Bikini.Com Wants In On That Palin Action, Too
Apparently 61% of people who would fill out such a poll would rather see Supreme Leader Palin in her caribou fur bikini than Pamela Anderson (but to be fair, uh, who hasn't seen Pam in a bikini? When is she not wearing a bikini?).
"I think Ms. Palin has become the first political sex symbol," says Howie Sonnenschein, Executive Producer of Bikini.com. "Notwithstanding people's political leanings, many observers think that Ms. Palin is a beautiful woman and of course she has a history of being in beauty pageants. We've seen movie stars become presidents, and this is the first beauty pageant contestant that has a chance at getting into the White House [edit: might want to check JFK's sex diaries first]. We would like to officially make an offer to Ms. Palin -- if she ever wants to get the vote of our millions of Bikini.com fans, we'd be happy to do a swimsuit photo shoot with her in Alaska."
I'm not sure if I follow that "pose in swimsuit = get votes" theory. We all know what happened to Walter Mondale's 1984 campaign after he decided to do that ill-advised October surprise Speedo shoot.
