“Hair, of course, is never just about the hair.”

This is a quote from a piece about Mrs. P in the New York Times. I couldn’t agree more.

Surely your hair says something about how you perceive yourself and how you want to be perceived. Personally, I never liked to wear my hair up, because it would send the message that I was “trying.” I didn’t want to be thought of that way. Trying was okay if you succeeded, but trying was very sad if you failed.

Now, of course, I feel differently, thanks to Amy Winehouse. Wearing my hair in a beehive, I am making a whole new statement. I am saying, “Look! I’m not afraid of looking goofy! I won’t go to rehab, either!” It is empowering, not “trying.”

I know EXACTLY what that moron Palin is saying with her hair, and so do you! She is saying: “I could take this hair down and give you a lap dance, IF I FELT LIKE IT!” And every man with eyes in his head can read her message loud and clear.   You know who else hears it? Wig Salon.com.

Sadly, they don’t offer the Sarah Palin Style wig in brown with gold highlights, but they recommend trying it in Ginger Brown to get her look.

I know you’re getting sick of this subject, but try to hang on. Read this, I’m begging you, before you read anything else. If it doesn’t stir you to join Pap Smear or to some better form of political activism, you are beyond the prayers of Sister Wolf.

    A pole dancing pig with lipstick! Oink baby!

  2. enc says:

    I wonder how many Palins will be zombify-ing the streets this Halloween?

    Now that would be the ultimate nightmare.

  3. Skye says:

    Eek enc – BRAINS! I want to eat your BRAINS! Because I’m sadly lacking in BRAINS of my own. Yummy, yummy BRAINS!

    SW, I was too scared to click on that link to some more scary Palin-related info, this whole not being able to vote in the US election thing is really getting my frustration meter overloaded.

  4. annemarie says:

    oh Skye, I KNOW! I can’t vote either!
    But look! Look! PAP is not alone! This seems to be a cleaner version:

    I read that article with delight/disdain/disgust as soon as it came out. The Washington Post had a good one last week, too–about how she paid herself per diem for over 300 days of travel when she was, in fact, not traveling. She’s a lying whore. She never stopped being the bully queen bee from 8th grade.

    You know, kudos to US Weekly (which I’ve taken to calling United States Weekly) for their expose on the rancid whore last week. I’m subscribing! And fuck People Magazine for their pandering bullshit: “Meet the McCains!” this week.

  6. Bex says:

    I used to just dislike her but now hate her as much as you do SW.

  7. Ok I’m not getting sick of it every time I read the PAP Smear issues it gives me hope – why even the BBC and British press aren’t doing enough to ridicule and besmirch the freaking woman. I don’t get why women will vote for her because she’s female.
    Keep up the good work and the best up do I’ve ever seen was a picture of Dusty Springfield – now she could do beehives and all manner of hair things.
    Isn’t Mrs McCain rehab material?

  8. David Duff says:

    I like this bit which was obviously squeezed through clenched teeth – er, if that’s quite the right metaphor:

    “Still, Ms. Palin has many supporters. As a two-term mayor she paved roads and built an ice rink, and as governor she has pushed through higher taxes on the oil companies that dominate one-third of the state’s economy. She stirs deep emotions. In Wasilla, many residents display unflagging affection, cheering “our Sarah” and hissing at her critics.”

    Anyway, keep up the good work, boys and girls, because the more you slag her off, the more vitriol you pour over her blameless, pretty, little head, the more right-wing Democrats will desert your party, the more matrons of America will feel sorry for her and the more ‘undecideds’ will recoil from your hatred and vote the GOP ticket. Not smart, People!

    Anyway, I don’t why I’m interfering, I’ve got enough problems over here with a one-eyed, half-brained, Jock moron in charge of my poor long-suffering country!

    Until recently, I wore my hair up (in chopsticks) nearly every day. Is it a coincidence that I chopped it all off a couple of weeks before the world knew about SP? Or did I sense something in the wind? My hair now says “I want to be perceived as a Fraggle!” And living in a cave is starting to sound like a good idea…

  10. annemarie says:

    haha! funny video honeypants!


