OMG, Sarah Palin turned up in Missouri to stump for Sarah Steelman looking like this.
And Todd looked like this.
And together they looked like this.
Update: I managed to get a few screen grabs.
This is for Gary P Jackson – I give you the original boobs.
This is what Wonkette had to say about Sarah’s style.
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.
Now Gawker is getting in on the action:
No, no, no.
Where to begin.
First of all, the shoes. You’ve already decided to go loud with the Superman shirt. You can’t pair it with these… these Chinese bondage wedges. They look like what a hooker would wear if she wanted to wear Skechers Shape Ups. And then the belt buckle! My God, THAT BELT BUCKLE! Can I open it up and find gumdrops inside? If that’s a chastity belt, the chastity belt failed to do its job, because you look like you just got railed in the back of a multiplex. What were you thinking? It just looks so cheap. VERY CHEAP. And the cut of the Superman shirt is doing her no favors. She may as well put a bulls-eye on her sternum. The whole thing is just… I feel like my eyeballs are being drawn and quartered.
You know, there are some elements here that could be salvaged. I mean, I LOVE the playfulness of the Superman logo. That’s fun! That could be fun! But then you have these Redneck Riviera sunglasses, and the Wonder Woman bracelets… and then these awful black capris. Who is this woman? Where is she going? She looks like she got all dressed up to order white wine in the back of an airplane.
I don’t see you in this. You can do better. Also, fuck you.

From The Herald Sun:
After serving up at a barbecue for Steelman, Palin served up an eyeful when she took the stage to address a gathering of several hundred supporters in the rural town of Cleveland, Missouri.
The laidback ensemble – a far cry from the tailored suits she is best known for – has set tongues wagging in the bloggersphere.
Diana Reese, a Washington Post writer, witnessed the outfit in the flesh and says that it didn’t lend Palin much by way of credibility:
“But it was hard for me to take Palin seriously dressed as she was,” Reese wrote.
“First, her shoes: Five-inch wedges. Her black capris weren’t quite skin-tight but tight enough, and her t-shirt with its Superman logo (a Steelman campaign shirt emblazoned with “Our freedom. Our fight.”) emphasized her figure. She never once removed her oversized sunglasses.”
None of that seemed to bother the crowd who waited over an hour for Palin to take the stage, where she backed Steelman, just days after Dick Cheney told ABC News that John McCain’s decision to pick the former Alaska governor as his running mate in 2008 was ‘a mistake’.
And having made an eedjit of herself in Missouri, it appears that it was all for naught. Sarah Steelman has lost.
