The nation was still rejoicing with the news of Sarah Palin being the choice of McCain, when I received the remark: “You know… you could do a really good impersonation of her. The pulled up hair, the glasses, the lips, the suits… seriously you should look at becoming a brunette and hope the Republicans win. You could have a whole new second career as an impersonator!”
I actually took it as a compliment. Afterall she was voted “America’s Hottest Governor” and was a beauty queen in the 80’s. Still I guess I’m not seeing alot of resemblance. Then Mom tells me this afternoon “you look a bit like the new vice presidential candidate” I guess it’s true if your Mom says it.
Back when the Monica Lewinsky issue was hot, I had just dyed my hair dark brown at just the wrong time. So that year for Halloween I dressed up as Monica, complete with the blue dress and black beret. So it’s not like being linked to a political image is new to me. I’m just thankful this time it’s something / someone to be proud of.
