Bristol Palin: Michele Bachmann Stole My Mom's Look

Bristol Palin: Michele Bachmann Stole My Mom's Look
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 at 11:19AM | Dave Odegard

Bristol Palin seems to have no problem speaking her mind while promoting her book.

First, she took a shot at Meghan McCain, then she told the press that her mom has already decided on whether she'll run for President or not.

Now, she's saying that she thinks Michele Bachmann copped her mom's style. Recently, Bristol told a reporter:

"I think she dresses a lot like my mom. But a lot, a lot of women have done that the last few years. I do think it's odd, you know, seeing people with red blazers with their hair up with glasses."

Look, as much as we would love a new feud to follow – we've got to disagree with you on this, Bristol.

Sarah didn't invent the hair up while wearing glasses look. It's a classic for a reason (think sexy secretary or hot librarian).

Also, a Republican wearing red? That's not exactly unique.

OK the media is really desperate here if they're asking Bristol to comment on the way her mom and Michele Bachmann dress. Quite honestly I don't think they dress alike at all, other than the fact most female politicians wear suits. But I hardly ever see Bachmann with her hair up and wearing glasses and she seems to wear dresses whereas Palin wears suits more.

Oh, she did? I don’t think they look alike at all.

LOL Bristol should be talking. Maybe about that plastic surgeon that gave her a new chin.

Just your normal trash from the twisted, liberal, hateful MSM. Here they really show how afraid they are of this lady, or any conservative lady for that matter.

The leftist MSM made their choice — I think they are worried how they are going to sell their trash after Obama is out of the White House....maybe the NYT will compete with the National Inquirer.

What the heck is this, “Mean Girls”????

Are we seeing a stereotype play out, namely, that women’s biggest enemies are other women??? That women are hardest on other women in criticism???

Open question — Is it sexism if women are denigrating other women publicly in this manner? Granted a man would never face such criticism, but, here the criticism comes from another woman.

As usual, ejdrapes posts something that he/she/it thinks is damaging to Governor Palin.

Nothing dealing with issues or Governor Palin’s positions on the issues.

Nothing of real value.

The true definition of a Troll.

-"Sarah didn't invent the hair up while wearing glasses look."

Who ever said she did?

All she said was that 'other people' were now disposed to take on this on for themselves.

Yes, the MSM is running with this for all it’s worth.

But Bristol really REALLY needs to shut her pie-hole. She and Miss Piggy McCain are going way too far over the edge of good sense.

OK, probably bad form here. The Governor probably had a little talk with her after that.

Just like I'm sure MB had with Mr Ed.

What a misleading article title...

I didn’t see “stole” or “steal” anywhere in the quote. Seemed more like an fashion observation.

Hey TBT, you may be on to something...

Lets see if MB has dropped the neck/wrist bling. Some of Bachmann's pics are a tad ostentatious.

She’s a young girl making comments that are normal for young girls. I’m not particularly faulting Bristol because I don’t see any malice and it’s silly to think this hurt Backmann or Sarah Palin.

I still think there is no benefit from Bristol or any other daughter or son of a candidate addressing the press. I wish she would refrain from doing so.

If this is from her book, it just bolsters my opinion that was a huge mistake.

I don’t know the Bachmann’s kids, I might prefer to have them in the spotlight more than Bristol.

But I know Gov. Palin is the tranformative political executive we need to defeat Obama and turn the country around.

As much as Sarah Palin is likable, Bristol is not. I hope her mom keeps her under wraps. The little bits of interview that I heard from Bristol on Dancing with the Stars didn’t make her likable one bit. I kept looking for her to acknowledge her coach, or thank him just once, but she never did. Even if she didn’t like him personally, she should have been more professional.

Picturs accurately reflect styles. Bachmann more of a dress chick. Palin in suits.

Wow, she is right up there with Megan McCain with that stuff.

Better yet:
Bristol Palin says mom has made presidential decision (June 28, 2011)

Sarah Palin contradicts Bristol Palin; Denies having made a decision (June 28, 2011)

Sounds like someone isnt ready to give us 'the news' yet. What a mystery :) No good MSM reporting Brisol's words, they are evil LOL.

Here’s the article from the reporter who says Bristol said this to him:

http://www.popeater.com/2011/06/28/bristol-palin-michele-bachmann-style-not-afraid-of-life/

“I think she dresses a lot like my mom,” Bristol tells me. “But a lot, a lot of women have done that the last few years. I do think it’s odd, you know, seeing people with red blazers with their hair up with glasses.”

Bristol added a giggle before continuing her thought about Bachmann, a Congresswoman from Minnesota. “I don’t know if she’s wearing glasses but you want to be hummmm, do you think that people don’t notice you’re dressing like my mom?”

Really like those pearl necklaces and bracelet in picture next to bus. Verty tasteful. She doesn’t hide her femininity.

Palin is too plain Jane in comparison.

Both ladies have their own style. Sarah Palin isn’t plain-Jane, just outdoorsy and laid back. Michele Bachmann is a little more formal. Both of them look fabulous.