    Sarah Palin’s stupidity is frightening. Average stupidness is fine, but when you’re SO STUPID that you don’t actually even KNOW you’re stupid, things can get very fucked up indeed.
    First of all, smart people offend you. you think there’s something a bit “off” about them. Those smart asses, they just don’t get it.
    Then there are the delusions of grandeur. You think you can be the next Vice President. Or even President if he croaks it. Or you write a right-wing blog that you think is oh-so-important. You think you’re well-traveled because you’ve been to Canada and Mexico. You think meeting traveling salesmen is the same as meeting foreign officials. You want to ban books you’ve never read. Etc.
    Finally, there is the SMUGNESS of stupidity. Oh, it is so loathsome. Why are stupid people always so bloody smug?
    Why don’t they just shut the fuck up and go away? Why do they get to be the President of the United States? Why is it that only deeply intelligent and sensitive people get extremely depressed and commit suicide and not the stupids? Godammit, I am UPSET about David Foster Wallace! And I’m blaming Sarah Palin for his death! I don’t care if that’s stupid! I’m only average stupid! I’m only capable of limited damage! Damn her! DAMN HER AND HER LACK OF BRAINAGE!

  11. To hell with all of youse. Who the hell is gonna keep my moose moccasin machinery down at the plant oiled if not the evanescent Miss P? Not only is she supplying the moose, she’s pumping out the oil too! And all your whining isn’t going to change a goddamn thing. Hundreds of people going to vote for her, and you’re never going to change their minds.

    (Seriously though annemarie, don’t worry about the lack of brainage. From what I’m reading, she doesn’t even have anchorage. heh.)

  12. Sister Wolf says:

    Gea, annemarie, honeypants, Echinadagirl, and Nick – thank you for your links!!!!!

    David – I’m not taking this bait. In your view, Democrats are doomed if they react and doomed if they don’t. We are not “playing into their hands” by expressing honest and geniune outrage at John McCain’s shameless ploy of picking a moron fundamentalist for his running mate. Her qualifications are laughable. Consider yourself lucky that she can’t “see England” from her backyard, or she might decide to drop bombs on you.

  13. Sister Wolf says:

    annemarie – I’m so sorry about David Foster Wallace. I blame her as well. Not surprisingly, Patrick is also mourning the loss of DFW. xo

  14. Imelda Matt says:

    I’ll concede the rats to AM

    Boy that article was terrifying (and not just because it was 5 pages long), any PAP legal business I need to take care of, palms to grease, people to silence, knee’s to cap???

  15. stella-mayfair says:

    i am afraid right now. what if that palin woman does become vice president of the US? people here in germany never ever would have thought that america might re-elect george w. bush…
    it is terrifying to me to think of women giving their vote to a dumb, anti-feminist, anti-environmentalist self proclaimed “hockey mom” with a gun fetish. where is this world heading?

  16. Sal says:

    Groooooan. This upsets me to the point of speechlessness.

  17. OMGGMAB says:

    I’m not speecheless, I’m screaming my f’n head off. What a migraine! Hope it subsides on 11-4-08!!

    Meanwhile, I am gaining some hope from the fact that some US state governors are selling parts of the state to foreign entities. Please, I’d like to be an Australian now! What are the requirements? I can see a map of Aussies from my National Geographic – does that count? And they sound the kewlest ever when speaking – I want to be kewl too!

  18. OMGGMAB says:

    By the way, Sarah is in no way kewl. She’s just COLD!

  19. this is an extremely accurate dissection of subliminal hair messages.

    the beehive is only good when worn by sister wolf. In your effing ironic way.

    I too wear my hair in an ironic fashion. The message my hair sends out (along with my haggard face) is: I was up late last night pretending to do assignments because i was too guilty to go to sleep when actually I was eating corn crackers and listening to abba. As a result I am balding.
