Michael Steele's Latest Indignity? Sarah Palin Steals His Most Famous Line For Keeps, Also Dresses Weirdly

I'm sure you've heard about this: Sarah Palin threw a big rally for Michele Bachmann today, in Minneapolis, where nobody can vote for Michele Bachmann (?). But whatever, if two people were ever made for each other, it's Sarah 'n' Michele.

I've got two things two say about this wonderful event. First, Palin says, "And I knew that [Michele and I] would be buddies when she came up and said we should 'drill here and drill now.' And I said -- and then I replied, 'Drill baby, drill' And then we both said, 'You betcha.'"

And what's so great about this is that it was our beloved Michael Steele, not Sarah Palin, who coined the phrase "Drill baby, drill" in his speech at the Republican National Convention, literally the only thing he has ever said that influenced his fellow Republicans. But now Sarah has it firmly tucked in her incredibly limited (she's still doing the writing-on-the-hand gags!) repertoire, and it belongs to her. Sorry, Michael! Now if you try to use it, you'll look like you're emulating her.

OK, the second thing: what the hell is Sarah wearing? This is important! OMG, is it a black velvet coat? It is:


Sarah? Hello? It's Spring! And honey, seriously, a triple strand of pearls with two three additional necklaces and a clashing gold-tone flag pin? And don't even get me started on those barbed tangles on your wrists! This is an absolutely terrible outfit! So it's clear she's dressing herself again.

And finally, it really is tempting to start a Sarah Palin Hairdo Alert System, because that do has just been all over the place recently.

Oh please, Princess, we need a Sarah hair-do alert!

That's not just black velvet, it's *crushed* black velvet.

Lady Wesley said...

Looks like she's trying to go a little Goth. Will we be reading about Palin-Goth in People next year?

What? No! said...

Oh noz! Sarah's in another "three dicks" picture!
blah blah once, shame on me...

Christopher said...

"And then we both said, "You betcha."" And then they started making out? I mean if ever there was a set up for Cougar Lesbian porn, that was it.

Chillbilly goth MILF retard biatch sez wut?

So she was 20 years old in 1984. Do you think she was a Pat Benatar, a Madonna or Flashdance?

The way too many pearls says Madonna, but the fake tough girl stuff says Benatar.

Madduane said...

Oh, yeah, she's a "hit me with your best shot" kinda girl. You betcha.

Black velvet with Bachmann. Black Leather with McCain. Sarah's going full gestapo on us. How long before she starts wearing skulls and lightning bolts?

It's the devil's vanity. Much as he tries to hide behind pretty faces, he always needs to strut.

Matty Boy said...

There is another possibility, given that she's a small town girl. Sarah might be going for the whole Bonnie Tyler Total Eclipse of the Heart thing. Or maybe I've got the time period wrong and she's trying to be Alanna Myles from 1989, when Black Velvet was the huge hit. I doubt that, because Sarah would have been a mom by then.

This is a lot of speculation on my part, but like Peteykins, all those accessories have just set off alarm bells in my head that something is horribly wrong and I'm trying to figure out exactly what it is.

As for Section 9, it's nice to have a non-anonymous person here giving us the other side, and one who admits to being just as confused as we are as to her fashion sense.

Christopher said...

Also, can I say, since I grew up in the Great Middle West, and have a lot of family there, all that long hair on both Michele and Sarah but also most of the women in the background? Reeks of money. Middle class and lower and have sense-able short hair cuts. Not a single one of my female relatives has hair that goes below the ears.

How long before the new BFF fall out? I give it six months, until one or the other feels she's being upstaged. Then? BAM! It'll be so, so awesome.

Bartman said...

We also need a "flair alert". She wearing some serious junk on or about her person.

Matty Boy said...

As the young people like to say, Bartman FTW.

You'll never become president just wearing the minimum amount of flair!

Lulu Maude said...

Lots of looks going on there. I first thought of Madonna wanna-bes from about a hundred years back... A little something, actually, for every segment of The Base.

Ewww.

I love the idea of a new hair alert system. It just ain't been the same since Condoleeeeeezzzzzza fell off the radar.

Pretty please?

CDP said...

Commenter Frank is right. Accordingly, I suggest a Sarah/Michelle BFF Watch. Rally today, Real Housewives of the Tea Party tomorrow.

Aunt Snow said...

I agree about the potential for a falling out. These two are both too much Mean Girls to put up with being equal to one another.

And Palin - WTF with the outfit? Does she think she's Madonna? Or Ali G.? She's got 3 strands of pearls, 2 chain pendants, a charm bracelet, a flag pin, earrings, and how many bracelets on the other hand?

The jacket - I think it's not only crushed velvet, it's cut crushed velvet.

Princess, we really do need you to monitor her hair. Please do it - your country needs you.

The naughty (with velvet) school marm pony tail with the bump it?
too much.
Am not sure it is just her hair that is the warning flag. It might be the combination of hair & clothes & jewelry that signals the true danger

samael7 said...

I saw it yesterday and didn't comment. But looking at it again today, I just can't let it go.

What is wrong with that lady's hair?

Not Sarah's or Michelles (kinda yawny for both of them -- it's all about the jewelry and bannana-skin jacket). First picture. Woman behind Sarah, on the left (Sarah's right), holding a sign. It's got . . .some sort of bangs, then a bald spot, then what looks like a Regency-era wig.

At first I thought there was another lady behind her. Then I wondered if her head was rising like dough above her brow. But now, I have no idea what the hell I'm seeing, but it makes me feel funny, and not in a good way.

Lulu Maude said...

Gee, Samael 17, maybe Sarah and Michelle can do a little image consulting to raise campaign dollars. Spread The Look among the party faithful.

Toriko said...

Actually, I agree with Bartman. The hairdo alert has been claimed. I think you need a fashion alert for Palin - which could include her hair.

What? No! said...

Maybe get ahead of the curve on this one and focus just on the jewelry (or more generally the flair as Matty Boy noted), this looks like it might be her differentiator; her strategy if you will.

Either that or clamp a meter to her level of disdain. That smug thing she's got going on in picture 1 would see you slapped in gitmo with panties on your head so fast just for viewing a Qur'an on Amazon.

She's gone all emo...or something. Blogger TBogg called her on an outfit recently with the headline, "Tim Gunn Wept." Classic.
