This picture just makes me laugh

The look on her face is really funny.

What isn't funny, but puzzling and I don't know if it is meaningful or not... is that I hadn't seen any pictures of her before this morning. I've been a little out of the loop--I had a rough idea of what she looked like, but no mental image. I had only heard what she had to say, and I didn't like it. I don't like how her first out-of-the-gate things to say belittle the contributions of somebody who I respect A LOT. There's more but I won't go into it here.

Now after looking through a roll of pictures of her, however, I can't help but like her more because she wears hot shoes and has a seriously stylish coat. Because she is well put together and her hair looks good. Because it looks like she wears Bare Minerals foundation and her glasses are pretty modern. BUT THAT'S THE ONLY REASON I LIKE HER BETTER: BECAUSE OF WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE AND HOW SHE DRESSES.

Isn't that kind of disturbing? That my style-sense unconsciously goes "Okay, you're in the club because you look like one of the cool kids, even though I TOTALLY DISAGREE with most of the decisions you would make for our country."

  1. Don't be fooled by her appearance. She is a completely deranged racist woman-hating theocratic right-wing fuckup, and that is exactly why she was selected as the McCain's running-mate.

  2. Uhm, your awesome and everything, but "I like her shoes, ergo I like her!" is beyond febile minded. Not just disturbing. Shameful. *stops, gets off high horse long enough to google-image*WOW! She has GREAT SHOES! ...Still hate her.I'm a woman of principle. I should start a "I LOVE Sarah Palin's Shoes but I HATE Sarah Palin" group on facebook.

  3. Yeah, see, it's gross. I am grossed out by it! It's a little more complex than 'liking' her exactly, more like the instinct to hate was decreased... but luckily I do have a decent amount of control over my biases so I can tamp it down and still completely hate the idea of her having anything to do with running our country.

  4. Oh, and, you know what creeps me out about her even more? That Tina Fey looks a lot like her, and even played her on SNL recently, and I LOOK A LOT LIKE TINA FEY. Oh, my, god, I am disturbed by that degree of separation.
