I really hope she takes her own advice and thumbs her nose at such critics. Also, she shouldn't allow the sexists in either
party to persuade her to change her physical image, i.e., "style" her hair or insist she wear contacts to make her "more attractive". There are already enough male chauvinists calling her a "babe".
Maybe it's just me, but I felt that Hillary was, to her detriment, overstyled and made up during the primaries. Her male opponents were, too, but obviously it wasn't much of an issue with them.
Nobody has commented on Todd Palin's clothing, but Cindy McCain's wardrobe and jewelry get a lot of press.
I'm not a Palin fan, but I was really annoyed today when I read in a German news magazine that her hairstyle was "deliberately casual". Excuse me? She's the working mother of five children, the oldest of whom is barely out of his teens, the youngest an infant, and is on the campaign trail. Is she supposed to make the time to have a personal hairstylist do her hair x number of times a day, despite the fact that the way she wears it really suits her?
Are superficialities the only things that count nowadays?
