Sarah Palin: Dominatrix Done Wrong

On Friday, Sarah Palin joined John McCain in Arizona for their first public appearance together since the 2008 election.

Instead of focusing on the politics of what Palin was saying — we’ll leave that to Mediaite — we want to take a moment and ask Sarah, who on earth told you to wear that jacket?

We’re all for politicians taking sartorial risks, and we frequently support Michelle Obama’s fashion choices — even when they include a leather over-the-knee boot. But Palin’s zipper biker jacket that she paired with a chandelier earring and her token librarian glasses seemed highly inappropriate and, frankly, ugly.

Are we at a biker rally? Or an 80′s hair band reunion? Perhaps Palin thought her way too-many-zippered bomber would simply scare people into listening to what she had to say. Well, grab your whip, Ms. Palin, you’re on your way to dominatrix status.

Our advice: if you’re gonna go for a leather jacket, opt for one of the Rick Owens ilk, because today’s look is eerily reminiscent of this. See?
