A lot, if you’re a new baby named after the current Republican candidates. A father in Tennessee put the name Sarah McCain Palin on the documents for his newborn’s birth certificate. And the baby girl’s mother knew nothing about it! That’s going to end up in court. The name is a far stretch from what Mom thought they decided on together, Ava Grace. Dad says he “…took one for the cause”. Um, I’m pretty sure your baby girl actually took one for the cause.
There seems to be more women who look like Sarah Palin than any other presidential or vice-presidential nominee before. Now a TV news anchor in Maine says she’s been getting “hate mail and nasty phone calls” from viewers who think she’s trying to copy the vice-presidential hopeful. She says this style is nothing new for her, that at times she wears her hair up and puts on glasses. She does admit the comparison is welcomed, saying Palin is a “beautiful woman”. But some viewers are accusing her of trying to subliminally sway votes. I guess that’s one way to do it!
