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.
Those who fund the tea party? You mean like 20% of America?
http://biggovernment.com/wthuston/2010/ … arty-lies/
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?
At least that's proved to be a positive trend and the American people have had great returns in terms of the economy, health care and a united nation.
80% is now 100% . You never cease to amaze me. It's a bit like god and the fishes.
Hey Hollie, Ladylove loves to pass along distortion and misinformation, if you've not noticed.
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.
Why did this suddenly turn into a liberal/conservative forum? That had nothing to do with my question.
You asked why do people feel that sarah palin is hot. I gave my answer. You're right though it should not have developed into party donations. I apologize, profusely, grovel, grovel
Palin is hot as long as she dosen't talk.
You got it right Paul and most of the time she gets it wrong
Maybe because your question wasn't interesting enough? Who knows.
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'.
You asked for thoughts, those were mine and now you're going to complain?
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?
If you had picked someone other than Sarah Palin it may have avoided the political pit falls of Hubpages Forums.
If she is good enough for Glen Rice and the rest of the NBA, then Palin is good enough for me!
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!
Seriously, I do see her as a bit of a joke.
You think Palin is hot? Now be honest, what have you taken, and is it legal?
Actually, I do think she is kinda hot. But I have a thing for updos and glasses.
If you think America has hot female politicians, you will not be able to contain yourself if you could see Britain's Ann Widdecombe.
Manly men prefer Carla Bruni
Censorship rears its ugly head!
Does anyone else find this woman a little anorexic?
How about Yulia Tymoshenko instead?
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)
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."
CoolDads got a thing .......hes got a thing for Janet Nepolitano. No offence but are you Gay , Palins a nice looker. Need glasses?
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 ). 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". 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... )
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).
(Clinton may not be the most photogenic person in the world, but I think she can be attractive much of the time. Then again, she became a lawyer when she was young - not a beauty-pageant enter-er.)
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!
Please tell us more about Sarah SUBSTANCE
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
Petra, come on now be nice , Shes pretty , shes proportionate , Why are women so negative on her , Not that I would vot for her .?
People are still re-hashing the "is Palin hot" thing on here???
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". (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.

Is it genetic programming, charisma or highly developed “people skills” that make some people human magnets and other people human repellants?
