Sarah Palin's 'do is the subject of much speculation.
What's up with Sarah Palin's hair? Her signature sexy-school-marm beehive transformed overnight into the carefree wash-and-go look. Maybe she's hoping the new look will throw doppelganger Tina Fey off her trail.
Tina Fey's "Saturday Night Live" parody of Palin has become a cultural phenomenon and one of the most YouTubed videos online -- and all the attention isn't helping Palin. A Washington Post poll found that the "Tina Fey factor" is turning voters against Palin.
"Presidential impersonators do influence elections, and in this one, Tina Fey is well on her way to ruining Sarah Palin's political career," Jerald Podair, a professor of American Studies at Lawrence University, told the New York Post. Sure candidates change their look all the time -- Joe Biden is raising eyebrows for his suspiciously unraisable eyebrows (can anyone say Botox?). But Palin's new look says that she's trying to recast herself in a new light. It seems the endless parodies (even rappers, like White Rapper Show star John Brown, can't resist the urge to mock) seem to be taking a toll on Palin's choice of hair product."
