Here Is A Picture Of Sarah Palin Looking Wonderfully Elegant And Refined

That's a spicy meatball!

Robin Givhan, can we get a ruling? What is the most elegant and refined part of Sexy Grandma Sarah Palin’s campaigning ward-robe? The pedal pushers? Those clodhoppers? We see nothing wrong with the Superman tee — it’s playful and very cute, fitting as it does those way bigger jugs she’s got pinned on! We are going to go with the wrap-around sunglasses, to be worn behind the wheel of her monster truck. Nothing says class — or is it “military dictator”? — like wraparound shades.

    1. GunToting[Redacted]

      OT, but funny. I had the Olympics on yesterday (women's indoor volleyball) and heard this great out-of-context quote: "It doesn't matter who is in front of the 6' 4" Hooker…"

        1. Negropolis

          And she is beautiful. Pity about the name, though. Destinee Hooker sounds like a stage name.

    1. kittensdontlie

      Pray that un-american t-shirt is enough to have her deported…at least back to Alaska.

      1. Preferred Customer

        Wow. That's like the cobbler equivalent of goatse. Some things can never be unseen.

    1. tessiee

      Manolo weeps:

      An excerpt which I find on-topic:

      "Manolo says, this is the best sort of midlife crisis, the one in which the person works diligently to improve herself physically and mentally.

      How often do we hear about the lady of the certain age who, determined to grasp one last time at the thorn bush of super sexiness, has spent her efforts on six-inch stripper heels, hootchie mama booty shorts, and Dr. Roberto Rey’s Patented Plastic F-cup Bosoms.

      Ayyyy! Such folly!

      Manolo says, booty shorts do not light the path to personal enlightenment."

      1. Nothingisamiss

        It bothers me on some level that I understand absolutely every reference in this comment.

    2. PsycWench

      It looks like she started out with full-length pants but they shrunk up trying to get away from the bondage shoes.

    3. ChessieNefercat

      Roman gladiators wouldn't have worn those things. Does she not realize she's not 13? What am I saying, everything she says and does seems to come from a mean 13 year old.

  1. Callyson

    Now she'll be the next makeover on What Not to Wear. Can't wait to hear Stacy and Clinton snark on her…

    1. ChessieNefercat

      Idon't know about snark. It might be a case of words fail… open-mouthed stunned horror might be more like it.

    1. SorosBot

      She mixes Peg's class and work ethic with Kelly's smarts and Al's conscience and views on women.

    2. Negropolis

      Peg fuckin' Bundy libel. Peg had more character in her leopard-print blouse than Sarah Palin has in her entire body.

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Cannot. Be. Unseen. (But can be giggled at – damn, some people are even more pathetic than me).

  2. SorosBot

    With the name Steelman, it would make more sense to wear the version of the S worn by the Superman spin-off Steel – but then, he's a black guy.

  3. ChernobylSoup

    Previously on this forum I blamed Satan for girls who wear clodhoppers. Looks like I was right.

    1. GemlikeFlame

      I've spent a lifetime searching for the tenth circle of Inferno, hoping desperately that I wouldn't find it..

      And here it is. I had Sarah pegged for the eighth circle (fraud), but she just managed to define her way into a whole new circle of her own. Tenth circle, I dub thee Palinry, and the 12th deadly sin. Damn you to hell. Also.

  4. aaarrrgh

    damn you, Rebecca Schoenkopf, for reminding me of that woman.

    as a radical leftist, the overwhelming shame of my life is that all i can say about sarah is: i'd hit that.

    oy. i hate myself.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      You'd change your mind once you got an up-close look at her. Or if she spoke. Or if you weren't really drunk.

    2. rickmaci

      Palin. Forget it. Buuuut, that other one, the blond. Maybe a half dozen long necks and little bump and grind dancing and my milfy part might be interested.

      1. HistoriCat

        You'd better listen to her voice first. After all, Palin was Wonkette't GILF before anyone had heard her speak.

  5. BaldarTFlagass

    "to be worn behind the wheel of her monster truck."
    I'm sure that this monster truck also has monster truck nutz.

  6. bravo_sierra

    Nothing about this outfit makes sense. It is possible that Alaska Walmarts only get clothing rejected by the lower 48?

