I was making a preliminary pass through the logs last night for Monday-morning search-engine fodder, when I happened upon this Yahoo! Answers query:
Does Sarah Palin ever wear nylons or tights?
Of the proffered answers, the one getting the nod was this: “Probably … but you have to get close enough to tell.”
Which seemed reasonable enough, I suppose. I note with some amusement that five Web links were given, two of which came back here, which explains why I saw it.
Then again, I also happened upon a TV Guide interview with Tina Fey, quoted in The Week, in which this was said:
When I first saw her, I didn’t think we looked alike at all. She’s got these super-straight white teeth and she’s got this really even caramel tan. She’s got legs for days.
And, well, we are talking the Land of the Midnight Sun.
Conclusion: If she is wearing them, it’s not to conceal flaws.
