Sarah Palin to put out lipstick line? Say it isn't so!
Advertisements [?]
I don't make them up... I just report them.. :)

_________________________________________________________________________________________ /

Because wonders never cease, yesterday, the New York Post reported that Sarah Palin's agents are seeking a beauty endorsement deal and pitching cosmetic companies to capitalize on the punchline to a joke she made during her speech at last year's Republican National Convention (she asked, "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull?" Answer: "Lipstick.")

Assuming this news is true, let's consider what it means. Sarah Palin is a major figure on the national political scene and--whether you like the idea or not-- a serious contender for the 2012 Republican nomination. By entering the celebrity makeup racket, she'd be relegating herself to a space usually reserved for truly fluffy, low-talent shills, the Jessica Simpsons of the world, the Paris Hiltons, your spare Olsen twin. It seems impossible that anyone thinks this is an appropriate arena for a woman who aspires to be the leader of the United States.
