    I blame Hilary Clinton for this. Hilary created the benchmark for political female "hotness" or "not-so-hotness".  And when Palin crashed the scene, everyone suddenly thought she was a supermodel.  Thanks Hilary.
    I have a sneaking suspicion that under Palin's pants suits, there is some funkiness happening.

    I understand this is incredibly sexist and probably doesn't even matter, but I had to ask.
    What are your thoughts?

      I think Jackie Kennedy was attractive. Hillary was never very fashionable. Palin is quite attractive. I believe in her younger days she competed in pagents. I think its one reason why liberals hate her. They prefer women like Hillary, or Romer, or Big Sis Napolatano.  Lol

        And the one reason why those who fund the Tea Party think she may be more valuable than their sharpest accountant.

              20% are libs 40% are conservatives and 40% are moderates that for the mist part lean right. That's America and that's how America has been for decades.

                Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure you'd relish that opportunity, but how did you come by this information. I thought a judge overruled Obamas application for complete transparency regarding donations. LALO do you have indider information?

                  Its from a gallup poll on how Americans identify politically that's done every year.

                    I've noticed. But interestingly, and I know this is off topic, but LL states that 'she debates in forums so she can better understand her own arguments'

                    When she eventually gets there I'm hoping she can help the rest of us understand them too. lol

                Most of the time, how about ALL the time? smile To be fully honest, isn't she a major turn-off for women? According to the new anti-Palin book that just came out, ot's pointed out that her and her husband are a couple psychopaths.

          Because for some certain posters here, that's how they see their world. Sad but true.

          As far as your thread topic, I never understood why people thought she was hot. But then again, there is 'relative hotness'. lol

            Not complaining, just asking a question.  No matter what the thread topic, you seem to be a bit obsessed with liberals.  Just my opinion.

          Sarah Palin walks into a bar and the bar tenders says... so if you win, what will  you do about Iran?  Sarah says Don't you mean I Run?   THe bartender says no I mean Iraq... Sarah looks down and says.... do you like them?

        Turns out that book is nothing but lies and the author admits as.much in an email obtained by the media. But you libs will keep repeating the lies until you're all convinced they're truth. The lib echo chamber is in full swing! No wonder you guys are so wrong about everything all the time!

      I don't think she's hot.  She's mildly attractive, then she speaks and the mildness turns to blah.

      Not much hotter than an adult woman who helps liberate her country, founds a political bloc and runs a successful business.(Other than the liberate her country - that sounds a little like Palin)

        Yes, she does. She's put on a few pounds (and clothes) since becoming first lady of France. (She didn' look anorexic at all in the photo that the HP morality police deleted.)

    I think comedienne Lisa Lampanelli said it best.

    (I'm paraphrasing) "for a politician, like compared to Hillary Clinton, she might be an 8. But compared to someone like Angelina Jolie, she's a deuce at best."

    I'd agree with cooldad about Palin.  I don't get the "hot thing" either.  She's attractive enough, compared to unattractive people (although I do think she could stand an updating  lol ).  I don't know...  I'm a woman, so I may not be a good judge of "hot", but Palin's far from my idea of "hot".  roll  If there has to be the sexist thing of "who's hot" going on, why not compare Palin to some women who aren't in national politics and instead compare Palin to, say, actresses of her own age.  That might add some perspective...  hmm )

    Other than that, though, it's really not fair to compare the 60-plus Hilary to late-40's Palin.  (and it's not fair to post a really bad picture of her either - not that I'm a big Hilary Clinton fan).

    What I like about Palin compared to Clinton is she is self made ! Niether Daddy's money nor the political 'system' did anything to  create her . The American woman when given the chance to further thier cause , thier generation of womans lib, is more concerned with image and emotion than substance and action in politics Not that man is any better !!! The idiousy of America right now is that we have turned the presidential race into the American idol! Hence the mess we are in now!!! Those who don't like Palin are threatened by the strenth of a woman , particularly true among the loudest of voices!

        ahorseback,
        I don't have a problem with her looks (in fact I think she is good looking, but rather "provincial" with that hairdo of decades ago).
        I have a big problem with the SUBSTANCE you said she has and that is what I would like you to elaborate on. As far as I can tell she is airheaded, painfully ignorant and overly opportunistic

      People are still re-hashing the "is Palin hot" thing on here???   big_smile   

      If it's only women who are "so negative on her" it's probably because they aren't paying a shred of attention to whether she's attractive or not and instead just plain don't think she's high-public-office material (whatsoever).  Women don't get who's "proportionate".   hmm  (Also, there are people who believe that women can see through "phony-and-shallow" better than a lot of men can.  There could be some of that type of thing going on too.)

    I'm not a fan of Sarah Palin, but I kind of like her individualism and style, and I think she's got a great figure.

    Most politicians would sooner die than wear eyeglasses.  This makes Palin unique, I think.  I suspect Palin is very nearsighted, but gave up on contact lenses some time back.  I wear glasses myself, and I enjoy the fact that Palin has made some types of eyewear fashionable.

    1. Petra Vlah profile image59

      Nearsighted she is for sure in more ways than one. Is she trying to look more of an intellectual by wearing eyeglasses? Can she see Russia better?