      1. emmelemm

        The used clothes rejected by Goodwill get shipped to Russia (and Africa, natch), then rejected by Russia, then shipped back to Alaska, where they're boughten by Wasilla trailer trash.

    1. One_who_wanders

      My first thought was that it looked like an outtake from "Nailin' Palin II: MILF on the road!"

  7. Baconzgood

    No wonder they McCain gave her so much $ for clothes. Left to dress herself she looks like a Meth head at a Skinny Puppy concert.

      1. Baconzgood

        I've been holding the Skinny Puppy reference in my back pocket for a year now. I'm glad I was finally able to use it.

  8. arihaya

    if Sarah Palin is as ugly and revolting as Roger Ailes not even a single wingnut would care about what she said

  9. Baconzgood

    Now with the 15 year old psudo hipster tee shirt, and the shoes, we tend to over look that ugly fucking belt buckle!

    1. Biff

      And I assume she has her name engraved in the back of her belt, for reasons that should be obvious to all Wonketeers…

      1. Baconzgood

        I'm going with a roller skate wheel or a Lucky Charm's plastic compass she found in the box.

  10. BaldarTFlagass

    I think they're having one of those sex-toy sales parties, and Sarah is giving the "vibrating butterfly" a test drive…

    1. nomadicview

      Oh please, Ru has much better taste than that. After all, he does something that Sarah does even attempt. He looks like a woman.

  11. ChernobylSoup

    Typically when I see a grandma who looks like that, it's when I'm taking a foster child to his/her court-ordered family visitation.

  12. jefdlee

    No wonder the RNC had to spend so much money dressing her in 2008. This is what happens when she's left to her own devices.

      1. gullywompr

        Several meanings:

        1. That person is so sweet for doing such a wonderful thing.
        2. That person, even though refarded, is really trying their best.
        3. That person can bite me.

        Take your pick.

    1. blueflowers

      I find this more insulting than almost anything else written about her. Southern passive aggression for the win!

      1. Biff

        All she's missing is the Mag-Lite for banging on sleeper doors. Or so I've heard. Not that I'm a recovering former trucker, or anything like that…

  13. BarackMyWorld

    In Steelman's TV ad featuring Palin, she manages to cram every single catchphrase she knows into 30 seconds, with enough time for her to say her own name, Steelman's name, and the candidate approval notice somehow. It was like watching EVERY SINGLE OTHER TV APPEARANCE she has ever made, but with the actual candidate's name shoe-horned in Mad-Lib style.

  14. SorosBot

    Looking closer, what the fuck is with that belt? It's super-wide, and has an enormous fucking buckle with some image that I can't really make out on it. What the fuck? Who ever wears a belt with a big ugly buckle like that?

    1. Baconzgood

      I read a lotta Batman as a kid and I never, ever, seen have a roller skate wheel belt buckle on his utility belt.

  15. SayItWithWookies

    The belt buckle really completes the whole truck-stop-hooker ensemble. Although somebody should tell her it was Wonder Woman who wore the bulletproof bracelets, not Superman.

    1. jcinco

      I think it's a crucifix or has a picture of baby jebus on it, strategically placed just above her vajayjay.

    1. sewollef

      "…. Amercia. "

      I'm a little off my game this Monday, so I'll apologise ahead of the slap down.

      Deliberate, right?

  16. coolhandnuke

    Gentleman, Steelman and the Woman of Steal on stage two. Put your hands together, get out your wallets and give it up for these fine ladies.

  17. ElPinche

    Unseen by the naked eye, there is a methlab in each of her fuckme high heels.

    She does realize that Superman is big ole liberal , right?

    1. BerkeleyBear

      But skinny shit, which is all that matters. Right, Bristol? Never mind, put your nose back in the feedbag.

  18. Carabella1

    T-shirt – Walmart
    Mom capris – Wasilla rummage sale
    Combat gladiator shoes – Payless
    Bugeye aviator sunglasses – some random Crackerbarrel
    Statement – trailer trash… the true patriots

  19. CountryClubJihadi

    Pretty sure that's the same crucifix belt buckle she's been wearing lately. She looks like TJ Maxx and Jesus threw up on her.

  20. Chet Kincaid_

    What I dislike most is her dumb rabbit face, which she has generously bequeathed to her offspring. The homely gene is so strong that it even cancels out Tawd's mild attractiveness. The no-ass-havin' is a dealbreaker, also.

  21. Blueb4sinrise

    I reckon that Mizzou primary is today, so we'll know tonight whether …………….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    1. PubOption

      Sorry guys, It's tomorrow. So one more day of suffering political ads on TV, and one more day of not knowing which teatard-pandering Republican will get the nomination.

  22. SheriffRoscoe

    Friday evening flight from LAX to Vegas. I see hooches like that all the time. Girl's gotta make that money, y'all.

  23. hagajim

    Her new clothing line – "Hillbilly Cotoure" – Yes and I spelled Coutore the way Sarah wants it speeled.

    1. CthuNHu

      The blonde? Yeah, I'd hi-… — uh, I'd be willing to engage in, uh, civil discourse with that pleasant lady over a cup of tea, where "cup of tea" may or may not mean "mattress".

      The ridiculous dime-store Made-in-China knockoff brand Mighty Meth Anger Grifter action figure on the left? Not so much.

      1. CthuNHu

        Ugh. Just spent five minutes at Ms. Steelman's website.

        I hereby retract and disavow any and all attraction to this odious vulgarian.

        Her rancid devotion to Tea Partyist postulates and argumentation is not my cup of tea.

  24. Sacanagem

    She looks….skinny. Like, crystal meth/eating disorder skinny. (Besides the tragic ensemble)

    I wonder what Moose Lady's followers would say if they found out that their hard-earned pennies were going up her nose.

    1. timbo71351

      They wouldn't give a fuck. They would figure it was just the liberal media making up shit, or Michelle Obama does dope too and you never hear about that, or that she's a "Christian" so it's OK. Hell, if they weren't giving that money to Snow Snooki, they would be sending it to a televangelist, or a Nigerian e-mail scam or to someone running a pigeon drop in the Walmart parking lot

  25. Billmatic

    It's amazing how much shoes do to change the outfit, if she was wearing Chucks we'd all be endeared by her surprising dorky chic.

    1. tessiee

      "Endeared" is perhaps asking a bit much — but yes, you're right, chucks would be perfect with that outfit.

  26. Comrade Wingtardd

    That beltbuckle looks like she carved up a croc and taped it to a belt. And why is she leaning so awkwardly forward? Hasn't she learned to walk with those ta-tas yet? No, because they're brand new! Has she had breast implant surgery recently? I think this is proof.

    The beige belt and black capri jeans are what really pushes this over the top, though.

  27. Fred_Wertham_Jr

    The meth-skinniness and the bolt-ons would indicate that Sarah is getting ready for her tasteful Playboy spread. Hugh Hefner probably thinks she looks great.

  28. widestanceromance

    Now, there's an outfit that doesn't quit halfway through.

    I swear, I smelled something bad when I scrolled her off the screen very fast.

  29. larrykat

    I believe her belt buckle is actually a secret Knights Templar decoder ring… used to decipher her messages from God.

  30. tessiee

    Well, there's the witch and the wardrobe.
    I suppose if I were foolish enough to turn the sound on, I'd hear the lyin'.

    1. Baconzgood


  31. DahBoner

    Is this another aging Stripper/Pornstar endorsement for Romney?

    It's so hard to keep up with the smut these days…

  32. Eve8Apples

    And this kids is why you should never back to school shop at an interstate truck shop after cooking up a fresh supply of meth.

  33. An_Outhouse

    The shoes say "Fuck Me!!" but the pants scream "I just beat up a 12 year old and stole his pants".

  34. Jeri 2.0

    Does nobody else see at least 6 toes poking out of the nearest shoe? I must admit it's somewhat of a relief that it's not a cloven hoof, but still.

  35. Dildeaux

    "So Im blowin this guy in the front seat of his Peterbuilt and I look in the sleeping compartment and BAM, I lock my eyeballs on these goddamn shoes! Arent they wonderful? Traded head for heels. I won, didnt I?"

    1. jcinco

      well if the dumb bitch would have taken the clothes she ripped off from the RNC to the dry cleaners instead of wadding them up in the back of her closet she wouldn't have to wear clothes from Hot Topic. Oh and it appears when she goes to Hot Topic she drops in at Claire's for her accessories..just like any 14 year old mall rat.

      1. LakeLucilleLoon

        I had to look up Hot Topic; we don't have them here in AK. I guess that she could shop there now, as a size 0!! Not sure what Claires is either but google tells me that they have very cheap and lowly priced accessories and jewelry…your comment has been a kind of education for me! I guess if I had children, or knew any children I'd know these things, but I'm kind of out of the loop with Sarah Palin/Teen Fashion…there was no Hot Topic or Claires type stores during my youth. Everything we ever got was shipped twice per year from Land's End catalogue, autumn and spring, that's it, you picked out what you needed for school and for summer break and it came in the mail and you made it work. It wasn't always fashionable but that's all we got.

  36. Living in Joy

    I'm thinkin' that she needs the "S" on her shirt so she knows it's hers, kind of like days of the week underwear which I am sure she wears (thong addition doncha know cause she's hot). Probably Willow has a "W" and Bristol has a "B" which I am sure that Willow thinks is appropriate for her big sister.

  37. owhatever

    Sorry, but Brisket easily out-trashes her mother. Nailin' Palin Jr. is already in production.

  38. rocktonsam

    Willow is twating… " my bitch mom stole my clodhopper shoes and my favorite blow job t-shirt." probably

  39. litbrit

    Oh my…where to begin? First, those platform sandals. There is no earthly reason someone with Mrs. Palin's millions can't afford tasteful, classy shoes. Which means she's wearing those hideous monstrosities because she LIKES them and thinks they look awesome. ::shudder:: Second, I don't care how slim you are, when you're at or near fifty, wearing what appears to be yanked from your teenager daughter's Goodwill pile just comes off kind of desperate-looking and weird. Third, the French are right: at a certain age, a woman must choose between her face and her derriere. Lose too much weight in the body, and your face and neck will take on all the scrawny charm of a barnyard chicken during a drought. As dreadful as I found Mrs. Palin's politics when she burst onto the scene in '08, I couldn't deny that she was very pretty, because she was. It's not the four years that have robbed her face of its pleasant lines and sparkle; it's a deep meanness, along with an obvious starvation regime. And possibly something quite sinister–speed or similar. (I will add that I'd be just as sad abd critical if a handsome-but-airheaded male politician turned up looking this…depleted.)

  40. SenileAgitation

    What a mess. I can't stop looking, so many wrongs strung together, it's the wardrobe equivalent of her speech: inconsistent, clumsy, earnest, pointlessly provocative, and careless. I can't wait for the Palin Collection at Target.

  41. OldRedneck

    I'm from East Tennessee and lived several years in West Virginia. I know a LOT of trailer trash wimmin, almost married one. Not one of them would be caught dead looking like either one of these ho's.

  42. OldRedneck

    Now I know where I've seen these two before — they were lot lizards servicing truckers at the I-10 Truck Stop south of Tucson.

  43. Negropolis

    Wait, is Ms. Palin going to a political rally, or is she going clubbing?

    You know, usually you could criticize this as sexist, but in this case, what she is wearing is inappropriate to the circumstance and it has nothing to do with her being a woman.

  44. insidebeltway

    The shoes are Bristol's freebies from Candies. The belt buckle has a giant red cross on it.

  45. ttommyunger

    Nothing wrong with hitting fifty, but hitting fifty and trying to look fifteen; definitely soft-on inducing.

  46. BlueJoubert

    She's said over and over she buys her clothes at consignment shops. Well, obviously, but the consignment shops are at the end of a skin head campout. What a tramp. Trailer trash is far too classy for her.

  47. thurufally

    I thought this was the media rollout of the "Sarah Steelman" vibrator that Palin's endorsing..

    I ran a needle exchange program for almost 25 years.
    That's how my meth clients looked before their teeth fell out.
    I'm serious, the woman, who was once sexy…
    at least until you looked in her fanatically ignorant eyes…
    Now looks seriously unhealthy.
