New York – O'Donnell may be the Tea Party's latest star, but her fashion sense is reminiscent of the movement's original guiding light. Is the "new It Girl" ripping off Sarah Palin's look?

People can't stop talking about Christine O'Donnell, the unexpected victor in Delaware's Senate primary. The media has confronted the Tea Party-backed candidate with a string of gaffes from the past — her admitted dabbling in witchcraft, her declaration that homosexuals have an "identity disorder" — not to mention her fashion sense, which some say deliberately mimics Sarah Palin's red-suited, hair-tossing personal style. Commentators weigh in:

It's all about Palin: O'Donnell's appearance on the campaign trail has been an "unmistakable homage" to Palin, says Margaret Carlson at The Daily Beast. The controversial candidate "used to be a dead ringer for Elaine on 'Seinfeld,' but now she sports a "bright red suit," along with a couple of other Palin touches, like "bedhead hair and the glasses she doesn't seem to need."

She's a dead ringer: "The Palin [influence] is strong in this one," Jon Stewart joked after O'Donnell's primary victory. "Just give her bangs" and "oh my God!" (Watch Stewart's comments)
Fox News is loving this: The conservative network is pushing O'Donnell as a "younger female Palin clone, who sells the whole right wing clueless cutie, warrior-of-God gimmick harder than Palin ever has been able to," says Jason Easley at Politics USA.

There's a Tea Party fashion code: The similarities are striking, notably the pairing of "ketchup red" suits with pink lipstick (more subtly matte in O'Donnell's case), says Simon Chilvers at The Guardian, but all female conservative candidates have a fairly uniform look. Palin may have popularized a "breed of power-dressing that thoroughly reeks of the 80s," but O'Donnell is hardly her first imitator.

There's one key difference: Bill Maher, who hosted O'Donnell on his "Politically Incorrect" show during the '90s — and was witness to more than one of her head-scratching comments — highlighted one dissimilarity, appearances aside: "Sarah Palin is mean and Christine is not."





Whodathunkit?:D

Incredible. Women are different from men (if you haven't noticed) they have different backgrounds and they express themselves differently unless they are like the original women pols and they try to act like men. The pubs have a new generation of women who are proud of what they are and make no apology for expressing themselves different from male politicians. And the left.....the knights in shining armour.....the founders of the women's lib movement......respond by......making fun of them at every turn. Nice going. Women politicians are OK with you as long as they are Marxists and walk and talk like Bill Clinton. Just....just....dayum. :nuts:

Uhh, read the article again:

"There's a Tea Party fashion code: The similarities are striking, notably the pairing of "ketchup red" suits with pink lipstick (more subtly matte in O'Donnell's case), says Simon Chilvers at The Guardian, but all female conservative candidates have a fairly uniform look. Palin may have popularized a "breed of power-dressing that thoroughly reeks of the 80s," but O'Donnell is hardly her first imitator."

They are taking politicians they don't like and purposely talking fahion - out of place in political discourse - and leading the reader to think of them in superficial terms rather than the meat of their discourse. It's sort of "we can't win the political argument on the merits, so let's just see if we can make them look vain and shallow". Here's an old leftist argument turned on it's head: If these were men wearing grey suits, would the writer be bashing them for wearing the same "uniform" that "reeks of the 80's"?

A political fishing trip?

It seems pretty substantial when you goolge her and see mostly red suits.
And she never wore glasses before her campaign started up.:huh:


For sure it has nothing to do with blowjobs.

My intent is not to make fun of her.
It is to delve into WHY....... she suddenly changed her visual image to identify with Palin's look.

Well then, someone needs to investigate who told Obama to always wear that same grey-brown suit. It seems like he's trying to mimic Mao. Could he be hinting he is a closet Communist?:crazy:

:laughing: The left is known for being sexist.. look at Aflec & Maher talking about wanting to see her in a bikini.. didn't hear anything from the bogus NOW group on that one.. and the politically correct crowd is silent as well, because they are all leftist posers..

Absolutely true. The left is a paragon of hypocracy when it comes to women. They act like their defenders for decades, and then when some of them turn out not to be liberals, they get treated with total disrespect. Not surprising, actually, since everything libs do is about trying to LOOK noble. Actually being noble isn't an option, but looking that way is very important to them. :nuts:

You and I are old enough to know their true colors..
