Palin Look-Alike TV Anchor Gets Hate Mail
Fox News ^ | Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Posted on 09/24/2008 10:55:41 AM PDT by WaveMan

A news anchor at a FOX affiliate in Maine has received “hate mail and nasty phone calls” from viewers who think she bears a striking resemblance to the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Cindy Michaels, a newscaster from FOX affiliate WVII-TV in Bangor, Maine, wears her hair up in a similar style to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and sometimes wears glasses.

“Since the day that McCain announced that Sarah Palin was his running mate, I had friends and family tell me that I look like her,” she said. “I don’t think I look like her, I think I look like me.”

Viewers have noticed the similarity, and Michaels has received phone calls from viewers that have gone from unflattering to just plain harsh.

“You’re so much more interesting and so much nicer than Sarah Palin,” one woman said. “We hope you don’t keep that hairdo. You don’t want to be tarred with that same brush. You know, she’s not coming off really well OK?”

This one is really bizarre. Pretty soon they will start hating the word “Palindrome” because it has Palin in it.

Man, she does look like her and her comments were smart and gracious. She’s probably a Republican.

Yep, she does sort of look like Sarah Palin.

Just shows the intelligence of the people in Bangor, Maine.

What will the next move of the deranged left be? Will they hang a sign in front of the White House saying that practicing Christians need not apply?

Just a few years ago Scarlett Johansen said she turned down the lead role in a new movie adaptation of South Pacific because she couldn't play a character whose name was Nellie FORBUSH. Deranged..simply deranged.

Not too far off the mark. Did you see where the homos in San Fran won’t buy Palin Shyraz now? It’s in FR somewhere.

There was a sutdy that came out a while ago suggesting that 1 out of 5 people had some sort of mental illness. I think they’re going to need to revise those figures.

Did ya ever notice how tolerant these libs are ? You know , if you don’t walk in lockstep with socialist elite you might be shunned by your own party . Intimidation is the fuel that drives socialism .

Frisco ites quit drinking a wine made in Chile named “Palin Syrah” because it reminds them of Sarah Palin. I’m going to try and find a bottle of it to celebrate the MCCain/Palin election in November.

What a bunch of completely retarded morons! These same people are the ones that will tell you they are the “enlightened” ones, and conservatives are racists, backwards, and whatever else they come up with.

I used to do photography at the elementary school in Fairplay, Colorado. It’s the only school in South park. The principal showed me letters written to Cartman, Chef, etc.. Some people didn’t understand that South Park was a cartoon and that the people didn’t exist.

....and we wonder why people vote for Democrats.
