Are You Down With Sarah Palin's Toe Polish?

Nobody knows what the heck Sarah Palin is thinking. While the Fox News contributor and bus tour leader has gotten back on her custom Greyhound recently, just happening to make a stop in Iowa while that whole Straw Poll thingee was going on, she still has not made any announcement about her possible presidential intentions.

But a paparazzi photo of the former half-term Alaska governor's toes managed to get more buzz than candidate Herman Cain did at the event, with Andrew Sullivan weighing in on her high couture pedicure on The Daily Beast. Palin sported the black polish with white polka dots look at the Iowa State Fair on Friday (August 12) and Sullivan reminded readers that it was Sarah herself who once said, "We are so desperate in Alaska for any semblance of glamour and culture."

What was the context? A story from 1996 that mention the then commercial fisherwoman lying to her husband, Todd, about driving down to Anchorage to shop at Costco, and instead making a beeline to J.C. Penney to gawk at the former Mrs. Donald Trump, Ivana, who was there for a cosmetics department appearance.

The latest polish push came a month after Palin wore some open-toe sandals at an Autism fundraiser in New York, sporting red nails overlaid with white dots.

A mom blogger on dishy site The Stir went further in criticizing the fashion faux pas, saying the photos were proof Palin won't/shouldn't run. Why?

1) "Open toed sandals are an ideal choice for any woman NOT running for president," because they are sexy and not appropriate for corporate jobs.

2) She has dry skin around her toenails, which is a sign she needs a pedicure, stat. "I don't know who does her toes, but with what she spend [sic] on every other aspect of her wardrobe, one might think she could afford an aesthetician who removes the dead skin.

3) "Polka. Dot. Toes. Fun? Maybe. If you are 16. But at her age and position in life, it is just embarrassing."

    have no idea what you mean by are you down? in spirit? worried? and why would this be worthy of writing a blog on the subject?? Sarah is very attractive in every way and I can't believe you are talking about the dead skin on her toes!!! I guess I would rather have dead skin on my toes than dead cells between my ears like those who choose this as a topic of discussion. You people can't get over this woman who is so popular with the people because she speaks truth and because she is something most of you will never be, a Patriot. and a real down to earth person ..get a life for crying out loud.

    Oh for crying out loud, it's just toenail polish. I don't care for Sarah Palin as a politician, but come on. It's a little bit of paint on her toes and completely irrelevant to anything. And honestly I think they are cute. Once again, these are just toes, people. T-O-E-S.

    Sarah is cool!! and smart and lots of other things her detractors are obviously afraid of.

    I think it's Beautiful, Sexy, Fashionable and is the mark of a Well Groomed Woman who takes Care of Herself and knopw how to make Herself look presentable.
    If people were not so obsessed with Hate, taught to them by Hyper Liberals, Traitors, the NSDPA and Children like Al Gore, they would look at Sarah Palin as the WONDERFUL Wife, Mother and Human Being that She is.
  • marc 2011/09/22 04:23:09
    not big deal
  • Freebird 2011/08/30 06:08:45
    Love em and I think Sarah has been quite a trendsetter.
  • TheMartian 2011/08/26 01:53:21
    Are people actually still taking her seriously?

    In any way? Really? Still?
  • JustOneAmongPlenty 2011/08/19 15:09:35
    ...Why does this question even exist? A question about toe polish? really?
  • JuliaLeigh711 2011/08/19 10:16:35
    She Puts her Foot in her Mouth so Often. Hard to believe she kept those toes out for that long. Silly stuff, just like she is. A Silly Woman - Am I'm about Girl power. Not Her's.

    She has NEVER put Her Foot in Her Mouth. You are just a Hate Monger who has NEVER Respected Her or listened to Her and tried to understand what is going on.

    All political drama and fashion fascism aside, Palin is a human being. If she wants to paint her toenails to look exactly like cat-poop, I'm down with it.

    By the way... why are people interested in her toenails? WTF?

    I like it. At least she takes care of her feet. All to often, I see women wearing sandals and their feet look like something out of the dinosaur age. I find that women who care for their feet also take care of the rest of themselves pretty well too. Even some who might not look like supermodels, some who are over weight, and the like. If they don't care for their feet, they don't take care of their bodies in other areas too.
  • wallygator64 2011/08/17 15:01:10
    Sarah Palin is nothing but an opportonist,anytime,anyplace she can get her name and picture in the paper or news she does.Like bush #2 she is unqualified to run this country,and less qualified to run anything but a vacuum cleaner
  • Gwen 2011/08/17 14:49:30
    toe nail polish?....proof that someone shouldn't run?!?!?.....

    that kind of comment is only proof that the person making that kind of comment shouldn't vote if this is what worries them....
  • lucky 2011/08/17 14:30:42
    Geez, there are some real shallow people in this world and frankly they disgust me.
  • wtw 2011/08/17 14:12:30
    If she likes it, I am fine with it!

    Anything that covers more of Sarah Palin is good by me. I hope wet blankets become her next fashion goal and it covers her as well as muffles her.
