We’ve wondered about her lip liner, gabbed about her helmet hair, and even spotted her spittin’ image lurking on this very site, but now I have a bit of an out-there proposition for you.
Whatever you make of her politics/family life/religious beliefs and irrespective of how freakin’ scary the thought of herself and McCain in The White House, is Sarah Palin an inspiration to glasses wearers?
I heard on d’wireless last week that loads of stores in the States are actually sold out of Sarah-stylee rimless specs, and ABC News has reported that the manufacturers of her $375 frames are snowed under with frantic requests from stockists looking to get in multiple replicas of the exact pair that she sports.
Now, admittedly, she probably believes that contact lenses are evil and laser eye surgery is the work of Satan himself, but it’s pretty unusual for a woman of such a high profile to keep her specs on at all times. So part of me thinks fair fecks. (The other part of me thinks she’s just wearing them because she reckons they make her look like she’s got smarts.)
Anyways, best get hunting for a pair now to really finish off your Halloween costume before the shortage hits our shores…
