that's something that every family deals with, of sorts). Her husband who races snowmobiles (nothing there to get your teeth into). How she wears her hair (This is a beautiful women. Saying her hair is 20 years out of date is like looking at Grace Kelly with her hair swept up and saying, that's so 50s. Who cares. Grace Kelly is as beautiful today with that hair style as she was 60 years ago. It's timeless.)

    The Democratic party could come of looking very foolish if they choose to attack Polin in this manner. Sophamoric, in fact.

    That is because so many in the party are sophomric, stupid and ignorant.

    ABQ, I don't consider this an attack in the truest sense of the word. Only because I have seen a TON of articles about Hillary Clinton, Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama's fashion sense. Their differing styles. Where they shop, how they style their hair. All of that.

    This country is built on exploiting women's looks. For good and for bad. This isn't a dem vs repub thing, this is media image-driven thing. It's only natural for mags and other outlets to come out discussing Palin's style. The proof of how important it is, will be reflected in how her style evolves in the next two months. And trust me, there will be more articles on her sense of style.

    For example, when Hillary was first lady, they did alot to lessen her image as corporate shark by making her appearances more ladylike. See Michelle Obama as an example. When Hillary ran for president, then all you saw were pants suits. It's a natural progression.

    Personally, I think the updo style fits Palin's conservative image. Wearing her hair down would prolly give off beauty queen jokes and whatnot.

    On a side note, since we're talking fashion. I really liked the dress her daughter wore. Very cute.

    I beg to differ. It's actually interesting to me. It strikes me that it really doesn't matter if the critic is done by the Democratic Party or not. At the end of the day, public perception will be that it came from the Democratic Party regardless of validity. This is more about perception then anything else. This is a fight the Democratic Party would do well to distince itself from at all cost.

    The Rags will have there say but the Democratic Party should make certain that they do not let themselves be associated with any of this business. It's bad politics for them IMO.

    Then we agree to disagree.

    I don't see this as politics as usual or an attack by the Dems. I can find a ton of articles about the ladies in office and their styles have evolved. This particular just quoted stylists who suggested she needs to do something different with her hair, not do a full-scale makeover. She's even quoted in Vogue about her hair style.

    Time will tell. However, I say this now. If the Democratic Party allows themselves to be associated with this type of criticisam, which IMO is inevitable, it will cost them.

    Lets watch and see how this plays out.

    I had more of a problem with her not showing any neck line and wearing very light panty hose under a black skirt. It's after Labour Day so she should have worn darker hosiery.

    Don't vote for McCain because of Palin's hairstyle?

    Maybe that's why Bush's approval rating is so bad? Cheney's dome.

    :omg:
