Sexy Sarah Palin?

I just got my new pair of eyeglasses. The old one has been with me for about 5 years: the lenses’ protective coating has been peeled off, the Gucci logo on the right side is missing, but so far I didn’t feel that I had to change my glasses since I’m wearing contact lenses more and only put my glasses on back before bed time.

But six months after my last trip to the optician, they sent me a letter, saying that since I’m a regular contact lenses user, I have to go back there to ensure my eyes are healthy. The optician, after performing several checks on my eyes claimed they are a bit dry, so she suggests me not to wear my contacts for more than 12 hours per day, especially with the type of coloured lenses I bought from Indonesia. That’s when I decided to wear my glasses more often.

Hence the new glasses.

Mister husband saw me wearing the new glasses when he went home and found me sitting nicely on the sofa, watching TV.

After complementing my new glasses and how cute I look with them, he then said, “You look like Sarah Palin.”

I beg your pardon?

He saw my expression changed, and quickly said that what he meant was that I looked sexy. And the lookie-likey was meant to be a compliment. Because Sarah Palin is sexy.


He wondered why I didn’t look happy with the compliment he gave. Well, darling, I guess:

  1. First, because she’s much older than me, almost 11 years older! No woman likes to be compared with older women, even if they are Sophia Loren or Brigitte Bardot. Or your own mother (I’ve got that a lot, people approach us and say we really look similar {thank you}, and she looks more like my sister than my mother {mum: delighted. me: but she’s 22 years older than me!!}).
  2. Second, it’s not common to compare your spouse’s look with a politician’s. Celebrity, yes (but please refer to number 1 before choosingย  someone as a comparison point. Angelina Jolie is most welcome). But politician, no.
  3. Third, my glasses are different from hers (see the very first picture? I’ve got exactly the same pair as the advert).
  4. Last but not least, I don’t think Sarah Palin is sexy. Not in a million years.

But she won Miss Alaska Pageant, he said (she actually finished the third). Ergo, she’s sexy.

Hmm. Well maybe, 20 years ago. But today she looks like a sweet, regular suburban soccer mom. Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s pretty. But not sexy.

Do you think she is sexy?

Post Script 10 October 2008: Apparently a blogbuddy wrote a very similar post in her blog about the same time I posted this entry. Read about her being compared to Sarah Palin’s voice here.


  1. wakakakaka momennya pas dengan postingannya dini ๐Ÿ˜›

    the writers last blog post..Technical problems

  2. Yes I just read Dini’s post. Should introduce her caller to my husband, they have a thing in common ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. I think she is very attractive :)

    Elyanis last blog post..Say it with flowers

  4. Even before election day mrs Palin is doing a lot of harm obviously.

    But I don’t think you should be upset by the comparison. Of course you and I know Sarah P. isn’t sexy at all (personally I think she can cure men from serious sex addictions), but that is inconsequential. Because if your husband thinks she is sexy, his comparison is just away of saying you are terrific.

    (Btw: I have my doubts about your opinion on the age thing. I would not bother about being compared to a gorgeous older person. At least that’s better than with ugly peers or brainless youngsters).

  5. kutu loncat says:

    pretty maybe yes, sexy not at all!

    so nope for me…

  6. Hahaha…Sarah Palin is pretty, but what the hell is she doing there? If McCain dies, she will be the president. Aren’t Americans aware of that? She couldn’t even run a family!

    parvitas last blog post..Tears (From the book โ€˜Yesterday I Criedโ€™ by Iyanla Vanzant)

  7. Nit … maybe you should put pictures of Sarah Palin next to yours to convince everybody that you don’t look similar at all heheheheheh *kabur*.
    Eh ini emang janjian or kebetulan sih entrinya bisa sama dengan diny?

  8. Elyani: is it a polite way of saying she’s not sexy? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Colson: I think I’m more disturbed with the fact that my husband thinks Palin is sexy! He says the same thing about Angelina Jolie and I totally agree but Palin? I don’t get that! About being compared to older person, I do mind if the comparison is in physical aspect. I guess now I’ve reached the age where women start to lie or start celebrating the same age every year.

    Kutuloncat: thank you!!

    Parvita: we should send Palin a TV so she could have some thing to do rather than playing with her husband and produces kids LOL

    Santi: no gak janjian sama Diny. This post has been in my draft since early this week but hadn’t been able to finish it until today. I’m actually glad that Diny was not happy either to be compared with SP LOL

  9. Anita… Palin is so much better looking than say… Megawati? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I think she looks great for her age. Those glasses of hers certainly do make her look smarthish. You know, the white -lab-coat-splicing-some-genes kind of sexy. :)

  10. I reckon Sarah Palin looks kinda dowdy.

    Maybe your hubby has a thing for sexy librarians with the whole glasses thing. Not NECESSARILY Sarah Palin but he just couldn’t get the right terms out – instead of saying sexy librarian, he thought of Sarah Palin, which was understandable since she was the topic everyone’s been talking about.

    Why not dress up as one (sexy librarian of course, not Palin), with fish-net stockings, knee-length A-line skirt, high-collared long sleeved shirts that followed the curve of your body, have your hair piled up messily on top of your head and wear the glasses.


  11. no no no. imho, nggak sexy si SP itu. di lingkungan temen2, kami memanggilnya dengan tinky winky. :) ini karena winking-annya yang amboy geboy itu. ๐Ÿ˜€

    sorry telat ya nit, mohon maap lahir dan batin. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    fitri mohans last blog post..Sahdan

  12. Katadia: actually my mum has a friend who really looks like Megawati (minus the mole) so every Independence Day’s celebration she’s performing in operetta as Megawati.

    Therry: errr… is that what you’re picturing me in your head? LOL

    Fitri: lama tak jumpa, minal aidin wal faizin juga. I didn’t know she has a certain ‘winking’! What does it look like?

  13. Some men consider her sexy. Extremely sexy, indeed, that there exists Sarah Palin sex dolls… Hahaha…

    bleus last blog post..Appreciating and understanding others

  14. Bleu, that is…. just… wrong. SP sex dolls??? OMG!

  15. @FW:

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

  16. she’s a milf – it’s a whole different league of sexy.

    there’s an entire article on Slate about it, but can’t find the link now. you should put up the picture so we could decide for ourselves.

    treespotters last blog post..on WDP (revised)

  17. I want a husband that would compare me to a politician! I am THAT desperate to feel like I belong in what I’m majoring in the Uni (International Relations, that is). Look at the bright side, if he sees Sarah Palin sexy then you really should be thankful.. Because then, you’d be like SUPER SEXY. lol

  18. Tree: all I can say is that I’m far from Tinay Fey or Sarah Palin ๐Ÿ˜›
    Yoanita: still, I don’t want to be compared with someone who’s over a decade older than me…

  19. she’s not sexy now, I don’t know 20 years ago when she won miss pageant. but she’s undoubtedly beautiful for person of that age. I like when she winks. ๐Ÿ˜† some Japanese are just crazy of her hair and start modifying their hair like Palin’s. I think in America the same thing happened.

  20. Yuki: oh no, and I thought Amy Winehouse’s beehive is bad enough. Now Sarah Palin’s hair?

  21. Amy’s beehive ๐Ÿ˜† is hideous, yes I agree with that, but found nothing’s wrong with Palin’s. ๐Ÿ˜€
